FS 700 in the hot sun

After shooting an agriculture field school from 8 am until 3 pm in the hot sun on Tuesday I had a problem.

No, not with the FS 700! With my self! Too much sun! I had shot all day in regular speed and thought I'd grab a slow motion shot walking through a crop on the way back to my vehicle.

I shot the clip, closed the screen, waited a few seconds and then turned the camera off. Then realized it was slow mo and perhaps the camera had not finished processing etc. $#@% etc. I slowly flipped the screen back up and even though it was turned off, it was still working. It finished what it had to do saved the clip and then tuned itís self off.

I turned it back on to check the clip and to my relief all was OK. Not sure if that was just luck or a feature of the camera, but I wonít do that again.

Liking this camera more every time I use it.

cheers
Morton

Re: FS 700 in the hot sun

i had the same and was "s**t i forgot that the slomo is writing..." and then i saw that the camera still writes it to the card and powered off when its finished :)

so i guess its a feature, a good one.
