Sony A55/A33 DSLR Video Recording Limited By Overheating Sensor?

DSLR cameras are increasingly used to double up as video cameras, and the results aren’t too bad either. That being said, these cameras often aren’t able to continuously record a scene for too long, and Sony’s A55 and A33 DSLR cameras are only able to record for 9- and 11-minutes straight at 20 degrees Celsius with Image Stabilization (IS) turned on, due to heat issues. The good news is that if Image Stabilization is turned off, you can go on to achieve 29 minutes of recording, though that’s probably not enough to capture a whole birthday party in one shot. Of course, if you’re good at recording, you’d probably be recording the videos in short clips anyways.
