Anyone find the R817 really hot when charging and after moderate use? I just got mine and thought it might be defective. It is so hot my 4 year old son whimpered after touching it while it was on the cradle charging for just 10 minutes. Think I should return it or is this just the camera norm.

Warm is OK - hot is not. Charging a lithium ion battery should generate only a little heat and the camera, all digicams, get warm when used but not hot. I'd have it looked at or if recently purchased, ask for a replacement.
