Firmware is finished, If i'm happy with how the camera functioning and there's
no issues, and if i can catch hold of simeon and see if it's possible to include it
to the online patcher then everyone a winner.
The firmware which i worked with includes battery auc & video restriction
and Lv/manual control.

I created another video as the previous one was rushed and over bright.

I've packed the firmware with winrar, so just unpack with chosen software and place D5100_0101.bin on SDcard and update firmware as usual.
The firmware is also patched with battery AUC & video restriction, Once installed have fun! :)
Please post your feedback.

I guess the reason is pretty obvious: D5100 and D7000 firmwares are built from same source code. So most things from D7000 are inside D5100, perhaps all (I expect also DOF-preview function be there, but no button to activate). Because we see for example everywhere in a cycle work with SDHC Channel 0 and Channel 1 in D5100, but only channel 0 is enabled. Same sensor, same TX chip, and it is much easier to keep firmware almost same because you save a lot of time for development and testing.

Good job!

I knew that most of the hardware inside D5100 was the same as the D7000, i didn't even think that they would use same source code, but it makes sense to.
Thanks for explanation coderat.

Hi! First of all, thanks a lot for the great mod that you've done. I'd like to know if is possible to load your firmware in the nikon online patcher to add the "NEF Compression Off" and "Jpeg Compression - Quality (vs. Space)"

Thanks, it will be added to the online patcher shortly, then you'll be able to choose your own patches.

But how can one shoot in shutter speed slower than video FPS would allow?
Are we making frames for over-lapping time windows?
Or does this reduce the frame-rate of the video?

I am afraid at the moment only photo timer mode can be used.

You can't set shutter slower as 1/30s in D5100/D7000 in video mode.
