Hi

I live in Canada, which means it can get very, very cold in winter. Summer, fall, and spring are acceptable temperatures for most of the year, but late fall is similar to winter. How cold is too cold to bring your camera out? Is there an inexpensive way to keep it at a reasonable temperature in very cold conditions, or do you have to have special weather-proofing and the like in order to shoot in -40 C conditions? I want to be able to bring my camera out and shoot the mystical wintery scenes, but will I simply have to suck it up if the temperature happens to be -35 C with falling snow and wind?

Sure you can shoot with a temperature like -40, but your camera probably is gonna be slower than usual, I mean the menu part and etc. Also it`s not that great overall for your camera. I used to bring my cam with me, from +40 to -40 everywhere, it`1s still alive, but dying faster than it should.
