    Hmmm, 40 degrees C is 104 F. Plan your shots so you don’t burn yourself and your camera out (well, the camera will just shut down). Still, a 3 min clip is substantial, even under worst-case conditions.

    These figures show clearly: the systems are not well engineered – IS has a significant impact on duration here. What a bad compromise …

      You can always disable in-camera IS but you can’t enable IS in 1985 canon or Nikon lens ;o)
      Also these figures only show that Sony is honest about this topic.

      You really think a EOS 7D holds longer in these temperatures?
      Leave alone the 5D with FF sensor…
      Apple iPad overheats in minutes under 30°c and than locks for 15 minutes to cool down.
