    It's the huge draw on the battery (shooting in 4k) that heats it up. Having an external battery removes the heat source from the battery chamber.

    Yeap I know this is why I too want to get a way to remove the battery from the body thus removing a big heat load from this tiny mass that the a6300 is.

    So I am sorry for asking again but I am not sure I got the answer I was looking for, did you get any overheating with the a6300 when using external battery or this solved the problem for you ?

    It doesn't completely eliminate overheating. But it sure cuts it down enough that you can at least get more than a minute or two of recording in.

    Well that's good to know

    Another option is to bring an assistance with a big palm tree leaf to fan the camera like they used to fan kings in the middle east back in the old days :allteeth:

    The over heating isn't an issue. It's one guys camera that had the problem, there's been many reviews and overheating tests after in much worse environments and no issue at all. More than likely a faulty unit.

    Banding is still to be proven with so many reviews and images saying it doesn't have banding. But even if it does just turn electronic shutter off in those situations.

    Depends what your using them for. It's not that crazy. A builder would have more value than that in the back of his van. 10k for tools for a photographer isn't a lot.

    This is like saying the D600 didn't suffer from oil on the sensor..... it was just a few faulty cameras.

    Lol no it's not. Unless ts a bulk recall, which is unlikely at this stage.

    This ONE case of it over heating in all the thousands of cameras already out there.

    Um..... no they didn't.

    I own 3 of them and none of them had the issue.

    Well then you either got lucky or you bought the later ones that were fixed. Either way it was a global recal. It's not a personal attack on you lol
