  1. I did not use a bitrate hack, but I wan to try that out soon. In the first video, I Gamma DR at Saturation:-3 Sharpness:-3 contrast:-5 Master black:10 luminance range: 0-255. In the second video, I turned sharpness and contrast all the way down, because the NX1 footage is so crazy sharp. I didn't use the log profile. To my knowledge, it turns the image into log after its already recorded, so I don't think it would add leeway for color grading.
  2. Here's my take on the Ursa Mini 4k. It gets a lot of hate in online reviews. It seems that it was a letdown to the people who eagerly awaited its release. Although it has its flaws, I think the fact that it didn’t live up to its expectations has tainted the perception of it. In my opinion, it’s the perfect camera if: You want a more professional camera. (it’s robust, has excellent ergonomics, and can use professional batteries.) You want a quality image (it has a flat picture profile with lot of room for grading in post and its picture noise is closer to film grain than macro blocks) You have lighting. (the picture gets really noisy in low light) You record audio separately. (the audio via xlr is pretty bad, at least in the one I own.) You can’t spend $10,000 on a 4k camera, but $4,000 is doable. For more insights, I did a video review of the camera as well.
  3. Here are two comparison videos with side-by-side evaluations on a number of areas, like low light, slow motion, audio, rolling shutter, and how they key. Part 1: Part 2: In short: Ursa Mini: better overall picture (flatter shooting profile, better color gamut) global shutter, better for green screening Nx1: sharper, less noise in low light, better audio, better slow motion
