  1. ​I agree, i have both cameras and the NX1 highlights are really worse. I get better result with GH4/CineV profile (CineD is awful). However, like j.f.r. said, both cameras have poor DR and the NX1 has better resolution and colors.
  2. I bought it for 1510€ two months ago (+ the 16-50S lens for 1000€). I never expected the NX1 falls in price so fast. I will remember this for next time, thanks Samsung.
  3. Some people have bought the NX1 with Rhode mic($220 value), SD card, Lightroom 5 and $51 back for only $1300 at Adorama. There is some NX1 + 16-50pz lens for only $1,299.00 on ebay : http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/331509548707 ( you can see at the top of the page : "The original item has sold for US $1,299.00. We have selected another similar item below) And Fotohanskeuzekamp has an offer for €1999,- for the body and 16-50S lens http://www.fotohanskeuzekamp.nl/producten_zoeken/nx1/1/pagina.html. It's great but not for people who have bought it some days/weeks ago ...
  4. Is it really true that Samsung want to update the NX1 firmware monthly ? Or is it a rumor like the 100% CAF improvement and 4k crop mode ?
  5. My impressions so far with the NX1 compared to GH4 (for video use) : Pro's - Image quality is better, even if you turn sharpness all the way down, there is still a lot of details. - Autofocus is better too. With good light, the AF is really fast and can track a subject with continuous autofocus. But in low light the NX1 is about equal to the Gh4. - The swallow DOF, 1.5x crop in photo and video (2.3x for the Gh4 in video). - The 16-50mm S : thanks to the F2 aperture @16mm, it's a great and sharp all-rounder lens. - Better slowmotion quality. - ISO 100 available and almost noise-free until ISO 800. Con's - The rolling shutter is worse than GH4 in UHD (but very good in 1080p), if you shoot without moving a lot, no problem, but if you move or pan, it is bad. - The Dynamic range is good but you must be carefull with the highlights, the zebras are not accurates. The NX1 has probably more DR stops in shadows than in highlights (unusual). - Noise reduction setting not available yet (starting at iso 400, the noise reduction smears details a bit). - The OIS of the lumix 12-35 is better (compared to the NX 16-50mm S). - The focus square can't be moved with the buttons (only with the touch screen) and can't be shrunk during video recording. - H265 not supported by a lot of editing softwares. - Heavier (pro zoom lens are heavier and larger too). In conclusion, i like them both, but for me, it may be easier to use the GH4 for now. When the editing softwares will support the H265 and when Samsung will solve problems that can be corrected, no doubts the NX1 will be the king .
  6. I think, to the contrary, that the Nx1 clips are sharper but we don't know if the two camera have the same base sharpening at default settings.
  7. http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/samsung-nx500/samsung-nx500-shooters-report.htm The review is updated and the new video sample is much better.
  8. ​I don't know but based on the videos posted on several websites, for now, i'm not impressed I linked this video because there is not a lot of NX500 clips at the moment. Hopefully, there will be better videos sample soon.
  9. ​Sorry, here is the good link : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mxVvDZILEHE
  10. A 4K test with the 50-150mm S : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mxVvDZILEHE Even if the youtube compression doesn't help, I find the quality is not that good. Edit : link updated
  11. I have the 50-150 S since two days and indeed this is a gorgeous lens with very fast AF. Quick test with this lens (the video can be downladed in 4k on vimeo or with dropbox here : https://www.dropbox.com/s/w8she301mvosyvl/SAM_3868.mp4?dl=0 )
  12. ​It's the same for me, that's what I thought. I think Brian Luce and The Chris can switch Display/EVF only in still mode and not during video recording.
  13. ​Do you also have the Af indicator and the possibility to switch bewteen the LCD and EVF during video recording ?
  14. I have the V1.21 firmware and i can't do that either.
  15. No, only for 1080P recording. ​FHD = Full HD = 1080P.
  16. I have made a quick test with the Gh4 and the NX1 in the same places and with the same grading method for those who are curious to see the IQ difference. GH4 + 12-35mm UHD (CINE V, sharpness -1, NR -5, no I-settings) : https://www.dropbox.com/s/ywyvbs6mgw6ezdi/GH4.mp4?dl=0 NX1 + 16-50mm S UHD (Gamma DR, contrast -2, sharpness -10) https://www.dropbox.com/s/vlb2debxnb4aaqr/NX1.mp4?dl=0
  17. ​Did you use 4k or UHD with your NX1 ? Reviewers have shown that the image looks a lot softer in 4k. The quality has been improved in 4k since the last firmware or the UHD is still better ?
  18. ​The Gh4 has the same aliasing when there is straight lines just like in your video.
  19. The quality has been improved in 4k since the last firmware or the UHD is still better ?
  20. ​Here is a test with the two modes (30fps and 120fps) and yes Pro mode is available with both frame rate : https://www.dropbox.com/s/sidw6aoooo5a9af/SAM_0360%40120fps.MP4?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/ssscqjv4sst344p/SAM_0361%4030fps.MP4?dl=0 Thanks Andrew for your tips, i will try it but i haven't seen difference between Gamma DR and Standard mode.
  21. ​The new 1080p Pro mode is really good and the 120fps mode is better to that of Gh4. The 4k rolling shutter is bad but if you move or pan slowly, there is no real problem. However, even with the GammaDR, im not really impressed by the dynamic range, the highlights burn very easily.
