  1. Thanks for all the information regarding firmware on your site, just bought into Samsung with the NX300, NX3000, 16,30,45 primes, 16-50 OIS & 50-200 OIS (not sure if its II or III). The first thing I do is update all the firmware and using your site to cross check was great.

    1. Dathon

      I suppose we have no further firmware updates? All seem to have stopped.

      1. Matt Everglade

        Unfortunately that’s likely to happen, yes. 🙁

          1. Matt Everglade

            They are probably only waiting for getting the stock cleared in he US.
            NX is mostly dead all over the world, at least for now.

  2. rfcy

    Hello, thanks a lot for the list. I wish you could add the true release date of the firmware instead of “last checked”. I suggest to place the “last checked” status above or under the table.

    1. Matt Everglade

      Hello, as requested I added the column “Last Update”. It will contain the information since the start of this service. All prior updates don’t have this information available and they are probably from before October 2014. “Last check” depends on the product therefore I can’t put it under the table as it might differ depending on the product. Hope the change helps… 🙂 Cheers, Matt

  3. Stephen Strain

    Hi – Thanks for making it so much easier.
    Probably me but my 50-200mm is 50-200mm ED OIS.
    Doesn’t seem to be listed?
    Any help appreciated.
    Plus – about to get an NX300M – will that just use NX300 updates.
    Cheers

    1. Matt Everglade

      Hi, the labels and titles here do not match perfectly. You just need to know which revision you have. Could be Rev. I. Anyway, you can only use those firmware files that suit to your lens. For the NX300M there is a separate firmware, see the camera list for more details.
      Cheers, Matt

  4. Chris

    Hello!

    I have got Samsung nx30 and Samsung lens 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 OIS III and a lot of issues with it.
    Firts, when I’m recording (In photography it doesn’t matter so much and I’m mainly recording) on my screen when I move the camera I can see the shadow, one time on left side, one time on right, it change when I move camera. I don’t have any idea how to fix this and i don’t know is it problem with camera or lens?
    Second, when I’m recording and doing shoots from ground to sea, from up to down, or when I’m fast moving camera when recording the ground (recording with glidecam) It becoming blurred, I could see pixels.

    Could anyone help Me ? This issues, problems are very annoying

    Cheers 😉
    Chris

    1. Matt Everglade

      Hi Chris,
      the first problem is strange. Can you provide an example?
      Second issue could be a compression issue. Have you tried to set the Movie quality to HQ? What movie size are you recording? Have you changed Multi Motion or activated DIS?
      Kind regards, Matt

  5. Rakesh

    I have a Samsung Galaxy nx camera (ek-gn120) model and the Samsung nx 18-200mm lens
    The problem I’m having with the lens is every time I switch on the ois knob to on the image starts to shake a lot n the display even when recording video as well when I switch it off everything is normal
    Can someone help me plz

    1. Matt Everglade

      You should get in contact with Samsung and eventually send it in for repair. I think this is not a problem you can solve yourself…

  6. Marselino da Santo

    Hay Matt,
    I just bought samsung nx30 and little confused to choose lens betwen Samsung NX 50-200mm f4.0-5.6 ED OIS III and Samsung NX 18-200mm f3.5-6.3 ED OIS. since i am a beginner, could you please help which one i should choose between those lense.

    Many thanks for your help and looking for your help soon as possible

    1. Hello Marselino,

      The Samsung NX 18-200mm lens is mostly recommended for video recording, because its still picture quality is not adequate for a 20MP imaging sensor. It also has a very high price tag. I would only recommend it as a “swiss army knife” type of solution if you are afraid of exchanging lenses in the field. However, the NX30 features built-in ultrasonic cleaning for the imaging sensor, so dust ingestion shouldn’t be a big problem. (On the other hand some people are clumsy and may drop lenses while swapping them.)

      The Samsung NX 50-200mm tele lens has better still image quality, but it still lacks powerful apertures and may have a problem with autofocus in low light. In general the autofocus of NX 50-200mm is slow even in broad daylight. On the other hand, it is really affordabe!

      (If you have big funds, the NX 50-150mm S professional telephoto lens is better but may be an overkill for the NX30 body. Another solution could be the most excellent NX 85mm f/1,4 “portrait” lens with a 2x teleconverter, provided you can live with the fixed focal lenght and accept the high price tag.)

      Allegedly there will be a fixed 300mm f/2,8 pro-grade Samsung tele lens for the NX bayonet, but it is still in the prototype phase and the price will be very high anyhow.

      Best regards: Tamas Feher, Hungary.

