  1. Thank you for the video ! I'm an early adopter and still user of the NX1, and have been waiting for a replacement, but haven't found anything to make me want to change yet. I'm not a big fan of the texture and motion of this video personaly. I hate to use this expression because most of the time it doesn't mean much, but I found it to look very videoish - not filmic at all... I'm not sure about the dynamic range since the blacks are pretty crushed but the highlight rolloff intrigues me. Would be happy to have the community opinion on this Fuji :) Great day everyone, with hopefully very interesting revelations from Panasonic...
  2. If I come to your balcony and sing a song, can I get a free NXL too ? Love your work Luca, I'm a big fan <3
  3. Maybe an alien civilization is watching this post right now thinking : WTF is wrong with them humans ?
  4. Just grabbed 4 days of popcorn !

    NX2 rumors

    Wondering how much process power would require 12bits or even 10bits H265... I could definitely work with that !

    NX2 rumors

    Not that I want to sound picky, but I feel like I'd rather go with a 10bit H265 - that would keep the same workflow that we have - vs RAW - with a complicated workflow / no EVF / no Sound. What do you guys think ? (not that it's a real debate, but since all of these RAW talks are just pure speculation / no offense)
  7. Depends a lot of the bitrate of the file. I can edit natively my NX500 files at regular bitrates in 4K, however my 150Mb/s files from my hacked NX1 need transcoding (done directly in premiere pro).
  8. I have another source that says Canon will upgrade your 5D Mark II to a Red Epic. For free. Hey don't look at me like that ,I'm just sharing with the community !
  9. I don't see how anyone should be surprised such a small sensor isn't doing great at ISO6400... Most S35 sensors aren't any good past 1600ISO... :/ I don't know why manufacturers don't allow us to turn it down...
  10. By sacrificing their flagship ^^
  11. I use AF a lot - especially on Gimbal or doc work. Also sometimes I just use it to get the focus point then I switch to MF. But it helps if the AF is precise (especially in low light where focus peaking can be tricky sometimes). AF is a deal breaker for me. Just speaking for myself.
  12. I'm still amazed that we don't have any raw option for video. Magic Lantern hacked the 5D Mark II 4 years ago ! Not even for 1080P ? Blackmagic pocket also came out in 2013... This is not a critic just for Panasonic, I think the same about Sony and Canon. But seriously anyone interested in raw would probably be ok to pay a couple hundred euros to have it as an option. So I'm happy that Panasonic is moving forward and that we can all be amazed by 10bit 422...while RAW 14bit has been available for 4 years on other DSLR...
  13. Personally I'll be waiting to see more footage out of this camera. Because I'm still addicted and in love with my NX1. I work in stills and movies and it's very strong in both. I love how my clients are always blown out by the colors and details from the image straight out of the camera. And also because I have never been a big fan of GHx color science or noise management (I find the image never clean enough for my taste). I don't really like speed boosters because you usually lose some AF speed, and also it's expensive. First low light tests I have seen haven't blown me away. I'm not saying I'll never be interested in the GH5, but I have never been a camera "early adopter".
  14. As long as companies such as panasonic, canon and sony will try to protect their higher end cameras by not including RAW, I think the NX1 will have a say, because of its ergonomics, 6k sensor, speed, autofocus, and also its community !
  15. Could it be the effect of the ND filter ? Some have a dark cast that (maybe ??) could explain the difference. If not its strange because this test shows that the NX1 would have more DR at ISO500 that ISO100...
  16. After abandoning the NX community just after releasing two news cameras (NX1 & NX500) and pro lenses, I don't see anyone in their right mind investing any of their money again if Samsung ever had the idea of coming back to take more of our money. Camera market is not a market where you can just come and go. Reputation is (almost) everything. Samsung were given the benefit of the doubt but most professionnals did not switch from their Canons or Nikons to Samsung because of their lack of history in the PRO camera business. Mark my words - which are just my analysis and don't come from anywhere else - if Samsung ever comes back to the camera industry (which I HIGHLY DOUBT THEY EVER WILL) it would be a total economic failure. Because no one will trust them again - especially people who will own by then GHx and Sony A7R x cameras-.
