    First I really like this camera - I am working on a commercial with the Storm Trooper, about three hours into filming I went to reformat a 512 Angel Bird card and it would not format. An error message displayed on the screen card overheated (I don't remember the exact verbiage ). I had to turn the camera off and remove the card for about 5 minutes before I was able to reinsert it and format it.
    I 've been filming with the camera for 5 days now and this is the first issue I have had with it, and it only happened once so far. Any recommendations on how to solve this problem?

    The CF door on the Komodo can be removed. This should help keep those cards cool.

    Is this an issue others have had as well? Shouldn't be normal.

    Have a 2nd card while the first one cools? :) Was it hot from offloading the footage or why were you reformatting it immediately after 3hrs of shooting.

    Haven't had it happen yet and it's a 100 degrees often during the summer here, but curious to see what led to it.

    I just shot all day in 94 degree weather in direct sunlight. Long takes and never had an issue. I had 3 Red/Angelbird 512GB cards.

    I have 2 512GB cards (1 from Red 1 from Angelbird, same thing with different branding) and haven't had one overheat yet. It is mentioned in the Komodo user manual though. Probably want to make sure intake/exhaust panels aren't obstructed but I'm sure this is something that can happen in a certain environment.

    If they also cool the card, that might definitely be what made the card overheat. But that the cooling system also cools the card need to be confirmed.

    106 degrees here in SoCal today, had the camera on and rolling on and off for 4 hours (powered on the whole time, takes were around 3-7 minutes). No overheating yet.

    Do you know if the fans cool the card as well? Might just be a blocking of the fans to overheat the card if so.
