Panasonic Varicam 24p HD

Panasonic's Varicam video camera combines variable frame rates that emulate the speed effects of a film camera with cine gamma image quality that offers the sufficient latitude to take full advantage of the full dynamic range of film theater projection. No wonder more and more production companies rent Varicams for their HD camera with film sensitivity and a system capable of dramatically reducing movie production costs.

The AJ-HDC27H inherits the basic design and features of its predecessors while adding enhancements geared to today's latest production needs. Everything from image quality to functions and operating ease has been fine-tuned. Capturing smooth, beautiful images, the new Varicam debuts as a low-cost, high-quality solution to production of content from movies and TV programs to commercials and music clips.
