Panasonic AU-EVA1 Cinema Camera
The Panasonic AU-EVA1 Cinema Camera houses a high-resolution 5.7K image sensor capable of rendering smooth 4K images. It is a flexible camera system ready for documentary, cinema, and live event production. The 5.7K sensor is used to super-sample internal recordings resulting in higher resolving images with less noise and artifacts when compared to non-super-sampled recordings. Panasonic’s acclaimed Dual Native ISO technology is also incorporated into this sensor. Dual Native ISO uses alternative circuitry within the sensor, rather than adding gain or shifting the gamma of the original signal output, to increase sensitivity while maintaining a high signal-to-noise ratio. It is for these reasons we chose the Panasonic AU-EVA1 to capture images of Cynthia Berg’s painting in this mini-doc.
Cynthia Berg is an oil painter from Denver, CO. She’s been painting for years, and her paintings vary in detail, color, and format. These details and variations require a high resolution camera system to render images as close to the artist’s original rendering as possible. Even if the documentary will eventually display in a 1080P format as it will on the internet, if one needs to maintain sharp detail and color contrast one should still capture at a high resolution. Using the Panasonic AU-EVA1, recording at one of its 4K resolutions, and then downscaling to a 1080 format will reduce noise and maintain detail. We’re sure any artist would appreciate that.
