JVC 4K CAMCORDERS NOW AVAILABLE

The highly anticipated new 4KCAM product line from JVC is finally available for purchase, offering a lot of grunt and a variety of choices for both professional filmmakers and videographers.

The range includes GY-LS300CHE, which is a handheld 2K/4K CMOS Super 35mm camcorder, with 4K UHD capture at 150 Mbps 24p/30p (to non-proprietary SDXC cards), an MFT mount and Variable Scan Mapping for use with Super 16 and other sized lenses.  The 2K/4K GW-SP100E mini remote camera head and recorder, features similar specs to its bigger brother but with a 4K UHD capture at 4:2:2 150 Mbp 50/60p.

The GY-HM200E is a 4K camcorder with HD streaming capable of 4K UHD at 150 Mbps 24p/30p (to non-proprietary SDXC cards); 8-bit 4:2:2 Full HD (50Mbps) with a 1/2.3-inch BSI CMOS chip. The compact GY-HM170E delivers 4K Ultra HD images in an economical, palm-sized camera with professional features.

According to Quinto’s Noel Oakes, “The 4KCAM camcorder product line is the ideal choice for all cinematographers, webcasters and broadcasters, corporate and live event production teams and independent filmmakers. It offers users an extremely economical path to 4K whilst enabling them to use the equipment for today’s HDTV production.

All the new cameras feature dual SDHC/SDXC card slots for dual, backup and continuous recording. The camcorders also include a 3.5-inch LCD display and 1.56 megapixel colour viewfinder, each with smart focus assist functions, and offer two-channel audio recording. And although both the GY-LS300CHE and GW-SP100E use the same Super 35mm sensor, MFT mount and JVC codec, the GW-SP100E is in a completely new product category for JVC”.
