Just a couple of days after someone figured how to record videos using any Canon Liveview capable DSLR cameras, a Nikon hacker did the same with his D700 and the SDK available for free from Nikon.

The video quality isn’t great: ~30% less than 480P (the DVD standard). It also requires a computer tethered to the camera using the USB port. Things may be interesting if there is a way to grab the frames via the HDMI port.

There is not software to download it yet. The blogger, Olivier Giroux, hinted that it is coming at the end of the post. If you are good at programing, you may want to download the SDK and code up something interesting. A free version of the Nikon Camera Control Pro would be nice.
