This B&H kit combines Panasonic's Varicam LT with Panasonic's OLED EVF, pairing two powerful pieces of technology. The camera features a Super 35-sized sensor with two distinct native ISO ratings. With 14 stops of dynamic range and the capability of using EF and PL mount lenses (separate PL mount required), the Varicam LT is suitable for handheld and studio work.
Designed to work with the Varicam LT, the OLED viewfinder features a variety of advanced functions, menu and navigation buttons, as well as an indexed diopter adjustment range. All the hardware required to mount it to your camera is included with the EVF.
Panasonic's Cinema VariCam LT 4K S35 is a single Super 35-sized sensor digital cinema camera with a lightweight magnesium body and interchangeable lens mount. It shares the same sensor as the Varicam 35, which features dual native ISO ratings of 800 and 5000. The camera is capable of capturing 14-stops of dynamic range when using V-Log and recording up to 60 fps at 4K, and up to 240 fps at 2K.
You can record your footage to high-data-rate files using the camera's built-in expressP2 card slot (expressP2 cards not included) while simultaneously recoding proxy files to the camera's SD card slot. The proxy files can incorporate color grading changes that the high-resolution files do not, making it easy for post to see your intent, without baking the look into your high-quality, camera-original files. The camera features selectable gamma curves, allowing you to get the most out of the sensor. It supports recording using AVC-Intra, AVC-Intra 4K, and Apple ProRes codecs. The 3.5" control panel can function as an LCD screen or be used to control the camera's functions.
- The lens mount is made of stainless steel and designed to prevent flange back deviation due to temperature changes.
- The camera body is made of strong, rigid magnesium.
- The top and bottom panels have been made flat for easy installation of various plates and accessories.
- Mounting holes are provided on both sides as well as on the handle for convenient mounting of accessories.
The Electronic HD Color View Finder for VariCam LT supports 1080p, 1080PsF, and 1080i video resolutions via SDI. It features an adjustable diopter range of -3.6 to +1.4, which makes it well suited for many different camera operators. You can access focus peaking as well as waveform (in single color and parade). The View Finder also allows you to zoom in on the image to check focus. Two user-assignable function buttons allow you to quickly access oft-used functions. The display also features both a red and green tally indicator, active when the camera is recording/in standby or when a tally signal is received.
