How much video can I safely shoot on a K-x?

Howdy.

I'm a new owner of a K-x, and was wondering how long I can shoot video before the sensor starts to heat up. I've heard 25 minutes was the norm, but want to be sure. Don't want to shorten the sensor life.

Cheers,
Bobbo :-)

Hi there,

IIRC the camera will shut off if the sensor is in danger of overheating, so I think the answer is "as long as it'll let you"!

enjoy...

I agree. I wouldn't give it a second though, just shoot and enjoy.

For better or worse, something else on the K-x (or any DSLR for that matter) is likely to fail before the sensor does.

Good to know... I'm diggin' the K-x. It's a superb little performer, IMO. I especially like the high ISO performance, which is the main reason I bought it.
