Re: I think his list of criticism about GR3 is fairly pertinent.

"if LCD is the source then swapping a battery won't make a change; sure LCD is adding it's temp to the overall (lcd+cpu+battery) but battery is crazy hot"

If the heat from the camera is accumulating in the battery compartment then the battery will be overheated and putting a new battery in it will start the process all over again. In which case the battery is not the source of the heat but it is acting as a heat sink. If the use of the battery is the source then again putting a new battery in the camera will also start the process all over again. I do not believe anyone has proven where the cause of the overheating is exactly located in the camera, only that the battery compartment becomes very warm, and only if the LCD screen is left on for a long period of time. Putting ventilation holes, a heatsink, etc., may reduce the overheating in your case, but that does not mean the camera has to be made larger.

We can keep going around in a circle, but doing a negative review that can only result in a meme with a frown and a thumbs down, seems a bit strange to some of us. It would only take one negative in your review to reach the same conclusion. Every camera has plus's and minus's, but that would mean all cameras, all automobiles, everything, would result in a thumbs down. Which is why reviews of any products have a list of positive findings (usually) and a list of negative findings.
