The VariCam camera has been used in several documentary and advertising productions. It offers good workflows with AVC-ULTRA or AVC-intra files. It also stands out for its dual ISO capabilities and high speed recording up to 120fps in 4K. It has an OLED viewfinder and also offers recording in Apple ProRes through its ATOMOS Global Pty license.

The new Varicam 35 4K camera provides with a superb workflow, no matter which format you decide to work with.It is designed to be used as a high end cinema camera or as a commercial, TV and documentaries camera.
The camera features a modular design, including two different modules: the camera and the external recorder. These modules can either work together or function separately (using a cable or wirelessly), allowing for an easier handling when working with stabilizers and cranes. The external recorder module can be swapped by a dedicated 4K uncompressed RAW recorder module from Codex specifically designed for this camera.
The new 8,9 megapixel Super 35 MOS sensor has been developed specifically for this camera. With 26,7mm height and 14,1mm width it features 4448x2308 effective pixels and provides with more than 14 stops of dynamic range.
Also, this new Panasonic sensor has been designed with a dual analog amplifying circuit that delivers the picture signal in two different ways regarding the signal to noise ratio: one with a native ISO of 800 and the other with a native ISO of 5000. Therefore the sensor performance at 5000 ISO is excellent, with surprisingly low levels of noise.
Recording formats (RAW, Apple ProRes and AVC-Intra)
The Varicam 35 has two independent recorders that allow it to record simultaneously two different clips with different codecs, formats or resolutions.
In addition, the camera allows for uncompressed RAW recording thanks to the Codex V-RAW 2.0 and also delivers 120fps 4K recording with a color depth of 10 bits and V-log color profile.
The camera offers the AVC-intra codec, ant with the Atomos Global Pty license it is possible to record ProRes 4444 XQ, 4444 HQ, 422 and 422 LT at 2K and HD. As for the recording times, the camera reaches 45 minutes at 4K 444 @24fps using expressP2 memory cards (256GB).
Equipped with the new V-gamma curve, the Varicam 35 offers a wider and richer range of colors that enlarges the dynamic range offering more than 14 stops. It also features 7 HD-SDI outputs –four of them are 3G HD-SDI outputs that support 4K external recording, two of them are designed for monitoring purposes and the last one is a viewfinder SDI output.
This camera supports new recording media specifically designed for high framerate recording (expressP2) alongside micro P2. It also features a 3.5” LCD control panel module that can be attached to both sides of the camera and a bright and sharp OLED 1280x720pxl viewfinder.
The camera module (AU-V35C1G) comes with a PL mount attached and has several neutral density built-in filters (Clear, ND6, ND1.2, ND1.8). Even though both the camera and the recorder module together are not weightyweight (less than 5kg), a more lightweight configuration can be achieved as we stated previously via the UA-VCBL05G cable.
As a high end camera, the Varicam 35 is built to last, with a robust and solid aluminum alloy construction that packs a heat sink. This design allows it to endure temperatures ranging between 40ºC and as low as 0ºC.
