Re: Overheating 7d

i have had tons of overheating issues shooting indoors in a hot studio - luckily we were shooting long form narrative that needed some breaks with no client around looking.

I plan to upgrade the firmware, but I dont think ill get the batterygrip as it wouldnt work with the mounting rigs I usually use.

We try to keep a fan on the camera in studio when we can - we use an external monitor most of the time - i have not noticed any different between using that and the monitor when it comes to overheat.

Those really long takes makes it heat up fast - I dont know if this is the right camera for covering live events

Re: Overheating 7d

I went out and brought a 60D, It has never once overheated like my 7d does and once you got with a swivel LCD you will never want to go back.

Re: Overheating 7d

I would say that the 7D isnt for interviews or live events. It should also be cooled down before you shoot any narrative sequence / action sequence that you cant repeat.

I love my 7D, but I think that might be a good rule for picking the right tool for the job. I have a 5D to compliment the 7D.

I have shot approximately fifty weddings and a dozens of long form interviews and other live events with 4 7D's. I have only encountered the overheating warning twice. Both of those incidents were in extreme outdoor heat and please note that in both cases, the 7D's kept recording.

Re: Overheating 7d

It's funny I saw this thread come up again and what's weird is I haven't had an overheating issue in about 12 months, even had a shoot last summer when the glue melted for my lcdvf viewfinder and I was shooting constantly. Fingers crossed it keeps going like this.

Re: Overheating 7d

My 7D had the overheat icon for the first time over the weekend.
Granted, I was shooting in 38C+ heat in Sydney... scorcher of a day.
At least the 3M sticker from the LCDVF didn't come off...

In the end, there's nothing we can do.
I'm yet to have the camera shut down on me.
I've used a 5D mk2 and it's shutted down before!
My 60D is yet to go through this torturous journey with me... maybe next time?
But being a plasticky body, I don't think it holds heat that well, so the build up of overheating might be less of an issue.

Re: Overheating 7d

I just shot a one hour concert with both my 7D and 5D - neither overheated this time. I manually controlled both.

A couple of months ago, I was shooting closer to the stage lights and had the 7D controlled by an IR remote to auto-resume every 11.30mins did over heat (or stop) once.
