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.

Lens Protection Size!!!


Get a CLA-1 lens tube. It screws into the camera body. The other end accepts 43mm accessories. Put on a 43-49mm step-up ring. Into that screw a 49mm UV filter. (The step-up ring is needed to separate the filter from the extended lens.) Leave the UV filter on at all times. Throw away the lens cap.

If I take hi-res pictures with the 3040 how much can I manipulate the image on my PC to zoom in while still maintaining quality?


Digital zoom in the camera means nothing. You can't create detail that isn't there. Enlarging and sharpening on the PC can produce much better results than in-camera digital zoom - no more real detail, but a better illusion of detail by enhancing edges. You can print up to about 8x10 with the 2100 or 11x14 with the 3040, but a zoomed in 2100 8x10 will probably be a more spectacular picture than the 3040's 11x14, unless you can get equivalently close to your subject. Also, the more precise viewfinder of the 2100 can make up for the difference in resolution. With the 3040, you are more likely to need to crop to print your desired view (unless you can use the LCD), since you can't see exactly what you are going to get when using the optical viewfinder and will tend to get more periphery than you want.
