What do I do to keep my FZ50's lensfrom fogging when going between a 70 deg F. inside environment, to a 10 deg F. outside winter environment to take some pictures,, then back in again?

Also any flash usage cautions?

Put the camera in a zip lock bag until the temp equalizes.

How does that work? What would it do to prevent the problem?

It is condensation that causes a problem when changing extremes like that .

So if its in a sealed bag the condensation forms on the bag instead of in the camera.

You must leave the camera change temps before opening the bag 5 minutes maybe.
