I wonder, why do they limit the videos to 4GB anyway. these cameras have full support for exFAT, they should be able to multi terabyte files if needed.

If they are going to enforce a dumb 30 minute limit then so be it, but why limit the videos to 4GB?

I'm totally new to photography, but I mainly want to take really nice pics of my corals, esp now after a really long time everything is doing amazing. (That's another topic ).
I read only good things about the above camera. And I'm happy, b/c it's not a ton of money compared to other higher end models. I would get a basic lens to start, and then a nice macro once i can justify it.
I see examples of coral pics on this site with the 'basic' 18-55 mm lens, and they look great just like that. But what about real life pics, just out and about.. on vacation etc? From experience, this is still a great camera? I'm going to Alaska next year on a cruise, and will likely get a telephoto lens for that, if the answer is yes to it being a great all around camera.
I'm happy (if it's a yes) b/c I assumed I'd need to pay $2000 for a decent DSLR -- again, I'm a newbie, but would like intermediate level maybe
My dad and grandpa were photographers, so it might be in my blood also

Like others, this is a request for a hack to the D5500 firmware to support getting rid of the video time limit.
I seems like nobody is working on things in here these days, but I figure it never hurts to ask. Again, like others, I would be willing to contribute time helping to make this happen, or better yet money. How about setting up a fund for each camera? When that fund reaches $XX, you would work on a firmware patch for it? If it doesn't reach the magic number in say, 12 mo. then you just send the money back (less 5% for the time to handle the process).
Seem fair?
