I'd like to open a discussion with any fellow Hassy H5D-50c wi-fi owner/users and their experience with the camera and sensor when powered on for extended periods.
I have an open dialogue with the local distributor here in Australia with regard to the following issue but I'd really appreciate any other real world experiences.
When the camera is tethered to a MacPro and powered by battery, the back is always at least 5°C higher than the ambient temperature. Also, the ambient temperatures in the studio have ranged from 13°C to 22°C. The back temperature is being measured using an infrared thermometer.
When the back is used for live view and shooting then temperature of the back will rise to 34°C when Phocus then freezes and a restart is required. No over-heating warning from either the camera or the software.
I've had to have a small fan trained on the camera at all times for fear of constant Phocus crashes and interrupting work flow.
The camera is only shooting a matter of a few frames every half hour and the live view being on for about ten minutes prior to those frames.
The wifi on the back is switch off and the camera is sourcing its power from the camera battery, not the computer.
I'm in the process of obtaining the crash log from the back and Phocus' log and sending them to Hasselblad.
I have spoken to only one other 50c owner regarding the heat issue and he has not had any issues at all. It is a real issue especially since the job I've been working on with this camera is the first large scale job since purchasing the camera.
Apart from the heat, the camera is great!
Look forward to hearing from others.
