Sunrise at Badlands NP South Dakota.

This is an amazing NP. The geology and landscape are one of those you gotta see to believe. If you are ever in Western South Dakota, this is a must see.

I live a short day's drive mostly north and a little east of here. We also have a "badlands" here in the Theodore Roosevelt National Park, which is only a couple of hours and I have been to many, many times. Different but similar, which is better depends on where you are from. :)

You could wait until it was cooler. But I wouldn't wait too long. This corner of the world gets MUCH cooler in the winter. They tend to get a lot of snow around the Rapid City / Black Hills area. I would restrict visits from about May to October - some years April is OK, too - unless you really like colder weather.

I'm planning on taking a trip this weekend to the hot hot desert of Nevada for a memorial service and wanted to prevent any camera damage if I leave them in the car. So, I thought I'd re-purpose this Omaha Steaks cooler. My bag just fits inside.
What do you think?
I hope to photograph Hoover Dam this trip, time permiting.

I know the cooler won't be 'cool' inside, but at least it shouldn't be as hot as inside say the trunk of the car.

Conservative old me doesn't like exposing things like camera's to the extremes of a closed up car, especially when it's going to be 105+ degrees out. Even though my car is white it'll still get plenty hot inside, even with the windshield sun screen up.

The official operating temperature for the A7iii is 32 - 104 degrees F. It can go outside those bounds, of course, I've taken plenty of pictures at well below 32 degrees F. But like you I would do what I could to keep the temperature down.

Better safe than sorry, as my wife would say.

Living in Phx in the summer I have never had issues with overheating. Just don't leave it on in the car and removing the battery is always a descent idea.

I will often use a cooler of some type to keep my camera in if I have to leave it in my car... The secondary reason I do this is protection from heat (can't hurt) but, the primary reason is safety from theft.

IMO, using a cooler, like a soft sided lunch cooler, allows me almost instant access to the camera. However, I really doubt if someone would break into my car to get at a cooler which in most case would contain a ham sandwich and a drink...

This is a scenario in which a little extra care might prevent problems but, certainly would not add any problems...
