Heat dissipation system for enhanced reliability

To ensure reliability in challenging environments, the PDT-FP1 incorporates a newly developed cooling fan and a duct structure designed for heat dissipation and quiet operation. It effectively prevents thermal shutdown, even in temperatures as high as 40°C (104°F)5 , for continuous transmission during shooting.
