National Geographic’s “Strange Days” picks Panasonic


National Geographic’s “Strange Days on Planet Earth” took advantage of the VariCam’s variable frame rate features to produce a variety of off-speed effects.

National Geographic’s “Strange Days on Planet Earth,” a natural history series premiering next April on PBS, has chosen Panasonic’s VariCam HD Cinema cameras for production.

Five VariCam cameras worked simultaneously on the series: one camera for each of four episodes shot, one for sequences with scientists featured in the series, and a separate natural history unit photographed animals and plants. An underwater unit shot both scientists and natural history in the Caribbean, Australia and on California’s Pacific Coast. The series encompassed all types of natural history production with a variety of lenses, including macro photography and microscopy.
