Panasonic Launches New Camera at the DGA Back

Posted February 12, 2016

Hundreds of guests filled the Director’s Guild in Hollywood for this launch where Panasonic introduced The VariCam LT Compact 4K Camera.  It was a dynamic evening highlighted by Panasonic’s innovation and complemented with APC’s sumptuous menu. Andrew Langsam of Get in the Groove Entertainment provided the music for the evening. Carolyn Giardina of the Hollywood reporter, who covered the launch at the DGA, explained that, “Panasonic is aiming to extend its reach into television production and indie filmmaking with a new addition to its VariCam 4K camcorder line, which was unveiled Wednesday evening before several hundred guests at the DGA Theatre. The VariCam LT offers the same Super 35 sensor as the VariCam 35 but with a compact body weighing just six pounds. Cinematographer Dejan Georgevich helped Panasonic launch the Varicam LT, introducing a five-minute narrative that he photographed with the new camera. It demonstrated the cameras capabilities in a range of conditions with scenes shot on location in New York, in the Lincoln Tunnel, interiors in a gym, as well as at the Sandy Hook Lighthouse in New Jersey.” Panasonic at DGA 1     varicamlt_slantpl-medium_fix (1)   Panasonic at DGA 5 Panasonic at DGA 2 Panasonic at DGA 3 Panasonic at DGA 4
