The answer to delivering the best in high-end filmmaking.

v1Panasonic is set to release the new VariCam 35 and the VariCam HS. Release date is to be sometime this fall. The new Panasonic VariCam 35 and VariCam HS is in position to dominate over other cinema cameras offering unmatched tools for 4K digital cinema production. Camera is equipped with a super 35mm MOS image sensor for 4096 x 2160 (17:9) 4K image capture and presents a choice of codecs – Apple ProRes 4:4:4:4, PreRes HQ or the Panasonic AVC-ULTRA family. This camera records in 4K, UHD, 2K and HD simultaneously for superior flexibility. It provides full control over the widest lighting conditions by offering 14 stops of dynamic range delivering variable speed 4K recording up to 120fps. It also has native ISOs of 800 and 5000, with the option to set higher ISOs in the camera.

The VariCam 35 provides in-camera color grading. The powerful color management capacity allows for an extended color gamut for unmatched image fidelity and permits support for an Academy Color Encoding System (ACES) workflow for full mastery of original source material. It also allows the assignment of various LUTs to individual recording channels and camera outputs.

v2The 2/3” VariCam HS camera/recorder features real-time high frame rate and off-speed recording to 240fps in 1080p for SFX slow-motion applications. The VariCam HS utilizes 1920 x 1080p 3MOS imagers with 14 stops of latitude to provide you full control over a wide range of lighting conditions for unparalleled 1080p native recording/operation. The camera features a range of high-quality recording formats including AVC-Intra Class 100 (recording as 1080/24p, 25, 30p, 50 or 60p with VFR up to 240p), AVC-Intra Class 200 (up to 30p/60i) and 12-bit sampled  AVC-Intra Class 4:4:4 (up to 30p).

Both cameras feature an original two-piece design. The 4K and 2/3” camera heads are separate from but dock-able to the common, shared recording module. This enables you to switch between S35mm and 2/3” camera heads to best suit your creative assignment, allowing “box” camera functionality for jibs, cranes and other remote camera needs.
