D200 in Really Cold Weather
Siberia, Russia, at -31º C
The folks in Siberia read my "Nikon D70 in Cold Weather" page and thought -20º C (0º F) was nothing. They sent me these images by Ilnar A. Salachiev made in Novosibirsk, Siberia, Russia, with a Nikon D200 at -31 and -39ºC. You'll note the bank sign lit in bright red with the temperature in each shot.
Here's a shot at -39º C (-38º F):

I'm unsure how he did these. I'll let you know. I left my cameras in my freezer overnight, which is more severe than keeping a battery in a pocket and swapping it out.. Of course doing that risks condensation.
The D200 battery is rated for use between 40 and 0 degrees C (104 to 32 degrees F). Obviously it works beyond that.
