Firmware Upgrade Superpowers Panasonic EVA1

News Image
Panasonic has announced a firmware upgrade to its EVA1 compact cinema camera that, among many improvements, will see the camera capable of recording ALL-I codecs and outputting RAW.

The free upgrade, available from the end of March 2018, means the super 35mm sensor camera will now support Panasonic ALL-Intra codecs1, RAW output2, time lapse recording as well as a new HD 422 interlaced codec3, for TV applications.

In addition, remote operation is now possible using third party wired controllers, allowing focus and iris control for diverse lens options, as well as zoom control for Canon compact cine servo zoom.

Additionally, six Sigma ART lenses4 are also newly supported.
LCD signal cloning to HDMI, as well as additional home screen indicators improve monitoring in the camera. To improve the workflow, Panasonic has also added the capability to output ancillary data for RAW such as time code, RAC flag and also VANC metadata on SDI.

Since its release in late 2017, EVA1 has been used extensively in independent filmmaking, commercials, documentary and live events. Featuring a native EF and optional third-party PL mount, EVA1's small form factor makes it ideal for gimbal and drone applications, while the colour science and dual native ISO adopted from the VariCam makes it a great B camera for bigger productions utilising the VariCam.
