Can anyone help me with this matter! I have just bought a new CANON IXUS 500 Digital camera. The thing is when I have the camera on for more than 20 minutes it seems to get very warm on the front metal body. I dont know if this is the norm!!! I would like to find out before I take it back I used to have a FUJI A204 Digital camera and this never overheated. I dont know if its because the CANON has a Lithium-ion battery as the FUJI only had the 2 AA batteries!
