1080p at 25fps video for D7000
D5100 has this feature, D7000 doesn't. It is important for PAL countries.

Dont know if this works but when you focus on objects it's marked red in camera, sometimes it's hard to see! Is it possible to change colour to ex. white or green?

For D3100, AF FINE TUNE and bracketing would be excellent breakthrough. AF fine tune for one general value, no need for menu option (if possible why not), firmware modification and uploading into camera would be great. D5100 would benefit with this option too. Video exposure manual change is a great thing, I mean setting it to 48/s like film and other stuff, but I am more like photo oriented so anything is welcome.

D3s support please :-)

Also if anyone needs a D3s firmware and can teach me how to get it off my camera Id be happy to oblige

Seeing as the D3s uses the same Fujitsu FR chip as the rest of these cameras and already HAS interval (timelapse) and manual video controls built in, Im thinking you could just adapt the code to these other cameras?

What about custom Shutter speed like 1/573 sec. and custom ISO speed like ISO 942?
Is it possible to expand Shutter to 1/8000 sec. for the D5100?
