I got a Sony W1 and i will travel to France next month. Can you guys tell me how to keep the camera works well in such cold places??

P.S.W1 is using NiMH battery and can it stands long in winter?

Paris isn't that cold, but then I live in an area where the lakes are frozen over almost six months of the year. Cold compared toMalaysia, but not cold enough to worry about serious battery problems.

Condensation is the problem to watch for. When going from a cold area to a warm moist area, water will condense on your camera. If that starts happening, carry a plastic bag with you, and put your camera into it BEFORE going inside.

Why is that so good in getting me laughing?
Cold... in place where small amount of snow causes almost national emergency...

You should expect about zero temperatures, on the other hand big cities are always little warmer than general temperatures.

If you're worried about weather you can see predictions here:
Just select "2m Temperatur" and time from row of numbers which mean how many hours to future from prediction models execution time result is. (I assume finding France from that map isn't too hard)
