Thread: Putting the dry box in my car...

    Default Putting the dry box in my car...

    If I want to put my camera in a dry box then put the box in my car, will the heat trapped in the car affect the camera?

    I am concerned about the 'outside the box temperature', especially when I park my car under the sun for the whole day.

    How about the car boot?

    Any advice?

    The "outside the box temperature" will pretty soon be the same as the "inside the box temperature", no worries about that For the operating temperature range you may consult your manual. It's stated there. Transport can be lower or higher. But I'd recommend to take out the battery and keep them with you. Lithium-Ion batteries really suffer from high temperatures, it shortens lifetime and capacity.

    I'll not put anything that might not survive the heat in the car anymore.
    I had a watch spoilt + the VF of my film cam turned partly blue.

    can you tell me which part of your car will still be normal temperature if you park a car under the sun for a few hours? leave camera and lens inside the car park under hot sun is NO! NO!

    if you always on the go or need to leave the camera in the car for a short while, can consider get a large polyform ice box, put the whole camera bag inside, it will keep the camera in normal temperate for some time and also camouflage your gears.
