From what I understand, cold isn't terrible for your camera, however when you take your camera from the cold and bring it into a heated enviroment, that can cause problems. The warmer air will cause condensation to form on your cold camera (THIS IS BAD), you can solve this by putting your camera in a zip lock bag in the cold BEFORE you bring it into the warmer enviroment. By doing this you will stop the condensation from forming on your camera.
Hope this helps

Watch for condensation and keep your batteries warm, but otherwise you should be fine. I regularly take my C-720 out backcountry skiing and winter hiking down to -20F and it works just fine.
