When used with a MFT prime lens, the image can be adjusted between the maximum scan area and minimum scan area using the camera’s zoom rocker, delivering a 2.3x maximum zoom for HD or 1.25x maximum zoom for 4K. Of course, it can also be used as a lens extender for actual zoom lenses like the Lumix 45-175 zoom lens.
Other new additions include a histogram display; a colour matrix adjustment; a new spot meter for setting exposure values; a black paint setting to precisely adjust colour temperature of master black; JVC LUT support via the Atomos Shogun external recorder; a 2:1/1:1 zoom for critical focus; and a 70Mbps recording mode that makes it possible to record 4K onto economical Class 10 SDHC/SDXC memory cards.
