very good resolution and framing, but the image is a bit "dull" on my monitor and TV

The cinematographer prefers a flatter grade. He also lets darkness be dark, which I personally appreciate, as long as you can still read the frame.

hi guys, thanks for the appreciations. The settings are pretty step forward. Normal profile pic, sharpness -7, contrast -1 and master blacks around +8.  And grading was done in Final Cut Pro using its newest grading tool, manual corrected, no LUT used. That's about it.

What saturation level did you use?

I'm seeing an emerging pattern here as it concerns the NX1 and the best looking footage I've seen this camera produce and that pattern is subtle changes to the camera's default settings.

Although, I do turn my sharpness all the way to -10 and reccomend that if you want to get a softer, less digital look and help reduce aliasing and morie. But turn it to -8 when shooting 1080. 

The camera is not perfect and in the wrong hands and Youtube and Vimeo's compression can look like utter crap.

It has a "thin" look (as does the GH5) which is hard to describe in words, and I've been experimenting with ways to "deepen" the character of the image. I think some of this is the difference between using stills lens' and proper cine lens'.

Shaky footage in 4k does not compliment this camera as it's rolling shutter is pretty pronounced, even vertically. As my eye gets more acclimated to the character of this camera the more I see how bad it is. Global shutter is the way to go in this department.  

A lot of ppl rag on the camera's DR, but I challenge them to shoot high contrast scenes with any camera costing under $4,000 not see simlar issues. That being said, if you take control of your lighting, blown out highlights can be totally avoided. Here's a good video demonstrating those general techniques:

Very interesting. Of course if you haven't got a latitude of many stops in video, you need to use lights in such situations.

The great thing is that, in still pictures, now you can get these results even w/o a fill in flash, thanks to the greatness of BSI sensor by samsung.
