Sony SLT-A57 video test results so far...
Apr 11, 2012

Settings:

1080p60, 28 mb mode (60 PS):
Tracking focus: ON
Shooting mode: P
Autofocus: On
Image Stabilization: ON
AWB, STD color profile
Lens: Sony 35mm F/1.8

Just got the camera tonight and didn't yet charge the battery all the way.

First run, battery began @ 47% charged:
Recorded for 29:50, no overheat indicator. End battery charge: 30%

2nd run, immediately hit record again
Recorded for 29:50, no overheat indicator. End battery charge: 12%

3rd run, immediately hit record again

Record for 4:00 then overheat indicator came on. Did not shut off though; continued to record until 29:50. Battery went from 1% indicator to the low battery icon @ 19 minutes of shooting.

4th run - what's interesting this time is the temp indicator did not immediately go away like my 5n does once you stop video recording. Beginning the 4th round with the low battery icon on; I am curious if it smartly writes the file to disk before completely running out of power.
Will report back very shortly.
