The new Panasonic VariCam LT has people very excited to enjoy the same sensor as it’s big brother VariCam 35 and same processing but in a smaller, lighter, more affordable package. Add the Odyssey with the Odyssey RAW Bundle and you have a 4K RAW cinematic machine! Since the VariCam LT does not capture RAW internally, this pairing allows Odyssey to capture the VariCam LT RAW output. Available formats are 4K/UHD 12-bit 24/25/30fps and 4K/UHD 10-bit 24/25/30/50/60fps.
The Odyssey LUT System features a preset for VariCam LOG to Rec709A. Additional custom LUTs can be loaded into the Odyssey and programmed per output to be on or off. But the monitoring capabilities don’t stop there. The Odyssey can also show six different anamorphic desqueeze modes. And, when the VariCam LT outputs 4K 4096x2160, the Odyssey shows the entire 17:9 frame. The LUTs, 17:9 and anamorphic desqueeze monitoring can all be output to other monitors.
Supported Recording Formats
The Odyssey can record Vari-Frame (2-60fps), allowing it to shoot in a wide range of variable frame rates. The VariCam LT can output zero decimal frame rates from 2-60fps (2, 3, 4, 5…). In certain modes it can even perform a speed ramp, changing frame rate while recording. The Odyssey7Q and Odyssey7Q+ capture these specialize frame rates in 4K RAW and records them at standard playback frame rates so that they are ready for use with no post manipulation. All recordings are in the industry-standard CinemaDNG for straightforward post in programs such as Premiere, Resolve and Scratch Lab.

Contributing to the power and versatility of the Odyssey7Q and Odyssey7Q+ is the ability to display and route 3D-LUTs, measured on the Image Analysis Tools and output over HDMI and/or multiple SDI outputs. The Odyssey comes pre-loaded with numerous preset LUTs and additional LUTs are available for download on this website. Custom 3D-LUT files can be created and imported.
