This recent interview matches some information we have received of a re-vamped JVC LS300 that has a heavy emphasis on being an all-in-one live streaming solution:
4K projectors remain expensive and may not be affordable for a few more years. The JVC DLA-Z1 has a very high quality lens with 18 lenses in 16 groups. It features a rich color gamut, Blu-Escent laser, and 20000 hour life expectancy. Price is expected to be around $38,000 USD (not yet confirmed).
We haven’t heard much about JVC’s interchangeable lens video camera lately but it’s still a viable option. JVC has also upgraded the firmware and brought about improvements. The following is a recently released review of the JVC LS300:
Leeming LUT One is known for offering LUTs that are tweaked for dynamic range and skin tones. We have heard positive reports of this LUT used with the Panasonic GH4.
LUTs for the Sony cameras are in the works and are listed as coming soon and now it’s available for the JVC GY-LS300 as well.
Here’s a sample video showing the benefit:
It’s nice to see JVC producing an interesting video camera. If only the sensor had a bit better dynamic range or better frame rates and codecs this camera would have been great. It’s not a bad camera though and an option for those who have really wanted a m43 interchangeable lens video camera.
The JVC’s sensor is not known for it’s dynamic range, but to be fair it’s much better than the previous generations of video cameras. There’s just no wow factor and it’s lacking behind some of the competitors. That said, this is a great video camera that offers a lot of creative potential on account of its interchangeable lens mount. Kudos to JVC for continuing to add features and upgrade firmware.
