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 set up my Fujifilm X-E4 for a long timelapse, but it shut off early. My guess is that it overheated once the sun started hitting it in the late afternoon. Oh well, I still got enough footage to make a short video:
Hurricane Ida is churning in the Gulf of Mexico and up here in Austin we are seeing the outer band of clouds. It makes for a lot of interesting cloud formations in the sky but I just hope there won’t be too much hurricane damage along the coast…
It’s been a while since I made a time-lapse video using my Fujifilm X-E4 but today was a great opportunity. Enjoy!
For today’s portion of the drive home, I got out the GoPro Hero9 Black to record a “TimeWarp” video. I was treated to a little bit of rain and a good variety of clouds which made the drive a little bit more interesting. Please enjoy the video!
