Meet ‘n’ greet
 
VariCam LT and the VariCam Pure
Panasonic will be exhibiting the compact VariCam LT and the VariCam Pure, which gives 4K uncompressed RAW at up to 120fps. Come and visit us in the usual location at the Opera Nova to see them in action.
 
Also on show will be the recently launched AU-EVA1 compact cinema camera, which features a newly-developed 5.7K Super 35mm sensor and dual-native ISO sensitivity. The AU-EVA1 can also be used as a B camera for the VariCam line-up because it has the same colour gamut.