      1. Matt Everglade

        I completely agree with Tamas’ explanation. 🙂

  7. Matt – Very generous of you to share all this. You made it possible for me (father of three with a video production business and also building a house in my “spare” time) to download 7 firmware updates in less than 5 minutes for my various NX Cameras and lenses!
    Seriously – THANKS!
    Mike

      Glad I could help! Subscribe to the firmware newsletter and you get all information for your cameras and lenses immediately via email. 😉

  8. Rick

    Great resource! However, it appears that the firmware link for the Samsung 50-200mm F4-5.6 OIS III downloads the old version 1.10 instead of version 1.11 that is displayed. Can you look into it? Thanks

    1. Matt Everglade

      Samsung mixed things up and forgot to replace the firmware file. I can’t do anything about it, it’s the same on their own iLauncher software. =/ We need to wait for Samsung to change it…

      1. H.M.

        Samsung woke up!
        I downloaded and installed the lens firmware version 01.11.

  9. Artur

    Please,
    I tried to update my 50-200mm iii ed ois first by Samsung iLauncher, which shows there is the new 1.11 version. But there is some problem when it tries to unzip the file (it’s a complete automated process).
    So, I search on Web and found your site and, fortunatelly, you have the file for manual download and unzip, but, you say version 1.11 and the link points to 50-200mm-iFn2_v1.10_0508.
    When I upload the uncompressed file to my camera and try to update, it shows 1.10 –> 1.10?
    Is that correct?

  10. Artur

    Just complementing my last message: I oppned the lens.bin file, using an hex editor program and could verify the code 01.10_02.30_04.00 inside it. Comparing to another firmware file taken from your list, the Samsung 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 PZ ED OIS, version 1.30, I downloaded it too and, using the hex editor, indeed it has the code 01.30_01.50.
    So, I believe you have post the version 10 instead version 11 on the link for 50-200mm lens.

    1. Matt Everglade

      Please see the comments above your posts for further information about this issue.

  11. Justin

    Hey Matt,

    Great source. I purchased my NX1 a month ago and it had the updated firmware (1.40); however the lens only had 1.02 and when I try to do the wireless update it says “it’s updated” How do I update the lens to 1.03 with the provided bin file in your link?

    Thanks in advance.

    1. Justin

      Nevermind…I believed I figured it out. thanks!

  12. Imke Emmery

    Hello Matt,

    I hope you can help me…
    I got a Samsung NX 100 camera and I recently bought a 45 mm F.1.8 lens. I’m not sure if it’s compatible or not…
    I already figured out that I definitely need a firmware update on my camera, because, for example, my AF is not working…

    What do I need to do?
    Please help! 🙂

    1. Matt Everglade

      According to the changelog of the NX100 firmware: “[ Improved items of v1.13 ] 1. Compatibility with lens 45mm”
      Therefore it should be compatible after upgrading both camera and lens. Enjoy it.

  13. Rakesh

    Hey Matt nice source you got there have one problem I have a Samsung Galaxy nx with a 18-200mm nx lens problem is any time I have the ois toggle to on it make the screen jump when I press the shutter button to take a photo and for movies it only jumps a lot it show on the movie clip

    1. Matt Everglade

      I’m sorry, but I’ve no idea.Never heard of this issue before…

  14. Ario

    Hello, many thanks for your efforts! it made it a lot easier as Samsung does not have all firmware on its websites (anymore)! Best regards from Zurich! 🙂

    Hi, I have a samsung galaxy NX body with a 18-55 lens and additional 60mm F2.8 Macro Lens. As hard as I try I cannot get any firmware updates loaded. The I Launcher cannot see it from my windows laptop to search for firmware. I have downloaded ZIP files from samsung support site for the bin files for the firmwares and dropped into both the root of the camera and SD card but the firmware in settings always remains greyed out. Is there a fault with the galaxy NX ? How do i get upgrades to lens firmwares for the macro lens? Basically the issue I am trying to rectify is the macro lens only captures good resolution of the centre of the photos of and the sides are blurry and dark. I work in dentistry trying to capture all the teeth in their biting position with the macro but I can only get a the central teeth but not the side molars. any assistance would be most appreciated! thanks

  20. Meldgaard

    Hi – What a great site this is!
    At work I have ‘inherited’ a Samsung NX20 – Boss upgraded to a new Lumix 🙂
    It comes with a 18-55 mm OIS with iFn std lens and a 50-200 mm OIS iFn.
    Have upgraded the camera firmware without any issues, but when looking into the lens firmware there seems to be different versions for different say 18-55 lenses. How do I see which version my lenses are? Are the OIS 18-55 mk II and III straight out marked on the lenses or?

    1. Matt Everglade

      Try to use iLauncher for upgrade, it will download the suitable firmware.
      I can’t remember how the lenses were labelled, but you should find information on the web.
