With the introduction of the P2 VariCam 2700 and 3700, Panasonic once again raised the bar for high-end acquisition. The new VariCam models build on the strengths of the original while adding more features, a powerful, new codec and the benefits of P2 solid-state recording.

We have compiled this chart to help you understand the features offered in the new cameras and how they compare with their predecessor. To learn more about Panasonic’s next-gen P2 VariCams, download Abel’s brochure.
