JVC’s first 4K movie cameras include one for flying drones

JVC's 4K aerial drone camera

JVC wants into the digital moviemaking business, and it’s kicking things off in style with a quartet of 4K camera prototypes that illustrate its cinematic ambitions. The highlight is the GW-GBLS1 (shown here), a gimbal-mounted Super 35mm camera designed for aerial drones; it can both shoot overhead 4K footage and stream live video to the ground. There’s also the GW-SPLS1, a remote-controlled miniature 4K camera for trickier shots. More conventional cinematographers should be happy, too. The GY-LSX1 puts 4K and super slow-motion 240p video into a shoulder-mounted camera, while the GY-LSX2 stuffs the LSX1′s sensor into a camcorder that uses Micro Four Thirds lenses. JVC hasn’t said if or when these particular cameras will reach studios, but we wouldn’t count on the aerial model reaching the US without legal clarity regarding commercial drone flights.
