I've got an out of the box question that I thought somebody here might have some insight on. I've got an interesting photo/video gig coming up that has some unique technical challenges. I'm going to be shooting a Bikram Yoga demonstration. What's Bikram Yoga? It's the yoga that is done in a REALLY hot room - Bikram Yoga is ideally practiced in a room heated to 105°F (≈ 40.6°C) with a humidity of 40%. (for more on Bikram check this out - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bikram_Yoga
I'm going to be in the room - there's no way around that and the demo will likely last about an hour. I want to shoot it with my Canon 7D - but i'm concerned/curious about the affect of the heat and humidity on the gear? beynd things fogging up and a very oncomfortable photographer, how well sealed is the 7D and will I risk killing it by shooting in this environment?
My back-up plan is to shoot the video with my GoPro HD Hero2 which I know can handle it, but I really wanted to use my 7D for the project.
any feedback or ideas would be great!
