Samsung NX1000 Lens help! Can't Post

Hey guys -

I am going to buy a Samsung NX1000 for shooting stills of tandems

But, i am unsure as to what Lens most closely matches the video of a gropro 3!

Any advice would be appreciated, cheers!

zero experience with the Samsung, but based on the Sony NX5, I'd suggest the 16mm pancake is the closest.
Someone else may have a better informed opinion.

Cheers for the fast reply man,

so the "http://lenshero.com/lens/Samsung-16mm-f2.4-Pancake-lens" ?

It would be awsome if that lens will line up with the gopro 3, as it only weighs 75g + camera body 218g!, would make for a super light stills setup.

oh and also, you reckon stay clear of any of the Fisheye lenses?

Any more info on the "closest matching" lens for this camera (relative to a gopro) would be appreciated!

hey raceface, awsome info - but i am still a little confused.

what lens/lens's are you going to buy & why?

I am noob when it comes to camera specs, but judging by what you put in your post are you implying that... the most similar lens, to match with a gopro when its set to wide - would be the "Samyang NX 8mm"?

what would you personally use for shooting stills of tandems?

cheers for the detailed info, and for the fast reply! your help is very appreciated, i don't want to waste money on buying the wrong lens.

my setup will be NX1000 + 16mm & CX100 + Raynox0.3x

Samyang NX 8mm is closest to GoPro set to wide, it also has similar fisheye distortion, but i think this setup will be too wide for tandems or anything outside formation except some very creative shots from very close distance.

i would personally use Samsung NX 16mm and GoPro set to narrow (you should have a bit wider picture than these shooting with Canons + kit lens and video should have less distortion) or take Samsung NX 12-24 if you plan to use GoPro with narrow and also middle field of view.
