Sony A33 and A55

The Sony A33 and A55 are the first batch of camera that features Sony’s brand new translucent mirror technology. Among one of their much touted features is the full HD recording capability at 1080p resolution. However, if you found yourself attracted to them for that reason, you might not like this: sensors on A33 and A55 can overheat in just six minutes when they are used for video recording.

According to Sony, the actual available recording time depends on the Image Stabilization (IS) settings and the surrounding temperature. Turning the IS on would give A33 and A55 users around six to eleven minutes of recording time while turning it off would push it further to around 29 minutes. Once the limit has been reached, the camera will shut down by itself and Sony recommend users have to let the camera cool down first before restarting them.
