It’s that time of the year again, and NAB 2014 is just a few days away! We’ve been watching the new product announcements roll in (including the the new lenses from Canon and Fujinon that we blogged about yesterday), but we can’t wait to see what else pops up at the show.

Panasonic VariCam 35 & HS

As the name implies, the camera will use a new Super35 CMOS sensor for multiple format acquisition. Recording formats include 4K Raw output, as well as 4K UHD, 2K and HD video formats. Internal 4K recording will be to Express P2 cards, which there are two slots for. The camera also has two microP2 slots for recording 2K and HD. The VariCam 35 will be capable of recording (internally) 4K up to 120fps and will utilize AVC-Ultra codecs. Simultaneous recording to microP2 is possible for proxy editing and match back.
