The Nikon D5 has 3 minutes 4k video recording limit
Here is the explanation Nikon gave to the thevideomode.com:

TVM: People want to know more about the maximum recording time on the D5 when shooting 4K. Can you tell us why it’s limited to three minutes and whether it has anything to do with the weather sealing of the camera?

DJ: No, it has nothing to do with the weather sealing of the camera. It’s a matter of processing and the heat which is generated during processing. We work with a generic crop on the sensor for the 4K, however the primary concept and idea of this camera is not about video. The D500 goes the full half an hour (29mins and 59seconds) but the focus was different here. Based upon the feedback of the users of this camera (the Nikon D5), which are mostly journalists and sports photographers, they tend to record short snippets rather than lengthy live coverage.
