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.
