Support for Nikon D850

5531 viewsGeneral Timelapse

What will be needed to support the D850?

I can connect to it but

  1. it is reported as a PTP camera
  2. Unlike the D800 and D810, once connected, the camera controls are blocked
  3. The D850’s built-in “Interval Timer Shooting” has a new option, called “Silent Mode”. If selected, the mirror seems to be locked up and the electronic shutter is used. This is obviously a great choice for timelapse as there is no wear and tear on the shutter and no vibrations.

I assume that a new libgphoto2 will be required?

The latest beta version includes many bug fixes and other improvements on the D850 interface, and also allows you use the Silent Shooting mode. Elijah has created a video on how to set up the VIEW with electronic shutter control.
