In the past, I have used a few compacts (canon sx110, olympus 800 uz) just over 6000m with no problem mainly because the weather conditions were quite good with the sun out.

I assume the cameras stopped working on Kilimanjaro is because the temperatures must have been quite cold.

This was not a temperature problem.

There has to be some explanation as to why the camera stopped working? I am thinking maybe a lot of humidity.
