The Cinema VariCam LT features outstanding image quality that allows you to achieve your vision. The advanced grading tools, in-camera dailies and proxy recording capabilities that are built into the VariCam LT are a game-changing in streamlining workflow.
The VariCam LT has a compact and lightweight magnesium body and offers same picture quality specifications as the larger VariCam 35 cinema camera. The super 35mm image sensor, which is the same imager as VariCam 35, features wide dynamic range, an expansive colour gamut, and high sensitivity for 4K image acquisition. It has dual native ISO settings of 800 and 5000. The native 5000 ISO allows for clean shooting in very low light situations. Its size and design facilitate a wide array of shooting styles including comfortable ergonomic shoulder mounted operation or use on gimbals and drones.
One new feature that has been added to the VariCam LT is the EF lens*1 mount which offers a wide array of lens choices. The EF mount can be removed by an end user and replaced with a PL mount (optional). This allows for even greater versatility in lens selection when shooting with the VariCam LT. The VariCam LT workflow is very similar to that of the VariCam 35. Both cameras have a dual codec recording function that allows the user to record a primary or main codec as well as a smaller proxy file. In addition, each camera offers an in-camera colour grading function and support for AVC-Intra 4K and Apple ProRes codecs.
The VariCam LT is equipped with the super 35mm single-chip MOS sensor developed especially for the VariCam 35. It offers DCI 4K and UHD 4K resolution, and boasts high sensitivity, low noise,a wide 14 stops of dynamic range and cinematic depth of field. This wide dynamic range assures accurate image rendering over the entire image, from dark areas to highlights. Even in very dimly lit scenes, which are particularly important in movie production, the VariCam LT provides low-noise images without any compromise in picture quality. V -Log is capable of creating the 14+ stops of dynamic range offered by the VariCam LT image sensor, greatly enhancing look creation capability.
With the Varicam LT, the maximum frame rate when recording in 4K (4096 x 2160) or UHD (3840x2160) resolution is 60p (60fps). This produces smooth, high-resolution images when recording fast-moving action scenes. However, when shooting in 2K (2048 x 1080) and HD (1920x1080) resolution, high-speed 240 fps recording can be used to produce an extreme slow-motion effect. This is achieved by cropping the image sensor recording area in order to achieve a faster scanning speed. Variable frame rates are available from 1 to 120 fps in AVC-Intra 2K422 and from 120 to 240 fps in AVC-Intra 2K-LT. The frame rate can be changed while recording.
Need a camcorder that slots in with your post-production workflow? The VariCam LT features an in-camera colour grading function (3D LUT/CDL). This enables colour tuning on set as well as in the field when using the camera control panel or 3rd party software. This means dailies which had been created after shooting can now be produced on set with the camera. Grading information such as 3D LUT files and CDL files can be recorded together with the image data, allowing you to provide the same vision that you created on set to the editorial staff.
