A lot of people appear to have this reversed.
A warm camera into a cold environment means it is LESS likely to fog up.
Of course the cold camera placed into the warm case might fog.

If you really need to do something, and I don't think you do, just put a light bulb in there and wire it to the ignition switch. A 35 watt bulb on a big METAL socket (to spread the heat) may do what you want. Anything on a small 9 volt battery will only give you heat for a few minutes.

I really don't think you need to do anything, just because your cold and wont function properly without heat doesn't mean your electronics wont ;) I've never had a real problem with electronics and the cold. Ive left my cellphone in my car by mistake in winter I don't even know how many times, I also ride with my camera\cellphone in below freezing weather and never have a problem.

Source: I live in Winnipeg if it hit single digits in winter here it would be considered extremely warm.

Drill a small hole and use a hose to transport some of the engine heat to the box.
