DSLR Camera Running Hot? Strap a Heatsink to it!

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.
