Panasonic EVA1 Footage

From just a few quick viewings on my UltraHD 27 inch Dell P2715Q the footage looks really nice. I see decent detail in the shadows and pleasant skin tone rendition and highlight roll-off. More tests are to be done for sure, but just from this sample alone, I think a lot of eople out there would be pleased. Would love to learn more about the specific settings on the camera for the shoot.

What do you guys think so far about the first ever Panasonic EVA1 footage? Let me know in the comments.

    Hmmmmm. It’s ooookay I guess. It’s not bad. Doesn’t blow me out of the water or anything.

  • von

    I’m not crazy about those highlights.

  • Rob Sholty

    Looks pretty good but I feel like it could maybe be pushed harder in the grade. Doesn’t look very cinematic to me color wise.

  • Raphael Madeira

    Is it just me or is there some weird noise, even colored noise, in the shadows every now and then? At 0:22 for example.
    Also, why not test the camera at 2500 ISO in darker situations considering the dual ISO feature is such a big selling point?
    Just some thoughts, camera looks great so far otherwise.

      definitely some grain at those parts first pic is at 4k second pic is at HD after being downsampled its at least somewhat tighter noise but still very noticeable

    Funny I’v been filming recently in some same Icelandic’s locations with a Varicam LT … The picture have the same cinematic look and soft colors as the Varicam, very pleasing, I prefer that look over the canon’s. It should nicely match GH5 footages … It’s difficult to judge from a youtube video, but EVA might have less noise in the blacks than the Varicam LT, which is a real problem when you underexpose a log footage on the LT … Pulling the whites in post would bring a noticeable noise on the LT … I film documentaries, switching from shoulder to gimbal, drone or tripod, to this point I did not find a camera versatile enough to be used on those various configurations, so the EVA might be a good option to me …
