“We’re pleased to add the new Panasonic VariCam 35 camera, customized with Panavision Modular Accessories, to our fleet.” said EVP of Global Sales & Marketing Bob Harvey. “Offering this new camera builds on our history of supporting the filmmaker with the latest creative tools to further enhance their story telling capabilities. Panavision carries a full portfolio of state of the art digital cameras at all our facilities around the world, creating continuity no matter where filmmakers choose to shoot.”
Panasonic’s VariCam 35 is a tool for high-end filmmaking, commercials and episodic production as well as live 4K events. The camera provides superb image handling in multiple formats ranging from pristine 4K RAW to more practical 4K, UHD, 2K, HD and HD ProRes capture.
Several assets set the VariCam 35 apart from other high-end cinematography cameras, including dual native ISOs of 800 and 5000, allowing DPs to realize incredible image quality in extremely low light situations; its ability to record three simultaneous video formats (4K + 2K + Proxy, or UHD + HD + Proxy); an optional high-speed 4K uncompressed RAW recorder (CODEX) that will capture uncompressed 4K VariCam RAW (V-RAW) at up to 120fps; internal AVC-Intra 4K / 2K / HD recording to 120fps; support for an ACES workflow for full fidelity mastering of original source material; and in-camera Color-Grading via CDLs / 3D LUTs.
