Samsung’s flagship camera, the NX1, has had its firmware updated to version 1.3, bringing a collection of new enhancements and abilities. When introduced, the NX1 was poised against Sony’s A7s as both units brought to market 4K video recording. However, the Samsung NX1 was capable of recording UHD video without the need for an external recorder. Samsung’s latest enhancements focus on largely adding additional features for movie recording while also improving the still photography experience.
For the budding cinematographers out there, the most recent addition to the NX1 includes a new “1920×1080 (120)” mode within the movie size menu, automatic on/off control for the microphone, histogram and level displays during recording, and a new manual focus responsiveness mode.
