    Practice: it works but you have no idea how
    Here theory and practice meet, things don't work and I don't know why

    That's why I kept my camera gear (except the light meter) in my sister's unheated garage when visiting over Christmas. That way I can go out and photograph at any time. Temps are usually -10C or warmer.

    Taking the camera (4x5 to 8x10) and lenses inside risks condensation on any surface with air contact. While photographing, the spot meter goes in a cargo pocket of my heavy wool overpants, unless it is really cold and then I might put it under my jacket.

    PS I normally use the hold-my-breath method, or hold the darkcloth in such a way to deflect my breath out and away from the GG.
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    I probably look very odd indeed - but who cares

    I struggle with cold fingers which makes operating the controls difficult – how do you come on?

    I have a bottle of Glycerine (from the pharmacy). On the label it states "Keeps glass and mirrors fog free ".

    Martin,
    You would only look odd if you also wore the mask and fins as well.

    Why are there no speaker jacks on a stereo camera?

    Clean all your glass with "Rain-x" . This stuff really works--my bath mirror never fogs after use.

    I have had good luck when shooting ducks in the dead of winter with the nikon anti fog cloths. One application lasts most of the winter. I think it is similar to the silicone liquid. if your local camerA shop does not have them, try a shop which sells nikon sport optics ( binoculars, scopes, etc.). Hope it helps.

    keeping it outside makes sence as bring a cold camera inside will get condensation all over it, but I don't find it helps keep it from fogging. I find that a cold glass fogs instantly (and then freezes over) but while its warm its fine...

    Practical anti-fog tip:

    writing hidden messages on bathroom mirrors amuses spouses.
    f/22 and be there.
