First Look: Panasonic VariCam LT

Panasonic recently announced their new VariCam LT. This little brother to the VariCam 35 is more compact and designed for run-and-gun operation.

The camera has many of the same features as the 35, including a sensor with 14+ stops of dynamic range, and unique Dual ISO mode. The recording options are also similar, featuring recording in AVC-Ultra up to 4K, and in Apple ProRes formats for HD. The camera also has all of the remote color management options found in the 35, including the ability to remotely load and create LUTs in camera.

What I especially like about the camera is just how well it is built. The layout and build quality make it perfect for a wide variety of shooting scenarios. Check out my video above to learn more about the camera and how to get it set up and ready for production.

As we've done for so many cameras before, we're back again with more scene files. This time I've tackled the new VariCam LT, matching looks to our tried and true JR45CINE and JR45VID (I even used an HPX2700 to match back to), as well as a high saturation look, and even an ALEXA look.

The Panasonic VariCam 35 has been called the "workflow camera," as it offers multiple internal recording formats that can really speed up your workflow. The camera can capture a 4K or HD V-Log master, while at the same time recording both HD and proxy for instant dailies. The VariCam LT has the same function, but with just a 4K or HD master and a proxy recording.
