How long can you record video with nex 7 or 5N?


I am planning to buy Nex 7 but my friend has 5N and told me only last for 29mins or earlier if too hot.

I read from the Nex 7 video review:

"However while previous NEXs were prone to overheating during movie recording, causing them to cut out and stop recording before the 29min 59sec limit, Sony appears to have solved this on the NEX-7. We've recorded full-length movies at room temperature with no sign of overheating."

So can I confirm that I can record the video for 2 hrs long non stop?

Please let me know if you have ever record video at least 70mins.

Any tips to make it happen (2hrs long for example).

or if you have Nex 5n, have you ever record for 2 hrs non stop?

because my friend would like to sell his 5N but if stop every 30mins then I prefer Nex 7 provided it can record 2hrs long without any issue.
If 5N can record for 2 hrs long then I consider to buy it from my friend.

THanks for your sharing and help.

Sony Alpha NEX-7
