#4. "RE: It's cold!"
In response to In response to 3

St Petersburg, RU

From my own experience cameras do fine, but shutter speeds can vary in extreme cold. Like other as mentioned, keep spare batteries next to your skin so keep them warm and to warm them up after being removed from the camera in a swap.
My biggest problem with winter shooting is keeping hands functional, particularly with larger all metal lenses that can drain every bit of warmth in your finger in a couple minutes. Mittens are used mostly in really cold climates but they are not great for small buttons and multi-selector switches. The coldest I have shot is mid day temperatures of -57. When really cold, there is little moisture in the air so the only time condensation is a problem is when re-entering a warm building where the humidity is a lot higher. Just before entering the house, put the camera and lens in a zip lock freezer bag and seal it. Set it aside until it raises to room temperature and there should not be any fogging or condensation.
Once I figure out some flexible warm hand protection I will start enjoying winter photography again.
