  • Replied in ZenFone Zoom 3
    OK, so I can answer my own question.. It definitely supports USB otg - when you insert the adapter you have the choice to select otg or reverse charging, which is actually a pretty neat feature, as ...
  • Replied in ZenFone Zoom 3
    I stand corrected, there was a firmware update and it was around 170mb in size. I'm not sure what the difference is at the moment - in the changelog it says the camera experience is better but I ...
  • I think you're probably right although with android 6 they took quite a while to make the app compatible I think, so perhaps there is still hope!
  • Replied in ZenFone Zoom 3
    Brilliant, thanks for sharing your settings! I don't suppose there's a way to go straight to manual mode without selecting 'm'? Not a massive deal but would be good if the phone could remember that. ...
  • Replied in ZenFone Zoom 3
    I believe it is the latest firmware. I'm happy enough with the iq I just expected a bit more given the specs that's all.
  • Replied in ZenFone Zoom 3
    I've had time to have a bit of a play around with the camera and first impressions are quite disappointing to be honest, compared to what I was expecting when I saw the specs. Liken you've already ...
  • It doesn't make a difference if you have a sim card inserted or not. If you are referring to the S8 then this came shipped with android 7 I believe, so the camera manager won't work. However, most ...
  • Replied in ZenFone Zoom 3
    It says the average is 6 hours 15,which is pretty good I'd say. I haven't tested mine extensively yet but I can see already that the battery will last far longer than on my note 5.
  • You're usually behind the camera and you can tilt the screen up or down if necessary. You can also use the samsung camera app, but this is only really worth it if you've mounted the gimbal on a ...
  • Replied in ZenFone Zoom 3
    I should be having one of these arrive later this week. Can anyone confirm if this supports usb otg as I've seen conflicting reports on this? Also, to use the reverse charging feature to charge a ...
  • How cool would a 50-1250mm f2. 8 lens be? ☺
  • My 16mm,20mm and 30mm are all very noisy when hunting for focus,with the focus mechanism shifting forwards and backwards. I'm not sure whether yours is any worse than this though.
  • I think you're absolutely right about most people not wanting long video clips, and you make a good case for this. However, often when shooting video you don't know exactly when the action is going ...
  • Hopefully at that point my Nx bodies will still be functioning. I think the only thing that can pull me away from the system would be some all-in-one solution that can rival the image quality. ...
  • Replied in Lens hood
    The lens didn't come with the hood unfortunately so I opted for a 3rd party hood that came bundled with 3 filters off ebay for a good price. The bad news is that while the hood and filters fit, ...
  • A bit more testing and I'm even more impressed with this lens now. I'm not convinced on the quality of the stills, but for video in good light, it's arguably unbeatable. Auto focus is silent and ...
  • Picked up the lens and first impressions are good. It's not in mint condition but it is as described and seems to function as it should. Sadly, the weather here in the UK is awful so I can't do any ...
  • The great thing about ebay is that it can show you the true market value for an item. I don't agree that it is overpriced, there are people out their willing to pay that much and an item is only ...
  • I'm confused with the way prices are for the nx line. At the moment on ebay there's a seller selling around 7 brand new 16-50s lenses for £600 each.
  • Are you able to get the nx1 repaired at all?
