  1. Those are great $1300+ ideas for the future, to be sure. All I need for now, though, would be for the camera to simply automatically start a new clip after the 30-minute is reached. Magic Lantern allows Canon DSLRs to do something similar- it would be awfully useful if we had the equivalent for the NX1.
  2. I'm shooting a 70-minute long live performance in 4k during which I won't be able to operate the camera. Is there anyway to make the NX1 start a new clip after reaching its 30 minute clip limit? Are there any external recorders on the market now that might provide a workaround? It seems the only other option for this scenario is to rent or buy a GH4, which our production doesn't have the budget to do. Thanks! J
  3. Yep- that's an insane "feature." Who in the hell is making these decisions and how did s/he get that job? Thanks for for bringing up this issue, OP. I discovered it while on a shoot last week with my 30mm/2, and wasn't able to find any settings to fix it. That's the last Samsing lens I'll buy without an AF switch.
  4. Sure. These are straight out of camera - compressed to jpg from RAW. The vignette in the first image is from the EF-NX iris adapter - it was stopped down about halfway through the iris's range.
  5. Sigma 18-35 on the NX1 with Fotodiox iris ring EF dumb adapter, which doesn't work very well with EF-S mount lenses- too much vignetting past the first few stops.
  6. Very good to know. I've been contemplating getting the 16-50 PZ in case I absolutely have to have autofocus. BTW- I have the EF-S mount Tokina 11-16 mk2. Works beautifully on the NX1 because it's decently sharp wide open. However, I like the idea mentioned previously in this thread of using 3rd party F mount lenses with the NX-Nikon G adapter so that I could have aperture control. I'll probably sell my EF mount Sigma and Tokina and get the F mount versions. Can anyone confirm that this config works well? It would be a game changer if it did.
  7. FYI: I did some comparisons between the 16-50 S and my dumb-adapted EF-S mount Sigma 18-35 f1.8 on the NX1. Sharpness, resolution, and color rendering were noticeably superior on the Sigma, which also had better build quality and zoom ring action. I returned the 16-50 S and am currently using a manual focus-only setup until Sigma or another solid 3rd party (hopefully) begins to make autofocus lenses for NX. I upgraded from Canon as well- there have been lots of tricky little workflow things to solve in making the transition.
  8. Someone on the DPReview forum was having issues with the 16-50 PZ switching back to autofocus. I'm not sure if it was fixed in FW 1.30 or not.
