JVC announced the GY-LSX1 at NAB 2014, a full-sized shoulder-mount camera with a Super 35mm-sized sensor and PL mount. Clearly aimed at the professional market, the design of the camera reflects JVC’s desire to deliver a 4K camera in a form factor comfortable to working professionals, while incorporating input from cinematographers and camera operators. This is evident in the addition of accessory mounting rosettes on the body, threaded 15mm rod ports, and the built-in handle and shoulder pad.
The heart of the camera is the JVC-designed Super 35 sensor, which supports DCI and UHD (4096 x 2160 and 3840 x 2106) formats at up to 60 fps, 1920 x 1080 HD at 120 fps, and 1280 x 780 at up to 1260 fps. While paying attention to the image-capture capabilities, JVC has not ignored the audio, building in support for four audio channels. The camera records internally to UHS-I U3-compliant SDHC/SDXC media cards. Although the camera is still under development, JVC is already using the same sensor to capture 4K footage using smaller-form-factor cameras.
