The Panasonic VariCam LT, a compact, one-piece cinema camcorder that's lightweight and affordable. The LT has a compact and lightweight magnesium body and offers the same picture quality specifications as the larger VariCam 35 cinema camera. The super 35mm image sensor, which is the same imager as VariCam 35, features wide dynamic range, an expansive color gamut, and high sensitivity for 4K image acquisition. It has dual native ISO settings of 800 and 5000. The native 5000 ISO allows for clean shooting in very low light situations. Its size, wieght and design facilitate a wide array of shooting styles including comfortable ergonomic shoulder mounted operation or stripped down for use on gimbals, Steadicams and drones.
The VariCam LT workflow is very similar to that of the VariCam 35. Both cameras have a dual codec recording function that allows the user to record a primary or “main” codec as well as a smaller proxy file. In addition, each camera offers an in-camera color grading function and support for AVC-Intra 4K and Apple ProRes codecs.
