So I'll be shooting out in the sun for the next few weeks. My camera was overheating in the sun a few days ago and switched bodies for safety reasons. The flash at the end of the shoot was warm and the AA Ni-CD batteries were burning but the temperature warning never showed up on the flash.
I was carrying extra batteries on my backpack (AA and camera ones) and they were warm, as with everything else.
I'll be out carrying my gear in the heat (during the hottest parts of the day). Is there any advice on carrying extra batteries in the sun or in use during the day? I don't have a backup flash but I have a backup body so that will help the shoot there.
Am I being paranoid about my Eneloops exploding under use in a flash and my camera batteries going bad?
