"Videos with the D5100"
Thu 18-Oct-12 05:34 PM by avigar


What's the recommended number of minutes that one can record at a time? I'm worried about processor heat and its effects on the camera. I'd want to prevent the camera from needing a cooldown before I can start shooting pictures again with it.

For the most part, hybrid still/video cameras are limited to 30 minutes of continuous shooting, so that's the maximum clip length before recording stops and you have to restart. This is a deliberate limitation to avoid being considered from a taxation perspective as a pure video product. That being said, it's probably more important to think about how long the clip can be before your post-processing chore becomes unmanageable. I wouldn't want to be editing full thirty minute continuous clips. I would prefer to edit 3-5 minute long clips, knowing that for the most part, I'm not going to pull more than a minute of video from it and likely archiving or dumping the remainder.

My Plan:

Get out of the car.
Get closer to the subject.
Pick the right mid-tone this time.

I never had any trouble with my D5100 overheating.
Typical Video use was 3 or slightly more 20 minute segments during Church services.
I was shooting HD1080 at 30fps.

The D5100 is limited to 20 minutes, assuming your card can hold it...
