WATCH: The Panasonic EVA1 – How It’s Performed & What The Future Holds

Panasonic’s EVA1 has been shipping for a little while now, so we took the chance to catch up with Panasonic’s Lawrence Nunn to find out how people have responded to the camera, as well as how Panasonic has been involved in the pro video community, such as their sponsorship of the recent SOC Awards and their many upcoming events.

The EVA1 sensor is Super-35 sized (24.60mm x 12.97mm) with 5.7K resolution. With an active resolution of 5720 x 3016, the EVA1 delivers more than 17.25 million photosites, nearly double the 8.8 million for 4K DCI (4096 x 2160). By starting at a higher native resolution, the 5.7K sensor yields a higher resolving image when downsampled to 4K, UHD, 2K, or even 720p. Additionally, the increased color information results in a finer, more accurate finished image. Panasonic’s EVA1 has numerous other features, 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 now for $7,495, and you can find out more info at
