Summer in Oklahoma can bring some brutal heat. A lot of it. Our outdoor grilling series called “Open Flame” features local chefs showcasing their talents on the fancy grills at American Propane.
Episode three will debut on NewsOK on Wednesday, ahead of the holiday weekend. We taped Thursday night. As usual, the Canon 7D was our primary camera. We used two, a 14mm wide angle lens on one, a 24-105mm on the other. I haven’t installed the firmware update yet, so the 7D was overheating about every five minutes. It simply can’t handle the heat outside.
I’ve read online and on Twitter that the firmware update fixes the overheating problem. I’m hoping to find out this week.
Here’s Episode 2 of Open Flame, taped last month:
