The VariCam 35 is the new 4k 35mm format Cinematography camera from Panasonic. 4K Images with the VariCam Look The new VariCam 35 has 14+ stops of latitude and offers a wide dynamic range and color gamut approaching film cameras. The VariCam 35 is equipped with a full-size 4K image sensor. Drawing on the field angle and field depth of the PL lens, this model records video in 4K resolution. The body is ruggexd and designed for flexible setup and operation. It allows smooth and unrestricted camera work, letting creators to express their emotions through the images. Newly Developed Super 35mm 4K MOS Sensor The VariCam 35 is equipped with the super 35mm format full-size single-chip MOS sensor developed especially for this new model. It offers 4K (4096 x 2160) and UHD (3840 x 2160) resolution, and boasts high sensitivity, low noise, wide dynamic range and cinematic depth of field. The "VariCam Look" with Evolved Color Gamut and Dynamic Range The VariCam 35 is equipped with the newly developed "V-Gamut," giving it a wider color gamut than that of film. The gamma curve has evolved to "V-Log," further extending the dynamic range of the "F-REC" gamma curve, which was highly acclaimed in the original VariCam. It is capable of recording the 14+ stops of dynamic range offered by the VariCam 35, and enhances grading flexibility. The gamma curve equivalent to conventional V-REC or CINE-LIKE is newly defined as "V-709." The V-709 gamma provides a tone suitable for previewing on a monitor, and is also suitable for use in producing broadcast content such as TV commercials and TV series. 14+ Stops of Latitude The dynamic range is 14+ stops. The wide dynamic range assures accurate image rendering over the entire image area, from dark parts to highlights. Even in dimly lit scenes, which are particularly important in movie production, the VariCam 35 provides low-noise images without any compromise in picture quality. 4K-Optimized Internal Optical Filter The VariCam 35 has a high-precision internal optical filter made by bonding an optical low-pass filter and IR glass and providing it with a UV/IR-cut coating (membrane). The low-pass filter is tuned for 4K, so it eliminates aliasing and provides optimum resolution. The UV/IR-cut filter prevents ghosts and reddening in dark areas inside the camera unit. For frequently used ND filters, the compact body houses a rotary filter system with four filters (0.6ND, 1.2ND, 1.8ND, CLEAR) for easy switching. Variable frame rate recording in the range of 1 fps to 120 fps. Overcranking (slow-motion) and undercranking (quick-motion) effects are also possible. Frame rate can be adjusted while shooting. *120fps recording is to be supported by firmware upgrade This post has been promoted to an article
