I currently have a D90 and I'm shooting more and more video so I was considering going to the D7000.

My question is, does the D7000 overheat after 5 consecutive 5min shooting and automatically shut down or is this something of the past?

Thanks for any help.

Nikon D7000 can shoot 20 minutes video continuously. It has also full time autofocus. Here at the end of video you can see the quality and how well fulltime autofocus works.

I have shot 2-3 hours of video in a row without any overheating problems.

    \$\begingroup\$ No, it will not. I made 2-3 hours of video in a row and it was ok \$\endgroup\$ Oct 3, 2011 at 13:05

I have owned a D7000 for a year and I have shot video for hours with just small breaks in between. I have never had an overheating problem.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Same here. It is obviously a little warm, but nothing like overheating. Even in outdoor use in fairly warm weather. \$\endgroup\$
