    Is this true found it on a review 5 minutes of hd wow that sucks:

    In HD mode (720p/24fps in an .avi file) the D90 can only record a maximum of 5 minutes, otherwise the CMOS sensor will overheat. Standard definition will let you roll for 20 minutes. Right off the bat, it’s no replacement for a regular HD camcorder for most uses.

    It's a DSLR, not a video camera. It's not meant to be a replacement for a regular HD video camera. If you want to shoot lots of video, get a regular video camera.

    To answer the question, yes, the 5 minute limit is true.

    go buy yourself an RED camera if you want more than 5 minutes. It's a dslr not a video camera before the d90 would you have been saying wow it's lame this thing doesn't even video no you wouldn't.

    From reading your threads, you don't like this about Nikon D90, along with their warranty service mentioned in another thread.

    If you don't like your Nikon, SELL IT!

    There are other cameras brands out there, no need to hunt for reason not to like Nikon D90.

    The video issue is well known, and was well publicized before you ever bought your D90.

    I don't take video movies with my DSLR, nor do I use my cellphone to take still photographs, and I sure won't make a phone call on my camera...lol

    Yeah, and 5 minutes worth of multiple frames ain't bad for a DSLR...

    It's listed in the cameras specifications.

    Why complain, if you failed to do due diligence before making your purchase?

    I don't see the problem, I have never shot a clip over 5 min., whether it be for professional or amateur use.

    Exactly, the only reason to shoot more then 5 minute long shots is if your recording an event.
