Green rectangle in 5x live view hacked Nikon D5100

Question

Hi guys,

I just patched my Nikon D5100 with hacked firmware. From the patches available I chose just the "Liveview Manual Control ISO/Shutter", so I cound control the exposure in planetary mode, keeping the other patch options disabled.

 

Now, when I use 5x feature in Live view (both planetary and framing), I get green rectangle on the image (see attached file). The rectangle is visible on the recording as well.

 

When I revert to original firmware, the rectangle is not there.

 

 Any ideas how the rectangle can be disabled?

 

Thank you,

 

Frank

Hi guys,

fixed - you also need to use patch called "Clean HDMI & LCD Liveview" - you have to sacrifice all the icons in your lifeview on the LCD screen when using DSLR for normal photo shooting, but as the reward you get rectangle-free 5x liveview when using DSLR with Backyard Nikon.

I don't know.  Did you ask the maker of the firmware?

Hi guys,

without the hacked firmware, the exposure settings in planetary view had no effect at all - no matter what shutter speed and ISO I've used, the resulting AVI would still look the same. Pausing live view, changing the settings and then resuming the liveview made no difference.

 

I've researched the internet and found out, that Nikon D5100 has no exposure simulation, no matter what you do and that the hacked firmware enables exposure simulation. And it really did - it works, now when I change shutter speed and ISO, i get different AVI files. Even without stopping/resuming the live view.

 

The only trouble is that GREEN or RED RECTANGLE, that get's into 5x view mode..... it's the rectangle you normally see on the screen of your DSLR when you zoom in the live view. However, without hack, it would not show in Backyard Nikon 5x view. Now it does.

 

I've forgotten to upload the attachement when posting, so I updated the post - please see the picture above.

 

Thank you,

Frank

That rectangle is added by the hack firmware as part of the image itself.  It is in the image and therefore can not be removed... unless whoever made the hack firmeare can provide you with a clean live view image with out it.

 

BYN can only displays what the camera provides and with the hack firmware the rectangle is part of the actual image data.

It seems that since all of these "Patches" are running on your NIKON DSLR inside the NIKON "Operating System", that in turn is producing Modified LiveView results, which is then being directed through the NIKON SDK to BYN.  This probably works, even though the "Patch" Developer was probably unaware of BYN or the impact on the Image Stream output via the SDK, because the NIKON SDK Implementation requires all of the Settings to be set by the User on the Camera.

 

That all this Works is Good News - since other users have reported "Bad Results" with previous "Patches" / "Hacks".
