So, I guess the GY-LSX2 is the camera that would be of interest to this crowd.

Hand held camcorder with an interchangeable lens. I would guess that it would cost something in the $1.5-2K range.

I bet it cost more than $2K.

Maybe not. Not having to include a lens should reduce the price considerably, so you would be looking at GH4 pricing levels.

But, on the other hand, the handle might bump it up I suppose. If the handle is an optional add on, then it functionally is no different from a AX100, but without the lens. In that case it would likely be under 2K.

The GW-SPLS1 looks interesting as a sort of home studio sort of camera as well.

I'd assume JVC has abandoned their whacky 4 HD streams=1 4K output methodology. Talk about non-starters. Try to find a UHD TV that accepts 4 HD, HDMI quadrant outputs and can then assemble them into a coherent 4K video. Good luck with that. wink.gif

But I'm sure this will be 4K via one single HDMI output.

These cameras have HDMI 2.0, so that should be enough for the data throughput on a single link.

Yup, that's why I said what I did.

It's too bad we have HDMI instead of DisplayPort since it's much faster and V1.3 will support 8K @ 32.4 Gbit/s .

LSX2 looks nice. Hopefully JVC has finally fixed its crappy image stabilizer.

No deal. OTOH, if it has 1080p60 (and all other framerates) @ 10-bit 4:2:2 then it could be a great HD camera.

Would never buy a 4K camera just for HD, but everyone is different. We're moving in to a 4K world. smile.gif

Since it is an interchangeable lens camera, they will probably be relying mostly on your lens to do that.

It'll be under $5,000 according to JVC. Hopefully it'll have 2160 60p if it;s anywhere near close to that price.

Why would they put a m4/3rds mount with a S-35 ( APS-C) sensor ? JVC is so out to lunch.

I actually asked them about that because I was very confused. One of them didn't understand what I was saying while another agreed that their could be a crop. My theory is that its eighter a crop or that the chip is really M43 sized.

Maybe the mount could somehow be removable so that you can use different ones.

They are prototypes, estimated for a 2015 release, so probably very rough mockups that don't actually work.

My guess is that they are using the same sensor in all the cameras for development work, which is why the two smaller ones have the larger sensor even though it doesn't make sense. Chances are they will use smaller versions of the sensor in the final products (assuming they ever see the light of day).

Since they are all using the same sensor (and probably the same processor), chances are that all three of them will be able to do 4k at 60P.
