You're invited to our FREE Panasonic VariCam LT Hands-on Day on Wednesday 22nd June

Our event will give you a change to get up close and personal with Panasonic's new 4K Super35 VariCam LT. Not only that, but you will also have the opportunity to talk directly to Holdan's Head of Technology, Richard Payne.

The VariCam LT is a lightweight and compact 4K Super 35 camera, a true departure from the modular design of its predecessor; however it does share a lot of the features of the VariCam 35 as well as the ability to shoot in multiple formats ranging from 4K, UHD, 2K, and HD.

The advantages to using this unique camera are endless; it is also fully capable of High Dynamic Range (HDR) image capture thanks to its 14+ stops of dynamic range at its dual native ISOs of 800 and 5000. Featuring the same sensor as the 35, ProRes recording capabilities up to 24fps in a crop sensor mode and can take canon EF or PL mount lenses.

This event is ideal for independent filmmakers, documentary makers and corporate production creators.

We will run two walk-in sessions throughout the day - one in the morning at 10am to 12 noon; and the 2nd session from 2pm to 4pm in the afternoon - at our Teddington branch. Best of all, this event is FREE to you and friends that are interested in learning more about the ideal camera for handheld, Steadicam, Jib, Crane, Drone, Gimbal, and overall cinema verité work. This event is a must for anyone interested in the above.

The VariCam LT is half the price and size of Panasonic flagship Super35mm 4K cameras and uses the same sensor, so on paper, it looks very impressive. However, it's the pictures that count and you can only judge that by seeing it in action.


On the day, you will learn:

  • A clear understanding of how the VariCam LT compares against the VariCam 35
  • Advice on the benefits it offers over the competition
  • Hands-on experience of using the VariCam LT with appropriate accessories

Our day will be held in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere where you can freely chat with other attendees to understand if any of these products are a perfect fit for your requirements.

The event will leave you equipped with practical knowledge and hands-on experience, making it that bit easier in deciding whether the VariCam LT is worth the investment. You will also learn which accessories are best to us with the camera and which are best to avoid.

The day also includes a Q&A session with plenty of time for you to get your hands on the kit.

Equipment being demonstrated includes the Panasonic VariCam LT 4K Super 35 camera plus a range of the latest accessories.

Pop-in when you can, try-out the kit and talk directly to the experts.

We're looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday 22nd June. To register for the event, head on over to our Events page here where you will find further information regarding how the day will run, what to expect and the event location details.
