Re: To avoid video sensor heat problem: a VG30? (Or maybe a G5 or GH3)?

if they put something in their specs and it doesn't perform according to said specs, they have a right to complain. Some people have said they cannot even get 5-10 minutes without overheating in 70ish temperatures.

One solution might be to attach ram heatsinks on the back using thermal tape. First hand reports state that there was no shutdown at 30 minutes and the tape can be removed easily.
