Canon Rebel T8i - Live View Turning Off after around 40 minutes

Grylvak

Hi,

 

I recently purchased a T8i and have been noticing an issue I didn't have with my T3i: The Live View turns off after a little more than 40 minutes. Now I am using the device as a camera for streaming so knowing that is not the intended use, is there a way I can keep the device from turning Live View off after such a short ammount of time?


I have turned Auto-Power off to Disabled in the settings, but I do not have an option for Live View from what I can tell. It is connected via HDMI. I do not have the means to test with USB as of yet.

 

Thanks!

40 minutes is not a "short amoutn of time". I would guess that your sensor is overheating.

Is this what is happening?

Does the camera turn off completely (and stops sending the HDMI out signal), or is it just the display that goes off after 40 minutes?
