JVC GY-LS300 MFT Mount Overview

A small form factor, Super-35mm-sized, CMOS, 4K sensor and MFT interchangeable lens mount are just the beginning when discussing JVC's GY-LS300 4KCAM Handheld S35mm Camcorder. The GY-LS300 is part of JVC's 4KCAM line of cameras, which can record 8-bit 4:2:2 HD Signals at up to 60P at 50 Mb/s. This camcorder supports dual codec recording, allowing to capture two different codecs, .mov and AVCHD, simultaneously to its dual SDHC/SDXC media card slots using optional media cards. The camcorder incorporates 3G-SDI and HDMI outputs, supporting 4K output over the HDMI out.

Supporting wireless streaming to a variety of streaming services while simultaneously recording HD to an optional memory card is a strength of GY-LS300. It also supports IP network remote control, remote viewing, metadata editing, and FTP of clips across a network using optional network connections and adapters. This is for the camcorder body only and does not include a lens. However, the camcorder features an MFT mount that allows you to use a wide variety of full-frame, PL, C, and EF mount lenses with optional adapters. It also features both a flip out 3.5 LCD view screen and flip up EVF. A detachable handle provides two XLR audio inputs, each with phantom power.

The GY-LS300 features a JVCKENWOOD AltaSens 4K CMOS Super 35mm image sensor and a Micro Four Thirds (MFT) lens mount. This allows you to use Super 35mm Cinema lenses with optional adapters, which will retain their native angle of view.
When the camera is used with MFT, Super 16, and other size lenses, using JVC's proprietary Variable Scan Mapping feature will allow you to maintain the lens' native angle of view. This gives filmmakers the flexibility of using widely available MFT lenses as well as high-end cinema lenses. It is also possible to attach the camera to microscopes and other devices using a MFT/C-mount adaptor.
The GY-LS300 records QuickTime (.MOV) file format. You can connect the camcorder to a 4K Ultra HD monitor with a single HDMI cable and view the camera's live 4K signal. You can also playback recorded files directly from the camera. In addition, the GY-LS300 down-converts UHD signals to standard HD for output through the built-in SDI or HDMI connectors.
The camcorder body incorporates a filter selector wheel that features a clear, 1/4, 1/16, and 1/64 ND filter choices.
All camcorders in JVC's 4KCAM family record 4:2:2 HD signals up to 60p at 50 Mb/s, making them an ideal camera for general HD production work. 50 Mb/s files are stored in the QuickTime (.MOV) format for easy editing. Conventional AVCHD (4:2:0) recording provides wide editing compatibility in an array of standard HD and SD formats.
Equipped with a high-speed broadband modem makes the camera attractive for use in by crews that need a way to deliver a live video stream without the need for a microwave or satellite truck. Through its use of dual codecs, the camera offers live transmission (streaming) including directly to USTREAM and YouTube while simultaneously recording HD to a memory card. Transmission at selected resolutions and bitrates is possible independent of the recording mode. The camera offers a range of streaming options from basic point-to-point to cloud streaming with advanced error correction

  • Micro Four Thirds System Lens Mount
  • Variable Scan Mapping maintains native angle of view for a variety of lenses including Super 35, MFT, and Super 16. Adapters available for PL and EF mount lenses

Does this camera perform well in low light?

Does this camera perform well in low light?
Asked by: Miguel
This is geared more as a Cinema Camera and those tend to perform the best in well lit situations. However it does have a larger Super 35mm Sensor, so it should give you a decent performance in lower light.

Are these shipping with the latest firmware ...

Are these shipping with the latest firmware updates?
Asked by: Robert
The products we receive from the manufacture are models that are updated with the most recent firmware when shipping to us. Sometimes a firmware update can release when the items are sent to us or when an item sits in inventory. If you receive the camera without the latest firmware update, you can simply update the camera yourself by downloading the update from the manufacture website. https://bit.ly/2V1qBhK

question

On the LS300, will the Panasonic 100-300 Mark II lens zoom/operate via the on-board LS300 rockers ?
Asked by: Patrick
I can't speak for this lens as I use only an Olympus zoom. However, as far as I know the zoom rocker allows you to zoom through the attached lens, but does this internally and not by controlling the lens itself.
