in Resolute, NWT, Canada....not that it gets cold in the winter, but we kept the 4X4 in a garage that was heated to -40C......I have used CF tripods down to -55C with no problems. I just came back in after using one for some night sky pictures at -19C.... No problems.
And yes, slip your gear into a plastic bag before you come in to protect it from condensation... That's what I did and after 5 minutes the outside of the bag is soaked and as far as I can tell, it is dry inside.
-55c! where is that? i've been -30c in far north china and that was damn cold so cold my nikon at the time started to struggle to fire after 3 or 4 hours out doors not to mention how fast the batteries drained. and my eye lids kept freezing shut...
