Panasonic M5 VHS

Want to get that 80’s look? The Panasonic M5 VHS camera will give you just that.

Our Panasonic M5 comes with a V-lock power distro and has D-tap and USB out. Our kit also comes with a converter to HDMI, so you can use the M5 with an on-board TV Logic (or go wireless). We additionally supply two 90-minute tapes (included with the rental) for recording, and we stock blank Premium tapes as consumable items which can be purchased from our in-house store.

After shooting, your footage can be ingested at Feral to an upscale of 1080p (although for this you will need to provide your own harddrive to back up the footage).
