Samsung NX1 – Video Test
Amazon Price: N/A (as of August 15, 2018 3:22 pm –
The NX1 is defined by its advanced 28.2MP APS-C, BSI CMOS Sensor. Delivering up to 15 frames per second bursting with sharp detail and intense colors. The large sensor is ideal for creating detailed images and stunning 4k/UHD video.
The Current King of APS-C Interchangeable Lense Cameras.
I’m brand agnostic when it comes to DSLR cameras. I have virtually every “pro” lens that Sony, Canon, Nikon, and Samsung makes. I say that to make the point that a lens collection in one brand isn’t tainting my review towards another. This camera, the Samsung NX1 is handily the best APS-C sensor camera in the market right now. That’s shocking to me, seeing how Samsung is fairly new to the interchangeable lens camera universe. They’ve come a long way from the N30.
Way ahead of its time despite it was abandoned by its own maker.
I am somehow from the old school when film was ruling, but I embraced technology moving into tape, DVD, internal disk and flash memories on my camcorders and cameras. I have used and owned CANON, SONY, NIKON, MINOLTA, etc (as well as windows, apple and linux). So, I am not a “brand” fixed person. I want the job done and have no reason to “represent” one brand over another or defend it like a religion. I cannot understand people making lines to buy a product just because it is of some brand. As most people interested on technology, I need more than a brand or a specification list. I need reviews and independent tests before jumping into some device specially when it is pricey.
Awesome Hybrid Video/Photo Camera – Firmware Updates Made the Difference
When I first bought the camera the most I would have given were 3.5 or 4 stars. However, with the camera’s latest firmware updates this is a powerhouse hybrid video/photo camera. For work we do a fair amount of portrait photography as well as video production. This camera does not disappoint when it comes to still photos. Also, the 4K and UHD video quality is fantastic even with the “sub-par” h.265 codec. We use this camera in conjunction with our Panasonic GH4.
Ridiculously Awesome Camera!
I’ve had this camera for several days now, and it’s ridiculously awesome!! I bought it to shoot video on, and it delivers. It’s auto-focus is pretty darn close to being on the same level as Canon’s 70D (which I’m coming from), and it was only when using the 45mm f1.8 that the AF system did a little “hunting” before locking. I found if you set the video quality to “pro”, there’s very little, if any, aliasing or moire. Also, if you shoot in GammaDR (the camera doesn’t have a LOG setting), and set the Luminance Level to 16-235 (the default is 0-255, which crushes blacks), you get a lot of dynamic range, and a lot of detail in the highlights and shadows to work with in post. There’s also a 3rd party LOG you can purchase which converts the file to a flat Canon-like LOG that’s helpful for grading.
Samsung NX1- The Hybrid We Have Been Waiting For!
are great. I bought the Samsung NX1 about 3 months …
First, a disclaimer: I am not a professional photographer, not do I know all the lingo and technical details about photography. However, I have watched numerous online training videos on photography, and I subscribe to Popular Photography – I say this not to brag but to say that I know at least a little about cameras. My previous experience has been with Canon cameras which, in my non-professional opinion, are great. I bought the Samsung NX1 about 3 months ago after reading the mostly glowing reports (though, admittedly, a few reviews are thumbs down). I have used this camera on numerous occasions including outdoors (in my backyard), indoors (birthdays, weddings, just walking around the neighborhood, and I am absolutely pleased with the results. The best thing about it is the absolute ease of controlling the camera. The touch screen on the Live View is so easy to make necessary adjustments, whether it is aperture, shutter speed, white balance, or ISO, that it makes photography a joy, not an exercise in frustration. The EVF (electronic viewfinder) makes it super easy to compose shots. The Menu and Smart Screen are intuitive and easy to learn. The camera is solid and compact due to being a mirrorless camera. Admittedly, there is a dearth of quality lenses at this point, but the kit lens that comes with it (16-50mm) has been superb. Additionally, this camera is great at transferring pics through WiFi and NFC. I am very happy with this camera – I used it last night to take some awesome 4th of July fireworks pics that I hope to print. Canon and Nikon are great cameras, but I am think this camera is the definitely what the future looks like.
