Samsung NX1 Free Lut Pack

After working with and experimenting quite a bit with the nx1 for a few months, here is the set of luts I created to use when shooting. Download them and let me know what you think, and if there are any other looks you think would be nice to have!

Your NX1 should be using the following settings:
Manual Mode
Gamma: Normal Gamma
Master Black Level: 0
Luminance Level: 16-235 (for internal recording) 0-255 (for external high bit-rate recording, ie shogun/odyssey)
Picture Wizard: “Custom 1”
Adjust “Custom 1” settings as follow: Color (leave default settings) Saturation (-2) Sharpness (-10) Contrast (-5) Hue (0)

Rec709 Lut:
(This will adjust the levels back to normal)

Fuji Print Lut:

Kodak Print:

(inspired by adobes take on cinespace)

(This will flatten out the image to accept stylized luts of your choosing and shows you all the info captured in the image)

These are designed to be the start of your color grade, not the final step. Add or take away some contrast, shift it blue or green, whatever!

  1. I am confused about luminance level. Mind explaining why 16-235 internally is ideal, even when shooting with fast cards?

    1. Speed has nothing to do with that choice, rather it has to do with how nle’s recognize luminance values. External recorders that record in prores are already being read in a truncated way by programs like premiere, so having it 16-235 in camera when shooting out to a recorder has little useful benefits. keeping the slightly flatter luminance levels in camera will make these luts match external recorders where the in camera settings were 0-255. It’s about matching the image so the luts work in both cases.
