Quick question: Not really "rumor" related but I know there is a very lively community here on NR so I thought why the hell not?
I've been asked to record a video this weekend and the only camera that is available to me on that day is aD800. Although thats a huge compromise over professional camcorders a SLR will suffice for this tiny project.
I was wondering - is the D800 known for having problems capturing multiple 20 min. segments in a row? I know video recording stops every 20 min. (or 30? don't remember) but if I immediately start a new clip, would the D800 have any issues with that? overheating? EXPLODING? I'd probably have to capture 2 continuous hours of footage.
I would gladly perform a little stress test on a D800 but I don't have one here, I'd only get one right before my little project starts on Sunday). Also I'm consindering renting a second D800 tomorrow for this so I really need some info if this is possible at all or if the Nikons would start - I don't know - melting after 70 minutes or so...
I DO know the D800 very well as a photographic tool but I don't know THAT much about it's video capabilities.
