Hey guys! We’re showing off the NX1 pretty hard, so we wanted to give you guys the chance to ask us any questions you have about the camera, our experience shooting with it in different conditions, our involvement with Samsung, Samsung’s NX mount lenses, Joey’s commercial product display skills… you name it!
Lauren will be here at 4:00pm PST on THURSDAY (MAY 6) for a whole hour to chat! Until then, discuss!
For those asking about (or are worried about) how we’re handling sponsorship:
At RocketJump, we shoot on RED– but we know not everyone can afford that or have the opportunity to work with those cameras, and we’re super lucky in that respect. So here’s the thing:
We very much wanted to shoot on the NX1 for the Welcome Video. Samsung was a good partnership for our first project, since they offered a neat camera we could work with that offered us what we needed, but was accessible to more people.
We want to show that no matter what you are shooting on, it’s about how you use it, and that you use it well. I do wish we had included more of that context in this video.
The school is going to cover products and brands, because that’s just part of the industry. This is one of many videos that will introduce you guys to different products and options available to you at different price points. We want to present you with options, and that there is not a single “best” option that will work for everyone. It all comes back to what the right “fit” is, for you and your projects.
I agree with a lot of the initial reactions that this video doesn’t quite “feel” right. I believe it’s because it’s missing that context. We are taking these concerns and applying them to how we handle products, equipment, and especially sponsorships, in the future.
