The problem is that you can choose what you want in Ekos, he always changes the camera to JPEG ...

indeed it is always the same when you set the camera to RAW and connect it to Ekos to take a photo ekos changed the camera to Jpeg Fine

Hi. I'm connecting a Nikon D7500 via the StellarMate (running SM on the pi4) and remote in via the mac or android tablet. I have been able to get everything up and running but having the same issue. It does FITS without problems, but Ekos/Indi changes RAW to jpeg, both in the saved files and also the camera setting. Has there been a solution found yet?

Thanks for any help!

Hello Omar & Welcome to INDI forums!

I actually just purchased a Nikon D3500 yesterday so I can troubleshoot the issues with Nikon support on INDI/StellarMate, so hopefully within a couple of weeks I'll try to work out any major issues with Nikon support.

Hi Jasem,

Thanks! And that's great news! I love the device and it's fantastic all the work you (and others) have done with INDI and SM. Looking forward to more...

Best,
Omar

Jasem and Jantje:

I have a Nikon D750 and I can assure you absolutely everything works fine. I've put in attachment some screen copies with my settings, if this helps.

On one screen, you can see a red dot facing the definition, this is normal. The screen copy was taken after I used the live stream, so the definition is that of the rear screen.
When you take still images, the definition returns to 6016x4016 and the red dot goes green again.

Jantje, for your third problem (the connection) look for a file /usr/lib/udev/rules.d/99-nikon.rules. it should contain ...

<
ACTION=="add", ATTR{idVendor}=="04b0", RUN+="/bin/sh -c '/bin/echo 256 >/sys/module/usbcore/parameters/usbfs_memory_mb'"
SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="04b0", MODE="0666"
>

... so every one can read and write the device.

The same directory should also contain a 85-disable-dslr-automount.rules with ...

<
# Disable automount by setting envrionment variable for UDISK2.

# Pentax
SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="25fb", ENV{UDISKS_AUTO}="0"
SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0a17", ENV{UDISKS_AUTO}="0"

# Canon
SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="04a9", ENV{UDISKS_AUTO}="0"

# Nikon
SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="04b0", ENV{UDISKS_AUTO}="0"

# Sony
SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="054c", ENV{UDISKS_AUTO}="0"
>

... so the device won't be set "busy" when the driver tries to access it.


Jasem, I also have a D3100; it works fine except for the live video, which is not supposed to. The D3100 in a low end Nikon, so it isn't as feature-rich as the high end cameras like the D500 or the D750. Being from the same bloodline, I wouldn't be surprised should your D3500 have the same problem. But I repeat, everything else works fine.

In the live video, it you click the debayer, everything goes boom.

Well, I hope all this helps :)

I do not use Nikon myself, but I got reports on Nikon D7500 - apparently file format selection is not working properly and whatever you do, you end up with jpeg-fine format. It looks like this behavior id model dependent and is related to libgphoto2 rather than indi driver

@Marc2b - thank you for your support - I am currently shooting with the ZWO ASI294MC PRO and it works perfectly, but if I have more time I will try again with my Nikon D500. ;)

Hi Radek

Yes, I can verify that. I have the D7500 and also the D7000 and D750. The 7000 and 750 have no problems: FITS are NEF both save fine upon selection. The D7500 switches to jpeg when RAW is selected. But it actually save FITS just fine.
