    Just got my a6000 the other day. this is my first NEX style camera, and i noticed while testing it out that the camera became very warm and even hot at the grip. is this normal?

    They get get warm with continuous use yes.

    Especially if shooting video (to the point of overheating and shutting down if in a hot environment).

    I noticed that it gets hotter quickly when you are in manual focus or DMF with the focus peaking on.
