Panasonic has introduced the VariCam Pure at IBC, a co-produced camera with Codex that is more portable than both the VariCam 35 and LT.
Kunihiko Miyagi, Director of Panasonic’s Professional Video Business Unit, tells Film and Digital Times, “Panasonic and Codex worked together on the RAW recorder that attaches directly to the back of the VariCam 35 camera head and the Varicam 35 AVC-Intra Recording body. However it had some limitations of mobility. Quite a few customers asked if the RAW recording capability could be made in a smaller package. Now Codex and Panasonic propose a new RAW recording system that directly connects the existing VariCam 35 camera head module with a completely new, integrated Codex V-RAW 2.0 Recorder. It is an uncompressed RAW-only recording system, up to 120 fps. This new camera system provides better mobility because of its smaller size and lighter weight.”
VariCAM Pure has a Super 35 sensor and can record in both 4K and 2K. Read the full story here.
