"D5200 Video duration"


Montreal, CA
          

Hello, a friend is interested in buying a D5200 body as a reasonably priced video capable Nikon. Can anyone tell me whether there is a limit on the duration of a HD full res. video. Other than the capacity of the card itself, I mean. Thanks for your help.

I think it's 20 mins or 4GB on a D5100, whichever comes first.

This website says the D5200 is 30 mins, but doesn't say anything about a file size limit:
http://www.lightandmatter.org/2013/equipment-reviews/nikon-d5200-vs-d7100-which-should-you-buy/

Might be a 6GB limit? That's just a guess based on the D5100. I've read rumors that they have the limits to prevent components in the camera from overheating, so it may only be 4GB.

Part of the time limit is for tax purposes. Europe rules that cameras that can do more than 29(?) minutes are "video cameras" and are taxed at a much higher rate than "still cameras".

Hi Christian,

At maximum Bit rate 24Mbps = 20min.
At 12Mbps = 29min. 59sec.

See page 103 of the D5200 Users Manual .

Best Regards,
Marty

Many thanks for your replies. It would be interesting to know whether once the allowed duration expires one can immediately start a new 20 or 29 minute sequence without a shutdown possibly caused by overheating.

You can push the record button immediately after each 20-29 minutes Video segment.
It should do well over one hour without overheating unless outside in the Sun on a hot day.
I generally try to take all my photos with the sun at the back and my body shading the camera anyway.
And on a hot day I will be under some kind of shade if only an umbella.
