- What's included?
The Panasonic Varicam 35 (or V35 as it's sometimes called) is a workhorse of a digital cinema camera that produces images unlike any other camera.
"It can basically see in the dark..."
The VariCam 35 delivers two native ISO settings (800 and 5000) to achieve high sensitivity and low noise. Two dedicated analog circuits are implemented on each pixel of the imager for dual native ISO before gain processing. This achieves the required high sensitivity and improves low-light shooting by maintaining a realistic mood. With a full-size sensor, the VariCam 35 can record in 4K (4096x2160) and UHD (3840x2160). It also supports AVC-Intra2K444/422 for 2K recording and AVC-Intra444/422/200/100 for HD recording.
This camera records approximately 180 minutes of 4K 4:2:2/24p video, 24-bit/48kHz/4-channel high-quality audio, and metadata. Variable frame rate recording falls in the range of 1fps to 120fps. Both Overcranking (slow-motion) and undercranking (quick-motion) effects are possible, plus the frame rate can be adjusted while shooting.
In camera color grading (3D LUT/CDL) is possible with either the VariCam 35 control panel or 3rd party software. With two independent recorders (Main Recorder and Sub-Recorder), you can record in two formats and codecs and select from V-Log/V-709/Grading. This delivers an ungraded V-Log/4K master and a graded HD daily file can be captured simultaneously. This provides main data for production purposes, plus an HD file for broadcast or preview. All files contain common metadata.
This camera has made it onto the list of approved cameras that Netflix put out for it's original content. Because of this, there has been increased interest in the camera and it has been used on many of your favorite movies and shows.
