RAW video from Nikon DSLR made possible by Nikon Hacker
Getting RAW video from a Nikon DSLR seemed like an impossible dream recently. However, a member of the Nikon Hacker community has written a patch that allows his D5100 to record RAW footage thanks to the DSLR’s Live View buffer. Moreover, a member of the Magic Lantern team has extracted a DNG file out of the LV buffer.
New Nikon camera updates breaking third-party battery support
The latest Nikon camera updates have fixed some bugs in the D3200, D3100, D5200, D5100, and Coolpix P7700 shooters.
