On the front LCD in stills mode, can anyone tell me what the timer is next to the battery icon? I have never had this timer get down to zero, but I do notice that it counts down while in stills mode. Wondering if this means that the camera can overheat outside of shooting video. Thanks!

It is telling you how much video shooting you have left. The camera will NEVER not let you shoot stills even if the timer goes down to zero.
