That’s both a huge pro and, if you’re thinking in terms of heat dissipation, a potential con.
It’s worth mentioning right away that Cicala doesn’t tackle the overheating debate directly… at least not yet. But he does point out all of the design elements that produce heat, the ones that are there to take away heat, and why this particular camera might not be very good at actually dissipating heat once it builds up.
You can see the full teardown at this link, but there are a few points worth calling out.
First and foremost is the weather sealing, which is some of the best (if not THE best) that Roger and his team have ever seen, at least on the bottom 2/3 of the camera.
