1973 Shootout of the 4K flagships – Canon 1D C versus Samsung NX1

Hollywood wanted a 4K DSLR so Canon saw an opportunity and enabled 1.3x 4K crop video mode on their 1D X. The 1D C was born and the £12,000 price tag made sure nobody bought it. With the Samsung NX1, the consumer didn’t want 4K H.265 but is getting it anyway, because Samsung wants them to buy that lovely 4K TV to view the footage with. This is called technological…

0 Samsung NX1 vs Canon C300 (image quality)

The Canon C300 (currently reduced to $11,500) was the $15,000 stalwart of the professional videographer, only recently did it have a compelling rival – the Sony FS7. The Samsung NX1 is essentially a cutting edge 4K Super 35mm sensor in a mirrorless camera, recently given a video oriented firmware update which improves dynamic range and the available image profiles.

0 Samsung NX1 with Sigma 35mm F1.4

The NX1 is now in stock at B&H for the first time In my first shoot with the NX1 I only had the rather cheap and cheerful kit zoom on the camera. That doesn’t go any faster than F3.5. I’ve since been ordering in some Canon / Nikon adapters and have found the Sigma ART lenses to be a perfect match for the Samsung NX1 in 4K. The video footage above was…

Although the Nikon D5 can only record 4K for up to 3 minutes at a time, the D500 can go for a full 30 minutes in one continuous take. The D500 also comes in much cheaper than the larger FX pro body.

4 Rumours claim Nikon have acquired Samsung’s NX technology

The already very strange Samsung controversy just took an unexpected turn. It must be noted this is a rumour and it is up to you whether to believe it or not!
