    That's also similar to the Komodo(just much smaller). The Komodo cooling tunnel, while obviously open and a pass-thru for air, is sealed off from the true inside of the camera.

    Okay. I think we're on the same page, now. It's more a Sony complaint, than a camera complaint. My P2 VariCam will shoot from 1fps to 60fps in one frame increments. But of course, what it plays...
