TRYING VARIOUS TECHNIQUES TO REDUCE TEMPERATURE
I separated out this chart to enlarge it. All the effects on surface temperature are quite small and can only be seen when zoomed in.
Heat sink refers to the arrangement pictured here. The back label is removed, replaced by the thickest 3M thermal PSA AVAILABLE and topped with two heat sinks that cover the entire area under the LCD.

This graph shows that even the most drastic approach results in only small and temporary temperature reductions. On the Sony support forums it is suggested to turn "Steady Shot" off. In my testing on my camera this too made little or no difference.
Indeed, the only way that I was able to stabilize the camera's temperature was by placing it on a frozen gel pack.