  17. " there been words that Samsung is once again putting focus on their mirrorless cameras." Thanks for your answer SMGJohn. I understand that it is not a fact, but I would like to know if you could give your source for the "words". If its a rumor I am still interested in the source of the rumor is all. "I am just repeating what I have heard" - so I am just asking : where have you heard ? Thanks !
  18. Could we have the sources of this information please ? - not a big fan of rumors
  19. Just adding a bit of my experience with NX1 : If you work on Premiere Pro you don't need to convert NX1 footage. Also if you find the footage too sharp, which is also my case, you can dial the sharpness down all the way to -10. But also use either a slight gaussian blur (+5 in Premiere Pro) or add a bit of softness in Filmconvert.
  20. Thats the article : http://www.lesnumeriques.com/photo/photokina-2016-que-deviennent-ingenieurs-opticiens-samsung-n56107.html - Its in french - "Cette désertion ne fait pas que des malheureux. Chez Samsung même, l'expérience acquise est bénéfique à la division mobile. En dehors de Samsung, les ingénieurs au chômage technique ont trouvé refuge dans la nouvelle usine de Samyang inaugurée l'année dernière. Ces deux facteurs expliquent mieux l'impressionnante cadence de sorties de nouveautés du coréen ces derniers mois. "Samsung a arrêté ses appareils photographiques et ses objectifs" nous explique monsieur Jeong Min, "nous travaillons à recruter leurs anciens ingénieurs, certains d'entre eux sont déjà avec nous, d'autres sont restés chez Samsung parce qu'ils ont besoin d'eux pour, notamment, le design optique des smartphones. Samsung et Samyang entretiennent de bonnes relations. Jusqu'à présent, nous nous sommes échangés des pièces et des procédés. C'est une bonne collaboration." Du coup, la question de la présence de Samyang dans des optiques de smartphone se pose. Suggestion déclinée par monsieur Jeong Min : "pour le moment Samyang ne pense pas travailler sur des smartphones. Les procédés sont très différents entre nos gros objectifs et ceux beaucoup plus petits des smartphones. Il existe de toute manière déjà trois à quatre gros sous-traitants pour les modules photographiques des smartphones, nous ne pouvons pas entrer en compétition avec eux à cause des gros volumes en jeu, soit près de 100 millions d'unités par an. Nous ne sommes pas capables de suivre cette cadence." (I'll try a very quick translation sorry for the approximation) - Samsung quitting the market didn't have only bad consequences. At Samsung itself, the experience acquired with the cameras will be transfered to the mobile/cell phone division. Aside from Samsung, the engineers who were unemployed found refuge at the new factory of Samyang. The two factors explain the impressive rythm of new products coming out of the korean manufacturer. "Samsung stopped its cameras and lenses" explains Jeong Min, "we work to recruit the former engineers, some are already working with us, others stayed at Samsung because they need them for the optical design for their smartphones. Samsung and Samyang have a good relationship. Until now, we have exchanged pieces and procedes/workflows. Its a good collaboration". Now the question of the presence of Samyang in Samsung's optics and smartphones is legitimate. Suggestion declined by Mr. Jeong Min : "for now Samyang doesn't think about working on smartphones. Procedes are too different between our big lenses and those much smaller on smartphones. There are already 3 to 4 subcontractors working on photographic modules for smartphones, we cannot get into competition with them, because of how big the volumes are, around 100 millions unit a year. We cannot follow this rythm."
  21. Just read an article : samsung engineers working on NX line up have been hired by Samyang... Which would also explain how they have been getting so many new products out there !
  22. So this camera has been shipping for almost a month and this is the only image we got to see ? Something is really OFF.
  23. Don't sell anything. Just buy a samsung NX1 for those 4K ultra detailed image you might need.
