  • Created discussions 16-50s on NX500?
    Anyone using the new 16-50s f2-f2.8 on the NX500.  I have a chance to buy a used 16-50s at a reasonable price.  I have the 16, 30, & 45 primes.  My present main zoom is the 20-50mm. If you have ...
  • In bright sun (live in central coast of California), I find the LCD near useless unassisted.  It is almost impossible to frame and forget seeing settings. I use a Clearviewer and my hand to block ...
  • I only shoot stills.  I am seeing the same thing with my 16-50mm -- the edges are soft at any aperture.  My 20-50mm is generally sharp across the frame.  In fact, it is fairly close to my 30mm ...
  • I am interested in overall views of these two lenses overall sharpness center and edges, best f stops to use, and bokeh.  I now that 16mm is much wider than 20mm but in same focal length of 20 to ...
  • I asked him about support for the NX500.  He said they will be coming very soon. I loved them on my m43 gear and Nikon Df.  They can do a really nice job on flesh tones.
  • Last night, Iridient Developer was updated with support the NX500. I only got a short time to try it out on my standard test set of landscape and building detail shots with my 30mm and 45mm.  Very ...
  • Many thanks for providing the download links for these applications.  I could not get i-launcher to work on my Windows 8.1 machine from the connected NX500.  Now thanks to you, I can enjoy my NX500. ...
  • Help Please.  I need an executable download link for the Samsung DNG Converter for Windows 8.1.  I cannot get i-launcher to launch from the USB connected NX500 so I cannot get the DNG converter. ...
  • Which Hoodman did you get. -- Hank K Nikon Df, Samsung NX500, Olympus EM1, Em5ii, and Nikon Coolpix A
  • In bright sun or bright shade, the NX500 screen is almost impossible to see and do composition work. I have the LCD set to maximum brightness. From what I was reading, I was hoping that the NX500 ...
  • Replied in Download worked!
    Thanks much! The downloaded .exe file worked. The images are impressive even with Silkypix.  I need to try the kit lens a bit more.  I know the 16mm and 30mm work nicely.  And I need to try some ...
  • No CD. i looked in box several times.  I did get the Samsung RAW converter going on my MacBook Pro.  Even with Silkypix the RAW files provide an impressive amount of detail with my 30mm and 16mm ...
  • I cannot get i-launcher to work with my Windows 8 machine so I cannot get the Samsung apps like the RAW converter for  Windows 8.   I connected my NX500 to my MacBook Pro and i-launcher started ...
  • Thank you for suggesting the firmware download but both the NX1 and NX500 download sites are coming back as unreachable.  Maybe they are doing maintenance at night.  Given the size of these ...
  • How do I get i-launcher.
  • Created discussions Help NX500 RAW developer
    I got my NX500 but cannot find a RAW developer for it. I went to the Silkypix website but it only lists support for NX1.  Does anyone know how to get a beta version or something Silkypix that will ...
  • Replied in Fujifilm X30
    Of all the cameras I have owned, I liked shooting with the X30 the best.  The camera just felt right, the EVF was outstanding, and the lens very sharp.  I sold it because of the sensor and having ...
  • I ordered one from Amazon US.  Hope to have it tomorrow, Friday.  It has not yet shipped but should later today.  I hope the screen is bright enough in the sun.  I have several NX lenses and my ...
  • Now that Iridient Developer supports the EM5II High Res files, I ran my (non-professional) standard landscape test on three of my lenses. At High Res, I compared the Panasonic 42.5 f1.2, the Oly ...
  • Markymark101, Best summary I have read.  I have a similar set of primes and the 12-40mm.  And I end up in the same situation you described.  The m43 system becomes heavy and large with the 12-40. ...
