We first heard rumors about Panasonic's new digital video camera leading up to NAB 2017, and when we finally saw the original specs at the Cine Gear Expo, we declared that it might be the ultimate indie cinema camera.

The EVA1 features dual native ISO, 5.7K (5720 x 3016) resolution on a Super 35 CMOS sensor, a 10-bit 4:2:2 internal codec for 4K and full HD and internal data rates up to 400 Mbps all for under $8,000

As part of Panasonic's official launch of films created with the camera, the company has released footage shot by Italian DP Filippo Chiesa, as well as other behind-the-scenes videos for 4K viewing.
