Recording time/overheating: Sony has done NOTHING to fix this problem on the NEX-5R

From the official manual for the NEX-5R:

"The continuous recording time of a movie depends on the ambient temperature or
the condition of the camera. When you are recording continuously for a long time, you may feel that the camera is warm. This is normal. Also, “Internal temp. high. Allow it to cool.” may
appear. In such cases, turn the camera off and wait until the camera is ready to
shoot again."

We are thus led into one of those geezer "if we can put a man on the moon" moments.  Sony has no excuse by now.  We've been actively complaining about this since the NEX-5.  The issue is infuriating, and enough to make me cancel my order for the NEX-5R.

You can bet that the NEX-6 suffers the same problem if they've made zero effort to eliminate this elementary flaw.

Comments about how these cameras weren't really made for video are UNWELCOMED.
