The GY-LS300 comes with a Micro Four Thirds (MFT) universal lens mount, and adapters are available for PL, EF, Nikon, C and other lenses….
Besides resolution, one figure that stands out about the GY-LS300 is its suggested price of $4,395—and the street price, which is about $1,000 less.
I really appreciate the flexibility the GY-LS300 gives you to adopt any kind of lens,” he says. “I like both Canon and [Duclos] Veydra lenses, and the JVC mounting system handled them very well.” … Sanjeev Chatterjee
Can he recommend any improvements? “Sure. The camera would benefit from an additional threaded tie-down,” Herrlin says. “Also, it comes with a small viewfinder, probably to save cost. I’d like a higher resolution one, and a viewscreen that can stand up to bright outdoor sun.” … Steve Herrlin
Still needing more Panasonic Lumix GH5 exposure, as it were? One keenly anticipated aspect of the GH5 is its ability to record V-Log 10-bit 4:2:2 footage internally instead of only via an external monitor/recorder. Emmanuel Pampuri is kindly sharing some footage that can be downloaded in order to practice grading it with NLEs’ colour grading functionality or in colour grading software like BlackMagic’s DaVinci Resolve.
Mr Pampuri shot his footage with Veydra mini cinema prime lenses, “built for mirrorless cameras with Micro4/3 and S35 sensors” and with “multiple mounting options including Micro 4/3, Sony E-Mount, and C-Mount”.
Although I have yet to see Veydra lenses in the flesh, as it were, they sound like an excellent solution for making feature films and documentaries with Super 16 cameras like the GH5 and its M43 stablemates and competitors.
At time of writing, Mr Pampuri had mistakenly uploaded the footage as 8-bit 4:2:o but will be replacing that with 10-bit 4:2:2 footage soon.
