The Panasonic AU-EVA1 Compact 5.7K Super 35mm Cinema Camera is a flexible camera system ready for documentary, cinema, and live event production. The 5.7K sensor is used to super-sample internal recordings, resulting in higher resolving images with less noise and artifacting when compared to non-super-sampled recordings. The standard native ISO is 800, which works for most production situations. With the Dual Native ISO, this can be switched to 2500 when working in dim scenarios.

EVA1 is a S35 newcomer in the likes of a Canon C300Mk2 or Sony FS7Mk2 but with better image quality and lighter weight. We use EVA primarily for narrative short films but it's extremely well suited for documentary style shooting as well.

Q: Is this the best low-light camera in its class?
A: An incredibly adequate low-light camera, it's not "the best". Many EVA owners and reviewers wouldn't want to shoot higher than 5000 ISO, especially if you're not planning to reduce noise in post. That being said, the image being sharper to start leaves some room to reduce noise and maintain incredible IQ.
Q: With this kit can I shoot all day?
A: For most shoots, this rental should provide enough power to get you through an 8-12hr day of non-stop shooting. Media wise, you can capture between 3hr 40min and 11hr depending on your recording options. Not recommended, but you can also choose to shoot FHD AVCHD and get something like 20hr out of this media without a transfer. Of course, this kit includes a dual battery charger and SD card reader to allow you to shoot to eternity.
Q: Can I shoot with PL glass?
A: Yes! We have a PL or EF mount option available.
Q: Do you have a _____ for EVA?
A: We probably do. If you can't find it listed in the doc or cine packages, ask us.
