Rediscovering the joys of NX500 video - help with settings please?

I've recently tried using the NX500 (hacked for recording time limit!) with the Samyang 12/2 lens!! Quite the combo! I've been using 1080p at 24fps.

However I find the mp4 file size too large for daily logging. Using FFmpeg I can go from a 12 Gig file down to 3/4 of a gig. The quality seems about the same, at least for my purposes. For daily logging you can see this adds up!

Is there an easy way to set the NX500 to something like this (generate a quality but much smaller file) in camera?

Thanks!

The file sizes:

Original: 12.3 GB (13,299,957,760 bytes)

Smaller (After FFmpeg): 743 MB (779,337,728 bytes)

Here's the FFmpeg command line:

ffmpeg -v quiet -i "%%F" -vcodec libx264 -crf 24 "%%~nF- Smaller.mp4"

What's interesting to me is that this switches from:

Original.MP4
