For video, if you don't mind the crop factor, that NX500 might be a better choice. The NX1 has the worst aliasing since the Canon 7d. The 500 crops the sensor in video which should mitigate the NX1's fatal flaw.

Aliasing? No, if you are talking about 4K on the NX1t the NX1 has the least aliasing in 4K of any consumer camera or camcorder and the highest resolution. See, for example, slashcam.de resolution charts. If you are seeing aliasing, it is likely due to watching 4K at lower resolutions with a bad scaler.

I have both the NX1 and NX500; both are great for 4K video for different purposes.

Maybe, I have a AOC 4k monitor. Try shooting musical instruments, every monitor I've tried exhibits bad aliasing with NX1 footage, I've shot the same subjects with comparable settings with an FZ1000, GH4 and GH2 and they showed no aliasing.

Most people that actually own and shoot with this camera admit it aliases. I say it aliases badly. YMMV. The NX500 is reported to be better in this area. Hope so.

On a side note, the aliasing and excessive moire drove me to sell my set up, I found out the hard way that the resale market for Samsung cams is difficult. No one wants them.
