Sony NEX hack is go – 46Mbit 1080p tested
Theres link to that topic: http://www.eoshd.com/content/8722/sony-nex-5n-hack-is-go-46mbit-1080p-tested
The video after the break shows the hack in action, and proof that it can be done.
thats pretty interesting topic for NEX 5 users
I cant wait to see some samples with that hack.
5N will continue
There is no hack and there certainly is no 46mbps video mode for NEX cameras.
Someone has looked around through the source files of the camera's firmware. This may potentially lead to a hack, or it may not. The person who's responsible doesn't even own a NEX-5N or NEX-7.
Well, I for one would be thrilled if the video compression of the NEX-7 could be dialed back. Shooting 1080p60 and conforming to 24p gives a great-looking slo-mo, but as has been mentioned, the compression really screws things up.
I would pay for such a "hack."
In lieu of this (or better yet, as long as Someone is hacking), having a clean HDMI out would suffice.
I would pay for such a "hack."
Did you win in lottery? I wouldn't pay for such a hack. Even not $ 0.00
There are quite few people happy with Panasonic G series hacks it seems. Magic Lantern for Canon too is gaining popularity.
For some weird reason manufacturers limit the stuff you can do with the camera. So hardware is much more capable but it is not unleashed.
Well thats you, and clearly as you would not want to "ruin" your camera with a hack you would not pay for one.
But Im sure there are many who would want the perks of the hack (and would pay a price for it), regardless payment could not legally be received for the hack apparently anyway.
I think its pretty cool all in all.
original poster skalsa1: Sony NEX hack is go – 46Mbit 1080p tested: look at
eoshd.com: A guy named Someone 1.00 is able to hack the NEX series of Sony mirrorless cameras for higher bitrates in video mode and more. The video after the break shows the hack in action, and proof that it can be done...Sources say that this hack can allow
Uh, does this hack exist, or is it just the kind of hack that could conceivably allow something-or-other if it did exist and worked properly?
eoshd.com: (Please note this is just my speculation and nothing is confirmed yet)...To hack the newer Sony cameras like the NEX 5N, he needs the body to dump the firmware.
Oh, I see, maybe the hack's up and running on some other Nex besides a 5n, the poor guy just needs a 5n to spread the good news further. Everyone's just forgotten to post an example of "the hack" and its results in action.
The EOShd website then goes on to show a ridiculously simplistic sequence of somebody with a binary editor simply paging through some binary code . Yeah, that's "tested evidence". That I guess is supposed to be from some example of the "Nex series of Sony mirrorless cameras".
Hurray, someone is able to view a few binary characters that might even be Nex firmware. Well, that's almost exactly the same as getting all Nex's to have useful new video modes appear on their menus.
Maybe I'm missing something? Where is the 46Mbit (less-compressed) 1080p video that some modified Nex can now generate? Posted alongside the more-compressed video from the same camera? Along with a plausible update procedure? With screen shots of the new Nex menu item that gets you to the new option?
I.e. where's the tested part?
can this be "transformed" to work on some higher fps with "regular" compression - getting some 1080/120p or more? or if anyone knows some trick to get more than 60fps, not necessarily 1080, even 720, but 120fps+.
