Super-35 Sensor, lightweight and compact single-body design
VariCam LT is an ideal camera for handheld, Steadicam, jib/crane, gimbal or drone shooting applications.
Panasonic VariCam LT features a wide dynamic range of 14+ stops and expansive colour gamut. High sensitivity for 4K image acquisition is achieved thanks to the dual native ISO settings of 800 and 5000. Thanks to native 5000 ISO you can shoot clean images in very low light situations.
Stunning Image Quality
thanks to the same imager as VariCam 35, which would allow you to achieve the cinematic VariCam look.
Equipped with the super 35mm single-chip MOS sensor which offers 4K (4096 x 2160) and UHD (3840 x 2160) resolutions.
Dynamic range of 14+ stops
with wide dynamic range, VariCam LT assures authentic image rendering over the entire image and provides low-noise images without any compromise in picture quality.
Dual native ISO 800/5000
Thanks to native ISO 5000 this camera can achieve noise levels nearly identical to that seen at 800 ISO. This allows camera to record in low natural light without the need for artificial light.
- Dual Native ISO of 800/5000
- Upgrade EF mount to PL for even greater versatility in lens selection
- 2K/HD 240p Slow Motion
- Infrared Shooting (IR)
- In-camera Colour Grading
