Howdy...

 

I'm looking to make some 2hr recordings with a set of SP360s...  I've done some tests with external power and have found the cameras mostly stop by themselves sometime between the 1 and 2 hour mark... 

 

I'm assuming this is from overheating (this is indoors in an air-conditioned room). 

 

Has anyone found a solution to this? Maybe an external fan to blow on the units? Or some other sort of cooling? Icepack between them? Seriously, I'm open to it...

 

Let me know your thoughts.

 

Best,

 

Ben

I hope you find a solution.  It does very nicely with short videos (and time lapse seems to be OK), but long videos just aren't happening.  I have a project that I was planning on doing this with in a couple of weeks. Hopefully there's a solution!

I did find a solution... I removed both battery doors and batteries, and pointed a small fan at the cameras while recording...

 

I was able to record for over 4 hours straight with this approach...

 

Best,

Bit extreme but well done
