One of a kind - shooting with the JVC GY-LS300
The JVC GY-LS300 camcorder is one of a kind! This is the smallest, full-featured 4K camcorder on the market, with Super 35mm sensor, professional audio inputs and controls, and accessible switches for accessing key functions.
For those who have used high-end professional cameras, this is a like a big camera shrunk down.
Featuring a Micro Four Thirds mount, one can work with Micro Four Thirds lenses, or, via adapter use lenses from other manufacturers.
The GY-LS300 is an affordable camcorder than offers tremendous capabilities. Record 4K at 150 mbps to SDXC card, or record HD 4:2:2 internal or over SDI, or 4K to external recorder over HDMI.
The results speak, having worked with this camera for many weeks, I am happy to use this professionally, particularly in combination with the JVC GY-HM200.
MTF EFFECT 3: CANON EF LENS REMOTE SYSTEM
MTF have taken an innovative approach to making it possible to use Canon EF lenses on a range of lens mounts. Due to the electronic aperture featured on the EOS lenses, this means external aperture control is needed. With the Effect Mark 3 controller this takes place wirelessly. The results is remote aperture and focus control of Canon EF lenses from within inches of the lens up to 100 feet or more away.
This new wireless MTF Effect 3 unit communicates with the lens adapter, enabling the operator to set the aperture or focus remotely. This is compatible with all existing MTF Effect adaptors. The new control unit can be used with lens stabilisation activated.
