The GY-LS300CH features a 4K CMOS Super 35 image sensor – a premium solution for uncompromised cinema production, ultra-clear broadcast video, as well as full resolution 4K video. This large sensor delivers a superior dynamic range, high S/N ratio and high sensitivity, contributing artistic visual expression including shallow depth of field 'bokeh' effects.
Super 35 sensor and Micro Four Thirds (MFT) lens mount provide a balance of 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, whether PL mount or Canon EF 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-LS300CH uses a Super 35 imager— approximately 35% larger than a standard MFT imager. JVC’s mount provides full coverage of the imager so Super 35 lenses may be used without 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 mean huge savings in lens purchases.
