Panasonic AU-EVA1 Video Camera

Posted Dec. 30th, 2017 by Daniel J. Cox

Panasonic continues their impressive push in to breaking the boundaries of stills and video cameras. With the announcement of the Panasonic AU-EVA1 video camera they’ve added a new model with groundbreaking technology for producing moving pictures. For those of you who HATE video and want nothing to do with it, you can stop reading right here. But for those who are open to all aspects of making ever more powerful stories with smaller cameras that do more, you may want to see this new video by Jake of BandH Photo & Video.

This is the first I’ve ever seen of Jake’s reviews and I love his style. Low key but energetic enough when needed. And man, what hair! Makes me yearn for my younger days. But thankfully hair isn’t important when creating a great story and using the new tools that make the job easier and less costly. Panasonic suggests this camera fits right between the GH5 and their Varicam LT.

Basic Specs of the AU-EVA1

  • 5.7K Super 35 Sensor
  • EF Lens Mount
  • 4K 60p / 2K up to 240p
  • Dual Native ISO 800/2500
  • 14 Stops of Dynamic Range
  • 4:2:2 10-bit
  • SD Card Recording
  • V-Log / V-Gamut
  • Up to 400 Mbps Recording (future update)
  • 5.7K Raw Output (future update)

You can watch Jake’s video for more in-depth information. There’s also a great description of the new technology inside this camera at the Panasonic website. Thanks Jake for sharing this with us. Keep up the great work. For those of you who want to buy local or from a smaller dealer don’t forget our friends over at Bozeman Camera. I’m not sure they handle the video end of Panasonic cameras, but they certainly do have the new Lumix line. Marshal and the crew are great supporters of my Blog work (they often loan me cameras and lenses). Without them I couldn’t do some of the things I write about here on the Blog.

One last note, I found this video on one may favorite websites dedicated to Micro Four Thirds cameras, 43Rumors. 43Rumors is the first web page I visit each morning I get up. Thanks to the folks at 43Rumors for their great work. I’ve never seen a Rumors site with more accurate information and they’re doing the MFT world a huge favor buy supporting the excitement of this new category of camera technology. Thanks guys and gals over at 43Rumors.
