What helps to reduce overheating problems:

  • pull the LCD screen

  • reduce LCD luminosity

  • disable recording of sound if you do not need it

  • use a fast SD card

I recently went to Crete and shot video with a Nex-5N on a minitripod in a car. The camera was in direct sunlight and it was very hot inside the car.

Still after doing the above (especially after disabling sound and reducing luminosity since I always pull the LCD screen )I managed to record the 29m59s clips.
