Re: Add features via firmware?

The source code for the camera is proprietary, not open source. Who is willing to disassemble and or decompile the firmware, figure it out an make changes? That is a huge undertaking as in a fulltime job.  When Nikon makes an update this would have to be figured out and reconciled into one's private fork. One would have to do this for every model. Then there's the possibility of legal issues.

So who's willing to take this on? Not me.
