D5300 Feature Requests

Wouldn't it be cool if we could make our camera do ________ ?
Patching issues and other general help requests here please.

Re: D5300 Firmware update finally available, any hack?

I think we got a long wait ahead of us. Nikon released updated firmware for 4 or 5 cameras at once. And nobody ever seems to respond to these questions. The activity on this message board is almost non-existent.

Be careful with this firmware. Some people have had problems with the focus on Sigma lenses.

I really hope video limit restriction can somehow be removed, it's 30 minutes and for most users of DSLR's that's probably more than enough, however for those who don't want to spend extra $$$$ on another piece of equipment when their camera can already do a splendid job at it would make a world of difference. I understand that due to FAT32 limitations, removal of this limit may be useless since videos can only be up to 4Gb each, so in order to really make their DSLR into a video camera one would either need to somehow split the videos without interruption or implement NTFS system support on cameras. Is that even possible?

Maybe now we can get some love from the hacking community?

True. My Sigma 17-70 and 10-20 won't focus anymore. They only focus when you put the lens on really slowly and you try to focus the lens while slowly rotating them until you hear the click.

2k video at 24fps for D5300

Postby hornet900 » Tue Apr 26, 2016 1:41 pm

Dear sirs,
I believe that someone can make the D5300 shoot at 2k. If the CPU is not fast enough for 2k, then let the fps only at 24. If this camera can shoot 1080 50fps, then it also can can shoot 2k at 24fps. Can be done??? It would be perfect for film makers!!!!

2k = 2048x1080... so not a huge difference, especially when considering the h264 video compression

I think the biggest change that makes it absolutely prefect for "filmmakers" is continuous 10 bit raw video output... fortunately they are getting closer to this on older nikon d5100.

2k = 2048×1440 and it is better than HD because at the cropping 2,35:1 (on post) the 1080 becomes 817!!! Also 2k has small difference at the tv or monitors, but at cinema big screen, the difference is there... Even 2k, 2,5k or 4k can be done in D5300 if the fps stay at 24. What do you think??? It would be great!!! 1080 is dead for filming. I don't want to believe that GH4 (older than D5300) has so faster CPU that can shoot 4k. Please NikonHacker, think of it.

2k anamorphic = 2048x1440... however it doesn't make too much sense to shoot at this resolution unless you are using anamorphic lenses or intentionally want to shoot in that aspect ratio. otherwise you may have to crop it in post. the 2k DCI is 2048x1080 as the 4k DCI is 4 times larger at 4096x2160. most cinema festivals still accept 2k resolution. it's still an standard. what is more important when talking about cinema big screen is color depth and quality of image... that's why they need at least 12bit of color depth for big screen and work with certain high quality delivery formats like JPEG2000.

I guess in theory expeed 4 cameras like d5300 are able to shoot 4k but probably not anything higher than ridiculous 15 fps (as some of nikon's point and shoot cameras do!)... based on this logic the highest resolution you can reach at 24 fps should be around 3k...

but the most important thing is to avoid line-skipping at any (supposed) higher resolution... what canon dslrs don't (except 5d mkiii) when shooting at 1080p in order to cover the whole sensor area and the result is ugly moire/aliasing... on the nikon side the 24mp s35 sensor of d5300 makes it possible to do a 3x3 pixel binning while covering the whole sensor area at 1080p... but if you exceed 1080p you have to either do a 1:1 crop or line skipping... maybe at 3k resolution you can do a 2x2 pixel binning to cover the whole sensor area...

BUT... i guess making all these attractive ideas happen in reality needs a HUGE amount of time/energy spent on hacking it to enable such a great freedom to adjust all these camera's hidden functions (within hardware limits of each model)... and hopefully nikonhacker will make it happen someday. :dance:
