I also shoot 1/60th shutter with auto aperture/gain, and find it necessary in almost all situations to lower EV using the dial. The Panasonic cameras are like that too. For some reason the Samsung NX...

I agree with your comments (including the audio). This camera is for someone else, but in the meantime it is clear more work is needed to understand how to use it best.

No, there is nothing wrong with the AF algorithm; in fact you have amazing control over that algorithm.

You have to be careful about what you are seeing regarding focusing: the dof appears to be very shallow due to the crop, and the lens focuses on specific things. So in the second clip, the focus is...

First, on DPReview there is now a third person who has no OIS with the III lens on his NX1 (and I have encouraged him to call support).

So, is the NX500 4K worse than the NX1 4K?

Test 1: Shot side by side to get the same approximate pov. Both lenses set so the ISO was the same (up to) 800 and at the same f-stop. Both used the same lens (NX 16-50mm PZ). The NX1 was closer in...

One more limitation

The maximum length of a clip for 4K video is 15 minutes. This limit does not exist for the NX1 (it is the regular 30 minutes). This suggests that overheating is an issue with small cameras shooting...
