JVC Professional have sent me a LS300 with V2 firmware to try out. There are at least 7 major updates plus various FTP and WiFi additions.
One of the major updated features is ground breaking…Digital Zoom via Variable Scan Mapping (VSM). This one feature alone is in my opinion what sets JVC engineers apart from the rest of the competition, other companies give you centre scan which is a 2x crop via a user button.
JVC decided to link the zoom control on the hand grip with the VSM so you can digitally zoom with a “PRIME” lens and let me tell you it works a treat…is beyond genius. There is NO and I mean NO artefacts or pixelation and best of all no reduction in f stops.
This is only one of 7 new updated features I will be covering in my LS300 update video. I am poping into Glasgow tomorrow to get most of the filming done and using the DJI Osmo for my pieces to camera with a radio mic plugged into the Ozmo.
