  1. Hi! Sorry for posting here if it's wrong section. Travelling with my NX1 and the S lenses. After a medium rain (probably) the first real rain for this NX1 + 16-50 S lens I noticed that the EVF is white when I was switched Bluetooth on to transfer the jpegs. First it looked like a old tv set with grain amd then went white (low white whem in lcd mode and high when switch to EVF mode). In the rain I used the built in flash but first noticed that the flash didn't fire. Though it had to do with electronic shutter. Chronology: 1. Going out in the rain. No lens change during being outside. 2. Getting message on screen (Electronic shutter available). ???!!!! (Have had El. Shutter on since I've had the camera but never seen the message). 3. Tried to use integrated flash. First nothing happened. Switched "Electronic shutter" off. The the flash worked. Took some images and did some video while out. 4. Got home with camera after 50 minutes. Left it a bit to dry on a plastic "sheep skin". 5. Turned it on to use Bluetooth to transfer images and a video. Noticed after turning on bluetooth via the lcd that the EVF is shining white. Taking picture with the lcd works however. Have detached the battery grip, lens and hve put the camera upside down with the integrated flash open to dry just in case. Anyone experience something similar? Would be hard if the EVF is broken. Never had anything similar happen before. The NX1 is supposed to be weatherproof right? (There is a commercial with it and the 16-50 S lens in a faucet under the tap. And I don't remember anywhere saying to not to open/use the flash in rain.) And this wasn't any special rain. Far from a monsoon. Kind Regards. Teheimar.
  2. Well, for me Samsung works quite fine. However a zoom or a S-lens might be nice as well. I have Nikon and Sony but can't see me buying more of that stuff (except for Nikon V3 perhaps). Btw, this might sound a bit controversial, but wouldn't buying a new screen with 10-bit quantum dots or better be actually a better investment than new camera gear in some sense? Especially if one uses RAW format for photography since the RAW-image is 14-bits? I have no idea how it would be for video thought.
  3. Hi! For various reasons I'd like to try more video with my NX1 (usually I'm photo only) and would like to ask for some advice regarding two things 1) prefereably cheap cine or non-cine lens that is - Manual focus, - adaptable to the NX1 mount, - with good separation (bokeh is a bonus) - somewhere between 30-40 mm FF equivalent. - fast and still precise focusing - and not overly long (as in protroding ) to keep the whole setup fairly compact. It's OK if it's big, short and wide as long as the MF is smooth and easy to use and doesn't require alot of fiddling. For comparison I really like how the NX 30 mm 1:2 works in MF mode. It feels a bit rangefinder style. Compared with the NX 20 mm which one has to turn around several times just to get somewhere. Somehow I've focused on vintage russian lenses (learned photography on a old Zenith, those where the days), as well as old "zebra style lenses" because of both looks and colours, but I'm open to suggestions. I do realize that in some sense it would be easy just to get a usual NX 20-50 mm ED II but then you get the samsung colour look and I'd like to control the focus myself. I've looked at Russian KMZ quartz lenses, (google images) but they are Super8 so they have a far too small image circle, and I'm not sure about the adapters. 2) really compact stereo microphone (mostly forward focused) that doesn't take up too much place mounted on the flash-shoe and works good with the NX1. (There are tons of recommendations in general for DSRL etc, but I'm looking specifically for the NX1). Cheers /Teheimar.
  4. Count me in. Since I'm not a videographer I'd like to see some improvement on the stills side (but like the video suggestions too). Have a couple of suggestions for stills, but will list them later. have to test at least the 45 mm, 20 and 16-50 S lens first.
  5. Wow. Looks good. Honestly, for like more casual non-pro use the colours seem to look good. Did you use any specific sharpness tweaks?
