Re: NX500 as the near perfect compact camera

Agree completely, in fact the 1080p of the nx500 can give the 4k of the Sony a run for its money. And it's true there is something missing from the Sony footage but it's hard to put your finger on exactly what.

A gimbal definitely helps but unfortunately the primes aren't spectacular in terms of autofocus in video mode, and somewhat noisy and move in and out a lot! If you are adept (not me) you can toggle the manual focus button on the touch screen whilst shooting video and this improves things greatly as long as the subject isn't moving around too much.

The NX1 is a fantastic camera for both stills and video. Paired with the 16-50s lens or 18-200mm it's unbeatable!
