Panasonic EVA1 Makes UK Debut

News Image
Panasonic's AU-EVA1 35mm cinema camera is making its UK debut at the Media Production Show 2017, Stand 416.

The camera contains a 5.7K Super 35mm-sized sensor for capturing cinematic images. By starting at a higher native resolution, the 5.7K sensor yields a higher resolving image when down sampled to 4K, UHD, 2K, and even 720p. Similar to the company's VariCam lineup of cinema cameras, the EVA1 contains V-Log/V-Gamut capture to deliver HDR and broad colours. V-Log has log curve characteristics that are somewhat reminiscent of negative film and V-Gamut delivers a colour space even larger than film. The EVA1 will also import the colourimetry of the VariCam line.

In addition, the EVA1 records to readily-available, lower-cost SD cards. The camera can record in several formats and compression rates, and offers up to 10-bit 422, even in 4K. A complete breakdown of recording formats will be available at the time of the EVA1's release, which is scheduled to ship from Autumn 2017.

The camera utilises a native EF-mount, giving shooters access to the broad EF lens ecosystem, including dozens of cinema-style prime and zoom lenses from numerous manufacturers. Electronic Image Stabilisation (EIS) is employed to compensate for camera shake and blurring. Behind the lens mount, an integrated ND filter wheel in 2, 4, and 6 stops allows for precise exposure control. The EVA1 also allows the IR Cut filter to be swung out of the path to the sensor at the push of a button.

As a professional video production tool, the EVA1 offers dual balanced XLR audio inputs and 4K-capable video outputs in both HDMI and SDI. In a future firmware upgrade, EVA1 will offer 5.7K RAW output to third party recorders.

Weighing 1.2kg (body only) with a form factor of 17cm x 13.5cm x 13.3cm and a removable handgrip, EVA1 can be used for efficient handheld shooting applications and can also be mounted on a drone, gimbal rig, or jib arm. There will also be numerous mounting points and Panasonic is currently working with accessory makers to allow further customisation with the EVA1.

Also at the Media Production Show 2017, Panasonic is exhibiting the full VariCam lineup, including the VariCam 35, the VariCam LT and the VariCam Pure, which provides 4K uncompressed RAW at up to 120fps.

The Broadcast & ProAV team is joined at the two-day London event by Takahiro Mitsui, part of the development team for the AU-EVA1.

Alongside the new AU-EVA1 and VariCam range visitors to the show are able to see Panasonic's full remote camera solution, as well as the AK-UC3000 4K live system channel, which was used by Mediapro for the first live 4K broadcast of the Barcelona vs. Real Madrid 'El Clasico' football match.
