The Panasonic AU-EVA1 5.7K Super 35mm Cinema Camera is compact, lightweight, and tailor-made for handheld shooting, but also well-suited for documentaries, commercials, and music videos.

The EVA1 contains a newly designed 5.7K Super 35mm-sized 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 60p, UHD, 2K, and even 720p. The increased color information results in a finer, more accurate finished image.

Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) is employed in the Panasonic EVA1 to compensate for camera shake and blurring, which will help smooth out handheld or shoulder-mount shots on documentary or run-and-gun projects.

Dual Native ISO

One of the key features of the VariCam 35, VariCam LT, and VariCam Pure is Dual Native ISO. Utilizing 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. On the VariCams, Dual Native ISO has allowed cinematographers to use less light on set, saving time and money, as well as allowing for a great variety of artistic choices. The EVA1 will include Dual Native ISO, but the camera is currently being tested to determine final ISO specifications. 

The ability to capture accurate colors and rich skin tones is a must for any filmmaker. Like the VariCam lineup of cinema cameras, the EVA1 contains V-Log/V-Gamut capture to deliver high dynamic range and broad colors. V-Log has log curve characteristics that are somewhat reminiscent of negative film and V-Gamut delivers a color space even larger than film. The EVA1 will also import the celebrated colorimetry of the VariCam line.

Compact Form Factor

Weighing only 2.65 lb (1.2 Kg body only) with a compact form factor (6.69" x 5.31" x 5.23") and a removable handgrip, EVA1 can be used for efficient handheld shooting applications or on aerial devices, gimbals, or jib arms for complex yet smooth camera moves. Numerous mounting points will be included on the camera.


Ideal for indie filmmakers, the EVA1 records to readily-available, low cost SD cards. The camera can record in several formats and compression rates. It offers 4K up to 10-bit 422.

Add an optional ATOMOS Shogun Inferno 7" 4K Monitor/Recorder or an ATOMOS SUMO 4Kp60 HDR 19" Monitor/Recorder and the latest upgraded firmware to record ProRes RAW to your ATOMOS recorder. Then edit and grade with DaVinci Resolve or Final Cut Pro X in your post production workflow.

Lenses & Filters

For lensing, the camera utilizes a native EF mount, giving shooters access to the broad field of EF lenses with dozens of cinema-style prime and zoom lenses from numerous manufacturers.

Behind the lens mount, an integrated ND filter wheel in 2, 4, and 6 stops delivers precise exposure control. The EVA1 also permits 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. 

NOTE: Please see product images for detailed Video Output, Recording Format & Recording Time, Media Card Compatibility, and Battery Pack Compatibility details.
