Minor update, still doing what Im doing, still digging and documenting what changes Im finding in the firmware, have started to explore with telnet and the camera. Its looking good. Have a few ideas o

Hallo NX World, the NX Booster it's coming soon! This is the Prototype Mark II.  Marco do not worry, if I do not post my progress, is because I have a lot of work in my private life. Next week I

Here is a quick video showing the NX1 and NX500 SD Card Hack for Focus Buttons. This program allows you to record up to 6 focal points, these are stored on the SD card and will work after a camer

Am looking to sell my NX500, so I thought someone on here might be interested in a lightly used NX500 to use toward the hack. I could sell just the body, or for a little more I'll throw in some vintage lenses and adapters... I have a bunch, so if you're interested in the body plus lenses let me know and I will give you a list of the lenses I have.

Pictures available upon request.

Long time lurker, first time poster, NX500 owner. First off, thanks to the folks that know what they are doing. Y'all are really doing all of us a huge service, and it is greatly appreciated.

I just tried Vasile's record limit trick with some initially disappointing results. I'm hoping that these are due to my SD card. I don't want this to come across as complaining, just what I've observed with my attempt.

NX500 w/ Transcend 32GB SDHC Class 10 UHS-1 600x card (this one)

I followed Vasile's directions. No problems there. When I hit record on any of the settings it initially will give a large number for total record time (for about a second) and then the number suddenly changes to a much lower value. Here are my results with different "Movie Quality" settings:

  • FHD 24P - Quality Pro - At beginning record time reads "00:00/35791394:0" then one second goes by and it reads "00:01/09:30"
  • FHD 24P - Quality HQ - Again, at beginning record time reads "00:00/35791394:0" then one second goes by and it reads "00:01/22:43"
  • FHD 24P - Quality Normal - Again, at beginning record time reads "00:00/35791394:0" then one second goes by and it reads "00:01/43:37"

The results for FHD 30P are exactly the same, and FHD 60P predictably produces lower total record times and also does the tease with the higher number appearing for the first second of recording. Also, I did let the record run a number of times and it did indeed stop recording at the 9:30, 22:43, and 43:37 marks.

Is anyone else having similar results?

By the way, I'd like to ask you all to NOT name the bitrate and let everyone download the file if they want to know it.

It would be an interesting thing to see how long you can keep it under wraps and only discuss "around it" but without naming it explicitly.

I have no way to enforce this [oops, I just realized I do :-) and you know it too] but I do ask you to play by this rule, at least until I am back.

 

Sweet Jesus and Lord in Heaven, I wonder what happens when you do GammaDR with that stuff, because I tried screw around with the clip in post and imao the range, the range! 

I hope there is a way to use the MJPEG codec for 2160p as well in high bitrates, that would be sweet.

 Can't wait to try this myself. I have the UHS-II card if I can give it a go for testing.

Oh. My. God. 
You did it! :o

Looks so awesome!!

Premiere doesn´t like this clip  :grin:

@amanieux brings up an interesting question: If the 2560*1440 is downsampled from the entire sensor, shouldn't it take less work for the proessor do downsample to 4k instead? In which case, full sensor 4k may be possible. Otherwise, if 2560*1440 is lineskipping, is there any moire? Is there a way to lineskip 4k on the entire sensor?

YESSS! Incredible!  

I am also surprise that playback is realtime in full resolution in Premiere (it was choppy but I had to move the file to SSD, then it was fine). (i7 3,2Ghz, SSD, Nvidia GTX960 with h265 support). 

I think it is not against Vasile's rules - here are just 2 images - default and graded. The shadows noise is very usable - my opinion: it is not fine noise, but look at that - default was completely black in shadows!

Just wanted to pop in and say I got the NX1 because of this thread and I might just pick up the NX500 as well.

Amazing job from everyone here! Also, Vasile, took a look at the clip and that bit-rate is simply amazing, given it being hevc.

Will throw teh monies at this. Thanks

Did a similar test. Ridiculously over and under exposed. I'm astounded. Given the lighting source I'm guessing we are looking at 800 iso or higher.
