Panasonic AU-V35C1G Varicam Super-35mm 4K Camera Head

Super 35mm MOS sensor for 4096 x 2160 4K image capture

The VariCam 35's (AU-V35C1) superb image handling in multiple formats including 4K, UHD, 2K and HD make it an unparalleled tool for high-end filmmaking, commercials and episodic production as well as live 4K events. With an expanse of formats ranging from flawless 4K RAW output to more practical 4K, UHD, 2K and HD capture, the VariCam 35 when combined with the AVC-ULTRA codecs for 4K enables very manageable and practical 4K production file sizes.

The VariCam 35 utilizes a new Panasonic super 35mm MOS sensor for 4096 x 2160 (17:9) 4K image capture; this imager boasts an impressive 14+ stops of latitude and faithfully captures high-contrast, wide dynamic range imagery without compromise. Powerful colour management capabilities provide a much extended colour gamut for impeccable image fidelity and permit support for an Academy Colour Encoding System (ACES) workflow for full fidelity mastering of original source material.

Lesser products cannot compete with the sheer image quality of the VariCam's 14-stop full 4K sensor. Nor can they offer the versatility of a modular system that allows users to switch between the VariCam 35 front end and the VariCam HS for high speed HD recording and use of versatile B4 ENG lenses. Other clever innovations include the ability to record internally in three different formats - 4K, HD and HD proxy - each with a different LUT; this will be of enormous benefit to cinematographers.
