Hi jupzchris,

What is the camera doing that suggests that the camera is overheating? If the camera just stops shooting video after a few minutes by itself, it is not overheating. Simply the buffer is just full. To help mitigate such problems, make sure your firmware is updated which solved most of these problems and if it is updated try using a faster memory card such as the Sandisk Extreme III 30mb/s read/write card. The Extreme III never fail in working :-) I hope that helps.

K-x does overheat after a while of using Live View/Video - it is shown by a red thermometer in the display (you can also kind of feel the back of the camera being warmer than normal), though I'm not sure whether video stops because of this or because the buffer is full (I always thought it writes as it records, and there's not much lag - at least the write-indicating lamp doesn't blink much after stopping video; I use extreme III cards though)
Don't know a solution to this overheating - don't even have the K-x now but obviously, shutting down live view helps...

AFAIK all DSLRs do this with video. I have heard mixed results with just ignoring the thermo warning.

Do a search, Nikon and Canon DSLRs do this too.

It's just life with a CMOS based DSLR video setup.
