  1. So I guess no IBIS? Those Leica MTF lens look nice. Especially the 12-60 or even the 50-200. just wish they were constant aperture. I wonder if they are going to be focus by wire?
  2. I Know everyone likes to argue that resolution doesn't matter and 1080p is fine but IMO I think resolution will date your footage way more than color bit depth so lean towards resolution over bit depth. It also might be worth shooting 60p. IMO I think we will see a big shift to 60p and away from 24/25/30p but this is just my opinion that has a lot to do with me personally liking the look of 60p
  3. Red cameras shoot raw so its likely the other way around meaning red footage it made to look like NX1. A professional colorist could probably make red raw footage look like any camera and fool almost anyone.
  4. Where did you hear that the NX1 looks similar to RED cameras. I am not saying it isn't true I have just not hear this.
  5. So up until this point I have been trans-coding all my NX1 footage with RMMC to ProRes LT however I recently picked up a GTX 960 4GB on sale that has a HEVC hardware decoder. Using MPC-HC with hardware decoding turned on the HEVC footage plays back perfectly at full resolution (4k). However in premiere pro CC it still drops a significant amount of frames even at 1/4 resolution and even before I add it to a timeline. Is there any settings I need to configure in premiere to turn on the GTX 960 HEVC decoder or for improve the playback engine to HEVC? EDIT: I did check and CUDA support is turned on.
  6. I have a question for you guys. What do you think effect the image of a camera the most? The sensor The codec The processor Other
  7. I am confused as to what exactly you guys are trying to do? Are you trying to get the camera to dump the RAW sensor data out the HDMI port? I dont know how external recorders work but I am sure it would have no idea what its looking at meaning every camera's RAW output would look different.
  8. I have always respected what the Northrup's do and say because the actually do tests and show their results. I am not saying that I don't want 10 bit 4:2:2 I think we need it but mostly because I see it as a steping stone to RAW witch IMO is the ultimate end goal never mind resolution or high frame rates.
  9. As far as I know there is no fan inside the NX1 https://www.ifixit.com/Device/Samsung_NX1 There is also another PDF with high res photos of the disassembled NX1 floating around somewhere(I cannot find it right now) and that also doesnt show any fans. Also the body is weather sealed so it does not have any vents and a fan without vents is pretty much useless. I am not sure what noise you are hearing my NX1 is completely silent.
  10. It has been 2 months on git hub. Also I thought He said he was going to be back in august.
  11. Ok, so assuming all these rumors are true along with the usual bump in ISO and DR performance to be expect from one generation to the next (1/2 stop at most). Do you think it would be a better camera for video than the a7sii? And if so, what rumored feature would have to be absent for the a7sii to beat it. Also for simplicity sake lets leave price and the overheating issues of the sony out of this comparison.
  12. My guess he has moved onto other projects. Its a shame as I fee like he could have squeezed more out of these fantastic cameras. Oh well I am happy with where things are at.
  13. Personally I don't have any issue with using H.265 or H.264. I have an NX1 and love the image it gives. The thing that has always bothered me is the fact that I film with HEVC and usually deliver in H.264 witch is theoretically less compression and it "should" be the other way around.
  14. "HEVC decode designed to meet 4kp60 real-time (RT) at up to 120 Mbps" Is it just me or does this seam way too low bit rate for 60p?
  15. If all these rumors are true and the GH5 is going to ship early 2017 that would put it as the number 1 contender for my planned upgrade in about 6-8 months. My only worry is what the high ISO is going to be like.
  16. What the current status of Magic Lantern RAW 14 bit? Any change they will unlock 4k RAW on the mkIV?
  17. You are just getting to that point when your camera is no longer the hot young thing it used to be and you are starting to lust after those younger bodies This only ever applies to camera bodies and not anything else lol.
  18. Lets not forget the NX1 is almost two years old now. compariing it against the a6300 is not a fair comarison
  19. I personally think what ever is happening is happening inside the HEVC encoder. Has anyone tested the ISO of MJPEG on the NX1 and compared it to HEVC?
  20. That's good to know. Tho I have to admit, I am 100% happy with where things are at right now and even if no more improvements ever come out for the NX1 I would be completely fine. I was really happy with the NX1 w/o any hacks so that was just a bonus anyways.
  21. I am really interested in this as well. How are you making them? Any pictures of the fabrication process would be nice to see as well Keep up the good work.
  22. I do not think so. I do not own an NX500 so take this with a grain a salt tho I am pretty sure this was never unlocked. What ever happend to @vasile? I guess he got his hack to the level he was happy with then moved onto another project?
