Anamorphic and slow motion options?

 

The firmware upgrade was a big improvement, but I still miss some options to use it with all my anamorphic adapters and finally be able to replace my gh4.

Where is JVC support???

 

After much anticipation, I purchased this camera, expecting it to be a "work horse", as the ads state. As a 50% run and gun - 50% studio / controlled shooting environment, I take see the potential for a crisp image, but with much fine tuning. The...

Update on my previous review

 

This is an update on my previous review for your consideration (forewarning). In that review I opined regarding the poor quality of the lcd and evf. In point of fact, these two items are the same as the ones they use in lower models of half the price....

Great camera with (IMO) some serious short comings.

 

I purchased the LS300 as my first 4k camera back in April of this year. In some respects I think I should wait to write a review, but there are some things I believe need to be mentioned that customers should know before deciding to buy. Yes, there's...

Dream Camera for Filmmakers

 

I am an independent filmmaker, having done 16mm and Super8 features, and now very enthusiastic about HD and 4K video. I've now used four 4K cameras - Sony FDRAX33, AX100, PMWZ100, and now the JVC. They are all good, especially the beautiful AX100, but...

Handy cam indeed

 

Just had the opportunity to play around with a beta firmware here in japan and loved it! Dynamic range is quite nice, it has also nice roll off of the highlights. Specific colour science, but this is a subject to change in the final version. Quite...
