Visual Impact Orders Modular 4k Cameras For New TV Drama

News Image
The Panasonic VariCam 35 has been selected for a major new TV drama, set to be screened in the Autumn.

Visual Impact has ordered six of the modular 4K cameras, with four sold to leading rental company 24-7 Drama and the remaining two available for immediate supply.

"This is a great 4K camera from Panasonic and offers our customers a true alternative to the current large sensor cameras we stock," said Tim Sparrock Director of Visual Impact.
The units bound for 24-7 Drama will be used on a major new TV drama which will be screened in the autumn. The specific look and 4K workflow of the VariCam 35 made it an ideal choice for this drama.

"We worked very closely with Panasonic to ensure the client achieved the results they were looking for," said Graham Hawkins MD of 24-7 Drama, "along with the cameras we will be supplying a large range of lenses and ARRIFLEX accessories."
