  1. @mirekti whoa! The PD is plenty faster!! I wonder how the iOS version fares.
  2. Reminds me of the attitude most displayed when JVC released the GYLS300. Just writing it off because it’s not the usual suspect in cinema cameras. Sharp may surprise us with something special, or it may be another product with undelivered promises. Either way it’s a step forward to bigger and better tools.
  3. Z-Cam is a company that is going to disrupt some concepts in the cinema camera industry. After NAB, there should be some insight for many cinematographers on what gear to invest in. Z-Cam and their offerings will be on the short list for these individuals, including myself.
  4. Interesting! Does this interfere with any of its external video functions?
  5. Why does the footage look like it still needs desqueezing?
  6. I actually made one before this challenge. The only thing is I don’t have the BTS for it. We filmed this in less than three hours at Youtube Studios in Manhattan and I edited it in about thirty minutes because everything was shot in sequence. Could I share?
  7. Interesting! If the video specs are ideal, this may be my first full framer!
  8. It’s so funny that I was literally thinking that same thing! If we just flooded the JVC Facebook page and ask for the updated GYLS300!!! Lol I’m serious.
  9. Yea 150 mb in 4k is also pretty decent. I would say that I filmed most of it with the internal codec and the remainder in Pro Res using the BlackMagic Video Assist 4K.
  10. The JVC GYLS300 in 2019 is still very much relevant! It is so relevant that I’m wrapping up a documentary that is 90 percent filmed with it. Not diminishing the importance of this medium, but this isn’t a “Micro Documentary” that will be released on YouTube. It’ll be a feature length documentary that will have some historical merit within Hip Hop and Pop culture in general!! If it wasn’t for the ease of use and IQ of Gyls300, I truly would have had some difficulty capturing the moments I tried to highlight. I know it’s an older tool, but the technology is still useful and any skilled camera op, would be able to make this camera shine!
  11. Here’s a screen grab from an interview I filmed with the Gyls300 in Delaware.
  12. @kye I agree wholeheartedly! Regarding the Gyls300 VSM, that is one of the more useful features this camera has! I truly hope that JVC brings out a successor to this sleeper hit camera. To me, the color science is superb and that Alta Sens sensor is something special!
  13. Yes I’m super aware that the Gyls300 has broadcast ready codecs, but the distribution network I’m using for the project I’m working on, requires certain requisites. The similarities of these cameras are of course the form factor, built in ND’s, manual buttons for camera settings, ease of use, very usable mic pre’s, image quality, crappy monitor lol and good battery life! The differences are the codecs, lens mounts, VSM only on the Gyls300 and the type of storage for internal 4k DCI. For the Panasonic you need a very fast SD card to gain that option. The MFT offers full coverage of the super 35 sensor and is the perfect mount to attach almost any type of lenses! If need be, you can also easily attach a microscope to it! Then use the VSM feature to adjust the image to prevent vignetting!
  14. Thanks! I really thought I was not going to capture any decent footage. The young man was just too fast. Lol. Considering that I also fly a Panasonic Eva1 and a few other cameras, I just always seem to grab the Gyls300! I enjoy using it because it’s simple to use. Some of the things that make me grab it before the others is the battery life and the codec, which allows me to use humble SD cards. These cards don’t have to be the fastest, yet I’m allowed to shoot DCI 4k! I also enjoy the VSM (variable scan mapping) feature, which essentially turns my primes into zooms, with no loss of quality. One of the features that I never worried about , but is now a de facto necessity for whatever camera I ever consider getting and that is the built in ND filter! For this shoot I opted to film in HD 60p instead of the internal slow mo, to limit the crop and the loss of a stop. As I mentioned earlier I also own various cameras and the only reason I bought the Panasonic Eva1 is because it reminds me of the JVC, but with a more robust codec, which I intend to utilize only because the medium for which I’m releasing the project on requires it. If not for that fact, I would be using the Gyls300 all day! Thanks again!
