Compact in size, light in weight - yet producing stunning image quality - Panasonic's VariCam LT yields outstanding results. With advanced grading tools, in-camera dailies and proxy recording capabilities that are built into the VariCam LT you'll also experience an improvement in streamlining your workflow.
The VariCam LT (SKU: AU-V35LT1G) has a compact and lightweight six-pound magnesium body and offers the same picture quality specifications as the larger VariCam 35 cinema camera. You'll be able to capture true 4K footage, making it ideal for handheld, Steadicam, jib, crane, gimbal, and drone shooting applications, as well as cinéma vérité-style filmmaking. The VariCam LT offers a host of features, including an EF lens mount, hot-swappable batteries, IR shooting capability, a 23.98 PsF output, cinema-style file naming, and scene files.
Other highlights of the VariCam LT include a workflow that is very similar to that of the VariCam 35 - so you'll 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, you'll have access to an in-camera color grading function and support for AVC-Intra 4K and Apple ProRes*2 codecs. The super 35mm image sensor, which is the same imager as VariCam 35, features a wide dynamic range, an expansive color gamut, and high sensitivity for 4K image acquisition. It has 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.
Another attractive feature of the VariCam LT is the EF lens*1 mount which offers a wide array of lens choices. The EF mount*1 can be removed by an end user and replaced with a PL mount (optional). This allows for even greater versatility in lens selection when shooting with the VariCam LT.
