Topic - D3000 in the cold

Bob_the_Builder - on 02 Jan 2013
I'm going on a skiing/wandering around trip to the alps at the end of January, and I'm planning on taking my Nikon D3000. I'm wondering how noticeable the loss of battery life will be, having never really taken it to a cold place before. My friend said when he was there last year in got down to -10/-15 though I don't really know, I'm just gonna take enough clothes for a lot colder and see what happens.

I'd also like advice about filters, I know a lot of people use a filter so they don't need a lens cap, is that a reasonable option?

As a third thing (I don't know anything about cameras and cold obviously) I've taken it out in Scotland winter a few times and when I get it home, even when dry, the thing is all condensed up. Any suggestions on how to avoid that?
