Nigel Wilkes from Panasonic UK explains the advantages and features of the Varicam during the IBC 2014 show.
Panasonic utilised IBC 2014 to launch the much anticipated Varicam, the star of a wide range of products and innovations that will make film and TV production significantly easier.
The Varicam retains the clever modular design first introduced at NAB in Las Vegas, as the third generation Varicam arrives in two new variants, the super35mm, 4K Varicam 35, and the 2/3 type, high speed HD Varicam HS.
Andre Meterian, Director of Panasonic’s Professional Camera division, said, “Inherited from original Varicam, the Varicam 35 features a V-Log gamma to cover a wide latitude – an impressive 14+ stops.
“What is more, the ability to simultaneously record in two different formats and codecs together with its in-camera colour grading function means, for instance, that it is possible to record 4K master and HD simultaneously and begin colour grading on site. This will greatly help production companies to streamline their workflows.”
He continues, “Varicam HS will provide smooth slow motion effects, by recording in 240fps HD, without a cache memory.”
