Here is a video of a Seasoned photojournalist, in this case Dan Kitwood, who has taken the Tizen based Samsung NX1 Smart Camera into the elements with him to put it to the test.

"The NX1 is an innovative camera that, despite being a CSC, is packed full of functions that surpass those of most mid-range DSLRs."

  1. When do we get H.264... as of right now it does not matter how good this camera is, we can't edit the footage in any major NLE. So pics are great I guess but video guys are wondering what the hell samsung is thinking giving us a codec we can't edit with. Really stupid when they advertise all this amazing 4k video but they never mention that the H.265 is not supported by anyone. Get a grip Samsung

    1. Remember when Apple removes their CD-drives? The mob was crying. And now? Well, come on, Jason. Innovations are for pioneers. It is not as difficult to use a converter (e. g. wondershare > prores) until the H.265 updates are coming (soon).

      1. I am going to have to agree with you on the Apple thing... But I think people who don't understand this will be in for a surprise. This is a very early adopter camera for sure and I love the tech. But and I say this with caution, anyone shooting videos for money and need a turn around this makes it tough. I had to do this with the MFX codec in FCP and it was a total pain. I can't wait to get my hands on this camera the image looks amazing... But using the gh4 and being able to shoot 4k and then go edit the footage is great. Maybe I am spoiled.

        1. Maybe its just a "brand-thing".
          I took a lot of GH4-footage to my projects (made by my compagnon), they are good but not excellent.
          I am glad to made own tests to say the NX1 fit better to my EOS-1D C.
          The NX1 is now a great backup-camera for film (and timelapse) and my new #1 for action shots.
          I have absolutely no problem with the workflow. And I am shooting for money.

    2. just because H.265 is new, and thus, "not supported by default" on your favorite editing / viewing software, doesn't mean it's shit.

      actually, if you'd read/view all those reviews, you'd have found out the reason why they chose H265 over H264, that is, no need for special storage hardware but standard SD cards that can at least write in 30 Mbps (recommended). Installing a custom coded (or using a converter for editing) is as simple as using google search.

      1. LOL... I am not saying h.265 is crap. I am saying not having h.264 is a bummer. Special hardware is not required by that you mean special data cards. What your not understanding is when you shoot one hour of footage with the Nx1 it transcode to almost 3 hours. We shot a two day event with three NX1s to test these guys out and it ended up being almost 20 hours for transcoding and the file size was almost 6 or 7 times bigger than the recorded media. So when I say its a bummer maybe thats just us. If you just shooting special shots and not getting a ton of footage then its not a problem. So I should have said event shooters will not be getting this camera on a widespread until the NLE adopts it. This is hands down the best image to ever come out of a stills camera. I have not seen anything compare to this one. So I love the camera, but your having no understanding what it takes to edit 4k after the footage is transcoded is very apparent. And yes after its transcoded you still end up with large 4k files that will need a system that can edit those. 🙂 I love the camera... dont get your fanboy feathers all ruffed up. H.265 is the future, but then again we are not in the future we are in the present which requires tons of transcoding with big files at the end of it. 🙂
