I haven't had my camera very long and haven't used it for long periods of time yet but so far I haven't noticed any 'overheating'. As with any small electric device there is some warmth as the battery expends energy but barely noticeable to me.

Well the Camera tends to be quite hot but so far haven't used it to the stage the camera shuts down or the anti shake button changes to red color!!

I've had my A2 for two weeks now and do notice that it gets quite warm around the handgrip area. I think this is due to the Magicstore 2.2GB microdrive that I'm using rather than the camera itself.

In the D7/A series cameras, the handgrip acts as a heat sink, so getting *warm* is normal.

Wel what "amazingthailand" said is EXACTLY what KM told me when I sent my camera to the service centre

Well KM knew that this is going to be a pretty hot piece of equipment. See their respective user manuals :

Dimage A2 and A1:
Page 7 - "The camera, charger, and battery temperature rises with extended periods of use. Care should be taken to avoid burns."

Page 166 - "The camera, charger, and battery temperature rises with extended periods of use. Care
should be taken to avoid burns."

Dimage 7:
Page 146 - "The camera temperature rises with extended periods of use. Care should be taken to avoid burns when handling the camera, batteries, or memory card.

Page 6: "The camera temperature rises with extended periods of use. Care should be taken to avoid burns."

As long as the D7/Ax doesn't emits any strange odor, heat, or smoke you should be pretty safe.
