It's a camcorder with 4K capabilities, but I don't really care about 4K. I just want a camcorder that can do 10-bit, 4:2:2 sampling & is HD.
I've been trying to find out whether the LS300 can output 10-bit video (through either the SDI or HDMI via external recorder), but have been unable to find anything concrete on the matter. Some say it can't, but I don't know if they mean it can't output 4K at 10-bit, or whether it can't even do it with HD.

In the comments' section on the LS300's trailer video 'Heist', the creator of the video says it can indeed output 10-bit HD video via external recorder: (It is in a reply to someone called Sammy S, & again hinted at in a reply to Michael Lafuente).

This is the only source I could find that claimed this. I just want to find a second one.

Additionally, if it can, what would be the best external recorder for the job?

When I first looked at one it was eight bit only, and I'm not aware of things having changed.
