OIS does not work in video mode with the new NX1
on March 25, 2015
It is important for anyone shooting video to be aware of the fact that the OIS of this lens essentially shuts off in video mode when attached to an NX1. This is being reported by a number of people as the NX1 and this lens combination become more popular. It makes no difference which of the 2 OIS modes are selected, neither work.
It should be noted that the OIS works properly if all you're doing is shooting pictures. However just going into video standby results in the OIS dropping out.
I have tried two myself and neither Samsung 50-200 OIS III had functional OIS in video mode This is a good lens optically, but it is impossible to hand hold this steady with no OIS support. I've used two other Samsung lenses (16-50 & 18-200) and those perform flawlessly in regards to their OIS behavior on the same camera.
Hopefully Samsung updates the firmware of this lens so it's OIS works properly in conjunction with the NX1 camera.
