[Cameras] Panasonic adds RAW output to VariCam LT

Today, at IBC, Panasonic announced a new addition to its VariCam LT camera that allows RAW signal output at 4K or UHD resolution.

RAW recording will be compatible with the Odyssey 7Q and 7Q+ from Convergent Design Inc. and the Atomos Inc. Shogun Inferno. The recorded CinemaDNG file is compatible with DaVinci Resolve 12.5.1, Drastic Media Reactor 5.04, and upcoming versions of major NLEs and grading systems.

Andre Meterian, Director Professional Video Systems Business Unit EMEA at Panasonic said, ‚ÄúVariCam has established a position as the 4K production camera of choice for those seeking the best image quality. This firmware version for uncompressed RAW recording expands its horizons.”

4K RAW that is instantly compatible with editing solutions is going to be very useful for television and indie feature production. Best of all, this is a firmware update which shouldn’t cost users anything extra – except the purchase of the Shogun Inferno, which goes for $1,995.

Stephen Schleicher is one of those guys that has always loved comics but never got into them until really late in life - like high school in the 80s. He just missed the Crisis on Infinite Earths, but has been around for every major crossover since. Stephen knows his way around video and film production having been a director, producer, editor, and motion graphics artist for projects ranging from small promotional pieces for Wachovia all the way up to regional videos for the Division of Emergency Management. As a prolific writer, Stephen began his career writing for the Digital Media Online community of sites, including Digital Producer and Creative Mac covering all aspects of the digital content creation industry. He then moved on to consumer technology, and began the Coolness Roundup podcast. A writing fool, Stephen also freelances for the Sci-Fi Channel's Technology Blog. When not writing, Stephen shares his knowledge as a tenured faculty member at Fort Hays State University. Still longing for the good ol' days, Stephen launched Major Spoilers in July 2006, because he is a glutton for punishment.
