How Does The EVA1 Fit Into The Panasonic Camera Family?

How Does The EVA1 Fit Into The Panasonic Camera Family?

Panasonic’s EVA1 has taken the industry by storm, selling out from resellers all over and commanding everyone’s attention with it’s capabilities. So we naturally wanted to speak with Panasonic Cinema Development Manager Lawrence Nunn about how the EVA1 fits with their other cameras, such as their VariCam line.

Weighing only 2.65-lbs (1.2Kg, body-only) with a compact form factor (6.69” H x 5.31” W x 5.23”D) and a removable handgrip, the EVA1 can be used for efficient handheld shooting applications. Because of its compact form, it can also be mounted on a drone, gimbal rig or jib arm for complex yet smooth camera moves. Panasonic’s EVA1 has inspired a fervor not often seen by cameras these days, with a feature set and price point that really hits many shooter’s sweet spot, including:

  • Compact and lightweight magnesium body with a weight of 2.7kg
  • Newly-developed Super 35mm MOS sensor that provides true 4K images with a dynamic range of 14+ stops for HDR content
  • Dual-native ISO settings of 800 and 5000 which achieves much higher sensitivity without increasing noise
  • Expansive colour gamut that exceeds BT2020 – the colour space required for HDR content delivery
  • EF mount as standard offers a wide array of lens choice, but can also be removed by the end-user and replaced with an optional PL mount
  • 14 Stops of Dynamic Range with V-Log
  • 4K Up to 60 fps, 2K/HD Up to 240 fps
  • Simultaneous Dual Codec Recording
  • Selectable Gamma Curves
  • Removable IR Cut Filter
  • AVC-Intra, ProRes
  • 3.5″ LCD Control Panel


The Panasonic EVA1 is available at resellers such as Band Pro, and you can find out more info at
