Panasonic AU-EVA1 5.7K EF Mount Compact Super 35mm Cinema Camera
Compact and lightweight, the Panasonic AU-EVA1 is tailor-made for handheld shooting, but also well suited for documentaries, advertisements, and music videos. The compact size and new 5.7K sensor mean that the EVA1 fills that gap for a variety of filmmaking applications.
The EVA1 contains a newly designed 5.7K Super 35mm-sized (24.60mm x 12.97mm) sensor for capturing true 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. 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 ahigher native resolution, the 5.7K sensor yields a higher resolving image when down-sampled to 4K, UHD, 2K, or even 720p. Additionally, the increased colour information results in a finer, more accurate finished image. Dynamic range measures the luminance range that a digital camera can capture. The EVA1 delivers 14 stops of Dynamic Range, enabling fine gradation in exposure from bright to dark image areas.
The increased colour information results in a finer, more accurate finished image. One of the key features on the VariCam 35, VariCam LT, and VariCam Pure cameras is dual native ISO. Utilising a process that allows the sensor to be read in a fundamentally different way, dual native ISO extracts more information from the sensor without degrading the image. This results in a camera that can switch from a standard sensitivity to a high sensitivity without an increase in noise, or other artifacts. The EVA1 also includes dual native ISO for this reason. The ability to capture accurate colours and rich skin tones is a must for any filmmaker. Like the VariCam line-up of cinema cameras, the EVA1 contains V-Log/V-Gamut capture to deliver high dynamic range 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 celebrated colourimetry of the VariCam line. The Super 35 mm sensor achieves a wide colour gamut known as V-Gamut, which is EVA1’s optimum colour space and achieves a colour space that is wider than BT.2020. V-Log has log curve characteristics that are somewhat reminiscent of negative film and V-Gamut delivers a colour space even larger than film.
Weighing only 1.2Kg (body-only) with a compact form factor 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 for complex yet smooth camera moves. There will also be numerous mounting points and Panasonic is currently working with top accessory makers to allow further customisation with the EVA1. Ideal for indie filmmakers, 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 4:2:2, even in 4K. 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, which will help smooth out handheld or shoulder-mount shots on documentary or run-and-gun projects. The EIS within the camera will counter-balance camera shake and blurring enabling smooth movement for handheld shooting. 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. Unique photographic effects and night vision imagery are possible with this control over infrared.
