Sony A6300 Has Overheating Issues During Video Recording?

The Sony A6300 mirrorless camera is slowly shipping out and some of the first A6300 users said that the new Sony A6300 camera had overheating issues during video recording – some users said they even had overheating issues in stills mode. Before the a6300 announcement there were rumors said that the Sony a6300 was delayed because of the overheating issues, now it seems that the overheating issues doesn’t get solved.

We know that overheating issues with Sony cameras are nothing new and any new camera are not perfect. So, I hope Sony can fix the overheating issues via firmware upgrade very very soon.

“Sadly pros can’t even rely on the A6300 as a B-camera due to the overheating, especially not for any kind of live filming or interview work at all.” (eoshd)

“Unlike my a5100 where i could just turn the switch on/off and it would just keep on shooting with a6300 if i turn it off and on the message appears again that it overheated and the camera shuts down. waited no kidding 3-4 min and turn it back on… same isssue turned off in less then 1 min.” (dpreview user forum)

“Got my a6300 as a “B” camera to my a7SII on March 11. I’ve used it exactly 4 times as a “B” camera while shooting the main footage with my a7SII workhorse. All 4 times, the a6300 went into overheat mode and shut down about 20 minutes into filming…. and that’s not 20 minutes of continuous recording either, just being on.” (dpreview)
