ONSIGHT Secures VariCam Deal

News Image
ONSIGHT's camera division has agreed to take a shipment of the Panasonic VariCam 35 for an upcoming feature film project.

Agreed at IBC2015, the camera was purchased from WTS Broadcast and financed by Five Arrows Media Finance Limited.

Commenting on the deal, Simon Craddock, CEO at ONSIGHT, said: "As the company that bought the first tape VariCam many years ago, we are proud to see the legacy continue with the purchase of a VariCam 35. Whilst it's a 4K camera, it's very forgiving and reproduces skin tones faithfully. We have already seen some amazing VariCam content pass through our 4K grading facility."

Featuring a modular design, the VariCam has a 35mm 4K unit. It is separate to the recording module unit, allowing interchange with Panasonic's High Speed 2/3" camera module unit.

Nigel Wilkes, Panasonic UK Group Manager, added: "It shows the versatility of VariCam that it is already being used in drama, film and Natural History, where we've got a long heritage. We are delighted to be working with ONSIGHT on an exciting feature film. The accuracy of the colour representation and 4K clarity can make the viewer experience more lifelike than ever before."
