Your ideal NX1 Settings

Recommended Posts

I would like to share my resent settings that I have used couple days (only). What I am looking for with these settings is to reduce the pink/red tone in skin tones that shows sometimes in hands and faces.

Moving the HUE to the right direction helps. I also need to reduce the green color at the same time. There is some problems with some other colors, but I can live with that. At least right now it feels like that. The skin tones have been better now to my eyes. red 1,00, green 0,97, blue 1,00, sat +0, contrast 0, sharpening -4, hue +12, 16-235, normal gamma.

These settings are not fully tested in various conditions, but if anyone has this same issue with skin tones, you may want to try these.

Hi, I´m a young DoP in Asuncion, Paraguay. I have done many tests with the NX1 and have been using it for many commercials and resently for the feature film „Saber Crecer“ (To Grow).

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a6iQ3mQI9CA

This film has been shot entirely on my NX1 (except the drone shots) using the bitrate mod (160 Mbit/s) and the NXL speedbooster by Luca.

Please let me know what you think :)

Nice julian! some nice clean shots there. good luck with the movie!

Note the dialogue of actors in the trailer is very low volume, maybe check that.

Hi guys! New user here from Italy. Next week, after many thoughts, I'm going to have the NX1 and I'm pretty excited. This forum was critical to my final decision and I have to thank you for all the opinions and settings that you've posted through all these years about this amazing camera.

I've just found a short movie from Vimeo filmed with the NX1 and I think it looks great (sadly I don't know the author's settings).

It does look great! Looks like Gamma DR and they probably used FilmConvert in post with some sort of LUT applied as well.

Hi!

I just got the NX1 + 16-50mm F2.0. I have read around 20 pages of this thread. But i can't really get my head around what settings to use.

So what are the best settings/gamma for non to minor color grading(Luts/tweaking curves)? 

 

Thanks

I have updated my settings. Colors are more in balanced now, but I am still experimenting/testing these. My main interest are skin tones so other colors are what they are. I might still try to find my optimal, general usage, straight from the camera settings and post here if find better. Here are some examples of these settings. These settings work best in Daylight whitebalance.

red 0,98, green 0,97, blue 1,00, sat +0, contrast 0, sharpening -6, hue +9, 16-235, normal gamma

Updating hue to +3, because I found that W10 boost red color in it's movieplayer with NX1 HEVC files ??, which I have used. If look the files with Resolve 14 or Vegas 14 or mpc-hc the color are less saturated with red color. Don't know if this changed when I changed GPU from AMD to Nvidia. Or if it has been all the time so.

So if anyone is experimenting with these setting, they are now:

red 0,98, green 0,97, blue 1,00, sat +0, contrast 0, sharpening -6, hue +3, 16-235, normal gamma

Result is less green cast in the picture and hopefully little less pink color in skin tones. Still experimenting...

Hi guys! This is a video I made last August in Thailand. It is almost entirely shot with the Samsung NX1 plus Samsung 16mm, 20mm and Canon 50mm 1.8.
I used a lut from the Vellichor pack (awesome luts).
I'm pretty satisfied with the result. Hope you gonna like it.
