Overview

Overview

The Panasonic VariCam LT 4K Super 35mm Cinema Camera features outstanding image quality and advanced grading tools, in-camera dailies and proxy recording capabilities. The VariCam LT has a compact and lightweight magnesium body and offers the same picture quality specifications as the larger VariCam 35 camera. The super 35mm image sensor, which is the same imager as VariCam 35, features wide dynamic range, an expansive color gamut, and high sensitivity for 4K image acquisition. 

The VariCam LT features a dual native ISO settings of 800 and 5000; the native 5000 ISO allows for clean shooting in very low light situations. Its size and design facilitate a wide array of shooting styles including comfortable ergonomic shoulder mounted operation, or use on gimbals and drones. A new feature that has been added to the VariCam LT is the EF lens mount* which offers a wide array of lens choices. The EF mount can be removed by the user and replaced with a PL mount (optional, not included). This allows for even greater versatility in lens selection when shooting with the VariCam LT.

The VariCam LT workflow is very similar to that of the VariCam 35. Both cameras have a dual codec recording function that allows the user to record a primary or "main" codec, as well as a smaller proxy file. In addition, each camera offers an in-camera color grading function and support for AVC-Intra 4K and Apple ProRes** codecs. 

Panasonic does not guarantee the compatibility or performance of all EF lenses

Firmware Updates Ver. 6.0

Panasonic VariCam LT Ver. 6.0 Firmware provides broadcast shading and multi-camera control, plus tally and return video management. Employ the cinematic look and low-light performance of your VariCam LT in your live production recordings with CineLive Workflows.

The VariCam LT Ver. 6.0 Download is free to all registered VariCam LT owners.

Why CineLive with VariCam LT benefits your event or live production shoot:

  • Deliver VariCam image quality and color science to multi-camera environments
  • Create cinematic shallow depth of field with VariCam's award-winning Super 35mm sensor
  • Capture with 14+ stops of dynamic range
  • Shoot with Dual Native 800/5,000 ISOs
  • Record brilliant images in low-light environments
  • Compensate for stop loss when shooting with long zooms and ⅔-inch optical adapters

 

This Firmware Update provides you with (2) new ways to shoot:

Live Broadcast

  • Cover sports, concerts and more
  • Control multiple VariCam LTs and shade color remotely
  • Run silent with live-mode fan setting
  • Output dual live signals: one clean for broadcast and recording; one for status check, markers and menus
  • Output via fiber using third-party transport systems (DTS, ERECA, Multidyne, Telecast and more)

Near-Live

  • Record live performances (theater, sitcoms, concerts, stand-up, fashion) that aren't broadcast live
  • Shade color and switch live between multiple VariCam LTs
  • Stream live, color-shaded footage to projectors and displays in the venue
  • Record in 4K or HD 4:4:4 in AVC-Ultra or ProRes internally on each VariCam LT and match back to the live switch

 

VariCam LT ver. 6.0 offers and supports (2) color workflows:

Broadcast Color Shading

Uses paint settings (black, white, chromas, iris, gain, etc.) to ensure the picture stays consistent across multiple cameras. 

Cinematic Color Grading

Uses LUTs (Look Up Tables) and CDLs (Color Decision Lists) to manage color in-camera and create a precise color palette across all the shots that go into a feature.

 

These color workflow options allow you to shade livestream footage via remote control, capture V-Log in-camera, and grade color live in-camera and via your computer, all at the same time.

 

Panasonic AU‐XP0256BG ExpressP2 Card - 256GB transmits up to 10 Gbps data transfer speeds and supports 4K high-speed and high frame rate recording. The ExpressP2 memory card feature an error correction capability equivalent to the RAID system, which restores sector/page error data that cannot be corrected with ordinary flash memory. 

Panasonic put these cards through their paces during initial product testing. The ExpressP2 card withstands a durability of approximately 30,000 insertion and removal cycles. 

This individual card helps you better manage post production workflow and your internal operations since it comes with an individual serial number, bar code, and write-protect switch.

The Panasonic AU-VCVF20GJ OLED Viewfinder is the successor to the highly acclaimed AU-VCVF10G VariCam Viewfinders. The addition of a newly developed 1080p OLED panel has enabled a high-definition (1920 x 1080) display, combined with low latency and sharp, accurate colors. A large-diameter 38mm eyepiece lens and wide field angle, with viewfinder magnification of 0.78x, provide comfortable viewing with Panasonic's unique optical zoom lens inside the viewfinder. Versatile exposure assist and focus assist tools are also featured. 

 

The Panasonic AU-VSHL2 Cinema Style Shoulder Mount is a modular, cinema style shoulder mount for the Panasonic VariCam LT digital cinema camera which can double as a baseplate on your tripod. The AU-VSHL2 features front and rear 15mm LWS rod clamps, ARRI-style Rosettes on left and right sides, and a sliding quick-release system to disengage the shoulder mount from the camera body and to adjust forward/aft positioning.

A standard mount interface (for your VCT-14 tripod) is included on this shoulder mount, along with a padded shoulder support for comfort. Convenient 3/8"-16 threads allow attachment of most standard QR wedge or dovetail plates. A 3/8"-16 mounting screw is included for attaching your camera rig to a tripod. 

Attach optional grips (Panasonic AU-VGRP1G or 3rd-party handgrips) to your VariCam LT camera using the integrated ARRI-style Rosettes.

 

The Panasonic AU-VGRP1 Operating Grip is an ARRI-style, rosette-mounted handgrip for the Panasonic VariCam LT. The AU-VGRP1 features a REC run/stop button, aperture adjustment dial which is positioned for easy index finger operation, (2) assignable user buttons, and an ARRI-style rosette mount for attaching the grip to the AU-VSHL2 or AU-VSHL1 Shoulder Mount.

Features:

  • Record Run/Stop Button
  • Index Finger Aperture Adjustment Dial
  • 2x Assignable User Buttons
  • ARRI-style Rosette Mount
  • Rugged construction & ergonomic design

 

The Panasonic AU-VMPL1 PL Lens Mount for VariCam LT is an optional, interchangeable precision lens mount for use of PL cinema lenses with the Panasonic VariCam LT digital cinema camera. 

NOTE: Replaces the native EF-Mount of the VariCam LT (included).

 

The Panasonic AU-XPD1P expressP2 Drive features (1) card slot, compatible with expressP2, standard P2 and microP2 memory cards (with the use of the AJ-P2AD1 microP2 adapter; not included). This reader is equipped with (2) USB 3.0 Type B interfaces, one for fast data transfer and the other for line power via computer, eliminating the need for an external power adapter (however, an AC Adapter is provided for use with computer systems lacking sufficient USB ports).

The USB 3.0 interface will facilitate rapid offload of material from the expressP2 card at speeds up to 2.4Gbps, or up to 1.2Gbps for standard ‘F’ series P2 cards. This improved performance makes the AU-XPD1 a faster alternative than the USB 2.0 AJ-PCD2 P2 card drive. The AU-XPD1P is compatible with Windows 8.1, 8, 7 and MAC OSX 10.7, 10.8, 10.9 operating systems, and offers a secure Content Protection System (CPS).
