      Hi

      I am been working with mirrorless and DSLRs for years now.

      I need to buy a camera that would allow continuous recording for at least 8 hours, even on external recorder in case the SD cards are not enough, and with batteries that last very long or the option to be powered with a wall adapter.

      Any suggestions?

      Thanks

      Sony NX5U camera with a Sony HXR-FMU128 Flash Memory Unit will give you ten hours plus another 4-5 on the SD cards.

      I also use the Sony HXR-NX5 and at my last event, it lasted around 8 hours on start and stop recording running on 1080 50p + a phantom powered shotgun mic with the big F970 battery. With two of this battery, I reckon it should last at least 8 hours on continuous recording.

      This is a good choice indeed. I can recommend this one as well.
