RECORD­ING FOR MORE THAN FIVE MIN­UTES WITH A SONY XPE­RIA Z2

HWM (Singapore) - - LEARN -

If you own a Sony Xpe­ria Z2 smart­phone how­ever, there’s ac­tu­ally a way to get longer 4K videos. While 4K video on Sam­sung and LG’s smart­phones is strictly lim­ited to five min­utes, which is de­ter­mined by the app it­self, Sony’s cam­era app doesn’t have a fixed time limit, and only shuts down when the CPU tem­per­a­ture reaches a cer­tain point.

With the help of some ex­ter­nal cool­ing this means that you can ac­tu­ally go over the five minute mark. If you’re record­ing in­doors, try set­ting the air con to the low­est pos­si­ble set­ting, while out­doors a por­ta­ble fan might give you a few ex­tra min­utes of record­ing. Of course, the eas­i­est so­lu­tion is to take ad­van­tage of the Xpe­ria Z2’s IP58 wa­ter­proof rat­ing and sub­merge the phone in a bag of ice/cold wa­ter - all ex­cept for the cam­era lens of course.
