Anyone notice the V1 gets warm when shooting?

While shooting with the V1 yesterday I noticed the V1 getting quite warm. It was with the flash mounted on top and I shot about 180 images in about 90 minutes. I hope nothing ends up frying the camera if it's used intensely in a hot environment.

I really have not noticed any adverse warming. I generally don't shoot with the flash mounted or using it however.

Christmas Day did about 80+ images of the family at dinner. All of the images were with the SB-N5 Speedlight. Did not notice any overheating. That evening should have flushed out any problems of that sort.

I did notice my V1 getting warm while shooting an indoor swimming meet. The ambient temperature was probably around 82F or so. My V1 was on continuously for a couple of hours.

Yes

Gets warm if the camera is on for long. Gets positively hot if you shoot video over an hour.

No signs of malfunction though.

See that's what I don't do. I shoot stills 99.99% of the time. Perhaps if I use the video function, it will be warmer when in use.

AndreasE killed his V1 in Africa. when he was shooting vidio in a hot day.

I think the sensor is alway working that makes a V1 warm. it can be working in cold weather (30f/-0c) for hours the battery still works.
You may need two V1 for pro works.

Good to know, It didn't get alarmingly hot when I was using it. But it was quite warm. Thought it might have been the battery getting warm from driving the flash+camera. Lot's of stuff crammed into that small case ...

My V1 gets also warm when it’s on for a while.

I think we notice it because it’s a metal body with thin walls and no rubber grips to insulate the warmth.
