EXTRACT FROM PRESS RELEASE
“The EVA1’s 5.7K Super-35 sensor has almost twice as many photosites as 4K,” noted Luc Bara, Cinema Product Manager Europe for Panasonic. “That means the 4K videos recorded in the camera will be crystal clear with rich colour information. The EVA1 also inherits the unique dual native ISO sensor technology from our cinema VariCam line, allowing it to shoot in bright sunlight or night exteriors without compromising the image quality. And the 14 stops of dynamic range capture a huge scope of exposure detail.”
