5d MK lll Overheating?

I haven't heard anything about this since the release. Anybody have issues, or did Canon fix that one, too?

I've been waiting three weeks for mine. Should get it sometime this week. I'm like a kid on Christmas Eve.

I haven't heard of (or experienced) any problem with the 5D3 overheating. That said, it was never an issue with my 5D2 either, even on long shoots. AFAIK the overheating issue was limited to particular models like the 7D.

Enjoy.

My 7D has overheated a few times but my 5D2 never. A combination of good weather sealing and two processors in the 7D I think. Ruined a couple of shoots for me in the past.

Don't know about the 5D MkIII. My T2i would overheat after about 40 minutes of solid recording. My newer T3i has never overheated.

Encouraging replies, all.

I've never had an overheating problem with my 5D2, but I recall some folks saying they did.

Re: 5d MK lll Overheating?

I once had overheating when using a very early, alpha version of Magic Lantern on a tripod with the LCD in the direct sun. I've never experienced overheating since (with or without ML.)

Having a white cloth to cover the camera in the sun is good practice.

Re: 5d MK lll Overheating?

I'll give the real test here in hell...I mean Phoenix...in a couple of weeks. Going to be outside on the tarmac at an airport for a shoot for several hours. Don't know if it will be the 115 deg test I put my T2i and 7D through but it should be over 100deg!
My 7D and a buddy's 5D mkII survived a desert shoot last August with only a couple of warnings. I then did a 3 day shoot in NOLA with 90% humidity and temps in the 110's. Kept the 7D covered with a towel and shut off between takes and never saw a warning.
I hope the mkIII is as good or better!

Re: 5d MK lll Overheating?

Would be good to see if Canon put anything a little different in to help with the heat. The whole "it's a still camera from the outside" design thing maybe doesn't apply to the inside anymore. With the summer wedding season coming up I'll have to keep tabs on people I know who have them.
