  1. Well this has certainly gone off the rails ?

    I only started this as separate thread to raise awareness of the possible advancement for other NX1 owners.  As an owner, anything that potentially enhances the image or adds to the experience, I am all for.

    It is sad we will not know definitively if this was a real development or not.  Perhaps it would be best for Andrew to kill this thread and let any further announcements come through a proper post on the site.



  2. So, this is filed under the NX2 rumors thread...but, if true, I thought this warrants its own thread...

    Im have good news for you: I just shot RAW video with the NX1...RAW VIDEO in 25p - nice workflow with 25 DNGs per second. Just an unbelievable quality (in my eyes).

    Problem: I'm just writing my graduation exam...after that I'll download the footage and describe the methodology. It's quite special but it's great for my Ipurposes. With the 60mm 2.8 at F6 an unbelievable detail and sharpness.

    It's quite exciting...

  3. IF this actually came out, Samsung could offer a Canon / Nikon lens adapter...right out of the gate.  I have friends heavily invested in their lenses that would buy this if they could use some of their existing lenses...

    Unfortunately, I predict that due to Samsung "abandoning" NX system in the past, that IF they released a NX2 in the future it would get less market traction than the NX1 did :-(



    I would say that this wouldn't hold true...Everyone on here likes to argue that the NX1 had so little market share, it seems like the NX2 has nowhere to go but up :)  Additionally, I was drawn to the NX1 for its awesome "future proof" specs...which has somewhat held true.  A NX2 with the specs listed in this thread would get the attention of anyone looking for a new camera (depending on price, of course).

    I also agree with @lucabutera that launching this could put companies like RED on notice that if you want to play in the smartphone arena, we can undercut you here.

    I fall into the "glad I bought it, nothing else is worth trading for it yet" class...and, I'm really just using it to take pics and videos of my family.  It always works, it doesn't lag.

  5. I say we help Samsung out here...in case they are watching this thread.  Let's keep it simple.  Simply say "I'm in" if you'd buy it and, for their own research, what price you would pay?  


    I'm in.  $2500 retail.

    That amount of pixel peeping shows nothing imo. Who would do that in real life.

    I agree.  If I had a client that wanted to pixel peep to that level, I'm probably working with the wrong clients.  As a non-Fuji user, the appeal for me has always been the colors and profiles...

    Cool, go for the deep-end!! Can confirm the X-T20 is a beast


    Here's a 4K frame... Lovely codec and colour... Super detailed.



    Well, it seems almost criminal to put in such a nice frame grab and not mention anything about how you got those awesome colors...Was this with one of the film simulations on?  What lens?  Do tell...I'm thinking of going smaller than my NX1 rig and this is one of the cameras I'm looking into (TX20)...

  8. @tdonovic  Sorry, I have to disagree with your "image quality doesn't matter" line.  

    I have an NX and, from time to time, think maybe I should upgrade or get rid of it.  Everytime I have taken shots with a recent Nikon camera I walk away disappointed (and still the owner of an NX1).  

    Nikon has a reputation for great cameras, whereas, Samsung has a reputation for phones that blow up and overpriced washers and dryers.  Is it too much to ask that the one with the "great camera" reputation actually produce cameras that are great? 

    Lastly...Samsung in their mind, still own 26% of the camera market...since most people just take shots with their smartphones.

    Here's a project I just finished shooting. I tried playing around with some different settings than I've used in the past, and I'm pretty pleased with how the color came out in a lot of the shots. The whole thing was shot on a bitrate hacked NX1, almost entirely in 120p, with the NX-L speedbooster and Rokinon 50mm T1.5 used for most shots, though there are a few shots with the Roki 85 and Sigma 18-35 as well. All the gimbal shots were the NX500 with a Rokinon 12mm on a Zhiyun Crane. 



    Nice colors!

    I've shot tons of stills with it (if people want to see some of those, let me know)

    @Parker  I would love to see some of the stills you shot with the NX-L.  I think, just maybe, it makes the NX1 quite viable as a wedding camera.  Please share any shots you can along with the lens used.

    Also, nice wedding video!

    So, i've decided to make a small teaser for one of the Luts, Greenleaf, its one of my favorite, but also one of the most moody/muted ones, so it may not be to the liking of everyone, but its one of my favorites.

    Let me know what you guys think :



    Looks great, Ricardo!  Can't wait to try them out on my footage.
