Photo and video accessory company Ulanzi has just launched a cooling fan for Canon, Sony and Fujifilm cameras. The company stocks over 600 products ranging from tripods to camera cages, lights and camera phone mounts, but this latest addition offers a convenient overheating solution at a very attractive price (if you pre-order soon!). 

Cameras overheating is not an uncommon problem, especially for videographers – even the best mirrorless cameras and cameras for video are susceptible to it. Overheating usually occurs when filming high-res video for an extended period of time, or when shooting in a fast continuous burst mode. Cameras can also overheat when being used in direct sunlight, hot environments or where there is a lack of ventilation – but there are ways to reduce the chances of it happening.
