Panasonic AU-EVA1 Super 35mm 5.7K Sensor Cinema Camera
So much has definitely been said about the Canon C200. With its unparalleled features such as internal raw recording, it is easy to understand why it has been the talk of the town. While everyone was concentrating on the Canon, how well it will blend with an array of Sony products, very little was spoken of Panasonic. It is understandable because Panasonic did not have a feature rich camera with interchangeable lenses abilities and 4K camera at a price under US$8000. In the next couple of months, however, the story will be different. After the initial release of the details of Panasonic AU-EVA1 footage and other details, professional photographers can excitedly look forward to a fantastic product.
