Support for Nikon Z30


ktkrause

Question

Hey Folks!

Are there any plans to support the Nikon Z30? I mean technically it is the Z50. But unfortunately the last version of Backyard does not recognize the Z30. Would love to use it...

Thanks

Kai

There is nothing to be taken for granted when it comes to SDK and "technically" the same as the Z50. They all have their little intricacies... and Nikon pulled a good one with recent SDK releases, they no longer release 32 bits SDKs, only 64 bits, and given BYN is a 32 bits application that these will not work. I would have to check if the Z30 came with a 32 bit SDK libraries before they made that switch. Sadly, I can't compile BYN in 64 bits without a full UI overall and the UI control library I'm using underneath the cover has a few bugs in 64 bits and won't let me compile in 64 bits full stop :(

Thanks for the super quick reply! ok, that 32 vs 64 bit makes total sense. That really is not easy... So I'll wait patiently and hope it joins the supported models some day! Great software, I guess I'll buy it anyways for my Z6 :-)

I am surprised that a commercial .NET controls library is not already built with both 32-bit and 64-bit (AnyCPU) compatibility.

Hopefully the authors of the U/I controls library will fix the issues with the 64-bit version of their library and you can move BYE and BYN to be 64-bit apps.

In the latest release 2.1.3 I was able to update the ui library and compile BYN in 64 bits... this puts me 1 step closer to support the 64 bits Nikon SDK for newer cameras such as the Z30. Baby steps.
