    Oh my! sell everything then and get the GH5 with the 12-60 2.8-4f!!

    These 2 lenses you have, they are my least favorite of the NX system, really unusable for night shooting. I own the PZ and it is very convenient for day time, small and sufficient, but the low quality of the lens shows with higher ISO. If you add the terrible NR of the camera on video, then this is a recipe for disaster!!

    Well it's more because of the NX1 horrible NR that nothing is good for night shooting.

    Anyway the GH5 is way too expensive for me, add a speed booster cause I'm for s35 look and you add even more money. For instance how do I get same field of view of the tokina 11-16 I got on the NX1? Sony a6300 only does that in 4k 24p, Fujifilm xt-2 just crops in every 4k mode, GH5 needs expensive accessories.

    I'm currently still an hobbyist and I can't quite justify spending those amounts :(

    Let us know please. You do not have much, if you want to change system you can easily. Sell the lenses as well, collect your 2400euros (in total) and buy whatever you want.

    If you care for video, I would suggest a used C100mkII, for hybrid GH5 is great, for photos, maybe X-T2, and some video of course.

    How did you come up with 2400 from my refunds? :p

    @sandro Do you have any NX lenses?

    The 16-50 kit lens (not refundable I guess since bought it from ebay from hong kong) and unfortunately the 18-200 that I used once for a job and sits unused since then, also it's not very good. I now asked also a refund for that and they'll let me know tomorrow.

    @kidzrevil They are giving him 1350euros (1520$), that is the most support I ever heard from a camera company! He probably had paid less back then. \

    Meanwhile, you have changed how many cameras since abandoning your NX1? (that is an honest, and serious question!)

    No wait that amount it's what I paid of course, nothing "generous" just the proof of purchase amount!

  5. Thank you everyone.

    I think I'm going with a used NX1, still not 100% sure though.
    I'm baffled cause I'm tempted with the sony a6300 but overheating thus losing shots is kinda unacceptable! Also you talk about a bad rolling shutter problem. Does the a6500 fix any problems? Like overheating and less crop? 

    Also the XT20 seems tempting but I would lose 120p :( I read it doesn't crop like the XT2 does but probably will have a lower quality? 


    Also I thought a used NX1 would cost less instead on eBay it's around €800-900

    a6300 is a no go if you are a NX1 user. Everything (except ISO as you mentioned) will be much worst. Maybe you can try Fuji, or GH5. Panasonic seems like the best bet right now, especially with the 12-60mm kit.

    How much is the refund, and where did you send it? Did you have the warranty and receipt?

    GH5 could be an option but If there's no advantage in low light there's no reason for me to add money for the switch and "downgrade" to m4/3.

    Fujitsu is interesting, what model and kind of money are we talking about? Weak points?

    The refund is €1350 (body only) and it's in Milan right now.

  7. Well the options are two:

    - get the refund and buy a used one, like getting a half refund for the trouble

    - get the refund and switch model, but to what? The only one that comes close (in terms of price of course) is the sony a6300 but i will lose the ergonmics, problem with overheating (still happening?) and weird colours. In return I get an exceptional low light performance which I hated about the nx1... I wouod finally be able to shoot above 1600 and beyond without worrying about getting a point and shoot look :) And also of course a system still alive!

    Very confused...

  8. Well guys no good news, kinda.

    The service center just called me and said they can't repair the sensor cause they don't know if they'll ever get the part or a new NX1 to give me as a replacement. So they offered me a full refund. Problem is if I accept it I'm out of options since I can't get a new one (not being sold anymore) and I can't find a valid substitute for the same money. Basically either i keep the defective product or I lose it. What would you do? :(

    They screwed me!

  9. Since the NX1 came out I used proxies, then Adobe added H.265 support but where you actually able to work with 4K H.265 files? Me never, so proxies are still needed. So what is so horrible in the meantime for GH5 to use proxies? They will add support for sure. 

    Is resolve actually good on Windows?

  10. Hi, 
    can someone recommend a good website where you can get free decent music (instrumental) to use as soundtrack for a documentary or educational projects?
    I found some but the songs are embarrassing to use :D
    I can of course credit the composer.

    Hi Sidi, thanks for your advice but this would be the good news, "Samsung finds interest in the NX system after months of silence!

    They sue me for similar mark, and I sue them for selling me a new camera and closed production after six months!!!!!

    I don't think it works that way...
