This past Saturday, I went to use the Nex7 for shooting some musical perfeormances thatt were in a contest, non-contractual, sure enough, 3 minutes into it, overheat icon pops up. Class 10 card also.

What ISO were you using? As I posted in another thread, I've confirmed that high ISO is a contributing factor to overheating: ISO1600 cuts possible recording time in half versus ISO 100.


I just read that post, and I will experiment with that theory and post my results. I was shooting in low light, like most night clubs are, I used ISO 3200. This will be interesting.

Thanks for posting that also, might not fix the problem, may at least identify the what the problem is, this could help a little in regards to what iso you can use to get extended shooting times.
