Hmmm... Would you guys leave your camera in a car on a 100 degree day? Even with the windows cracked?

It's not the heat, it's the risk of being stolen.

Yes? Just put it in your bag so it's not in direct sunlight. Mine sat in the trunk of my car on and off for the last week. It still works.

there are some issues with old minolta lenses and heat. the oil that lubs the aperture blades will start to lose viscosity and run down the blades causing the shutter to stick. I duno if thats an issue with other companies lenses.

but i do keep my gear in the trunk of my car from time to time. nothing bad has happened yet (knock on wood....).

Just got my 7MDH -- much smaller than I had imagined, it fits inside my Banjo Bros. medium messenger bag:

I think the only thing you might want to avoid is rapid extreme changes. And that's just off the top of my head. Going from an air conditioned house to humid outdoors will usually result in condensation which will go away in a short while, it's just the inner electronics that might be a problem. But they're probably coated with a protective film anyway.

I've left superteles in a hot trunk for hours on end at field events and never had a problem.

Well, it's going to be a non-issue... Turns out the photo passes can't be separated from the rest of the press package. Now I'm ticked that my friend is +1'ing my friend who isn't gonna contribute anything to the interviews or to the material my friend can work with and really just wants to say he met people...

I think it could be awesome, but at the same time I don't want to break my camera, and it's also going to be 100 degrees tomorrow (heat index of 110), so in the event that I can't get the passes I'm worried about leaving the camera in my car for a few hours, even out of sight with the windows cracked open. I'm getting there after my buddy though, so I told him to text me the minute he figures out so I can decide what to do. Still debating...

Should be a sweet concert. The headliners are Trivium, Megadeth, Godsmack, and Disturbed. In Flames is also playing a side stage, which could probably be some of the coolest shots seeing as it would be outside of the shed at the venue. I'm actually vaguely sad that Trivium is a headliner this year instead of a supporting act, as the last time I saw them at Mayhem I was literally ten feet away from the stage and now I'll be a couple sections back... Also surprised that Godsmack and Disturbed have higher billing over Megadeth.
That's awesome. I'm seeing Godsmack for the third time at the end of august.
I really should hit up some contacts and get a press/photo pass for some concerts.

EDIT: ninja'd

So lame. I'd break the other friend's legs so I could go instead.

Offer to buy him some beer or something. Beer and food are great motivators.
post #14310 of 29551
Well it's too late. I had to work until noon today and I'm leaving in a bit (don't need to see the early bands...), but their first interview was at 1 so they're already down.

And I can't buy him beer... Not 21 yet

EDIT: And I don't want to break his legs! He's my bodyguard at concerts, lol. I'm 5'10" and only 140 pounds, whereas he's 6'7" and 320 pounds... He saved me from getting sucked into a huge circle pit at Cool Tour last year, lol.
