JVC LS300 Variable Sensor Test: https://youtu.be/UwrO4bzCxYQ LS300 Test footage: https://youtu.be/WhHKkol7SGU Low Light Test Footage: https://youtu.be/r3-jbTDiWvs Metabones adapter: https://youtu.be/VsdEbIHxUic Panasonic AG-UX180 Review: https://youtu.be/xcyMDGZ68Go Panasonic FZ2500: https://youtu.be/qglzL-BOn34 Panasonic DVX200: https://youtu.be/q3nNuQADpHU Panasonic GH5S: https://youtu.be/mG54b6Y2tXM Canon GX10: https://youtu.be/O4YLdNjCnFY 5 Things I Like: 1. Micro Four Thirds lens mount with Super 35 sensor - use any lens 2. Variable Scan Mapping - VSM sensor - adjust angle of view from Super 35, MFT, and Super 16, plus sensor zooming with zoom rocker. 3. UHD 4K 4:2:2 8-bit 60/30/24p at 150Mbps or 70Mbps in Quicktime .MOV format on SD cards UHS-1 Speed Class 3. Can also shoot Cinema 4K at 150Mbps, Cinema 2K at 50Mbps and 4:2:2 HD at 50Mbps from 60/30/24 and AVCHD. Quicktime easy to edit and playback. 4. J-Log 5. Outputs HD-SDI and HDMI outputs - HDMI 4K output. Only HD output when shooting 4K 4:2:2 internally. Outputs live streaming via USB. 5 Things I don’t Like: 1. Low Light - not good after 1600 ISO, native ISO 800 for J-Log 2. Body - cheap feeling, not weather resistant, flimsy LCD, low resolution LCD and EVF, curiously no 3.5 audio jack 3. J-Log is the only usable picture profile, others look like 10 year old video. J-Log not a lot of dynamic range. Must expose accurately.Very difficult to intercut with other cameras. 4. Autofocus - slow, LCD can’t tell focus, auto or manual, need focus external focus aids 5. Price - $2,000-$2,500. Large fairly affordable batteries. Cheap SD cards. Recommended for: Beginning filmmakers - high school, college, hobbyists Videographers/filmmakers who already own other camera bodies and lenses - use LS300 as testing device. Sit down interviews Multicam studio filming Not good for: Run and gun, event video, documentaries, narrative, sports, travel.
