  1. 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 ...
  2. 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 ...
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. ​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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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 ...
  10. 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 ?
  11. 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 .
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. ​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.
  15. ​Sorry, here is the good link : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mxVvDZILEHE
  16. 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
  17. 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 )
  18. ​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.
  19. ​Do you also have the Af indicator and the possibility to switch bewteen the LCD and EVF during video recording ?
  20. I have the V1.21 firmware and i can't do that either.
  21. No, only for 1080P recording. ​FHD = Full HD = 1080P.