Amazing value for video shooters
I’ve shot enough gigs with the NX1 to have a good feel for it, and I’m impressed. (I use it for video – haven’t taken a single still). This thing is years ahead of any video camera in the same price range. The mirrorless design and short flange distance means you can stick all kinds of vintage glass on it. The sensor is incredibly detailed and capable of a very film-like look. And putting 4K footage on a 1080 timeline gives me a huge amount of reframing control, which is huge for doing single camera interviews. The little kit lens is amazing for the money and I can use the AF and OIS to get nice steadicam-style shots; but it’s at its best with vintage-ey lenses (I primarily use Nikkor primes and zooms with aperture rings). Lenses I’d hesitate to shoot with wide-open, at F2.8 or 1.8, look amazing with this sensor (though I’m generally around F4). The killer EVF and OLED screen and adjustable focus peaking mean I can often skip the loupes and monitors I usually have on hand. And the audio is very good if you have a pro preamp (the camera-out from a recorder is your best bet – you’ll have a safety track – but I’ve used the NX audio often that way without having to synch. I’ve shot available light up to 2000 iso, and when downscaled to 1080, I haven’t needed NR. The dynamic range profile is great and about as flat as one would want to go for 8-bit footage, and gives you some room to bring the blacks back up and kill more noise.
After reading many reviews and having been a die-hard Nikon fan I decided to give this camera a shot (no pun intended). I am not a professional photographer but I’ve been using digital cameras since their evolution in the late 90s progressing from Nikon’s first offerings to the D200 and then the D300. I was considering the new D750 but the Samsung NX1 and its technology was very Intriguing. The long and short of it is that I’m blown away by the images this camera produces. I’m so used to “tweaking” the images before publishing in whatever venue and, frankly, I have to look long and hard for an image that needs any tweaking. The metering of the fill flash is amazing. You can blast someone in the face with either the built in flash or the Samsung SEF580, which I purchased with the camera, and the image is incredible – not blown out. I’m used to carefully bouncing the flash to get a good image (which I’ll still do) but for a short and sweet quick-pic, it’s not necessary. The app (I use the Android version) is also really functional – does many things but I particularly like quickly linking the camera to my Samsung Note 4 and having images (quickly) upload to the phone – which, then automatically upload to Dropbox – and then automatically download to my computer(s). Talk about instant backup! The camera itself and the 16mm-50mm lens that came with the camera both are excellent quality. There are some aspects of its feel that I like better than even the Nikon D300 that I was using. Overall the bottom line is I TRUST this camera to get good images in almost any situation. In case you haven’t figured it out by now – I’d recommend this camera. Attached is a quickly taken image at the New Orleans 2015 Jazz Fest – Accura Stage.
Really a nice camera
I was thinking I wanted to go smaller in size and I did with some other cameras. However, I realized that it did not make me take it with me any more than I already did and that I missed the feel and options of the larger size. After looking at the typical big name players again, I started reading about this and ended up getting it. I had read about low light focus issues etc, but also read how quickly Samsung was putting out firmware updates to correct issues. That was enough for me to get it. I really did not have many issues with low light shots. Sure, there was some hunting and not able to focus moments, but nothing crazy. However, Samsung put out another firmware which really fixed a lot of the minor focus issues I had. Now it seldom hunts and is pretty quick in even darker conditions.
The NX1 is my personal favorite camera for portrait photography and 4K video production
The NX1 is my personal favorite camera for portrait photography and 4K video production. Increasing the video bitrate only makes the detail better and reduces moire. I have the 10 f3.5 fisheye, 30 f2.0, 45 f1.8, 12 f2.0 (Rokinon manual), 16-50S f2.0-2.8, 50-150S f2.8 and 50-200 III. I also have the Samsung pro flash, various adapters and Nikkor/Tokina 35mm manual lenses. The NX1 still competes well in 2017 even though it was released in 2014. Samsung cameras are amazing.
