Smartphones that communicate via Wifi with Panasonic cameras such as the GX80, GH4, GH5 and G7 can be used to trick the cameras into enabling features otherwise locked or hidden, such as extra picture profiles and higher bitrates.
You can now run a script file from the SD card inside a Samsung NX1 and NX500 to enable extra features.
The Samsung NX300 and NX1 run off the back of an open source Linux operating system.
A Homebrew project has taken to modifying the NX300, removing the video clip length recording limit and opening the doors to potentially a modified NX1 or NX500.
(Thanks to A1ex for the tip off). Developer “leegong” of Nikon Hacker has made enormous progress in getting raw video from the live view function of the Nikon D5100. Early builds of the patch output raw frames to the card and A1ex of Magic Lantern has written a prototype / test DNG converter.
The D800 has re-emerged!
We have the Mosaic Engineering VAF-D800 filter, CFast $299 Atomos Ninja Star ProRes recorder coming soon and now even a hack project based around the camera.
So I’ve picked up a D800 and plan to see what I get out of it.
