Samsung has pulled out the German market with the Samsung NX1 camera for lack of adoption it seems or a big marketing failure. Will other markets be impacted in the future? It is quite a capable camera with 4k video and 120fps Full HD recording which currently sits in #11 in our Camera Guide for slow motion on a budget. While the line may continue in the future those prospects have become more doubtful in recent days with the announcement. The good news is that the camera may be heavily discounted by years end getting you a great bang for your buck with pretty respectable slow motion capabilities for a mirror-less camera.
Flicker is the “F” word of the slow motion video world. It can ruin shots or make them distracting enough to fail in conveying the message to the viewer. It is hard to detect while recording and even with tools to minimize it on set it can still show up later as faint throbbing light.
There are however a few solutions that can take care of the flicker of a vast majority of affected shots after the recording has been made. There is no do it all Swiss army knife for fixing flicker on a shot; no real 100% foolproof plugin or method to get rid of it exists. However a few solutions come very close and that means great news for people on an inexpensive light budget.
Ever since I got into digital imaging at the end of the 1990s I was very interested in Hi Speed Video Imaging. Over the years I have seen the price of these digital wonders go down in price considerably and are now close to what you would call affordable for the enthusiast.
I have produced a few footage videos for my stock videography work over the years with slow motion/hi speed cameras but have never been able to use, rent or own a truly professional hi speed camera.
