WATCH: Panasonic EVA1 – Mitch Gross Gives Us The Latest Details at Band Pro

Panasonic’s Mitch Gross is in Los Angeles this week overseeing the production of several short films Panasonic is producing to demonstrate the capabilities of the all new EVA1. We caught up with him in between shoots at Band Pro in Burbank with Band Pro’s own, Randy Wedick with a now fully functioning model of the EVA1.  In this video, Mitch and Randy discuss the now confirmed specifications of the EVA1, as well as some new details we weren’t aware of.

There is a huge amount of excitement about this camera essentially because you’re getting much of the functionality of the VaricamLT like ‘Dual Native ISO’ in a much smaller package and price point.
