Can anyone help me and tell me what's going on with my camera. My HVX keeps powering off automatically. Itll be on for about 10 minutes without a problem and it'll just abruptly power off. The battery is fully charge and It even does it when i connect the power supply. The camera has never been dropped or handled violently. I actually barely use it.

I also have the RedRockM2, and Micro X connected to it.

Anyone know whats going on?

If it's not while you're recording it could be a power save mode? if it's happening when it's recording... then I'm flummoxed.

720, but only because I feel it's less uprezzing on the camera. That's just my opinion, of course.
