    • Petition for LOG video profile on Panasonic GX85
      I bet if you ask Matt Frazer he'll say it's something he'd like to see as well, but that's it's the strategy of the higher-ups in Japan not to do anything like that. Glad he managed to get some stuff going for the GH4. Which is more experimental add-ons than something anticipated from the get-go btw (like mentioned @ 34:45). The GX80/85... tough luck. While you're at it, might as well be petitioning Canon to add 4K to the 760D/T6s. At the end of the day though, I applaud the enthusiasm, but you can't just go and petition everything. Same was when Samsung was dropping the NX-line. I get you want stuff (doesn't everyone?), but it doesn't really work like that. It's something else if someone doesn't live up to some promise, but you know what you were getting yourself into... it's not like you've been wronged by them. It's just how business works. Blame segmentation. You want something better? Buy the more expensive model. GH4 too old and you like the GX80/85 but it's missing some of that mojo? Wait for the GH5. But hey, power to you for trying. Maybe I'm just overly pessimistic.

      @kidzrevil Can't speak for others but I have nx500 so no evf from me Great work Luca, I tried something similar (but much more primitive) with m42 a long time ago but I was unable to position the added elements precisely enough and got mostly useless results - your results are very positive! Regarding canon vs nikon - yes it is true that due to longer flange straight adapter will not work, but let's wait and see how much of the space is actually used by this adapter - it might be doable to shave a millimeter or there and get canon lenses to work.

      That would be probably a level shifter rather than a crude voltage divider.
      The power needed to run the conversion logic is so low that it shouldn't be a problem to just take it from camera body in the final revision of the intelligent SB (not running inefficient ATmega). Probably more along the lines of FPGA or an ARM (ultra low current Gecko maybe). Note that I haven't looked at the communication protocols so I don't know if it's a matter of simple lookup table or how much more number crunching needs to be done.

      It seems that the bigger Nanguang led fresnels have a good rep for colour ..there is even a smaller model http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/like/222043959567?lpid=107&chn=ps I'm hoping to see more of these mini led fresnels hit the market!

      There are some potentially useful files for the AF in the NX30 open source firmware, just do a search of the extracted files for "lens" to find some interesting stuff.  By my reading of the agreement when downloading the files I can't just tell you what's in there.  I'm not sure if it tells us much more than ihkim's work, but it might fill in some values.  If anyone doesn't know where to download those yet: http://opensource.samsung.com/reception/receptionSub.do?method=sub&sub=T&menu_item=photography&classification1=digital%20cameras I don't remember if these were still in the NX1/NX500 released files or not, that firmware is on my laptop at work and I don't want to download it again at the moment.  Regarding my interest only in the Canon side of things, I own 0 Nikon lenses but quite a few Canon lenses, including now some long glass (400 f/2.8).  Any optical design for the Canon will work for Nikon with only some length extension to the housing, but not vice versa if the Nikon design used that space.  There are more Canon lenses that need the aperture control.  So yes, a bit of a selfish interest, but that's how it is.
