Sony NEX-5N Video Overheating Test

Sony NEX-5N Video Overheating Test

JogBird tortured his Sony NEX-5N to see how long before it overheats while shooting a video. The NEX-5N is set to shoot 1080p at 60p with the kit 18-55mm OSS lens. The LCD is out from the body around 5mm and the ambient temperature is 86° F or 30° C.

The NEX-5N did well lasting 22 minutes and 23 seconds before preserving itself and shutting off. The high temperature indicator came on at 12 minutes and 23 seconds. This would be a good time to give the NEX-5N a bit of a cool down before shooting the next footage.

The NP-FW50 battery went from 29% to 7% for the 22:23 footage.
