Sony a9 Showed Overheating Warning After 20 Minutes

->> The Sony a9 is supposed to be a game changer in the world of sports photography, but now a new potential issue is threatening to disrupt those ambitions: photographers are reporting that the camera’s overheating indicator is turning on after relatively short periods of use in ordinary conditions.

->> I have completed nine assignments with the new Sony A9. I can tell you I did see the overheating indicator during this weekend. I discovered that shooting anything in the slower of the two SDXC card slots caused the indicator to appear. This weekend the average temperature on the field was between 85F and 95F.

I covered a complete Soccer game with the indicator light on and had no issue with performance. I suspect it is a bug in the firmware that needs to be addressed.

Aside from the whole "overheating indicator". That would seem to me to be a performance issue.

->> The good news is that it's an isolated problem. Only Sony users are experiencing it. (Stolen joke from top comment on the video below.)

->> I spoke with Sony Pro support and they are working on a firmware update to correct the bug. Should be out in a day or two.
