Re: NEX-7 is overheating in video mode!

Overheating is an issue with the 5N, but I haven't heard much about the 7 doing the same, let alone overheating at only 8 minutes!

My 5N will (generally) show the overheating icon at around 15 minutes of continuous recording in 24p. Sometimes it makes it to the full 29 minute limit, other times it powers off at around 20-25 minutes.

Obviously, shooting in 60p puts more strain on the device, so overheating would happen sooner. I've found that extending the screen all the way up and out helps to dissipate some of the heat.
