Atomos Announces Support for 5.7K RAW Recording off of the new Panasonic EVA1
I was a long time Panasonic fan and while they fell flat back when they released the AF100 at the beginning of the low price cinema camera revolution, I think the newly announced EVA1 could be a return to form and an exciting product in the market.
While the camera will record 4K internally, the sensor is a 5.7K S35 size that can sent to an external recorder for capturing the image unscaled off of the sensor. Atoms is the first to announce RAW recording support for the upcoming cinema camera via the Shogun Inferno.
The 5.7K signal is sent over 6G SDI to the Shogun Inferno where it be encoded to ProRes or DNxHR. Atomos will also support 4K Raw recording to CDNG Raw, along with Apple ProRes and Avid’s DNxHR (5.7K output will be supported with the planned Panasonic firmware release).
The Shogun will also allow for HDR monitoring on the EVA1 making it a possible must-have for some future EVA1 shooters out there who want an all in one HDR monitoring and recording solution.
