Re: Hands-On Sony NEX-6 & 16-50mm OSS images & other E-Mount Lens


a 15min video clip is not sufficient enough to confirm any improvements in the overheating department.  The other nex cameras would sometimes make it to 29min clips without overheating.

The problem lies when trying to record consecutive 29min clips one after the other.  The Nex7 and Nex5n both make it to the 29min clip without overheating (Warning comes on around 11min however).  However neither of these cameras can record another 29min clip consecutively without overheating well before the 15min mark.

To test this issue i would assume you would need to shoot video with the NEX-6 for well over an hour with multiple consecutive recordings to diagnose any improvements.

do these cameras overheat at lower resolutions. high video resolution places a load on the camera both in terms of disk i/o (though disk i/o to an sd card probably doesn't create a lot of heat) and cpu. so i wonder if the overheating problem is reduced if you shoot at 720p.
