Amira Overheating

Mon Jul 08, 2019 1:41 am

Has anybody experience with this problem ?
Yesterday after few hours of shooting, my Amira repeatedly starts to turning off with no reason.
I wait few minutes and turn it on again. After several minutes it turns off automatically with no reason. And so on. I couldn't finish he recording.
It looks like overheating issue to me.
Battery - Full
Sensor settings - Normal
Fan settings - Low noise
Studio environment 22 degree celsius
No extra heat or else

Is it mabye to much dust inside the camera and electronic cant be cooled enough.
Should i open the camera and blow the dust with compressor air.

If I touch the camera is really hot. But other filmmakers told me that is normal with Arri. ( Is it ? )

Thanks for any ideas about that
