Production studio Oxen Made decided, after shooting some tests with the VariCam LT, the smaller, "budget-friendly" version of Panasonic's VariCam 35mm camera, to make their V-log footage available for anyone who wants to download it. Below is a video that showcases the footage, which was shot using a Zeiss Compact Zoom t2.9 28-80mm, as well as PrimeCircle XM 24mm, 35mm, 50mm, and 85mm lenses, was edited on Adobe Premiere Pro, and graded in DaVinci Resolve.

From Oxen Made:

The focus of the shots we captured was simply to see how the camera handled high contrast images (i.e bright skies, dark foregrounds etc.). We also tested out some of its high frame rate functionality, which is unlocked when switching to either a cropped 2K or 1080 mode. You can shoot 4K 60fps, however for our test we wanted to see how it’s 240fps looked. Another goal was to see how it handled skin tone in a variety of situations and to see how well the two native ISO’s held up and what they looked like should footage need to be cut together from both.

You can download the V-log footage from Dropbox here. (The file's about 20GB.) Just because you can't test out the camera itself, downloading the clips might give you a better idea of what working with the VariCam in post is like, especially when it comes to color grading, since Panasonic claims the camera's V-Look color profile requires less "intense color grading."

You be the judge. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
