Panasonic has announced a firmware upgrade to its EVA1 compact cinema camera that, among other improvements, will see the camera capable of recording ALL-I codecs and outputting RAW.
The free upgrade, available from the end of March, means the super 35mm sensor camera will now support Panasonic ALL-Intra codecs, RAW output, time lapse recording as well as a new HD 422 interlaced codec, for TV applications.
Remote operation is now also possible using third party wired controllers, allowing focus and iris control for diverse lens options, as well as zoom control for Canon compact cine servo zoom.
Additionally, six Sigma ART lenses are also newly supported.
LCD signal cloning to HDMI, as well as additional home screen indicators improve monitoring in the camera. To improve the workflow, Panasonic has also added the capability to output ancillary data for RAW such as time code, RAC flag and also VANC metadata on SDI.
