JVC GY-LS300, 4K camcorder Super 35mm Sensor with Micro Four Thirds Lens Mount

Posted by Charbax – November 16, 2015

JVC GY-LS300 ($3500 at Amazon without the lens) features a JVCKENWOOD AltaSens 4K CMOS Super 35 high sensitivity image sensor combined with an industry standard Micro Four Thirds (MFT) lens mount. The single chip CMOS sensor has approximately 13.5 megapixels and achieves a standard sensitivity of ISO 400 with a total of 12 stops of exposure latitude. Super 35 Cinema lenses may be used and will retain their native angle of view. When the camera is used with MFT, Super 16 and other size lenses, JVC's proprietary Variable Scan Mapping feature will maintain the lens's native angle of view. This gives filmmakers the flexibility of using widely available MFT lenses as well as high end cinema lenses. It is also possible to attach the camera to microscopes and other devices using a MFT/C-mount adaptor. The unique combination of the MFT mount, the larger S35 image sensor and Variable Scan Mapping give the camera nearly limitless lens options.

ARM Cortex-A35

Posted by Charbax – November 13, 2015

ARM announces that 50% of the Smartphones sold in 2015 are 64bit already. This is a phenomenal success for ARM's 64bit deployment. At ARM TechCon 2015, ARM announces ARM Cortex-A35, an upgrade for ARM Cortex-A7 which is currently the most popular ARM Cortex-A core shipping in most of the current low-end to mid-range Smartphones, at 10% lower power consumption, ARM Cortex-A35 brings up to 40% higher performance compared to ARM Cortex-A7! This will bring 64bit to even more Smartphones for the entry-level to mid-range markets starting before the end of 2016. ARM Mali-470 is a good power efficient GPU to use with ARM Cortex-A35, and it can be used in big.LITTLE configurations together with ARM Cortex-A72, ARM Cortex-A57 or ARM Cortex-A53.
