Panasonic Compact 4k S35 Varicam Announced

Recommended Posts

It's good that more small size 4K cameras are out there. I personally don't like the Panasonic look, it's all look to me like the old DVX100 look with a super35 depth of field and more resolution, very video like, I know it's subjective, but at this price point for people that rent cameras, I can hardly see this camera go out on jobs, as you could hire an EPIC Dragon or Arri Amira/Alexa Classic for the same price or less not to Mention C300 Mark II or Sony F5/F55.


It will appeal to people that REALLY like the Panasonic look, I'm sure there are a few, but in most of the world it's hard to see this sell.


For an owner/operator that wants to buy, it might make more sense, if he was considering buying something like F55, but even then, you can get a Scarlet-W full package including media and v-lock batteries for the same price or get the Sony F5+Sony A7sII deal or C300 mark II and save almost 10K.


Would be interesting to hear what people are thinking about those varicam here?
