WATCH – The New Panasonic EVA1 – 5.7K Sensor, Dual Native ISO & More

Panasonic’s new EVA 1 was the talk of Cine Gear, with a new and improved sensor that offers a number of interesting new features. Clint Milby spoke with Panasonic’s Mitch Gross at Band Pro’s recent Panasonic day event about the EVA1 and its future in the industry.

With its price point projected to be under $8K and with features that include dual native ISO and 2K recording up to 240 fps, the Panasonic EVA1 stands to take the midpriced cinema camera market by storm.
EVA1 Features:

  • Super 35mm 5.7K Sensor
  • Dual Native ISO
  • EF Lens Mount
  • Records 4K up to 60 fps
  • Records 2K up to 240 fps
  • 10-Bit, 4:2:2 Processing
  • Records to SD Cards
  • V-Log and V-Gamut Capture
  • SDI and HDMI Video Outputs

The new Super 35 5.7k sensor promises multiple things. First, a much clearer 4K output, reduced artifacting and noise levels. This powerful new sensor allows for 4k recording at 60fps as well as 2k recording at 240fps with 10-Bit, 4:2:2 processing. Color quality will also be dramatically affected, making reds, blues, greens and everything in between pop.

On top of that, a free software update in the future will allow third party developers to link their monitors to the camera, offering increased levels of control for operators and cinematographers.

In addition to the new sensor, the EVA1 benefits from the other features brought over from the VariCam line. These features include Dual Native ISO, a feature that has only existed in the VariCam line of cameras.

There will also be a built-in ND filter control, as well as HDMI and SDI clean outputs with SDI RAW output coming in a future update.

The EVA1 body is also of particular note, at under 3 pounds with a removable handle for custom rigging.
The Panasonic EVA1 will be available for under $8,000 in Fall 2017. For more information on the EVA1 visit
