I have updated the second nx300, and verified they both have issues with auto backup feature.

thanks

this is bad. do you think the new firmware makes the camera less responsive, also?

p.s.: I see there is now a lens firmware also for the 85mm lens!

the V1.10 for 85mm had been released with the NX20 as far as I am aware so maybe they just added it to the NX300 to capture the need.

EDIT: it seems that Samsung had addressed one issue from the past that it was hard to find the lensware and now added the last lensware released of the 30 and the 85 to all current NX models

They used to always hide the lens firmwares on whatever camera it was released with, so they can be hard to find.  There are some on NX10, NX20, NX300 pages, all different.  Maybe they are trying to make them more visible.

I think it might have been you that pointed that out to me?  Anyway, I am glad I know about it now, not sure if it made a difference or not for how I shoot.

It seems to be an old firmware released back in Sept 2012. Its got a proper label now so it is actually possible to find it. People were complaining that it is very difficult to find any lens update unless you know exactly where to look for it. Maybe Samsung started to listen what users are saying on this forum? 

haha, he forum loads very slowly for me atm

They have now implemented manual iso control in manual mode, so everything there is full manual control - however, they still only allow up to ISO3200, which I hope they will allow us to increase. Once you go over 3200 it goes back to auto (and not sure if it sticks at 3200 or adjusts as it sees fit)

In shutter/aperture priority and program ae you still only get auto ISO, but as they have fixed this in one place, we can hope they will fix it in others.

More important to me, and not sure how they will address it, is to have some means of getting a 16:9 preview of what is going to be recorded before hitting record button!

There is one person from samsung reading this forum. You should contact him and let him know the remining bugs.

I think that 16:9 preview is fundamental, and so is selectable iso in every mode.

P.s. has af speed improved with this fw?

I did not have very much time to play with it yet since updating, but it generally seemed faster, apart from those occasions where it just wouldn't focus at all - these occasions I sometimes find odd, as there seemed to be what should be enough contrast to get a lock

It would be good to know when the camera uses phase detection as opposed to contrast detection.

What is your problem that you are constantly spouting rubbish on here?

Really, in the cases where you have nothing constructive to add, why not just be quiet?

some people search for update 1.09, 2.11, 3.14159, 3.99, don't know what it makes - and forget to make photos.

It's senseless like crying for 128.000 or 256.000.000 iso or saying: 8 mpixel are enough!

There is an actual league for this sort of thing, its tiered into three.

Group 1 is people who just take pictures and dont ever post on the internet. Theyre the best.

Group 2 is people who take pictures and post on internet sites about firmware updates and about cameras.

Group 3, and bottom of the pile, is people who make posts on internet sites ridiculing people in group 2 for not being in group 1.

Hi,

Just got my new NX300 and it has firmware version 1.0. I went to the Samsung site and downloaded a massive 240MB firmware update file and the lens update to. They're both just .bin files. Can someone explain how to actually get the new firmware onto the camera?

Thanks,
