Press Release - Osaka (February 11, 2016)

Panasonic has extended its cinema line up with the addition of the VariCam LT, a lightweight, compact camera, offering many of the features of the 4K VariCam 35.

The camera retains the ability to shoot in both 4K (4096 x 2160) and UHD (3840 x 2160) and features high sensitivity, low noise, wide dynamic range and a cinematic depth of field.

In order to maintain the VariCam ‘look', the VariCam LT is equipped with a 35mm single-chip MOS sensor, originally developed for the VariCam 35 and has a same wide dynamic range. This ensures accurate image rendering over the entire image, from dark areas to highlights.

This sensor has two native ISO settings of 800 and 5000. Having two dedicated analog circuits means much higher sensitivity without increased noise.

In addition the VariCam LT offers the ability to change the mount from an EF mount*1 (standard) to a PL mount (optional), increasing the range of usable lenses.

The ‘V-Gamut' in the VariCam LT gives the camera a wider colour gamut than traditional film. The ‘V-Log' gamma curve has evolved further to extend the dynamic range to 14+ stops.

Capable of 60fps in 4K, the camera also has a new sensor center crop mode, allowing 240fps for slow motion in both HD and 2K.

It is also cost efficient in both operation and workflow due to in-camera colour grading, AVC-Ultra codec and multiple recording formats (4K/UHD/2K/HD proxy).

The VariCam LT supports both Panasonic and third party viewfinders and comes with a number of optional extras including shoulder mount, grip and PL mount. The camera is available from March 2016.
