Camera & Accessories

Panasonic EVA1

The Panasonic EVA1 is a Super35mm digital cinema camera with a 5.7K sensor, giving it the capability of recording supersampled 4K footage while maintaining superb color accuracy, Dual Native ISO (base 800 and 2500) for incredible low-light performance, and renowned V-LOG color science from Panasonic as seen in the EVA’s bigger brother, the Varicam. This is the best camera for color accuracy in its price range.

The EVA1 is Canon EF mount, and it can record full 5.7K RAW if attached to a Shogun Inferno. It has two XLR inputs, is incredibly light, and comes with an included shoulder rig, three batteries capable of powering the body for at least 6-8 hours straight, and 256GB in media (4x 64gb SDXC cards).

Tiffen 4×4 Filter Kit

Kit Includes

  • 3x Black Pro Mist (½, 1, 2)
  • 3x Ultra Contrast (1, 3, 5)
  • 4 Point Star (2mm)
  • Linear Polarizer
  • Center Spot

The Tiffen Black Pro-Mist Filter (1/2, 1, 2) helps to reduce the value of the highlights while slightly lowering the overall contrast. In the stronger filters, a fog or misty effect tends to be noticeable. This filter is especially useful for smoothing out and softening facial wrinkles and other blemishes. While designed for use with movies, this filter can also be used for fashion and beauty applications. Pro-Mist filters provide little loss of detail across the image.

Polarizers provide color and contrast enhancement. Reflected light often shows up as whitish glare that washes out color in an image. A Polarizer corrects this problem producing deep, dramatically blue skies. It also removes glare from non-metallic surfaces, such as windows and water. Color saturation in general, especially outdoors, can be improved significantly.

Requires a Matte Box with 4″x4″ trays.

Single Filter: $15 / Day
3x Filters: $35 / Day
Whole Kit: $70 / Day

This makes the matte box suitable for use with gimbals and Steadicams, and the removable hood makes the matte box an excellent choice for aerial shooting.
