  1. ​I've done it once with my 45-175mm and my E-M10 (just 3 axis IBIS). At least for still, looking in the EVF while framing, the IBIS in the E-M10 looked a little bit more stable compared when I turn off the IBIS and use the lens OIS.
  2. ​Never used the NX1, but I use peaking in my Panasonics. For fixed shots (where I don't change de focal distance I think that the enlarged view is ok - even preferred), but when I have to change focus while filming, pressing a button to bring the enlarged view (if you are working with non-native lenses) could introduce some shaking in the camera; I got better results with peaking.
  3. No peaking in 4k/UHD is a deal breaker for me. But Andrew, if you could make some comparison shots between the NX500 / LX100 (I'll buy one of those in 2 weeks), especially in low light, my thanks in advance.
  4. ​A lot of cheaper cameras have focus peaking. The 4k crop could be understandable because of processing / heat issues / market segmentation, but no peaking in 4k s a very BIG flaw.
  5. Well, no focus peaking in 4k was the final deal breaker for me - more than the crop factor. A shame, since the first samples that people are putting in youtube have very good resolution.
  6. I'm interested in this new sensor. Since the E-M1 mark II rumours mention a 18mp sensor too, I guess that finally a new MFT sensor is coming.
  7. If the 4k image is generated from a 1:1 3840 (or 4096) x2160 pixels crop from the center of the sensor, and the pixel size from the NX500 is a little bit smaller than GH4's, I guess that the crop is a little bit higher than the GH4's - then the 2,58x crop looks correct.
  8. In other forums people noticed that the Samsung now says that the NX500 have a "DRIM Vs" chipset (the NX1 have a DRIM V). Probably a underclocked version.
  9. At least the 4k crop mode was confirmed in the Korean NX500 site: http://www.samsung.com/sec/consumer/store-only/store-camera/product/EV-NX500ZAMIKR (you can use Google Translate to help) The same site have a formware for download, version 1.0 - that means a defintive first production firmware.
  10. ​The low light performance was better than I expected. The softness is present, but worked well with the video. Only the aliasing was perturbuing, when filming the car lights.
  11. Kind a bummer for me too, because I want to buy the NX500 for concert handheld recording - which means that I need OIS. With my GX7 I use the 20mm f/1.7 a lot (with the 2x crop factor it is 40mm in FF), then the 38,5mm with a 16mm (widest OIS lens in Samsung lineup) is similar. But I was wishing the 24mm field of view. But a 1:1 sensor crop probably will eliminate moire, or I'm wrong?
  12. ​I doubt it. All these rumors sites only publish compliments for the brands, never criticism.
  13. ​Some people said (I guess John was one of those) that you can change the exposure settings...but only using the touchsceen, not the physical controls.
  14. ​Vlad, do you have any footage sample made with the Ninja Star, especially about moire, aliasing and softness? Only 30fps was available, not 24p, with the Ninja and the Star? And when using the Star, the LCD display in the camera stays with live feed or an external monitor connected in the Star is mandatory?
  15. Rio de Janeiro, I live here (the last shot was made near my apartment). Brave guy to bring a Phase One to Rocinha (the first shot) and return with the camera back home.
  16. ​Thanks, that was exactly the kind of footage that I was looking for.
  17. Good video too. In good light the image is really good, but the dark segments in the begenning are somewhat noisier, no?
  18. ​When using adapted lenses, you must dial manually in the focal lenght of the lens that you're using; you can use a adapted zoom lens, but will have to choose a focal lenght, dial in the value and stay with it. With m4/3 zooms, there are no problems, since the focal lenght value is transmitted electronically.
  19. Downloaded the John files (Curiosity is a great video, by the way). One improvement is visible: tree leaves don't became a blotchy mess, like the E-M5 - the bitrate helped a lot. Some doubts about sharpness (because of some other test videos) and low light performance.
  20. I was planning to get a LX100 to film some live music concerts in 4k - the original plan was to buy a Panny 12-35 f/2.8 to use with my GX7 (my current camera for movies), because I shoot handheld in these cases; since the LX100 is cheaper than the 12-35mm AND comes with a 4k camera attached, was an obvious choice... ...until today. Now I think that this NX500 could be the one; I know that I'll have to buy a stabilized lens for handheld shooting, but I know that the NX1 image is much better than the LX100, and I suppose that the NX500 would be the same. For daylight work, I can use rigs / tripods and my bunch of legacy glass - and in this scenario, I know that the NX500 probably will be better. But about low light performance, my question for Andrew or someone that already used both cameras in low light: supposing that the NX500 have the same low light performance of the NX1, is it better than the LX100? My question is because of the sensor pixel pitch of them - 3,86 microns in the LX100, 3,63 in the NX1/NX500; the LX100 pixels are slightly larger, but the Samsung sensor is BSI. Which one have the clearer / less noisier image in ISO 1600 and 3200? Any help would br appreciated (disclaimer: I'm not a pro, since I don't have the money for the perfect camera for the concert scenario, the Sony A7s )
  21. E-M1 is still interesting for people that shoot stills with the older 4/3 glass, since it have PDAF focusing and this new E-M5 is only CDAF. And it has more controls and (I suspect) that the weather sealing still be better in the E-M1. But for movies (and for me), this new one is much more interesting. The great question is moire and aliasing. Bigger bitrates are better, but if poorly implemented (like in the new A7 II), are useless. What worries me is that all the rumor sites says that the sensor in this new E-M5 is the same Sony sensor from the E-M5; for stills, it still (no pun intended) a very good sensor; but since it is somewhat old, I don't know if it is capable tu use full readout for video. The sensor code is IMX 109, but I could not find its datasheet anywhere. If they use the E-M1 sensor without PDAF (which is a variant from the GX7 / GH4 sensor, with PDAF), would be amazing - this sensor is full readout and (yes) 4k capable. No words about the HDMI output quality yet, too. But the presence of a full tilt LCD (the "pure photography" people are complaining all over the Olympus forums about it) hints that Olympus is taking the video side seriously.
  22. "The GM1 is $749 with 12-32mm lens." The GX7 kit is even cheaper, $589,99 in eBay.
  23. Maybe the (supposed) use of Tizen as the operational system of the camera is speeding up the development process. And now is very clear that Samsung put an insane amount of power processing in the camera - probably the NX1 will have a longer lifecycle, being updated by firmware. And clearly they have a very clever manager taking care of this project.
  24. Gordon Laing in the (very detailed) CameraLabs review said that there is no filter thread, hence the confusion.
  25. Will follow closely the reviews of this camera. Specially one from Andrew, when possible. I was planning to buy the 12-35mm f2.8 to shoot handheld with my GX7, because of the OIS. But as stated previously, this camera have a lens with better specs with OIS AND records 4k for a lower price than the 12-35mm alone. I guess that the 12-35mm f2.8 might have a better optical performance for stills, but probably not a lot for video. Will miss the flip screen, and touchscreen will be missed for stills - but I have better cameras for stills. And to people which wants a single "do it all" camera, it one of the best packages on the market. Very good, Panasonic.
