Varicam4K-PanasonicThey kept modular architecture that was introduced with a different camera head for S35 and 2/3 and a part “Recorder” which will be common to 2. The ability to save the RAW is external to the program as it was announced.

Varicams-4K-HDThe 2 should be presented at NAB but the official launch will be IBC and I think that the first deliveries are expected for the end of the year 2014.

I am very excited to see what it will give, I have been a great lover of the original Varicam which had a unique signature image. Congratulations to them !

Little video reminder ads or IBC is already talk of the camera Varicam 35
