Question 7D heat build up

Hello

This question was posted in the Nikon forum but I received no responses (very friendly bunch).

I have a new D300s… yes it’s a Nikon, I purchased it to use my Nikon Micro lenses and also for a change from Canon everything…( I do have Nikon for my film stuff so I figured why not)

The camera works fine with the viewfinder but then gets really warm and uncomfortable when using it in live view. Especially video capture.

Since all my digital gear is canon but these don’t have live view…Im asking if this is normal because I don’t have live view to compare with say a 7D.

Do cameras why live view and video capability get really warm?. If I had a response from the other “owners” I would be knowing what to do and either return for a fix or keep or get the 7D.

My 20D does not have live view and runs ice cold.

Thanks for any comments.
