  1. Yes, they're junk. I think it'd be unwise to leave them in the camera during prolonged storage. Anyone have recommendation for a good 3rd party battery?
  2. Received my Power2000 batteries and charger for the NX500. Today. Not impressed, they don't fit perfectly into the camera like the stock battery does. Let's see if they hold a chage. Disappointed so far.
  3. Can you comment on the improvement of the nx500 post hack? Did you do any comparison?
  4. Sounds like you weren't in love wtih the 2.5k image. I've heard reports it's plagued by moire, aliasing, and skew. You've mentioned before it was a clean image with good motion cadence. able to elaborate?
  5. the stock NX500 screen doesn't show the image? I have to use an external monitor? Also, do you get the cropped 4k FOV? You'd get full view right?
  6. Are there now options for editing 4k h265 natively?
  7. I understand that the 2.5k video mode for the nx500 is a reality now via the hack. Are there any reviews or opinions on the benefits of this hack? What does it give you in real world terms beyond what the stock settings provide? less moire? less noise? less skewing? less aliasing? what are the pros and cons? thank you.
  8. ​This has been my experience too after some months with the NX1. Worst of all is frequent aliasing. I simply cannot recommend this camera if your intent is video. NX1 seems to under perform its specs and I think it's a bust in terms of video capability. Stills is another story. For 3 grand you can get a way better video camera (body plus 16-50 package). I pulled out an my old weather worn GH2 today and did some home vids. Looked way way way cleaner and artifact free than the NX1. Samsung needs to get serious about optimizing this cams alleged potential, these firmware updates are just nibbles along the edges, the camera just isn't that good at video, it needs nearly a perfect storm of small lighting ratios and carefully chosen subjects that won't alias to get a good image in video.
  9. NX1 owners are very defensive about the NX1's image, they claim either the NX1 doesn't alias at all, or that the aliasing, if any, is from scaling a 4k image on to 1080p display. Why doesn't the GH4 alias then? Like, at all? It's scaling too, so why no aliasing?
  10. Rumors? wish we had some support.
  11. I'm no soundie but have operated under the assumption that the right shock mount is determined by the mic you use.
  12. I was the one who said it's scaling and asked a specific question about 4k display. there is no negativity in this thread.
  13. But on a 720 display. So presumably it's the scaling. Do we need to get a 4k display to determine where the real aliasing is and which is just scaling issues? I showed some footage to client and I was horrified by the ubiquitous aliasing, client actually said "your footage is beautiful". nonetheless, this could be a big prob in the future.
  14. Sorry, yes, in stills mode I can do it. Hasn't the cam always been that way?
  15. Doesn't 1080p in the nx1 have very little rolling shutter? Moire is the one the bugs me the most...
  16. I'm not having those issues. Can firmware be reinstalled? Was your battery fully charged during the install?
  17. I was never satisfied with how the dr60 mates to the camera. I usually strap mine around my neck or drape it on my tripod with said neck strap.
  18. is the dr70 smaller than the dr60? I have the dr60. you can get them cheap now. they're great.
  19. ​I was wondering about a remote shooting app too. I was in an unusual shoot today where I really couldn't man my nx1 , manual focusing was dicey because I only had a few brief seconds to set the shot, and the semi auto focus would've been ideal but i couldn't quite figure it out. A remote app wouldve been perfect as well. sorry to hear it's not too good.
  20. ​I played around with that and it's extremely cool. I find it super hard though to actually implement such capabilities into my shooting style because I am so locked in to manual focus in video mode. I am essentially terrified of giving up any sovereignty to the software. That's how Skynet got started after all.
  21. OKay, that was easy enough, Looks like it's the AF ON button just above the MENU button that gives you semi auto focus with a lock so it won't keep hunting for focus.
