From our experiences and testing, the Sony aXXXX cameras are notorious for overheating during movie recording, especially in higher quality settings like 4K or S&Q. Sony specifically states in the a6600 Online Help Guide that expected maximum recording times in all formats and in all temperatures is only 30 minutes. Therefore, if you need assurance that the camera will not overheat during longer recording times, we highly recommend choosing another camera.
