GYLS300: Overview

Compact, convenient, and ultra high definition! The GY LS300 is equipped with a 4K Super 35mm CMOS sensor and accommodates a wide range of cinema and photographic lenses and adapters for dazzling cinematic effects. Create hours of pristine recordings on SDHC media in a variety of image formats including 4K Ultra HD, Full HD with 4:2:2 sampling, SD and web friendly proxy formats. Conventional DSLR cameras simply can't match the high reliability, long recording time and ergonomics provided by JVC's GY-LS300. Its dual codec design allows you to make 2 copies of your program simultaneously. You can even stream live HD over the internet to content delivery networks such as USTREAM while recording full HD. No other removable lens video camera offers this much flexibility in such a compact, easy-to-handle form factor.

 

Super 35mm CMOS 4K Image Sensor

The GYLS300 features a JVCKENWOOD AltaSens 4K CMOS Super 35mm image sensor uniquely combined with an industry standard Micro Four Thirds (MFT) lens mount. Super 35mm Cinema lenses may be used and will retain their native angle of view.* When the camera is used with MFT, Super 16 and other size lenses, JVC's proprietary Variable Scan Mapping feature will maintain the lens's 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 unique combination of the MFT mount, the larger S35 image sensor and Variable Scan Mapping give the camera nearly limitless lens options.

The Micro Four Thirds mount offers full coverage of the Super 35mm sensor, as shown in this actual photographic comparison with an MFT sensor. With the GY LS300, you get all the benefits of the MFT mount plus the benefits of a larger sensor.

*Mount adaptor may be required. Adapters are available for PL, EF, Nikon, C, and other lenses.

Micro Four Thirds Lens Mount

The matching of our Super 35 sensor and Micro Four Thirds (MFT) lens mount makes for
a brilliant marriage between high-end cinematic imagery and affordable glass. Dozens of high quality Micro Four Thirds lenses are readily available and require no adapter.
Thanks to the short flange focal distance (slightly less than 20mm) most cinema lenses can be adapted for use. Various mount adapters are available, including PL mount, Canon EF mount, Nikon, and C-Mount. The mount's electrical connections are compatible with many auto focus, iris and power zoom lenses-even when using an adapter.
One important difference from most Micro Four Thirds cameras is that the GY-LS300 uses a Super 35 imager-approximately 35% larger than a standard MFT imager. JVC's mount
provides full coverage of the imager meaning that Super 35 lenses may be used without worry of vignetting. In fact, a number of S35 lenses are available that do not require an adapter. For the professional on a budget, having a camera this versatile can literally save thousands of dollars in avoided new lens purchases.

Unparalleled Flexibility

Most people would assume that the Super 35 sensor (large) and an MFT mount
(small) is a mismatch being the MFT sensor is 26% smaller than the Super 35 sensor. But, where the JVC GY-LS300 is concerned that is simply not true! How? It's easy, the GY-LS300 is compatible with a wide array of lens mounts enabling photographers the ability to choose just the right lens, with the perfect aperture, and choice field of view for any scene. And then, JVC's unique Variable Scan Mapping technology maintains the native angle of view for any and all compatible lenses!

Variable Scan Mapping
Native Field of View for Any Lens

Imagine having a 4K video camera that could utilize any number of lenses, of various formats and sizes, and the camera just knew how to properly map the pixels on the sensor chip to properly frame your lens of choice ... Now, stop imagining. Thanks to the revolutionary technology we call Variable Scan Mapping, VSM for short, the GY-LS300 lets you choose the lens you want as it enables the camera to maintain the native angle of view for a large variety of lenses including many popular Super 35, MFT and Super 16.

How does it work? With the right third-party adapter and lens, VSM intelligently remaps the pixels on the sensor chip in accordance with the native field of view of the lens so that the pixels fill the entire picture frame- thereby eliminating vignetting. And that means, thanks to VSM, professional cinematographers can actually use high-end, large format cinema 35 lenses on a handheld camera that will correctly frame those lenses!

The images below illustrate how VSM maximizes the pixels on the sensor chip to accommodate common lens sizes and maintain their original field of view.

4K Ultra HD Recording at 150Mbps and Live Output

Working with 4K has never been easier! Insert an SDHC or SDXC (UHS-I Speed class3) memory card and record hours of 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) material. Recordings are made using the Quicktime (.MOV) file format and are compatible with many popular editing systems. Connect a 4K Ultra HD monitor with a single HDMI cable, and view the camera's live 4K signal. You can also play back recorded files directly from the camera. The GY-LS300 also downconverts UHD signals to standard HD for output through the built-in SDI or HDMI connectors.

4:2:2 Full HD recording at 50Mbps

The GYLS300 records 4:2:2 HD signals up to 60p at 50Mbps making it an ideal camera for general HD production work. 50Mbps files are stored in the Quicktime (.MOV) format for easy editing. Conventional AVCHD (4:2:0) recording is also possible, providing wide editing compatibility in an array of standard HD and SD formats.

Dual SDHC/SDXC Card Slots

Dual SDHC/SDXC card slots make the GY LS300 a truly versatile camcorder, offering such benefits as simultaneous recording and relay recording. In relay recording mode, you can shoot continuously and seamlessly over multiple cards. When one card is full, the camcorder switches seamlessly and automatically to the other card. And because cards are hot swappable, there is in effect no limit to the continuous shooting time in any mode, even with lower capacity cards.

Web Friendly (Proxy) file formats

Lower resolution H.264 files (480x270p and 960x540p) may be recorded simultaneously with full HD files. These files are significantly smaller than HD files, and thus are very suitable for immediate posting to the web. A file recorded in the 960 x 540 mode is approximately 1/10th the size of a full HD file recorded at 35 Mbps, and therefore takes a fraction of the time to post. The smaller files may be quickly imported to an iPad for easy editing using iMovie or Pinnacle Studio. Transporting video to the web or back to the studio has never been faster.

 

Advanced IP Network Communication and Streaming

The GYLS300 features JVC's latest IP communications engine giving you remote control and monitoring of vital camera functions from a tablet, smartphone, or computer anywhere in the world. Live streaming is possible in HD or lower resolutions, depending on available bandwidth. JVC's Advanced Streaming Technology (AST) includes Zixi powered Forward Error Correction with ARQ, delivering high quality streams even under challenging conditions. And now RTMP protocol makes it easier than ever to deliver your live streams to content delivery networks such as USTREAM and YouTube. Just press one button and you're streaming to the world!
