Great news for those of you who want to jump on the EVA1 bandwagon – Panasonic have now officially slashed $1,000 off the previous MSRP of the camera. Kicking-off 2019 with a bang, Panasonic just slashed a good chunk of the price of their 5.7K AU-EVA1 camera, which is now selling at authorised dealers such as B&H for $6,495. This of course, excludes any sales taxes.
The Panasonic AU-EVA1 ticks a lot of boxes for many shooters, thanks to its compact size and lightweight form-factor in addition to solid on-board recording options. The EVA1 has been designed for handheld shooting, but is also suited for documentaries, events, commercials, and music videos.
The newly-designed 5.7K Super 35mm sized sensor can capture up to 14-stops of latitude and features Dual Native ISOs of 800 and 2,500, which will allow cinematographers to shoot in almost any lighting environment.

A friendly reminder, that the 5.7K resolution is only achieved in ProRes Raw, once captured on an Atomos Shogun Inferno external recorder. However, for those looking for some internal 4K, the EVA1 offers solid 10bit 422 internal options.
