    NX1user reacted to Kisaha in Samsung NX Speed Booster   
    Come on people, give the guy a brake! Let him finish his personal project, and then we can propose improvements or be critical in ergonomics and IQ.
    In any way, Luca invests his personal time and money, and it is truly admirable what he has achieved so far (something that even metabones didn't touch). I believe that AFTER the product is finished there are a lot of experimenting and testing to check the real possibilities and improvements of the adapter. I hope someone will take it from there and add electronics, even if it takes a while arduino board on a box somewhere!

    No, you do not modify the body camera. If you get a speed booster EF, you can use all full frame lenses: Canon EF, Sigma SA, Praktica (baionet P/B),Minolta AF/Sony Alpha, Exakta, M39 ( ZM39), M42, Pentax k, Contax/Yashica (C/Y), DKL mount, Yashica MA,  Olympus OM, Nikon G/F , Leica R, Arri STD-B-PL, Mini T - T - T2 mount, Novolfex A mount.
    One speed booster for all lenses! Are you happy?

    After much work and many sleepless nights, I have almost finished my work and I think I have brought the lens NXL to the point of being sold to the public.
    I thought if the test this week will be positive to produce it with Canon EF mount dumb to which you can add a Nikon adapter with iris aperture control.
    At this stage it allows to mount all Nikon and Canon lenses, in the future I will continue to work to enable the electronic control of the lenses.

    Hi all, FilmConvert here. We've just released a v2 of the NX1 camera profile which corrects some of the color issues you may have experienced. Download from www.filmconvert.com/download/camera-profile

    I actually prefer using the Filmconvert 'default camera' profile over NX1 profile(s) as those indeed give too much red and too little saturation in the blues.

    Here is a video I did today, graded with Filmconvert and shot on the RX100m4 & NX1:

    Hi guys, FilmConvert here. Just wanted to let you know we've heard the feedback about some redness in the NX1 profile. We're doing some more QA here, and may release a new version of the profile shortly.

    I successfully installed and used the KS mod in my NX1. I filmed 4K at 180mbps for 10 days of shooting an indy film. The only glitch was if I left my camera plugged into a monitor and powered the camera off, I would have to remove the HDMI cable whenI powered it back up or the camera would lock up. The only fix was to remove and re-insert the battery.
    After filming wrapped, I thought I'd try the Vasile mod. I love the quick startup! Unfortunately, there's a problem right now where 1080 footage at any speed doesn't record at the bitrate I set. Depending on the FPS, it records at 40-60mbps. Vasile knows about the issue, but he's on vacation until August. I have some filming to do before then.
    So, my question is "Is it safe to uninstall the Vasile mod and re-install the KS mod?" I just want to make sure that the "nx-on-wake" thing won't be a problem. I know Vasile says it's okay, but has anyone uninstalled it and installed the KS mod after?

    100% agree on the reflector. Bringing down highlight levels in post after they're blown doesn't quite give you the image you're looking for. If only we all had arri alexas!
    I find also sometimes it helps to back off the LUTs / film emulation a touch, they tend to saturate and blotch up the image a bit I find. And if you combine that with adding sharpness and contrast, it creates this strange posterizing effect on the out of focus elements. Maybe the bitrate hack would help with this too, with more information there, the less the image falls apart when manipulating it.

    Have you installed either of the bitrate hacks for the NX1? You can do a lot with the footage in post because of the high bitrate. Check out:
    https://vimeo.com/kidzrevil
    He's got a ton of higher bitrate NX1 footage posted. He uses filmconvert which gets rid of that digital look you're talking about. He posts a lot on this forum.
    I just got film convert myself and it really helps make the NX1 image look more pleasing. (nothing I can share yet though).

    I don't have a side-by-side comparison for you. The videos I saw, I didn't see much difference either. But since the hack was free I installed it. I notice much less noise in shadow areas and less or zero compression artifacts in things like movement over asphalt, leaves on trees on a windy day. etc. in other words fine details.
    The other thing with the NX1 is, like all cameras, it gives you much better results when you light your subjects properly (even when going for the "natural" light look). The NX1, to my eye, has a huge difference in quality between lit and unlit compared to other cameras where I could compare (C100, AF100). ON your subject under the tree, if you had used a reflector or a light, you'd see big jump in quality.
    Try either of the hacks first though, they're free. Try the bitrate around 160 or 180. I, along with others, haven't noticed a jump in quality above 180. You just get bigger files for your computer to choke on. The hack is reliable too, I've filmed 50 or so hours since installing without problems. If you have problem though, you might need faster SD card.
