Fan running much faster?
« on: February 17, 2018, 10:59:45 PM »
Is anyone else's fan running much faster/louder with the last two beta updates? I'll admit that I haven't used my camera in a couple months, but I don't remember it being so jet-engine-ey the last time I powered it up.

Were there any changes in the fan controller that could explain it? Or am I just nuts?

No changes to the fan speed control in any of the updates yet. What's the ambient temperature? Did that change significantly since the last time you used it?

Nah, same room. I let it idle on the table next to me yesterday, and it took 70-90 mins to run from 100% to 0%, which I think is about the same battery life I had before. Sound about right? This leads me to think that it's not "working hard" on anything, not generating more heat. So the extra noise is likely just my imagination?

Likely just your imagination, that battery life seems nominal so I doubt it's consuming more power than normal.
