Nikon Coolpix
  • I am working on the subj. The problem is that part of firmware is compressed with variable length coding and I have no clue how to unpack. This is not ZIP or any obvious formats. Encoded data is a stream of blocks. Here is one of them:

  • I think you started too far.

    Rewind please. What exactly Coolpix camera? Did you checked information of firmware unpacking on Nikon DSLRs?

  • Vitaliy, I am not newbie. Just look inside S3600 firmware.

  • I have no idea who you are :-)

    S3600 camera is one of the cheapest things.

    Any reason you are spending time on all this?

  • A bet you do :-) This cam is MIPS and cheapest one. And it has COACH processor.

  • This cam is MIPS and cheapest one. And it has COACH processor.

    And?

    I asked why to spend time on all this. What is the goal? Why this camera?

  • No money for nothing, and chicks for free :) We do this, because we can ( (C) FIDO)

  • @crt0

    And seriously?

    If just for fun, I think it is best to get this camera and go to nearest monastery for advice about life.
