X-T30 overheat after 50 minutes 4K shooting

My X-T30 has became very hot after 50 minutes 4K shooting, also - it showed the overheat status in red lettters, so it auto stoped the last recording.

I didn't take any breaks between shoots, the same battery and the sma card.

My question is - is that normal? Did it caused any damage to camera? How could I make shootings last longer? Probably - make breaks? Lower the MBPS rate? Also - my backup battery is from my X-T10 - is ot OK to use it?

Would external HDMI recorder also be a solution?

it's normal for any camera to overheat, especially while recording video...especially 4k, which needs a lot of processing power

you didn't damage anything as the camera shut itself down before that. let it cool for a bit and continue

 

i guess you weren't following the internet meltdown over the "absolute failure" which was the canon r5 overheating when recording 8k...since then every camera is "tested" for how long it records before overheating 🙄

Yes, thanx, I see...

Anyway, The 4K shoots with my X-T30 are great :)

You are actually getting pretty decent times. As @andrei89 mentions, testing recording times until shutdown is now a regular issue. Here is one test:

Your time is holding up well against the X-T4. 😊

You might be tempted to slap a frozen gel pack on the bottom or wrap one around the body to keep it cool, but be careful because it will bring a lot of condensation and the water drops are not a good thing.

Some third party manufacturers are building cooling cases based on using thermoelectric cooling (for go-pro stuff or smart phones, etc.), they may have something for dslr/mirrorless bodies as well or give you an idea that helps you build a diy case.

Fujifilm’s X-H2s is going to come with an optional fan, which will not help you, but does show they are working to make things better.

    • Take the Fuji and save some budget. But keep in mind the Fuji has an APC-C sensor, so the effective focal length you get is about 42mm.
    • How do I lock X-E1 exposure in video mode? It's stuck on auto, and the only thing it can be adjusting is ISO, as the shutter is locked at 24fps, and I'm using a vintage Nikon lens - so manual f-stop. I know its not designed to shoot video, but I find it hard to believe a camera of this quality that offers video at full HD 24fps, would not allow an exposure lock function. Without exposure control, the video mode is useless. 
    • I want to share some thoughts with you in order to help me choose the right camera.  I sold almost my photographic equipment and I kept only 2 cameras.  Ricoh GRII and Fujifilm XT5 and some lenses ( 10-24/4 & 35/2 & 56/1,2 & 16-80/4)  My project for the next years is to visit cities and countries around the world and taking street photography and some landscape photography and publish some books with these photos.  Street photography is 80% of my photos now. The rest is landscape photography. Here some key points I want to take only one camera and one lens. No big cameras, no lenses, no bags anymore. I like to be more minimalist in my philosophy to take photos and in my life generally.  I shot 95% Jpeg not RAW. I know the benefits of RAW in editing, dynamic range etc but all cameras has anymore very good jpeg. And it’s ok for me. If a camera has RAW and JPEG I choose this option and keep RAW for the future when I print the books. Then I will edit my final photos for the printing. I I like 28mm not 35mm I sold my Canon and Fujis and I have 8.000$ in stock. For my new camera and for my first trips.  I read many reviews and I decided to buy one of these 2 cameras for my basic camera.  Leica Q3  Or  Fuji X100 VI with 28mm lens  Would you like please to send me your opinion about this dilemma? Which you would prefer Leica Q3 or Fuji X100VI and why?  Thank you  Greg Plat. 
    • I currently have my GFX100s camera in to the Fuji repair shop in Canada but I hear they redirect everything to a central North American one in the US.  (Which might explain part of why there is a delay in getting a diagnostic.). The answer so far is that they want to charge me $400 to do a "more advanced" pixel mapping than is available on the firmware mapping.  If that doesn't work then they recommend a sensor replacement but have not quoted that price yet. I have liked everything about the GFX100s (almost everything) until this started getting worse.  I usually only see it in portrait work when I'm working in more moody, low key setting - which unfortunately is a style I like to work on.  I can see the problem going back to six months after I bought the camera but it was not as strong and I treated it as typical bad pixel mapping.  Except that was only a temporary fix. I'm also reluctant to replace the sensor since the last one barely made it a year.
    • Hello. After years of Nikon, I started shooting vintage Leica's. Last year, just for fun I bought a Fujifilm X-T1 and an X-E1, because they were so cheap. I still regret not having done so 10 years ago. Wow. Fuji is perfect. So 3 weeks ago I bought a brand new X-T5. But something was wrong with my experience, with the T5 because I still use the other cameras. Today I noticed that the focus peaking highlights, which I use in red, do not switch off when halfpressing the shutter. I was happy to have found the mistake and started looking in the menus to configure the camera. You may guess that I did not find "the box to tick or untick". At work we checked a friends X-T4. Everything was right. After work I started searching in the PDF manual. Nothing. So I started googling and after some minutes I knew that I just had experienced my first bad Fuji experience. Reading here that people have been complaining 6 months ago, I now know that Fuji doesn't care. I fear that it was a mistake to buy the X-T5. I should have bought a used T3 or T4. I will also kindly contact Fuji. But if this will not be addressed within the next months, I will dump the T5. I also was thinking about starting a GFX adventure, but unfortunately that will be postponed.
