Apr 25, 2013

since it's based on tizen linux, and since the cpu is the powerful exynos quad core, it would be really nice if samsung could release the source code of nx300 firmware, so that many users could make it a better/customized experience and add interesting features.

what do you think?

Guess it would be nice, but I don't think it would ever happen.

Only thing I can think of that I would want it for would be:

1) Increase bit rate for video. Substantially.

2) Substitute the auto share icon for a 16:9 preview button for recording video.

3) Remove the animations/graphics between changing modes.

Just ask them, and if it's based on Linux, they will send you a source code, cause it's covered by GPL.

Yes, they must release the part, which is covered by the GPL. Some other parts, such as SDK are not covered by the GPL, but the base OS and kernel is.

The problem is that all the custom hw parts would have custom drivers, so if they just release the kernel, that would be totally useless...

The kernel contains the drivers.

Oh, and also all the sw to control aperture, shutter, raw to jpg and so on? I'm not into linux, so I don't actually know o

But I think it would be nice to have some linux expert to deal with this and produce, for example, a focus stacking utility for nx300, an embedded raw to dng, usb control, motion detection and much more!
