The other day an old student called me. As we were discussing the joys of digital, he mentioned that he’s really glad he no longer has to worry about heat or sun damage to his film. I remember using an ice chest to hold my film on summer shooting trips. But then he mentioned leaving his new digital camera in the glove compartment of his car. Not a good idea.
You don’t want your digital camera to get too hot. The various solvents and grease inside the camera can melt and gum up your DSLR but good. Also, hot image sensors produce more image noise. So while you no longer have to keep your film cool, treat your digital camera and lenses with the same care as your film-loaded camera…Just to be safe.
