The Panavision® Genesis® Digital Camera System

The Genesis has a well-earned reputation for reliability, on-set efficiency, and trouble free post-production. More than just a camera , Genesis is a complete system that features high quality recording formats; a sophisticated onset color display for error-free filming; and an on-set, real time DPX (Digital Picture Exchange) creation tool that can help catch problems before you leave the location. Its size, weight, and ergonomics make it ideal for studio, handheld, or Steadicam applications.

The camera has a RGB 12.4 megapixel Super 35mm sized sensor, a nominal exposure index of 400, a speed range of 1-50 fps, a shutter angle range of 3.8- to 360-degrees, and depth of field equivalent to a 35mm film camera. The 360-degree shutter gives one additional stop of exposure, with increased motion blur.
