So i downlaoded the app to test this with my d5000, everything works except for the live view. When i press it, it says "Liveview prohibition: The recording destination is the SD card". Am i to understand that this won't write to the internal memory and i must have an SD card for it to work or did i miss a setting somewhere?
EDIT: nevermind, i missed the button to change the destination. So the live view records as a video rather than a stream.
Yes, when D5000 is connected to your phone or PC to use the liveview option you must switch recording media to sdram. In liveview mode (D5000, must check others) you can only take a picture/pictures, the movie recording mode is not working when the camera is connected to phone/PC.
Yes i understand that it can't record the video, what i was saying is that the way you implemented "live View" was by recording the output to video. I noticed a countdown timer that i assume is filling up my memory card. There is no way to do it as a stream that doesn't write to the phone?
Nop, it's not filling up the memory. The liveview image is pulled from the camera and after it was displayed it is discarded.
The timer you see is actually the camera timer:
Countdown every one second starting from 3600 (one hour) ; countdown starting from thirty seconds with a rise in temperature.
It's a camera protection so that it not overheat (actualy you have the same protection when the camera is not connected to PC/phone and you enter the liveview)
