As more ‘photography’ cameras include top-notch video features, processors are running for longer which in turn makes them produce more heat. If you’re in an already-crowded room or warm environment, the ambient temperature can already be a bit higher than usual and therefore some cameras are known to simply shut down when the temperature threatens their operation. Eric Strebel was running into this issue with his Lumix GF7 and decided to strap an old PC heatsink to the back of the camera body!
This video is about HotRoding and adding a removable aluminum PC Heatsink with some Piano/Music wire to a Panasonic MFT camera to prevent it from overheating in certain situations while recording video.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
