4KCAM Super 35mm live streaming camcorder


Compact, convenient and ultra-high definition, the GY-LS300CHE is equipped with a 4K Super 35 CMOS sensor and accommodates a wide range of cinema and photographic lenses and adapters for dazzling cinematic effects. Create hours of recordings on SDHC/SDXC media in a variety of image formats, while the dual codec design allows you to stream live HD while recording full HD.

Super 35 CMOS 4K image sensor and MFT lens mount

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.

Variable scan mapping

You can use a variety of Super 35, MFT or Super 16 lenses with ease. That’s because Variable Scan Mapping (VRSM) 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 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 VRSM maximizes the pixels on the sensor chip to accommodate common lens sizes and maintain their original field of view.

4K (UHD) 60/50P HDMI output and 4K 4:2:2 recording

  • The GY-LS300CHE can output UHD (3840x2160) at 60/50p via its HDMI port. What’s more, JVC’s partnership with Atomos means the GY-LS300CHE operates seamlessly with the new Ninja Inferno and Shogun Inferno monitor recorders, triggering recording from the camera’s start/stop operation. Plus, when the camera is set to J-Log 1 gamma recording mode, the Atomos units will record the HDR footage and display it on their integrated, seven-inch monitors.

    Compared to typical 4:2:0, the ability to record 4K (UHD) 4:2:2 30/25/24p at 150Mbps/70Mbps makes the GY-LS300CH an ideal camera for broadcasting and cinematic production houses alike. The color accuracy of 4:2:2 enables the GY-LS300CH to deliver exceptional color resolution even when images are in sharp contrast to the background which is particularly useful when strong colors are in contrast to bright backgrounds or in green screen uses. Full HD 4:2:2 60/50p recording at 50Mbps also possible.

    JVC Log gamma (J-Log 1)

    JVC Log mode delivers wide latitude and high dynamic range – up to 800 percent – to create images that truly rival the look of film. By preserving more information over the entire dynamic range and wide color gamut of the Super 35 sensor, log images will look flat and lack contrast but contain more information for grading and manipulation in post production giving you the opportunity to create truly stunning, cinematic results.

    For the ultimate cinema look, record images in Cinema 4K (4096x2160) at 150 or 70Mbps, or Cinema 2K (2048x1080) at 50Mbps each with a 17:9 aspect ratio for digital cinema presentations. Both modes support recording in 23.98p or true 24p to match the frame rate of film.

    Advanced IP network communication and live HD streaming

    The camcorder features JVC's latest IP communications engine, giving you remote control and monitoring of vital camera and lens functions from a tablet, smartphone, or computer anywhere in the world. Live streaming is possible in HD or SD resolutions, depending on available bandwidth. Connect your camera to an optional Wi-Fi or 4G/LTE modem and share your programme with an audience anywhere in the world via content delivery networks such as YouTube, Facebook Live, and other cloud services.

      GY-LS300CHE - 4KCAM Super 35mm live streaming camcorder

      Product Highlights
      Super 35mm CMOS 4K Image Sensor

      The GY-LS300CHE 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 (appropriate adapter required). 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. The unique combination of the MFT mount, the larger Super 35mm image sensor and Variable Scan Mapping give the camera nearly limitless lens options.
      Ultra HD Recording at 150Mbps and Live Output

      Working with 4K has never been easier! Insert an 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-LS300CHE 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 GY-LS300CHE 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-LS300CHE 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.
      Harness the full power of 4K Ultra HD including 4K 4:2:2 sampling, and 4K 60/50p Output.
      Advanced IP Network Communication and Streaming

      The GY-LS300CHE 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.
