Theo van de Sande Shoots Amazon Pilot with VariCam 35

Cinematographer Theo van de Sande, ASC, shot the pilot for Amazon Studios’ Salem Rogers with a Panasonic VariCam 35 4K Camera/Recorder. Van de Sande calls the VariCam 35 “the first 4K offering I feel comfortable with, an absolutely modern camera with tremendous scope, an embracing image, and whose dual native ISOs of 800/5000 will completely change the business.

“I simply didn’t believe it when I switched for the first time from ISO 800 to native ISO 5000,” he adds. “How could this be accomplished without sacrificing dynamic range and imagery? I came to learn that at ISO 5000, the camera can actually see more and better than the human eye. That allowed me to create a whole micro world in front of the camera.”
