as for any electronic or digital or any camera for that matter ther is no real way to keep them functioning properly in freezing temps. anythign that has moving parts may not work properly in cold temps. I pull mine out during the winter months, theres not much use for it in the woods during winter.

Any digital camera will have a working tempiture which the camera is ment to work in. Some cameras are built to work in colder weather then others, sorry I am not familuar with your camera, but look up in the manual to see what it says. TO make a camera (alter or force) work outside it's normal range could cause damage to its control boards as they normally have precautions to shut down when out of normal range.

If you are talking about the camera freezing up inside it's normal operating range, then I would say that would most probually be casue by batteries. When you use rechargable batteries, as they get colder, their reserve power will drop and when the tempiture rises again, the reserve power will rise again. That is just the nature of rechargable batteries. The colder it gets, the lowerr the reserves become.

Good luck.

I'm still learning the ins and outs of my Cuddeback and haven't had it out in the field during bitter cold (around these parts, bitter cold is maybe 20 deg. and below). My Cuddeback book does give this tip: "BATTERIES FAIL SOONER IN COLD TEMP. WHEN TEMPS. ARE BELOW 30 DEG. F, YOU MAY WANT TO CHANGE BATTERIES WHEN THE BATTERY LEVEL IS 2". I can find no other mention of cold temp. operation. I have seen many quality pics on here with lots of that white stuff around..... Ray
