    Definitely a additional stop in the shadows there, Mac.

    Great write up!

    I just got mine the other week and have really enjoyed it so far.

    It's crazy how much camera you get for the money.

    Your judging macroblocking based on a compressed screen grab of a video that was converted from the original source. You can't judge macroblocking from something that has undergone 3 levels of compression.

    It's stuff like this that drives me insane.

    You're right, but my files is in PNG because of this
    But, I assure you that these MACRO blocks are in the original. I have requested and downloaded files from NX1, capture from playback to PNG and see the same... wait macgregor who said.

    H265 after all, what would you expect after such a heavy color correction? ;)
    I think that example is too extreme and under normal circumstances you are not going to see that.
    However, if you want 4K I don't think the NX1 is a good idea. BUT it makes wonderful 1080p, and that´s why I like it. I'll be shooting a project next week. We'll see how it goes.

    P.D.: sorry for my english.
    I did a bunch of tests on the GH4 (on my site as well) and back then I thought it was a little nice camera. That was until I shot a couple projects with it. I HATED it. Hated it, hated it. First, colors don't look good. Second, the body is awful. I've never suffered a worst camera handling experience. It was constant frustration. It made me realize how straightforward D800, 5D or even this NX1 are and how much camera handling can ruin a shoot.

    Ok, I understand that cc is not goin to happen but I see the macroblocking clearly without that post, thats bugged me. If only they have proper HDMI output the this could be bypassed happily, its so frustrating.
