Panasonic ships new VariCams!

Panasonic VariCam HS S35 35mm photoPanasonic announced the immediate availability of its highly-anticipated VariCam models, the VariCam 35 and VariCam HS. The VariCam 35's superb image handling in multiple formats ranging from pristine 4K RAW to more practical 4K, UHD, 2K, HD and ProRes capture formats make it an unparalleled tool for high-end filmmaking, commercials and episodic production as well as live 4K events. With high-speed 1080p image capture of up to 240 fps, the companion 2/3" VariCam HS produces extraordinary high-definition imagery for the most demanding documentary, sports or SFX slow-motion applications. The VariCam 35 and VariCam HS incorporate an innovative design whereby the 4K and 2/3" camera heads are separate from but dockable to the common, shared recording module, enabling professionals to switch between S35 and B4 camera heads to best suit their creative needs. This system flexibility can be expanded with an umbilical cable between the S35 4K camera and the AVC-ULTRA recorder, providing "box" camera functionality for jibs, cranes and other remote camera needs. Both models feature a removable control panel to facilitate real-time control and easy menu access when the camera is in a fixed or remote position. They offer a production-tough aluminum alloy body to assure durability and reliability in the most challenging shooting locations. The VariCam 35 utilizes a new Panasonic Super 35mm MOS sensor for 4096 x 2160 (17:9) 4K image capture; this imager when combined with the AVC-ULTRA codecs for 4K enables very manageable and practical 4K production file sizes. The new imager boasts an impressive 14+ stops of latitude, and faithfully captures high-contrast, wide dynamic range imagery without compromise. Through a strategic product development alliance with Codex Digital, Panasonic also plans to deliver a high-speed 4K uncompressed RAW recorder for the VariCam 35 camera. This dedicated recorder will capture uncompressed 4K VariCam RAW (V-RAW) at up to 120 fps, bolstering the VariCam 35's suitability for high-end cinema applications. Professional interfaces include 4x 3G-HD-SDI for 4K quad output; an HD-SDI out for monitoring (down-converted from 4K); a dedicated VF HD-SDI output complete with all of the EVF status and display data; and two XLR inputs to record four channels of 24-bit, 48 kHz audio. The VariCam 35 features a standard 35mm PL mount and uses Panasonic's new expressP2 card for high frame rate and 4K recording. The camera is equipped with a total of four memory card slots. The VariCam 35 has a suggested list price of $55,000 US; the VariCam HS has a suggested list price of $46,000 US. Both prices include the AU-V35C1G S35 4K or AU-V23HS1G 2/3" 1080p camera head, plus the AU-VREC1G common recorder, AU-VCVF1G OLED viewfinder, and the AU-VSHL1G shoulder pad/tripod mount. [source]
