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! There’s no official announcement but looking at it logically it would definitely explain why Samsung felt it ok to pull their NX system off the market despite having some very valuable (class leading) technology under the hood.

2488 The importance of firmware updates and why Panasonic are too late with V-LOG for the GH4

Opinion piece, by Andrew Reid In only a few months, 57 new features have been added to the Samsung NX1. Meanwhile Panasonic have been more keen than many to evolve their products, adding a 4K Photo mode to the GH4 and 24p for 4:3 shooting, a nod to anamorphic filmmakers. But it isn’t enough. No anamorphic de-squeeze for instance and now the time it has taken for V-LOG to reach us has been too long.…

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. I was curious to see how the images from these cameras compared and I put my Canon 1D…

0 Atomos Shogun Review – Part 1

This is an early look for now, my unit has only just arrived!! I will be posting some ProRes samples in 4K from the A7S later this weekend. This is a device that’s set to unleash total magic from the Sony A7S in 4K. It also offers a way for Panasonic GH4 users to record 4K in 10bit to ProRes rather than heavily compressed 8bit 4:2:0 H.264. For the Samsung NX1 it is also…

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…
