I just read a thread here about the NEX 7's video recording shutting off as soon as 5 or 6 minutes into recording because of overheating problems. This seems odd to me. Today, I was having issues with my NEX 7 stopping during recording and I didn't know what was going on, so I came here to look for answers. My NEX will last from about 12 minutes to as long as 17 minutes before it will halt. Although sometimes it will halt after only a couple of minutes, even if the camera has been sitting for a while. I read one post where a guy who RTFM'd stated that Sony recommends a Memory Stick to prevent overheating. Yeah, of course. Then why does my camera have an SD card slot, eh? Anyway, I just pulled the SD card and had a look. It's a SanDisk Ultra PLUS 32GB with a 48 MB/s transfer rate. So, is my camera working as "well" as it is because I have a fast SD card? And I guess if I'd like to further improve upon things, I should buy a Memory Stick, I suppose, eh? On another, sort of unrelated topic, I've been trying to find out if it's possible to control my NEX 7 from my computer via the camera's USB connection. I haven't found anything in the NEX 7 Handbook about that. It doesn't appear that the latest version of Play Memories Home has the capability either -- or maybe I've just missed it?
