Re: RX100 Shuts off after 23 minutes of movie recording

Well, haven't seen many people complaining about this limitation (which is common on other brands of compacts as well). Probably because a single camera shoot for over 30 minutes, especially one in a fixed position, can get pretty boring. Anyway, it would be interesting to know the actual reason behind this, as I somehow doubt taxation is to blame.

I suspected a thermal shutdown even though the camera stayed cool. Probibly a designed safety measure to protect components with a short duty cycle.
