Super 35 mm Imager and EF Lens Mount
The VariCam LT is equipped with the super 35mm single-chip MOS sensor developed especially for the VariCam 35. It offers 4K (4096 x 2160) and UHD (3840 x 2160) resolution, and boasts high sensitivity, low noise, wide dynamic range and cinematic depth of field. This sensor received The Hollywood Post Alliance Engineering Excellence Award 2015.
The VariCam LT has a latitude of 14+ stops. This wide dynamic range assures accurate image rendering, particularly from the critical shadow to highlight areas. The 14+ stops of dynamic range generated by the super 35mm image sensor and advanced image processing, record images by using V-Log gamma.

Dual Native ISO of 5000
The VariCam LT has two native ISO settings: 800 and 5000. This means the VariCam LT achieves very high sensitivity while maintaining a low noise level at 5000 ISO. The noise level at 5000 ISO is nearly identical to that seen at 800 ISO. In order to achieve this function two dedicated analog circuits are implemented on every pixel of the imager of the VariCam LT for each native ISO before gain processing. This allows the camera to achieve much higher sensitivity without increased noise. Normally noise is introduced in the gain process of rating ISO in digital cameras. This functionality is revolutionary for low light scene shooting. Especially this ISO 5000 enables the camera to capture with very low available light maintaining a realistic mood.
The VariCam LT is equipped with "V-Gamut," giving it a wider color gamut than that of film. V-Gamut also encompasses the entire BT.2020 color space.

The "V-Log" gamma curve offers 14+ stops of dynamic range and facilitates advanced color grading adjustments in post production. To reduce post production steps and increase the time available for creative image production, the VariCam LT is also equipped with a 5-mode scene file function. The V-LOOK mode, in particular, maintains 14+ stops of dynamic range within the Rec 709 standards, and applies a newly designed gamma curve to create cine-like images following primary grading. Other modes include the V-709, which is ideal for viewing on standard monitors, and "BC-LOOK," which creates a look that mimics traditional TV broadcast images.
The VariCam LT provides down conversion to Full HD via two 3G-SDI outputs and one VF output (BNC) while shooting in 4K. Your look with in-camera color grading and information overlay can be applied to each output.
