    @iamoui These look really nice...organic, even.  How do you like film convert for the NX1 footage?

    @timmyturntable Thank you! That's kind of you to say. 

    I really enjoy using FilmConvert. I started using Andrew's Gamma DR settings, applying his LOG LUT, then using the Sony A7S slog + gamut profile and I really liked it. Now I use Ricardo's standard profile settings and use the Red Epic M Redcolor3 - Redgamma3 profile and I love it! It's hard to get bad colors out of the NX1. Right off the bat it delivers a great image and colors, especially for the price. Using the bit rate hack (180mbps) and downsampling to 1080 ProRes HQ is amazing. The image is very workable and you can pretty much achieve any look you want in post. 

  2. Well, I gave Ricardo's settings a try. I really like it! Here are a few grabs from a recent promo video I did for the band I play in. You can watch the full video at our Facebook page. Really quick, no budget. I'm a noob when it comes to this stuff and enjoy doing it for fun, the process, and for promoting my band.

    Rokinon 12mm F2 for the ultra-wide. Canon FD 24mm F2 for the wide and close-ups. Tiffen Black Pro Mist 1/4 and Genus Eclipse ND Fader were on the FD 24mm. 

    Grading was FilmConvert Red Epic M Redcolor 3 - Redgamma 3, FJ Velv plus FCPX Color corrector.

    Audio was Rode Video Micro straight in to NX1

    UHD-1 24p with Vasile's latest nx-on-wake mod 180mbps downsampled to 1080p ProRes HQ using RockyMountain then upscaled to 2048 X 1080p in FCPX

    @iamoui I just enabled it let me know if you can DL now

    Downloaded. I can still seem some in the original file, just not as noticeable as it is on Vimeo. Examples: 0:31 very left side of the frame. 0:35 the black under-side of whatever that is. 1:11 basically everything in the shadows. After you open the iris it's just in her hair. 

    What kind of file format is the original file? When I downloaded it and opened it in QuickTime it had to convert before it played.

    can you download the original off of my vimeo ? I don't see any macroblocking in the raw files but im sure if you catch some its due to vimeo compression. @iamoui

    Ahhh, right. I don't see an option to download on the vimeo page.

    180 mbps Kinoseed hack

    even with master black level at +15 there is absolutely NO macroblocking !

    Honestly man this looks great, but I still see macroblocking in the shadows at times.

    Ricardo is always posting such gorgeous framegrabs in this thread, so I wanted to give his settings a try for myself on my latest project... I'm really liking the way these are looking. (Graded with DeLuts and filmconvert)

    Gorgeous! What are Ricardo's settings?

    @iamoui significant advantage for shooting RAW stills over JPG. I haven't shot raw video yet but im sure the advantage is the same. Still I won't lose sleep over shooting 8 bit. Like JPG the closer you come to getting the look you want in camera the easier the image holds up to grading in my experience

    I think you meant to tag Liam.

    wasn;t off, should it be off? didn't know that, i'll try with it off just don't have it with me now, good to know. thx

    DIS does not work with 120/100fps. If DIS is enabled, you will not be able to choose 120/100fps

    I think warp stabilizer is causing that. I need to check original footage again. Bitrate was 180mbps

    Are you sure? I'm shooting with Vasile's newest 5.02 patch and even at 120mbps I'm getting a variable frame rate when shooting 120fps, instead of a constant 120fps.

    edit: Just tried 60fps at 180mbs and getting a constant 60fps. I wonder what's up with the 120mbs 120fps. With KS mod pack I was getting constant 120fps with 120mbps

    edit: Tried 120fps at 110mbps and got a constant 120fps!

    Tested Vasile´s patch v4.12 today.

    Clips 100fps and 50fps 1080p. 
    NX1 with Canon 50mm 1.8 FD lens.
    GammaDR / Sat -3 / Sha -7 / Hue -9 / MBL +15
    M31 Lut + curves 

    Dropped frames at 0:20? What bitrate were you using?

    The 0.95 green thingwill throw the calibration off. I'd advise against that color shift thing. Idk where ya'll got the idea to do that but in my experience it affects the color accuracy cause all its doing is removing green from the color channel and throwing everything else off. You better off shooting with -2 or -3 saturation to prevent channels from clipping and it will also ensure compatibility with filmconvert when its released @NX1user

    @Andrew Reid recommends the 0.95 green in his NX1 guide. Although, in this article he states "Alas the NX1 has a screen of RGB sliders for each picture profile and a hue adjustment. Does dialling down green or shifting the hue away from green and towards magenta solve the problem? No, it just desaturates the greens!" The problem he's talking about is how much green the NX1 renders (at least compared to the 1DC).

    that would be incredible ! I just installed 1.41 and the kino seed update and the UI is so fast, so responsive ! Looks like it is performing better than it did on 1.40

    And the bit rate hack is working for the NX1 with the new firmware and new Kinoseed pack?

  13. 11 minutes ago, kidzrevil said:

    And this is with the new hack for 1.41 ?

    No this is with one of Kinoseeds mod packs for 1.40 firmware. I didn't see any reason to upgrade to 1.41. I use an iPhone, and I love the bit rate hack!

    edit: wait, what new hack for 1.41? Vasile's?

    edit2: just read through the dpreview thread on vasile's new hack for 1.41 and saw that someone claimed to have true 120fps at 180mbps. Guess I'm going to have to test it tomorrow!

    Hmm, maybe we should do 120 for HD and 160 for UHD ? Maybe thats the sweet spot 

    120mbps for 120fps HD. 160/180mbps was fine and kept a fixed frame rate for 24p/30p/60p HD. Again, this was limited testing. 

    What I've done for HD is set the Pro to 180mbps for when I want to use 24p/60p and the HQ to 120mbps for 120fps. It's a lot quicker than going in to the hack GUI and changing the bit rate manually.

    I feel the same way 180mbps I only need as well. Thanks again everyone. Loving my NX1 on 1.40 with bitrate hack 

    Hi forum and community members .I Have a question yesterday I try recording in 1080p 120 slow motion and with the 180mbps using pro mode but the video is not slow mode 120. I was using Sutter speed 1/125 does that restricted the 120 slow mode or is it the bitrate hack. Thanks for the help.

    In my limited testing I've found that 180mbps is too much for the NX1 to handle for 120fps. It records at a variable frame rate instead of a fixed 120fps. Bumping the bit rate down to 120mbps has kept the fixed 120fps for me.

    Lame, yes... But it is intriguing that they are still working on this product.

    I think they only updated the firmware because they were getting so many complaints about the Samsung Camera Manager App not working with Android or whatever. 

    I won't update until Kino's modpack get's updated and is sure to work with the new firmware.

    Got it working now. Seems that it doesn't work before the message "mod 1.38". Maybe the mod isn't loaded before it. Once I think I got the message by pressing Fn button, but maybe it was some other thing I did.

    For me it's the playback button.
