Re: 5D Mark III video time limit

There is also another issue: file size. Even if your camera will shoot more than 30 min, the maximum file size Windows recognizes is 4Gb. If you shoot full HD with 5d MKi3 that is about 20 minutes of shooting at high compression, or about 10 at low compression rate... So unless you shoot 640p removing the 30min limitation does not help that much really. The best thing is to record to an external device through HDMI and your problem is solved. Good luck.
