Heat - what does it do to a digital camera?

Living down here in the South it gets pretty hot... does anything happen to your digital camera (I have C-3040) if you leave it in the hot car for a while?

Besides what JD said, if you use the camera when hot expect to see lots of noise. For most CCDs every 6°C increase in temperature doubles the noise level.

I have seen a small film camera warped/melted from the sun when left in the car. None of the buttons/controls would move. Be sure to vent (slightly opened windows) the car if you leave it inside the car for too long. Cover it loosely with a light colored cloth out of the suns rays.I would not leave it in the glove box either.

Under the seat is the coolest place. If you need to keep it cooler than that, you could put it in an ice chest with one of those re-useable ice blocks. But that is going to the extreme I think. Of course if you want a good night shot with a long shutter, this might not be a bad way to go.
