Hi everybody.  I was at CES today and at the Samsung CES booth where they had some NX1 cameras mounted around a photo booth with a couple of models in a living room setting.  I happened to notice that

". . .Particularly interesting is that Samsung will make an SDK available with the firmware update for developers to make their own apps and remote control software for the NX1, which runs from an ope

yes a lot of times you can reach out to companies and express your thoughts on how to improve their product.  You are doing them a huge favor by being out in the field testing them.  Samsung is showin

Yeah, I'm excited for the update as well, but I'm glad to see it isn't out yet, because I'm thinking Samsung is addressing more fixes for the NX1 that many users are experiencing. At least that's my hope!

What do you mean? It's already downloadable from Samsung's site, it was released hours ago.

Isn't it out today? According to the website the firmware is available.

​I haven't seen any videos taken with the new firmware, but since they went though the trouble improving all these things for video, was is so hard to implement a very high bitrate (80Mbit/sec) FHD?

​Not sure, maybe the drop from 40 to 18 (for 30fps) is for when people shoot 120fps. Also good to remember this is h265, so (if I'm not misinformed by wikipedia) you'd double it for the equivalent quality at h264. So 1080 at 40 mbits/s would be ~80 in h264, right?

​Yeah I get that, but since the camera supports downsampling and writting 80mbits/s to the card, why not allow the maximum bitrate for 24p? That would possibly result in a much more gradable image. It looks like they are limited to a maximum ~0.32bits/pixel for some reason.

I tried it - I didn't find it that much different than shooting with contrast all the way down.  I told Samsung that - they said they are on it.  But I haven't hooked it up to my monitor yet.

 

anyway now I have my a7s and the Odyssey 7q+ cranking - I am back in love with the Odyssey 7q+ - i need to do a shootout between it and the NX1.  who wants to help?
