Create Your Look
The AU-EVA1 can capture a wide range of exposure, dynamic range and color gamut. The EVA1 can record in a V-Log mode for maximum adjustability in post, or to a Scene File that precisely sets a wide variety of parameters to capture a specific look in camera for a fast turnaround and simple post. The EVA1 includes five factory preset Scene Files (two Cinema-style looks, two Broadcast-style looks, and an HLG [Hyper Log/Gamma] look for HDR production). These Scene Files can be customized to the user’s preference and new Scene Files can be created. Scene Files can be saved in the EVA1, as well as loaded onto an SD card for later use. Note that a basic, inexpensive SD card can be used to store Scene Files and the EVA1 can be reset to the factory presets at any time.
As part of the development of the VariCam LUT Library, Panasonic partnered with AbelCine to develop a series of Scene Files for the EVA1. AbelCine created 15 Scene Files based on the VariCam LUT Library looks, as well as four Scene Files that match the standard looks they have created for many cameras. Follow the instructions below to download and install the EVA1 Scene Files.
