My Fujifilm X-E4 camera shut off during shooting a time-lapse sequence the other day, so I was unable to capture the sunset I was hoping for. I believe what happened was the camera overheated and shut itself down. This has been known to happen while recording long, high-resolution videos, but I hadn’t experienced this with just shooting stills.
In order to stop this overheating from happening again, I made this cardboard shield to block the sun. I also have changed the image size that the camera is capturing frames to “medium” which is large enough to produce a 4K video sequence.
It appears the shield worked as intended as the camera was able to keep shooting even with the afternoon sun hitting the shield. Yay!
I hope you had a nice day. またね～

Nice and easy workaround.
Great video man.My xe4 gets warms while clicking picture. Is it normal?
I think it is always normal to get a little warm during operation.
