Nikon D5 Firmware Update Rumored To Extend 4K Recording Time

The Nikon D5 flagship FX-format digital SLR camera was officially announced at CES 2016. The new Nikon D5 features 4K video recording but is only capable of capturing 3 minutes 4K video at a time. According to a report from Nikon Rumors, Nikon will release a new firmware update for Nikon D5 after the camera has begun shipping in March, in which the update will allow the camera to shoot 4K video for up to 30 minutes at a time.

We know that the Nikon D500 can record 30 minutes 4K video, but the Nikon D5 for only 3 minutes. We don’t know why Nikon D5 camera did not feature the 30 minutes 4K video at the start, but Nikon may change their minds after getting feedback during the camera’s launch.

This info came from a Nikon rep at one of the recent D5 events, not officially confirmed by Nikon, so just take it with a grain of salt, we will find out if the firmware update rumors are true in the coming months.
