Chicago’s Daufenbach Camera Brings Panasonic’s Varicam 35 4K Camera/Recorder to the Midwest

Motion picture rental house Daufenbach Camera  has added the VariCam® 35 4K camera/recorder to its equipment roster.

“When we first saw the presentation that showcased the VariCam 35’s dual native 800/5000 ISO, we were all very impressed,” said Director of Operations Lawrence Daufenbach.” The ability to shoot at 5000 ISO natively is an incredible tool for filmmakers working in low light environments.”

“Having the ability to record at multiple resolutions at the same time is a huge time saver on set as it eliminates the need to transcode for post, plus allows a production to have 2K or proxy files for dailies or quick editing while retaining a pristine 4K master,” Daufenbach added. “My favorite feature is the ability to wirelessly live color grade a LUT with the Pomfort Livegrade software as well as the Livegrade Air app.

“Daufenbach Camera is committed to carrying full 4K format solutions and staying future-forward with all our camera purchases, and the VariCam 35 has the technical specs/advanced production workflow and design that align with that mentality.”

On Thursday, May 21, Panasonic and Daufenbach Camera will host a free, in-depth workshop on shooting techniques for the VariCam 35.
