My JVC GY-LS300CHU A MICRO 4/3 Experience

Hi, my name is Wade Johnston. I am a graphic designer and film maker living and working in the Kansas City area. For more than 20 years I have been producing short commercial films, moving from film to digital along the way. When DSLR's began shooting video, like everyone else I jumped on the band wagon. Why? Because they offered me something most video cameras didn't. Interchangeable lenses. My JVC GY-LS300CHU changes all of that.

This 4K camera gives the shooter the option of using any Micro 4/3 lens on the market today.
With lens adapters like these from Meta Bones, any DSLR lens can be fitted to the GY LS-300 CHU.

The award winning GY-LS300 is better than ever with new upgrades from JVC. This compact convenient ultra high definition camera, is designed for video, not still photography, giving your users the advantage over shooting on a DSLR. Plus—with the LS300U’s MFT Mount, you can use multiple lenses as you can with a DSLR, or even Super 35 cinematic lenses that will keep their angle of view. Prime lenses, Zoom lenses… They all work with the LS300U. In addition, the GY-LS300U is 4K capable and ready to live stream straight from the camera.

New Features with the Recent Firmware Upgrade.

  • Newly developed 4K Super 35 CMOS image sensor
  • 120 FPS for slow motion shooting
  • Support for prime zoom lenses
  • Cinema 4K (4096 x 2160) 24p recording at 150 Mbps

  • 4:2:2 Full HD recording at 50Mbps (24p-60p)
  • Histogram display

Your pro shooters will be able to create hours of pristine recordings on SDHC/SDXC 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.
