I needed to do some pickup shooting for an ad campaign, so I figured I'd try the Varicam out. I only had a couple of days with it. I really, really love this camera, and wish I could have tested it out for a longer period of time. Download the ProRes and play in VLC if you want to see a 1080p render without the internet mush.
All 4K except for the slow motion shots at the end, 120p 2K crop. Sigma 18-35mm.

- Beautiful, effortless image and color. Best I've used so far in this price range.
- Plenty of dynamic range. 14 stops sounds right.
- Very easy to grade. Feels significantly less tricky than Clog 2 or Slog 2.
- Internet compression really, really sucks.
