Panasonic Varicam LT Massive 50+ Minute Review by Ben Meredith1 min readReading Time: < 1 minute
The latest Super 35 4K camera from Panasonic ““ the mighty Varicam LT has been getting onto more and more productions ever since it started shipping towards the end of March. For those yet not familiar with the more compact and “one-piece” Varicam LT shares the same Super 35 sized CMOS sensor as the larger Varicam 35 giving out 14 stops dynamic range, however unlike the Varicam 35, the Varicam LT is now a one-piece design (the Varicam 35 has a separate sensor head and recording module) thus making it more suitable for single shooters from an ergonomics perspective. Much like the its bigger bro the Varicam 35, the Varicam LT can record 4K in a 10bit 422 codec, but up to 60fps (the Varicam 35 goes up to 120fps and also does 4444 in 4K, which the LT does not), however when in 2K resolution, the slow-motion has been upgraded to 240fps on the LT (Varicam 35 is up to 120fps).
The Panasonic Varicam LT also features that unique to the Varicam Dual Native ISO feature (800 and 5,000), which basically enables the cameras to shoot in very light starved environments without a huge image noise penalty. Check out some amazing low-light night footage from the LT here.
