Joe, I use a couple of different pairs of gloves/mitts/liners depending upon the the temperature outside. My fingers get cold very quickly so my choices are based on my comfort levels.
I have several pair of glove liners in different weights, from silk to fairly heavy tech fabric that is "water resistant" and wind proof.
On the cool days of fall, I will wear a pair of PL 150 (Outdoor Reasearch) liners only and carry a light pair of mittens to slip on if needed.
When the temps start to drop, I switch to a pair of PL400 liner from the same company. Good dexterity and warm enough for me to around 0C.Again, I keep a pair of light weight polar fleece mitts in my pocket if needed.
When the temps drop into the minus range then I start packing the serious stuff. Heavy mitts and heat packs.
Check in a local hunting store for "glove/mitts"" Basically a light glove that has a cover for the fingers. (https://www.amazon.com ...-1&keywords=hunting+mit​ts (external link)) I found a pair that also had a zipped pouch to place a heat pack in. While they may not be as warm as a full mitten, combined with a pair of silk glove liners, effectively doubling the glove thickness, they can keep my fingers nice and warm down to -20C for a few hours and still allow me to operate my cameras. Toss a heat pack into them and I can stay out all day.
When it gets really cold, I use the PL150 liners with a pair of down filled mittens. I put "idiot strings" on both mittens since I have a tendency to loose stuff not attached to me :)
Just pull the mitten off, take the shot and put it back on.
I also use a "hunter hand muff" that works extremely well if I am setup and stationary for a length of time.
A lot of my outings are just that, hurry up and wait so keeping the extremities warm in frigid temps is crucial to me.
A combination of glove liners and mittens with the heat packs can keep me out longer than is sane. :)

If you are serious about keeping your hands warm while shooting and you are willing to spend what it takes to accomplish that goal then get a pair of Heat 3 gloves and I can just about guarantee that you will be satisfied.

I bought mine before they came out with the removable liner system. If I was buying them today I would probably get borh the polartec and merino liners to go with the shell. Even in bitter cold temperatures the liners will keep your fingers comfortable for at least a few minutes and if you load up the handwarmer compartment you will be able to warm your hands back up quickly as needed. I was comfortable on several all day shoots last winter while photographing great gray owls.

I use these. The best investment I ever made for cold weather shooting.

I have finger gloves, hunting gloves and at the moment trying out Valleret photography gloves. These are made by photographers for photographers https://t.co/krghYC4g5​T (external link). Link gives 15% off your first pair of gloves.

The Markhof Pro model is for cold autumns and I wouldn't not recommend it for winter days. But the Ipsoot is heavy duty for cold winter days. Good fit and has non slip material.
