  1. Camera control nikon d3100 free download. Nikon SDK C# Wrapper This project aims to provide an easy-to-use C# library that wraps the functionality of the native Ni.
  2. Yes, you can get Nikon Hacker firmware that you can get for the D3100. If you wish to get your firmware tweaked. Download the original firmware from the Nikon website for the D3100 and upload here, Nikon-Patch. It will let you choose a few option.
  3. One way is to connect a USB cable (one came with your camera) between the port on the side of your camera and your computer’s USB port and use Nikon Transfer-2 software or simply copy and paste the photo files from your camera to a folder on your.

A step-by-step example of how to use Nikon Patch. D5100 firmware version 1.01 is used below as an example, but it’s the same process for all supported firmware versions:

  • Download the original firmware for your camera model from Nikon Firmware

Nikon DSLRs have a plus and minus to having their firmware hacked. The plus is that Nikon is one of the few things around where you can actually go back in firmware by installing an older version. The minus is that Nikon DSLRs can't execute outside of the camera firmware. That would be the D3100, D3200, D5100, D5200, D7000, D600, D610, D800. The heart of this GPS receiver attachment for a Nikon D3100 camera is a circuit board containing a Ublox NEO-6M. The boards are readily available on eBay at prices as low as $12 to $16 and include a passive antenna. The board sends out multiple NMEA data packets once per second at 9600 baud (its default rate).

  • Nikon Hacker team does not provide patched firmware as a download – the patch will be applied to the original firmware you download from Nikon.
  • Please note that some patch features are only available to some firmware versions. You'll find the supported firmware version from the the changelog, right after your camera model. (for example, 'D7000 v.1.03' means that you have to use the original firmware v1.03)
  • Old version firmware may not be available at your local Nikon website. Try google search the specific version number. Nikon-Europe websites usually keep all versions of firmware.
  • Open the firmware bundle package (the .exe or .dmg) to get the .binfile from inside, for D5100 users it’s called D5100_0101.bin
  • I use 7zip or winzip to open the executable file, and just copy the .bin file to my temp directory.
  • Go to the online patch tool:
  • You have to have have a modern web browser that can run WebAssembly
  • It should look something like this (it has changed over time)
  • if the box below the FAQ and HELP is empty Silverlight is not running, right click in that box and allow the plugin permission to run.
  • Click on button “Select Firmware File”
  • Find the .bin file extracted in the previous step
  • When a known file is opened, the tool will display the Camera Model/Version of the opened file
  • Select features, to read a description, Tick the features you want
  • Click on button “Save Patched firmware File”
  • Name the files something like: “D5100_0101_patched.bin”
  • Copy you patched file “D5100_0101_patched.bin”, to the root directory of your SD card
  • Renamed “D5100_0101_patched.bin” to “D5100_0101.bin” (or D3100_0101.bin, D7000_0103.bin etc)
  • Eject the SD Card
  • Put SD card in the Camera and follow the normal upgrade procedure, listed at Nikon site when you downloaded the firmware

Before patching

Before patching your camera, it is recommended that you check the list of patch limitations for known bugs and behaviour, BEFORE asking from the forum. Enjoy!

  • Do I have to Pay?
  • No the patch is free, contributions are welcome if you find the changes useful.
  • I have paid my money, I want X
  • Ah, I’m sorry you have not purchased anything, We will refund your money. we will try help you getting it working, and if you like what the results, you are welcome to contribute.
  • It does not work
  • Have you followed the steps in the Help Page and checked if your screen looks like the What Should I See diagram? We have reports that the Silverlight application is blocked on some work networks, does it also not work from home?

  • Can I revert to Original Nikon Firmware
  • Yes, just like a normal Nikon update. To date Nikon has done nothing to stop you changing to any old/new firmware for any model DSLR camera (as long as it’s done correctly) so you will have no issues.
  • Will this damage my Camera
  • The patches/changes on the Release Patch Tool, have been tested on other peoples gear, and we have had not issues reported, so you should be OK, the patch might not work, but your camera should be able re-flash the Nikon original firmware. The BETA patch more risky, anything labeled ALPHA you should consider as ‘has never ran on hardware’ and your camera might not survive.
  • Are any patches dangerous?
  • Yes – The non-brand battery patch, allows you to use batteries that are from third parties, these may not be safe from a fire hazard perspective. Also the patch tells the camera the battery is ‘all good’ which 100% safe except when flashing new firmware, as the battery charge level is fiddled with, if the battery run low the camera will turn off mid flash, and your camera will be ruined. So never flash firmware with third party batteries and always use genuine Nikon batteries that are fully charged. For the same reason never use the external power supply while re-flashing, as that power source can also be interrupted, with the same bad results.
  • I have a Mac OS X system
  • Microsoft have a Silverlight plugin for the Mac, it works.
  • I have a Linux system
  • I understood Moonlight works, but I also hear this is a pain to install. Do you have any friends with a Mac or Windows system. I know, weak answer.

Nikon D3100 Firmware Hack Download

  • I still haves issues, Help
  • Sure, come to the Firmware Forums and ask your questions there.
  • What does the contributions get spent on?
  • To date:
  • $400USD to replace Simeon’s D5100 after bricking it testing Alpha changes, see it happens. The original camera is being used to learn how to recover dead gear, but presently is still dead.
  • $165USD to replace 4cc3ss's D3100 after bricking it testing Alpha changes.
  • $590USD IDA license
  • $40 RawDigger license
  • Why is the D5100 get changes and model X is ignored?
  • This is hard work trying to understand how the code works, we have made the most progress on the D5100, so we mostly stay on the model as that's were the knowledge is.
  • Why the feature I want is not available at the latest firmware version?
  • Every time Nikon compiles the new version of source code, the compiler may reorganize the binary structure depending on increased code base or data structure. Thus the same patch for version A may not be in the same location for version B. Reanalyzing takes time. If you want it, you might be the one to start looking at the latest firmware!
  • When will new Model X be supported
  • Until a firmware update is released by Nikon, there is not much we can do.
    • Yes we can dump the memory from some camera models, but it's so much safer to base work off an full release. Also using a dumped release would be Copyright infringing, so really not going to happen outside core team.
  • I want feature X but you guys keep working on Y
  • We are doing the work, so what interests us is what we do
    • See Why is this taking so long
  • We are working on things that are based on what we have discovered/learnt
  • It's not easy to inject new code, so it's not just a matter of wanting.
  • Why is this taking so long
  • We work on this in our spare time
    • Simeon for example also like to take pictures and play Xbox and spend time with his family (as do the rest of the team)
  • The processors are not standard x86/ARM processors
  • There is more than one processor, of different types
  • We are working by trying to understanding the assembly code, based from working from known edge pieces (jigsaw puzzle reference) like USB, File operations, Menu text, or HDMI protocol
    • This is like trying to understand how a master photographer takes pictures by only looking at the foot prints the make in the sand.
  • Why is the D3100 Movie time restriction 17:28 instead of more?
  • The D3100 had a 10 minute limit, and the counter for this limit fits inside a 16-bit number, where-as the other models with their 20 minute limit require a 32-bit number. Due to this ~18 minutes is the largest time that the movie engine can handle, but the assembly code that set this limit does it using a method that allow set the exact max thus 17:28 is the largest value that can be loaded in, without too much changes. So the effort to increase the time counter form 16bits to 32bits is more than the collective interest the current developers, so has not happened.
