Samsung NX Smart Camera Hacks
This project is rather dormant since 2015, and wouldn't mind getting an interested and committed new maintainer.
This is a collection of scripts, hacks and knowledge for the Linux-based Samsung NX camera models. This project is work-in-progess, aimed at power users who have no fear of formatting their SD card, upgrading and downgrading firmware etc.
This information is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY. The authors take no responsibility for deleting your baby photographs, bricking your expensive camera or making demons fly out of your nose.
