How to stop overheating after 10 or 15 minutes?
Asked by: Gabriel
There are several steps you can take to somewhat fix the issue. First you can invest in a fast memory card, like the Sanidsk Extreme Pro card or Prograde memory cards. Extra batteries help and if you can use an external power source that will also help. And finally upgrade the cameras' firmware.

What are the picture profile options on this camera? Can you get anything close to the flat "Cine 4" look?
Asked by: Samuel
Hi Samuel, using the portrait style under the creative style menu you can change the sharpness, saturation, and contrast. By lowering the sharpness to -3 and contrast to -2, the camera will produce a nice flat image that responds well to color grading in post production.
