New EOSHD setup guide gives Samsung NX1 LOG capability and more


I have just released a Setup Guide for the Samsung NX1. This guide makes the camera compatible with a range of LUTs so you can more easily apply stylistic moods to 4K footage in post.

Along with the LOG conversion workflow, the guide explains the best settings for the NX1 and what you must know before using it for video work.

Shooting with the Samsung NX500 – a pocket 4K cinema camera

This article is the first in a series. Stay tuned for more NX500 coverage on EOSHD.

I am currently shooting with what I think might just be the world’s most affordable interchangeable lens 4K camera.

The Samsung NX500 in my hands is the final retail camera not a pre-production model. It’s running the final firmware V1.0 as well and shoots 4K!

The Canon C300 (currently reduced to $11,500) was the $15,000 stalwart of the professional videographer, only recently did it have a compelling rival – the Sony FS7.

The Samsung NX1 is essentially a cutting edge 4K Super 35mm sensor in a mirrorless camera, recently given a video oriented firmware update which improves dynamic range and the available image profiles.

I was curious to see how the images from these cameras compared and I put my Canon 1D C into the mix as well.

The NX500 has been announced and it features the same sensor and 4K codec as the NX1, but for half the price.

If the NX500’s image performs the same as the NX1 then this will be the best overall video quality you can get for the price.

The light in Berlin is dreary during winter, so I took the NX1 off for a break in the Portuguese city of Lisbon last week. This place has the best weather in Europe and the best light. A magical place.

It gave me a perfect chance to get under the skin of the NX1 – and see just what it can do in the real world.
