ThatCameraGuys confirms A9 overheating with second A9 camera (issue solved when using the battery grip)

Share

ThatCameraGuy tested a second A9 camera and even that camera got the same overheating issue. At around 93-95 degrees, under direct sunlight and constant use the camera did shut down completely after 20 minutes. And when he used the battery grip with extending temperature option “ON” he had no overheating problem. ThatCameraGuy stressed to say that beside that one issue the camera “Is a Knockout”.
Note: He did not use the new 1.01 firmware update which should mitigate or in best case even eliminate the issue. The new firmware update that Sony released and then pulled off today will be re-released soon. Fingers crossed this will put an end to this story :)
