Does this issue even exist? I rarely shoot any video on my DSLRs, but I would like to start experimenting with it more. Does shooting a lot of hours in video mode have a wear & tear effect on the camera shutter or any other part of the camera body at all? I don't even think the shutter is engaged when video mode is on, but other parts of the body could be effected, no?

It's just a question I thought about with so many people concerned about shutter counts on camera bodies.

Shutter opens when video starts, shutter closes when video ends--one shutter release. There is an "electronic shutter" operating during video, but there's obviously no mechanical wear going on there.

The electrical components warm up--the warmth you feel is actually the processor chip, not the sensor. It's apparently possible to run video long enough for that heat to affect the sensor (creating an unacceptible amount of heat-induced noise)--the camera will first flash a viewfinder icon warning and then eventually shut itself down.

No wear to speak of, at least nothing you'll encounter during ownership.

Ask yourself, can you hear the shutter when you record video ;) - answer: no. :)
