NikoN Serial Protocol Coolpix 800 - anyone worked this out?

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by Michael Gardner, Oct 12, 2004.

  1. I'm using Photopc and Eugene Crosser's document on Serial Protocols to
    control my Coolpix 800.

    I can control many camera functions - but cannot control the AEL/WBL or
    Zoom features. I can change them in the camera and see the changes in
    the registers - but changing the register values is not reflected in the

    Has anyone else tried using this protocol on an 800?

    Also, any idea if this stuff can be adapted to modern day Nikon's?

  2. Yes, I saw the same thing with my coolpix 880 (uses USB, I don't own it
    anymore), with both photopc and gphoto2.

    Newer Nikon's use the PTP protocol, I don't have experience with them
    (i.e. no details as to what works without googling). The newer Olympus
    cameras still uses sierra, though I could not get photopc working with my
    Olympus (don't know if it is a problem with photopc or my setup, and
    haven't tried to figure it out), gphoto2 works fine with my Olympus -
    including the zoom.
