I bought my new Sony Xperia Z2 in Bulgaria on the 27-th May. I tested the camera in 4K video and normal mode. I noticed that the phone is getting hot after making some photos and video. When I recorded a 4K video the camera switched off after only 2 minutes with massege Overheating! I saw that many others had the same problem. My question is is there a chance to fix the problem. Can I return the phone and change it with another one?

The same problem. Camera is really good, but to make it work you have to be lucky. It is overheating in every mode. Update does not help.
Personally, i am almost sure that it will be impossible to fix it by software updates, it is more of a hardware setup issue.
If you have any chance, send your phone back and change it to something else.
Also, it is very strange the a lot of reviewers mentioned the problem in their reviews but noone didn't tell it is so serious that you actually cannot use your camera, as it is overheated almost every single time. I guess that we need to do kind of a petition, make it somehow public and check, how many users are suffering from it.
Here locally, i am planning to go to such place as governmental costumer protection center. As camera is one of the most advertised functions of the phone and Sony didn't mentioned limitations of its use, they will force the shop to take the phone back or exchange it to any other model with the same value, which is 700€ here. Hopefully, shop will send it back to Sony and they would have to take care about my phone at least than =)

Same problem with overheating while using camera. Last weekend I was on fencing event and I was recording fencing matches in Full HD and after recording few 5 min videos camera started to shutdown. I was using sandisk extreme sdxc card 64 GB as it was posted as a solution but it didin't help obviously. It's a hardware issue and Z2 has no proper cooling system. So it's designer's/engeneer's fault and Sony's fault that they thought, that users won't mind such serious problem on highend phone.
