Has anyone had issues with their A7C shutting down during shoots? I record to Twitch and about 45 minutes in, the camera turns off. If I flip the switch off and back on again, it will stay on for another 10 minutes or so, then shut off again. Does it automatically shutoff if it gets too hot? The battery is about 50%, so battery shouldn't be an issue. It's connected to my MacBook Pro via USB-C, that also shouldn't cause problems. If you have any thoughts, curious to hear them.

Thanks

Do you get an overheating icon flashing? If not already set, then you could try changing the Auto Power Off Temp to High.
MENU → (Setup) → [Auto Power OFF Temp.] → High.
