Re: RX100 Overheating During Video Capture
In reply to Sir Punk, 1 week ago

I own a mk 4. First time extended video use. Settings AVCHD 60P 28M (PS) tripod mount inside theater stage production. Overheating started @25 min. The cause of the overheating was the battery. I swapped batteries and had no problems for @ 10-15 min, swapped battery to a third (and last) got most of the 90+min play. This is unfortunately the type of recording that was of interest to me when I purchased this camera as a lightweight travel / daily walk around until pt allowed the return of my dslr. Swapping out a battry at an inconvient time is obviously not ideal. Think I might try a chemical cool pack in my next experiment.

Any other ideas from other owners would be welcomed. Otherwise this camera has delivered as advertised, very happy so far (except price).
