Keep the camera in an inner/warm pocket. Most batteries stop providing adequate juice when they reach a certain temp (mine stop at/around 0C).

Take lots of pictures, thanks to digital technology, film is cheap!

use the highest quality setting you can (based on the amount memory you have).

Don't use the zoom too much, they tend to interpolate too much data (on the macro setting) and get a little fuzzy/pixelated. You can always digitally zoom with photoshop later (which does a better job anyways).

The optical will work well, and that was an afterthought when I posted (good catch). I never use my digital zoom either (which you need to turn on your LCD/preview display for in order to work properly).
