NEX-7 is overheating in video mode!

Not sure if this makes a difference, but the battery life was @ around 28%.

Lens - The E-mount Sony 50mm F/1.8

60p manual video mode, AVCHD. F/1.8 aperture, 1/125 shutter speed.
800 ISO, 69 degree room temperature.

Overheat icon came on at around 5 minutes, then it completely shut off with the overheating warning at around the 8:30 mark.

Let it cool for about 2 minutes, switched to 24p. Overheated and shut off within 5 minutes.

This is no better than the 5n I had.

I cannot imagine a technical reason that the battery being low would cause this.
