The First High Definition "VariCam" in Australia arrives
ProCam have purchased the first "VariCam" AJ-HDC27FE,
the AJ-FRC27 Frame Rate Converter and AJ-HD3700 HD-D5 VTR. All will
go into the ProCam Hire line-up and have already been secured for
several feature film projects in the New Year.
ProCam has already finished its first feature in HD and has identified
that there is a definite need for the variable frame rate features
of the VariCam. Ian Bates owner of ProCam says "This type of
camera is exactly what the HD film business has been waiting for."
Being a pioneer of HD Technology ProCam is keen to use the VariCam
on Music Clips, High End TVCs, and more Feature Films.
The AJ-HDC27FE or VariCam is the only HD Camcorder on the
market that can be "under-cranked" or "over-cranked"
just like a film camera. The camera can run at any frame rate from
4fps up to 60fps in 1 fps steps. Producers can now shoot on High
Definition video with all the flexibility of film high speed and
low speed effects in the camera and the "Cine Gamma" feature
makes the picture even more "film-like".
