Here is a link from Metabones site. Metabones® It says NX will not be supported.
Specifically, they exclude a speed booster, but probably a smart adapter is possible.

Testing the Samsung NX 60mm macro lens.


Focus peaking works superbly to get focus spot on and the focus mechanism is silent.

Re: Samsung NX1: H.265 and 4k

How's the audio for this camera?

I noticed in the specs, that it's stated as:

For H.265 = AAC (MP4)

For AVI = LPCM


I wonder why Samsung didn't just use LPCM for both instead of using the lower quality AAC for H.265 recordings.

Isn't LPCM usually higher in bit rate and quality than AAC?

Re: Samsung NX1: H.265 and 4k

Has anyone shot much in 1080p? I noticing some gnarly issues in high-detail areas. The 1080p is already about as soft as the 6D but then there are these crazy artifacts. Perhaps some sort of noise reduction? There are "smudges" all over the image at times. It particularly is evident around hair and skin-tones.

Re: Samsung NX1: H.265 and 4k

I'd much rather shoot in 4K and down-rez to HD. Much better results.

Re: Samsung NX1: H.265 and 4k

Yeah the 4K looks great. I need me my 60p though.

Re: Samsung NX1: H.265 and 4k

If your TV has a frame doubler (most TVs of recent vintage do), engaging it can make 30p look very similar to 60p.

I do just that with my 1080p plasma and my down-rez'd 4K>HD looks very smooth.

I just got back from BB where they had just mounted the new 65" UHD OLED TV. I brought a couple of 4K projects from the NX1 and it looked superb...including the motion.

Yes, you have to shoot with an awareness of 30p. But done correctly, you should not have any significant issues.
