Using c300 mk II in extreme hot/humid conditions


Hi all! 

I'm looking to purchase a used c300 mk II for doc commissions I shoot for a client that doesn't need super glossy raw, 60p or anything like that.

I've done a good amount of research so far and am pretty convinced that the c300 ii will suit my needs at least for the next year+.

The only key point I haven't been able to find a whole lot of info on is real-world use cases of the C300 II in extreme heat and humidity. The 'tested' op temps of -5 C - 45 C @ 60% humidity etc are easy to find, but what I'm looking for are accounts of 1st hand experience working with the C300 II in say, a forest fire or mine shafts.

I recently filmed a commission in the emerald mines in Colombia where the humidity was most likely north of 95% with a camera that definitely is not built to handle that type of environment, so this is the type of use cases that I'm looking for with the C300 II.

Any help is greatly appreciated!
