First Look at the Panasonic VariCam LT
Panasonic is back in the game! The Panasonic VariCam LT hit the market as a more affordable VariCam 35 with more options for today's 'modern filmmakers.' Not only is the VariCam LT less than one third the price and half the weight of its big brother, it also has more lens options, practically identical specs, and a form factor small and rugged enough for everything from weddings to doc work to features. (Watch out Canon C300!) The Varicam LT features...
Single Super 35mm MOS Sensor - classic cinema depth of field with low noise and high sensitivity
14 Stops of Dynamic Range with V-Log and Dual Native ISO 800/5000 - low noise even in dimly lit scenes. Ideal for doc/reality work.
Interchangeable Stainless Steel EF Mount - can swap for PL mount
4K Up to 60 fps, 2K/HD Up to 240 fps
In Camera Color Grading - 3D LUT files and CDL files can be recorded simultaneously with the image data
...and the impressive list goes on! (Scroll down for full specs.)

With the Panasonic VariCam LT, it was easy to see that they have thought about a lot of the small things that a single-operator shooter would be concerned with. - Sebastian Wöber, Cinema5D
feels like a cross between a Sony FS7 and ARRI Alexa Mini. The body...is very close to being perfect. Although not intended to replace the larger Varicam 35, the LT seems to address many of the issues I had with its larger brother while carrying over most of the attributes I liked. - Jason Wingrove, award winning director and cinematographer
