    I feel like this would be a bad idea, as the time limit is set by Nikon based on the sensor’s tolerance. The sensor can be damages if overused.

      I was under the impression that the time limit is a factor of the license compression codec and the overall finished file size. I can’t remember where I read that though.

        I could be wrong, but all I am saying is that any firmware update I put on my D7000 is going to be created by Nikon, and Nikon only.
