You're unlikely to encounter issues in Singapore but be careful when abroad. There have been many documented cases of tourist having their gear stolen from the locked boots of their rented cars.

Nope. I don't even leave it for anything longer than 15 minutes in my car unattended, especially on a hot day.

Apart from theft. I guess the few hours heat won't hurt the camera hoh.

It may.... the heat in SG is murder... and when you leave it in the boot, the temp can go as high as 40 - 50°C

never in view. always in the boot if i have to leave it in the car - and put it in the boot before u get to your destination or else you're just shouting out to everyone that u have a dSLR waiting to be stolen in your boot.

Electronics die faster in high temperatures, and sensors have VERY fine electronics. I have been told by Fujifilm specifically that heat is quite a killer. I recommend that you don't keep your cameras in a hot place (like a car in the hot sun) or place your dry cabinet on the wall with direct afternoon sun.

Lenses etc not so badly affected.
