Video recording limitation.

I have been using the video recording with full HD 60fps, but the camera app is closed about 1-2 minutes later from the starting due to the high temperature.
It means I cannot take the video 2 minutes more with this option(full HD 60fps).

Actually, I am using LG G3 bought 2 years before, and can take the movie 5 minutes with UHD Quality even this is Sanpdragon 801. (It limits 5minutes as maximum.)

I think this issue is not related to the chipset and hope Sony can improve this issue with SW update.

Re: Video recording limitation.

I'm currently testing and although I did get a heat warning at just over 9:30, it's still recording at 17:40

Re: Video recording limitation.

@nolramb can you see similar experience on 60fps video?

Re: Video recording limitation.

I have no problems with heat even I live in a humid area.

 

I suggest to try recording again , this time restart your device first ( to flush out opened background tasks) or try on safe mode

Thanks for the comment and I will keep to watch this issue.

Actually, I tried to record again and it works about 5 minutes more at this time, but changing the storage to internal memory from SD card.

I don't know if it effects to the recording duration.

Re: Video recording limitation.

it might help a little bit, since the internal memory has faster read/write speeds compared to external memory.

 

Though this might increase the duration, do not expect it to be better, as far as I know , other phone manufacturers are putting limit on this Video mode is because of the heat, sony xperia doesn't have this limit but heat will eventually limit the duration.
