Samsung NX500?

Recommended Posts

EOSHD Pro Color for Sony cameras EOSHD Pro LOG for Sony CamerasEOSHD C-LOG and Film Profiles for All Canon DSLRs

​why? 

​Because there are those jobs that I just don't need a 4K master, and the added resolution of 2.5, the little bit of reframe of 2.5, the faster transcode from H.265 with 2.5, that's why!

yes nx1 is much better in low light than the lx100, even though they have same photosite area (better bsi technology and noise is reduced by scaling down the croped 23,6Mpix down to 8,8mpix, the lx100 is just a 8,8mpix crop)  : same night scene iso 800 (already too much noise for the lx100)

nx1 (+samyang 24mm f1.5) :  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4gdrFX2oFDw 

guess who wins :)

i am in also to buy nx500 but i'll wait to see samples first because samsung should in all logic limit video quality on purpose to avoid stepping on the toes of the nx1

warning: 800 is the sweet spot for nx1 above that it falls appart and 3200 is terribly bad for a unknown reason 

 

 

​Thanks, that was exactly the kind of footage that I was looking for. :)

is somebody knowing the allocation of the six contacts
around the flash triggering one in the hot shoe of the nx500 ?  (see pict)

Since there is no 3.5mm jack audio input nor headphone output on this camera,
am I wrong thinking there is a chance analog audio signals can be transmitted
through these contacts?

I cannot confirm it works with nx1/nx500, but I would guess so.

 

I remembered this mic from the "age" of older nx models. I've been a nx user since 2011 so I guess I know "almost" everything about this system :-) 

 

But to be sure that this mic works with the latest models, one should get it and test.

​Yes that is it !Which means we can easily wire in the output of a zoom H2 or H4n to add a
professionnal sound to the images.
Thanks Marco.
 

 

​No mic input, just audio monitoring on this unit.

By the way, someone knows if a EVF will be available for the NX500, the NX20 has one, a optional one, so i guess that this could done, right? because this camera is killing me but no EVF is a no-no to me.

All the "xxx" nx cameras never had an evf option, with the exception of nx100 (the first of its kind). But nx100 had an additional plug for the evf.

 

Nx500 has no plug, so I'll bet on "no evf for it".

​The ED-EM10 being no longer available, I am now considering to make of a small printed circuit
to enter my HiQ external audio signals.

Do you have the pin allocation, and ideally the electronic schematics of the hot shoe
interface of the NX series?
