I've not tried it, but I'd first put some tape over all the holes and gaps in the case where air can enter or exit, except over the lens opening of course, but even that can be covered with some very clear "sandwich wrap" plastic! I've done that successfully for splash proofing when mounted on a float plane, and could not tell the plastic was there. Then wrap or encase the entire camera in closed cell foam. You can make one from Styrofoam, or use something like the EPP foam sheet that sometimes is used to wrap objects for shipping... the thicker the better. That will insulate it better than anything and it's very light weight. And keep the camera in a warm place before flying.

If you try something like this and get good results, share the improvement I recording time and what you did here (a picture would help).
