Join AbelCine and Panasonic Pro Video USA
for a special event on Wednesday, July 11 in LA: An Evening with the Panasonic EVA1
This event will highlight both the technical and creative applications of the Panasonic EVA1. Special guest cinematographer Elle Schneider will discuss her experience using the camera and will screen examples of projects she worked on with the EVA1. You will also have ample time to go hands on with the camera, as well as network with your fellow professionals. Additionally, AbelCine and Panasonic specialists will be available to answer all your questions.
The Panasonic EVA1 is compact, lightweight, and tailor-made for handheld shooting, but also well-suited for documentaries, commercials, and music videos. The EVA1 contains a newly designed 5.7K Super 35mm-sized sensor for capturing true cinematic images. By starting at a higher native resolution, the 5.7K sensor yields a higher resolving image when down sampled to 4K, UHD, 2K, and even 720p. The increased color information results in a finer, more accurate finished image. Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) is employed in the Panasonic EVA1 to compensate for camera shake and blurring, which will help smooth out handheld or shoulder-mount shots on documentary or run-and-gun projects.
