Is the 2.5k worth it for the nx500?

Recommended Posts

I understand that the 2.5k video mode for the nx500 is a reality now via the hack. Are there any reviews or opinions on the benefits of this hack? What does it give you in real world terms beyond what the stock settings provide? less moire? less noise? less skewing? less aliasing? what are the pros and cons? thank you.

Its a great detailed clean image, with the best motion cadence on a more-than-1080p camera.

The problems 1) No flat profile

2) difficult to rig up with viewfinder/moniter because there was no cages made for it, so the small HDMI port is hard to deal with.

As far as caging goes I use this as a universal cage...https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B011NVXP1A/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I can rig my NX-1 + Battery grip, NX-1 without battery grip, and my BMPCC with it

you just have to swap out the vertical rod that costs $15

the stock NX500 screen doesn't show the image? I have to use an external monitor?

Also, do you get the cropped 4k FOV? You'd get full view right?

Full Super 35 FOV. Yes the screen works, but it's hard to see outside and does not tilt.
