Panasonic’s cinema camera lineup is well positioned to serve your high-end cinema feature, episodic TV, commercial and indie film production needs. With renown color reproduction, progressive workflows and exceptional reliability, you can trust our cinema cameras with bringing your creative vision to the screen.
The Cinema VariCam line of 4K cameras has been used on a wide variety of movies, commercials, and TV programs, and is renowned for its color reproduction, look, and for bringing progressive workflows to the production industry. This technology and know-how are now invigorating a new lineup — VariCam LT, VariCam 35 and VariCam Pure. This VariCam camera lineup is joined by the 5.7K sensor EVA1 and the full-frame LUMIX S1H cinema cameras, which inherit much of the VariCam technology in a lighter, smaller camera design.
The VariCam super 35mm native 4K sensor is developed especially for capturing the celebrated cinematic VariCam colorimetry. The sensor has won the prestigious Hollywood Post Alliance Engineering Excellence Award and continues to wow post-production houses, colorists, and DPs that work with the footage day in and day out.
The ability to capture accurate colors and rich skin tones is a must for any filmmaker. The Panasonic cinema camera lineup features V-Log and V-Gamut capture to deliver high dynamic range and broad colors. V-Log has log curve characteristics that some would say are reminiscent of negative film and V-Gamut delivers a color space even larger than film, encompassing the entire BT.2020 color space, which in turn provides enough latitude and color space for HDR.
The dynamic range of the VariCam is 14+ stops with V-Log and the dynamic range of the EVA1 is 14 stops. This wide dynamic range assures accurate image rendering, particularly from the critical shadow to highlight areas, providing transitions into the highlights that are remarkable. An innovative color separation filter is optimized to offer natural color and accurate color linearity.
14+ stops of latitude lets you record and display all of the highlights as well as all of the shadows — you no longer have to choose. V-Log with V-Gamut has enough latitude and color space to allow you to capture vivid HDR. HDR and BT.2020 grading output is also available for post-production.
The Dual Native ISO capability is an absolute game changer in cinema camera technology. Developed and introduced with the VariCam 35, it allows you to capture scenes with a single candle or just practical lights without loss of dynamic range, resolution or color. Dual Native ISO provides advantages to not just the look of the footage, but also enables creative breakthroughs in lighting considerations on set or in uncontrolled environments, as well as helping to alleviate project budget or time constraints. With the VariCam's ISO 5000 (EVA1 features ISO 2500), you see more detail than the human eye at low light levels — without adding noise.
