Write to Ricoh. Send your video.

Ricoh has my previous overheating video documentation and I did contact few Ricoh reps about this test scenario. If I can partially fix it then they should do this as well if not for this model then for upcoming one.

I found a solution

After multiple tests I made a small insert from copper tape (that I place in the gap between battery and inner side of a compartment) and it works very well.

Intervalometer set to 10 sec. and camera is operating for and hour, turning off with message 'battery depleted' instead of 'overheating' after 30 minutes.

BTW : Have you checked your camera against overheating ? I am curious if your camera can pass this intervalometer test (doesn't matter outside temp so you can do this anywhere).

My simple tests showing you that overheating is real and happening.

Bonus section includes 'missed' AF and really strange file sizes which might suggest various compression settings used for nearly same image.

I haven't noticed this yet but thank you for taking the time to share your findings.

Raw files are often compressed with lossless algorithms. Expecting them to be the same size is a mistake. Many raw formats are, sort of, zip files.

Telemach your whole argument becomes less credible when you add random misunderstandings to your list.

I don't see anything like this but as you see on video something else is going on with jpeg size.
