Looks nicely put together. I like the heat sink, but no shielding on CMOS?

I think the shielding and heat sinking is built into the PCB, you can see the big heat transfer pads for transferring the heat into the, err, I think Canon would call it a magnesium alloy chassis - you don't normally see things like that in action cameras :D

Looks like the lens holder is metal too.

If you look around the base of the threads, you can see the glue they used to hold it in place. Holder looks similar to the A119.

Anyone have a link to the camera sensor used in the F1?

That's a shame. I suppose that applies to quite a few of the test cameras out there.

Test cameras can have different hardware between each, depends when it was made.

I'm particularly interested in finding out how the F1 holds up in hot weather at 4K, more or less the only thing that held me back from pre-ordering.

I think it will do fine as a action camera that is, prolonged use on a windecreen in a hot summer is a whole other ballgame.
Just look at the guy that melted a SJ 7 star, i have not heard of that happening in regular use as a action camera.
