    Hi Guys,

    I am interested in purchasing some filters to change up the image of my NX5U. Can you make any recommendations of what I should purchase? a Kit? I will need a filter holder as well correct?

    Whatever you do, make sure you pay more and get COATED filters. The first UV filter I bought was not coated and any light shining into the lens created a terrible ring effect because of the amount of space between the filter and the glass.

    Hi Michael,

    Thanks for the response. Can you recommend any specific filter or kit?

    Also – I’ve been using your camera settings per another thread and I owe you big time because the video def. looks better. However, you mention int that thread that you use those settings for everything except cinematic shots. What do you change for cinematic shots?

    I’d suggest Hoya filters. You can get them at B&H. As for cinematic shots, there is no specific setting. My profile setting changes depending on the look I’m going for (high contrast, low contrast, greyish, blue, graded, etc). The great thing is you can pretty much dial this camera in for any look, eliminating a lot of time in post.
