Nikon 1 Driver

Question

Hello, a while back I had sent you my Nikon 1 V3 to figure out why the V3 driver was not working, and you solved the issue, discovering some missing link unknown before. So the V3 works great now with BYN, and thanks again so much for that.

However the Aptina sensor in the V3 leaves a lot to be desired, and I was wondering if it's possible for you to write a driver for the Nikon 1 J5, which is a newer body with a much better Sony sensor?

Having learned what you did from the V3 driver, would it be possible for you to interpolate a driver for the J5, or would you also need to have the camera physically in order to write a driver for it?

Let me know, and thanks again.

The BYN authors rely on Nikon to provide drivers for their camera models. The reason is because the cameras provide proprietary technology that only Nikon employees know about. BYN cannot support cameras that Nikon has not first added to their software development library that they make available to 3rd party developers.

Guylain already wrote a driver for the V3 after I sent him my V3 camera for analysis. My question is whether he's able to interpret a driver from the existing data, or if he would need the actual J5 body in order write a driver.

I don't write drivers, I write code that communicate with Nikon's SDK (Software Development Kit). The camera drivers are 100% a Nikon thing.

This said, Nikon does not have the SDK for the Nikon 1 J serie as of today, and until they do, there is nothing I can do sadly :(
