Overheating Fujifilm X-E4 Camera

“Sun Shield” Cedar Park, 2021

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~
