NAB 2017 – Panasonic Varicam LT Firmware Upgrade for 2K / 240 FPS
Panasonic announced that the Varicam LT cinema camera will recieve a free Firmware upgrade to allow 2K RAW out at up to 240fps when recording to Convergent Design’s Odyssey7Q+ recorder.
Currently able to record 4K/2K/HD to internal media, the firmware will output the 2K RAW to the external recorder and also record in camera as a second copy. Talking specifically about the 2K RAW mode, it is windowed from the center of the sensor and dynamic range is unaffected with 14+ stops dual 800/5000 ISO.
Both Panasonic and Convergent Design will provide the firmware upgrades for their respective hardware free of charge.
