Here's hoping the A7SIII uses the A9's body and they manage to squeeze out 4K60p with no crop and a higher bitrate. I read this often, but body does not seem to affect the ability for Sony cameras to dissipate heat. The A7RII (pre-patch, small body) and the A99II (DSLR-body) both overheated in similar conditions and usage and they feature very similar chip tech. After a few months the A7RII received a patch to extend the thermal sensors danger zone to allow more heat, making it much more usable in the real world. The A99II never received the equivalent update and continued to overheat far too frequently. Because of this, I sold the A99II and picked up an A7RII and have found it to be much better. TL;DR: Size has no bearing on Sony camera's ability to dissipate heat. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
