The first pictures of a working Panasonic EVA-1…Still no pricing ? UPDATED

Categories: Miscellaneous 1 Comment

Interesting that this Panasonic EVA-1 is fully kitted with Zacuto gear, the lead coming from the back of the EVA-1 is in fact an SDI cable and not a power lead as 1st thought.

Still no pricing from Panasonic though Nigel Wilkes from Panasonic Broadcast UK has just tweeted this… “The final announcements about EVA1 will be released next week…..it’s coming!”

Filippo Chiesa and Takahiro Mitsui (King of EVA1) out doing some filming in Iceland with a working pre production EVA-1.

Interesting to also note them using a Canon DSLR rather than a Lumix GH5. This story also tells us that in order to use the EVA-1 for critical focus you need a 3rd party EVF.

Update…New Tweet from Nigel Wilkes…”Crazy made up pricing for EVA1 being discussed on social media. Ignore it…and just wait until next week”

Yet WEX have the Panasonic EVA-1 priced at a ridiculous price of £8,999 and I bet they have not had one order at this made up price. Sorry Nigel you have yourselves to blame taking far too long to come up with a price for a camcorder that I have already blogged about costing no more than £5,499 incl vat you know the competition and how sluggish the market is so lets hope sense prevails.

    This is true for many cine cameras.

    How many cameras come with a great EVF?
