I have a few winter scenes to shoot and am wondering if I can shoot them with my Canon XL2? The camera is rated for 0 to 40C. The scenes will be done on days where the temp will reach -7C to -5C. Is there a problem? I know I have to watch going into a warm location after being outside, but will the camera work outside for a two hour shoot?

There are some small plastic bags you can get at sports shops to put into your mittens, that will heat up and stay heated for an entire day once opened. We've tried to use them on the Pro35 adapter when shooting outside in the cold, not with great effect, but I guess you could try to attach them to your camera to keep it warm. Our experience was that they didn't seem to keep as warm when attached to our equipment, as they would when held in our hands.
Hope this helps.
