The Panasonic EVA1 is capable of high resolution rendering of 4k footage within it’s 5.7k sensor. The larger sensor is used to super-sample recordings and creating images with less noise and artifacting. Panasonic’s dual native ISO uses alternatively circuitry to add gain or shift to the gamma of the signal output to increase sensitivity. The camera is switchable between 800 ISO and 2500 ISO.
The camera supports an EF lens mount, using interchangeable lenses from a variety of manufacturers, and behind that directly is the electronic ND filter wheel offering 2,4 and 6 stops of filtration to cut down on excess light so you can adjust your aperture as you see fit. The IR-cut filter is defeatable for shooting in extreme low-light situations for creative colour effects.
- Panasonic combines the V-Log and V-Gamut to capture a wide exposure latitude and colour palette.
- The EVA1 includes electronic image stabilisation, useful for shooting handheld or shoulder mounted to compensate for vibrations on movement.
- The EVA1 utilises SD card recording that supports all internal recording modes including the 10-bit 4:2:2 4k modes, and dual card slots means you have the ability to shoot through cards without swapping, or shooting twice to create a back-up
- On the body of the camera are additional features, dual balanced XLR inputs and HDMI and SDI outputs both 4k capable and can be adjusted seperately allowing HD to be fet to a monitor or viewfinder. The camera is also capable of timecodes
- The camera can capture 4K (4096 x 2160), UHD (3840 x 2160), 2K (2048 x 1080), Full-HD (1920 x 1080), and HD (1280 x 720). For high-speed capture, the EVA1 offers up to 59.94 fps for 4K, up to 120 fps for 2K and Full-HD, or 240 fps with an image sensor crop.
- The camera’s battery lasts for up to 1 1/2 hours of continuous recording
- The EVA 1 provides a number of useful monitoring tools including:Peaking, Expand (Image Zoom), Waveform, Zebras, and Spotmeter (Y-Get). The EVA1 also utilizes Focus Squares, a feature originally found in the Varicam line which displays an array of green squares that grow in size when their local area appears to be sharp, to enable shooters to achieve critical focus.
