question

My NX500 refuses to send pictures via email. Also, the Samsung Manager app is not working and whenever I connect my camera to my macbook air it stops working and my computer claims that I ejected my camera when I didn't Is this a bug with my camera? Can anyone help me I just want to be able to post my pics on social media!
Asked by: erin k.
Recheck your email settings to make sure it's set up right. If it is then maybe your email provider is holding you back from sending pics that are too big. Many email providers will not let you send any more then 10MB files. Since the NX500 produced 29megapixel images, they are probably too big to send.

question

How is the video performance of the NX-500 at 720p 120fps? is there a duration limit recording in slow motion? Also I have read that the NX-500 has a short live battery, how long the battery last recording video?
Asked by: Sandra B.
Yes, when using that setting there is a 30 minute time limit. Let me say this much. I highly recommend this camera. I have been using it since December and I love it. As for battery life I have used all kinds of camera's Nikon, Panasonic, etc and I am very pleased with the amount of battery life I get from the Samsung. However it has long been my habit to always purchase two additional batteries when I purchase a camera. I number them and use them in sequence. I hope this helps.

question

Can I put a trigger on this to operate studio lights?
Asked by: Jeffrey A.
The NX500 Manual says Yes (page 108-109): Set the flash mode, exposure value, flash brightness, or multi flash when you attach an external flash to the camera. You can also set wireless sync to control the external flash. Set wireless sync to control internal and external flash units remotely via wireless signal. The remote system consists of a master flash that is mounted on the camera and one or more slave flash units. A slave flash is assigned to one of three groups: A, B, or C. (page 109)

question

What are the differences in the NX-500 and NX-1 processor?
Asked by: Anonymous
The NX500 uses the DRIMe Vs processor and the NX1 uses the DRIMe V process. Which means the NX1 processor is a bit faster than the NX500. This is why the NX1 shoots 15fps and the NX500 shoots 9fps. Hope this answers your question!

question

Does the Samsung NX500 output a live video signal from the HDMI port whilst taking stills? I want to use this camera as primarily a stills camera mounted on a UAV so need a realtime video feed of what the camera is seeing.
Asked by: Anonymous
The camera WILL still continue an HDMI feed while taking stills and video. It is recommended to turn off the Auto Preview after each image is captured to help prevent any interruptions from occurring.
