Timur Haracic, where your favourite Disat lens has gone, do you perhaps know?

Good news!

So if I am obliged to bring an equipment much more heavy to attempt to mitigate the camera vibrations produced during shooting, I am to do something that would like not to do anymore, after so many years of mishaps and ruined pictures under some conditions.
The technology allows it, finally!

Cameras as Sony A7, A7S, A7II, A7RII, Fujifilm X-T1 (with the e-shutter activated), Sigma dpM, dpQ, etc. even on a light, thin tripod, if remote controlled without touching them, and/or with shutter delay, are immune from vibrations/shock problems (if there is no wind of course).

And want say also that that Fuji hardly creates blur with his light mechanical shutter, but have other problems ...

But using his fast BKT 5 shots mode or the burst mode, shoting become a disaster under 1/200 sec. at 200mm focal lenghts, almost all are from blurred to extremly blurred.
On the tripod.
However in multy quick shot mode even Sony A7 fails, don't do much better.

Zero blur with Sony A7S activating his full electronic shutter that do not give any shutter shock, (single and burst mode) all in the total silence!

No HaR, you are wrong and you do not understand!
Hold? I don't hold it in hand...

Could you see that here from the begining in this post I am referring, above all, to the shooting mode with the E-shutter option enabled, both with Samsung NX1 and with others, as Sony A7?
Can you understand what I mean ... even if you have that extraordinary Canon without this option?
You know the technology of the so-called electronic first curtain of Sony A7 (as also of other few cameras)?

Is not a full electronic shutter, use both, the electronic as first step and the mechanical one after.
Hybrid.
When activated, Sony A7 give blur free shots, also with 1000 mm lenses!
Samsung NX1 instead can have problems, and these problems for what I have seen these last days are erratic.
Not always and not always with the same couple time & aperture at the same focal lenght.
So it happens with Samsung 50-150/2.8 in single shot mode.

Please!
50 mm?!
Why not 16mm?

You must try with longer focal lengths and under 1/160 (1 sec ... 1/160), come on HowaboutSHOCK!

What about? Have you read?
Do you prefer I write all in Latin?

Yesterday I redid some shots on my target test chart.
I can only confirm what I have already said, except that camera shake appear with greater evidence on horizontal lines (not on vertical ones, as I wrote before, was going from memory).
If I have time I'll post picts somewhere.

Meanwhile HowaR, why not try to make some shots (not hundreds) with 50-150 in landscape orientation (150mm with 1/30 s) ...?!

... and the mechanical one can add something worst, not correctable. I had read it but I have not done testing on this to see the difference.
Thanks for reminding me, I will do soon.

ROTCWoody: Best DPReview article I've seen...best camera I've ever used. Samsung reached the top of the mountain when they created this one. If they stop now, I don't care. I got mine and I'll get another. The NX-1's in camera abilities run circles around Canon and Nikon. And yes I have a D750...D7200...D2Xs and T6s.

Hey Greynerd!?

Hem ... ROTCWoody has only those 4 cameras?
Why would you want to expel him from this forum?

> "teddoman" one day ago have asked me, here in the page n.1:

Have you tested this on a tripod to verify it's not caused by other factors?
--------
My answer:

Yes teddoman, of course.
I usually adopt all the well known necessary precautions.
However in this case I deliberately used a tripod not particularly robust and large, an old GITZO G1228 LVL with the RRS BH-55 LR head.
If I had cemented the camera on a rock, I am sure that the blur would not have appeared!
We have to do appropriate considerations.
In the practical use - out from that almost optimal location of a study or a laboratory - you are subject to use a tripod that must not have to weigh a ton, and be reasonably sized, as when you go on long hikes.
In addition, not always the ground on which it leans is a hard rock. It can be grass, soft ground, sand.

There are very few weaknesses, but for one in particular I am very disappointed.
Despite that there is the possibility to activate the electronic shutter in combination with the mechanical one (which can not be excluded) theoretically useful to avoid that curtains vibration produce blurred images, is not effective enough (as, instead, is the case on the Sony A7 that do not produce blur in single shot mode). Under about 1/100 sec (particularly from 1s to 1/60) with long focal length, alas, blurs appears or can appear and ruin the micro detail.

It seems to me that the NX500 is a bit less vulnerable to this curse.
In this respect, the NX1 behaves like the Sony A7R!
Sigh!
It would be enough for Samsung to introduce an NX2 or NX1 II with a sensor similar to that inside Sony A7S or A7R II and, why not, another similar body with less Mpixels but more capable under low light.

And of course, as others, I expect the first FF!

Yes teddoman, of course. 

Now I am about to give you more explanation beyond this page, go to post on page 2 or could be the 3.

HowaboutRAW,

need new lenses to cover the FF, it seems obvious.
If you do not noticed the blur, well for you.
Be happy.
The blur appear similar to a double immage (a light splitted) on vertical lines of a test chart with the camera in landscape orientation.

I basically agree with everything you wrote, Dale, I hope that, in one way or another, Samsung continues to surprise us in the future with its NX line.
I recently bought and now have from a month the NX1, NX500 (16-50mm, 50-200mm of the kit), 12-24mm, 16-50mm S, 50-150mm S, 45mm, 85mm.
Hope I do not break the 12-24mm! (Google search for the construction defect of this lens).
I am waiting to receive adapters for Nikon, Pentax, Canon FD and Contax lenses.

I don't do video and I have not been able to test all and really well, during my hiking in the mountains, but the feeling that I already got from NX1 (firmware 1.40) for the little I have done so far outdoors, is already very promising in terms of operating speed, pleasure of the very good dials, overall ergonomics, overall ease of use and, not least, great picture quality, for many parameters.
Indeed these are not promises, they are actually there, existing in the present.

continue ...

Reactive: Isn't this a classic case of a solution looking for a problem? I wasn't aware my existing UV filter's tiny weight was a problem - it's insignificant compared with the lens weight. I wasn't aware it needed to be 10x stronger, as I've never been stupid enough to smash it against objects. I wasn't aware it needed to repel water and oil, since an occasional clean with IPA keeps it spotless. I wonder if Sigma will charge 'Art' prices for their completely clear glass filter? If so, they should move into homeopathy. Perhaps their next product will be a military-grade nuclear-hardened titanium lens cap?

On the contrary Reactive, your witty comment is actually quite stupid.
You seem smart but with short-sighted views.

Under certain conditions, outside a quiet laboratory or a home cozy and comfortable, outside, in difficult operating situations and in unfavorable weather conditions, or during a transport, etc, etc, you may be exposed to greater risk of doing damage due to countless reasons.

Even cars are not built to bump into other cars or against a wall and to be guided by inexperienced, careless or stupids, but yet there are many security systems, constantly improved, this to give to a stupid driver reduced chances of making harm to others and to himself, including you!

Yesterday I have received from Korea one polarizer of this new generation of Hoya Fusion filters.
Looks excellent, definitely very good is the matte black frame, also with a good grip.
We'll see how it will be and react in the field under different climatic conditions.

This is not good, Erez you have bad painted the sky, say so, in this stage your work it's incomplete! I am surprised that you did not see this, after all your explanations.
