MENU > System > Fan mode

**Regular: **Creates a balance between fan noise and camera temperature.

Rec low: Increases fan speed during standby to pre-cool the camera. Minimizes fan speed/noise during recording.

Note:* Ideal in an environment warmer than 25 °C (77 °F).*

Low Noise: Minimises fan noise during both standby and recording.

Note:* With data rates above 100 MB/s (due to fps/codec setting), the fan speed automatically increases to prevent CFast 2.0 cards from overheating.*
