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.
