First day shooting 4k with A7iii, Overheating issue
5

Today was my first day shooting the A7iii, and I can verify that the camera overheats after about 15 minutes of shooting 4k video. Being familiar with this issue in the 6300, I tried the few tricks I know for example pulling the screen away from the body and opening the battery lid to allow more air to flow.  I was shooting in a warm room.  My 6300 was recording as my B camera, and unfortunately BOTH cameras overheated at about the same time, meaning I lost some valuable footage.  After a total of about 30 minutes juggling back and forth between the a7iii & 6300, I finally reached the point where neither would shoot any more and I was forced to take a 30 minute break in filming.
