Panasonic VariCam 35/HS Camera Simulator

Haven't been able to get your hands on a new VariCam 35 yet? Or curious about the fastest frame rate and highest codec you can do in V-RAW? Panasonic just released a VariCam Camera Simulator for their VariCam 35, VariCam 35 with Codex V-RAW recorder, and VariCam HS. This is a great tool to familiarize yourself with the VariCam's functions before a shoot, troubleshoot a question from on set, or simply study up on the camera's functionality.

The simulator allows you to familiarize yourself with the camera's menu, giving you the opportunity to test the main functions. This includes the push buttons, as well as the rotary dial to choose between menu options, just like on the operator side of the camera. You can change frame rates, switch into variable frame rates, change main and sub codecs, and even go into the paint settings of the camera. The simulator even has a record light indicator.

Whether you're a camera assistant, DIT, or rental house technician, knowing the menu system of the camera on each job is expected, yet very time consuming given how many cameras there are on the market. It can often be very difficult to remember where to find a specific setting. The VariCam Simulator can help with this, so be sure to check it out. Screen Shot 2016-01-07 at 7.45.59 PM

The VariCam LT has the same function, but with just a 4K or HD master and a proxy recording.
