JVC has introduced the GY-LS300 4KCAM Handheld S35mm camcorder, a relatively compact Micro Four Thirds model featuring 4K Ultra HD-resolution recording. JVC has incorporated a JVCKENWOOD AltaSens 4K CMOS Super 35mm sensor alongside the MFT lens mount, promising full native angle of view for different lens standards including Super 35, MFT, and Super 16 via its proprietary Variable Scan Mapping tech. The JVC GY-LS300 is able to record 4:2:2 HD Signals at up to 60P at 50 Mb/s and allowing to capture two different formats, MOV and AVCHD, simultaneously to its dual SDHC/SDXC media card slots using optional media cards.
