"V2 shutdown due to overheating"


Burnaby, CA
          

Just returned from 3 weeks in Thailand. Shooting a combination of stills and video with V2 at Water Buffalo demonstration and noticed that camera was getting quite hot. Had shot 17 short video clips (total 6.5 minutes - well under the 20min max) over a 23 minute period when the camera shut down. It wasn't cooling off very quickly (ambient air about 35C (95F)) so I held a dampened handkerchief against the left (hottest) side and was able to resume shooting after 6 minutes. My wife's V1 also got quite hot but she was shooting stills only and the V1 didn't shut down. We were in the shade at the time. Videos were 1080 30p. It's a hot little camera lol.

I guess the good news is that the camera shut down rather than running until it burnt something out.

Yeah, not very surprising. Maybe some enterprising person will come up with a cool gel body wrap for cameras?

Good idea. It's too bad they don't provide some warning, since they're obviously monitoring temperature.

Better idea: a heat sink, since on the V1/V2 it uses the magnesium body to dissipate the heat generated, it shouldn't be too difficult to pull it even farther away.
