    NX2 rumors

    I still have my NX1 too and i still prefer the 4k it produces to my GH5. I only use the GH5 for wildlife and some events, the combinaison of great IBIS and the lightweight of the M43 telezoom lenses is hard to beat. However, for everything else, i use my NX1 with the 30mm, 45mm, 85mm and the 16-50mm S. I will probably go to Sony with the A7III but i can't see a lens similar to the 16-50S or as good as the 50-150mm in the Sony system, the lack of good and affordable zoom is my main concern.
  2. APS-C : Samsung NX 16-50mm S F2/2.8 M43 : Panasonic 20mm F1.7
  3. Indeed, the NX1 (with 16-50S/50-150S) produces the best video quality i have ever seen. I like my GH5 for IBIS, 6K video, V-LOG etc but i prefer the 4k video from the NX1 (color, sharpness and contrast).
  4. Probably, but it's the only footage i've seen that doesn't have noise @ ISO 3200 (without Noise Reduction softwares).
  5. Yes grading is the key =), but in my case, even crushing the black or overexposing V-log don't help with 3200 ISO.
  6. 0-255 on the NX1 is odd with Premiere, even if we change the output to 16-235, the highlights stay a bit burned. However, using the brightness and contrast filter with contrast -14 helps.
  7. With a Pana Leica 25mm F1.4, i get a lot of noise @ 3200 ISO on V-LOG. You mean we can get less noise with a FF lens and SB on the same ISO ?
  8. I would like to know how this guy managed to get almost zero noise without using any Noise Reduction softwares ... Beautiful video by the way.
  9. I have a similar issue. Something activates the AUTO-ISO even in M mode.. This bug only happens when i start the camera.

    GH5 Prototype

    From Cinema5D : "We were presented with a ISO 6400 video sample and noise in the picture was very evident. On top of that, when shooting with high ISO settings, the camera will automatically reduce noise internally. This feature cannot currently be turned off and can only be controlled via the menu with high/mid/ and low settings. " Hope the NR will not smears out fine details like on the NX500/NX1 ... I will not buy this camera if it's true, it's my biggest complaint about my NX1.
  11. Hi, i have both lenses. The 50-150S OIS is better than 16-50S. The difference @50mm is signifiant. If you plan to use your lens for handled video, the 50-150S is the way to go. Furthermore, the 50-150S @150mm F/2.8 has a great bokeh. The first two pics are taken with the 50-150S @150mm F2.8 and the last one with the 85mm@F1.4
  12. I own the GH4/NX500/NX1 (with S lenses). The NX1 is the better of the lot for 4K, sharpest and cleanest below 800 ISO. The GH4 is very good too, you gain details at high ISO compared to NX1/NX500 but at the cost of grain. The NX500 is cropped, vastly softer than NX1 and the AF is not reliable (this is why lots of videos posted on the net with this camera seem very soft; the problem is the AF, quick but often innacurate).
  13. NX500 has a better 4k than NX1 ??? Are you serious ?
  14. I use -10 sharpness with wide focal length lenses (12mm to 30mm) and -5 for longer focal length lenses (30-150). By example, I get terrible results if i don't turn down the sharpness for landscapes.
  15. This is possible on the Gh4 and the camera is not so expensive.
  16. Use "M", "C1" or "C2" mode for the control of the Shutter speed.
  17. Very interesting post, the HEVC codec destroys fine details and even if the bitrate is very high, we will not see a big improvement. So the only option is a hack who allow to use a different codec ...
  18. Sadly, it's pretty clear for the default NR. If only Samsung could release a last update for the NX1 with the possibility to set NR settings ...
  19. With the recents firmwares, the result is the same ? I have not noticed a difference between DCI 4k and UHD. 1080P mode is a lot better than at the beginning for example.
  20. I have the same artefact in the sky sometimes with my NX1. I think the problem is the H265 codec. But the most annoying for me is the noise reduction applied automatically. It smears lower details even at low ISO.
  21. I haven't seen a lot of "UHD 120FPS" or "raw video" requests on DPREVIEW. Most people want some realistic features like 4k crop, UHD 60fps, the possibility to resize the af square in video or raw compression for photo. Samsung has a serious lack of lenses : not enough lenses below F1.8, not enough long lenses. They only have one lens announced, a 300mm F2.8 and its almost one year since the last lens came out. The NX system doesn't appear to be the system to buy at this time and the lack of marketing and availability doesn't help. The NX1 is a great camera which can become better and better and this is its strength.
  22. I bought it for 1500€ two months ago but i'm not upset, it's the tech market. But i bought it for video, so i will be upset if they plan to release a NX1-LX with better video features after they said they listen their customers about frequent firmware update. Most people can't spend 1600$ in a new body every six months.
