The free version 2.0 firmware upgrade for the GY-LS300 4KCAM handheld Super 35 camcorder and GY-HM170/200 camcorders has just been released. For the GY-LS300, the upgrade adds a ‘JVC Log’ mode that practically duplicates the look of film, plus new Cinema 4K and Cinema 2K recording modes and a unique Prime Zoom feature that uses the camera’s innovative technology to allow zoom capabilities when using prime lenses. For all three camcorders, there's now a 70-bit mode to enable 4K recording on standard Class 10 SDXC cards, a histogram, new zebra indication and a variety of live streaming changes (300 and 200 only). There’s also the ability to trigger recordings via HDMI/SDI and JVC LUT support via the Atomos Shogun external recorder.
