The JVC GY-LS300 – is it the video world’s best-kept secret? Check the specs: – 4K Super-35mm sensor, Micro Four-Thirds (MFT) mount, built in ND filters, XLR audio sockets, priced under US$3000.

With the MFT mount, virtually every lens ever made can be attached (with the corresponding adapter) to this camera. Not only that, it offers a unique feature called Variable Sensor Mapping (VSM), which allows you to scale the active area of the sensor to match the lens you’re using. So, if you have some old C-mount 16mm lenses lying around, you can fit those and shrink the active area of the Super-35mm sensor down to the size of a 16mm film frame! If you have full-frame 35mm lenses, you can attach those and use VSM to provide a digital zooming capability – even with prime lenses!
