Putting my GL2 in the refrigerator...?

Hi,
Just a quick question. For a shot I am doing in a up coming movie, I need the camera to be inside of a refrigerator. It shouldn't be in there for more than 30-45 seconds, I just wanted to check to make sure that wouldn't affect the camera or recording in any way. Thanks for your help!

It should be okay.

It'll be fine. The camera's operating range, I believe, is above 32 degrees. No refridgerator should be below that. It would be like filming in 40 degree weather. No problem. The humidity could be an issue after a while, but certainly not less than a minute.

You might want to put a cove over the camera... Just in case something should decide to drip or leak.

I love in-the-fridge shots... post something if you get a chance later. ;)
