An [Auto temperature cutout] item has been added to the setup menu.

  • When [Standard] is selected, the camera will display first a J and then a K icon as its internal temperature rises, switching to a count-down timer if the temperature increases still further.

  • When [High] is selected, the camera will display J, K, and M icons as its internal temperature rises, switching to a count-down timer if the temperature increases still further.

  • When the count-down timer reaches zero, the camera will turn off automatically and further photography will be suspended.

“High”

Although selecting [High] gives you more time before the camera shuts down, the camera may become hot to the touch. We recommend using a tripod or other equipment to reduce the time spent touching the camera.

When the Camera Is Hot
  • In some cases, the count-down timer may be displayed the moment the camera is turned on, even when [High] is selected.

  • Image quality may drop when the camera is hot.

  • Memory cards inserted in a hot camera may also become hot. In this case, do not attempt to remove the memory card immediately, instead, wait for the camera to cool.
