Panasonic introduced the EVA1 at Cine Expo, and we’ve been waiting to get our hands on it ever since. Those of you lucky enough to be in Amsterdam can see it on their stand at IBC, but we can all enjoy the first test footage, released today.
Shot in Iceland by DoP Filippo Chiesa and graded by Frederic Savoir, the clip highlights some of the great features the EVA1 has inherited from Panasonic’s Varicam range.
Like the Varicam LT, the AU-EVA1 is capable of dual native ISO, a technology that allows you to extract more information from the sensor increasing the level of noise or artefacts in the film, leading to crisper images and better low light performance.
Also imported from the VariCam range is V-Log/V-Gamut capture, which gives you high dynamic range, bolder colours and more realistic skin tones – the log curves of V-Log are reminiscent of those of negative film, and V-Gamut delivers a colour space even larger than that of film.
If you want to see. more of the EVA1 in action, there’s a making of video, too. Alternatively, we hear last minute flights to Amsterdam are very reasonable.
