You may recall recently I posted about the EVA1 contest Panasonic is running as well as some really helpful tutorials by Panasonic guru Barry Green (link to post here), however his free e-book guide on the Panasonic EVA1 was nowhere to be found. Well, it looks like Panasonic people have been working hard on getting it up and ready for download; and the good news is that the web page for the e-book recently went live.
You can find link at the bottom of this post and download the free guide.
For those unfamiliar, Barry Green is an Emmy award-winning producer/writer who has authored many books on the operations of Panasonic professional camcorders such as the DVX200 and many prior to that. In addition, he is a technical moderator at DVXUser.com forum where you can pick his brains about Panasonic cameras if you ask nicely in the many Panasonic dedicated threads on the forum.
The 200+ guide is presented in a neat PDF package that you can read on your desktop or mobile device and goes over in detail about the various recording options in and out of camera, the detailed menus, various outputs, and every button and switch on this very capable compact Super 35 camera. Whether you own an EVA1 or thinking of renting on for your next project, this guide is a must and I wish other manufacturers such as Canon and Sony released similar for their CinemaEOS and popular FS5/FS7 cameras.
Of course it is free so there is no harm done in downloading it and learning a thing or two you probably didn’t know about your EVA1.
The submission period runs from beginning of June and closes on August 24th. The winners will be announced in early September during the IBC 2018 trade show in Amsterdam and will be published on the official EVA1 YouTube channel.
