I used this camera in Florida in semi-humid conditions. It was a three-day shoot and at the end of the first day, the LCD and Viewfinder went black. The camera was still sending the clean signal through the HDMI but there was no way to change settings. I got back from my shoot and contacted Sony. Long story short is that the camera was returned from Sony's repair place saying that it was "Beyond Economical Repair" because there was internal corrosion. The camera was never exposed directly to liquid and all I can think is that it was the humidity.
Bottom line is that Sony is not honoring the warranty due to the corrosion. So, after only owning the camera for a few months, I now have a brick on my hands. Because the only thing I did was use it in normal conditions, I'm totally bummed and disappointed in Sony.
I'm guessing that at least my camera had some problem with weatherproofing, but after a little googling, I found others with my same problem. So, I would be careful with this camera as it is susceptible to moisture.
