Panasonic has reduced the price of the Panasonic AU-EVA 1 camera. The drop knocks $1000 off, bringing the price down to $6495.
It’s funny to think that it’s been 18 months since the announcement of Panasonic AU-EVA 1. It emerged almost alongside the Canon C200, offering stiff competition to Sony FS5 in the entry level super35mm camcorder market.
The reduced price of $6495 makes the Panasonic AU-EVA $1000 cheaper than a Canon C200 and some $1200 more than the older Sony FS5.
It’s a true Panasonic camera – great bang for buck with a broad user base, lesser known in the hire industry.
The Dual ISO, high frame-rates and 14 stops of dynamic range makes it an interesting option, The Camera is capable of 4K 10bit 422 internally, up to 100/120P in 2K, and 5.7K raw up to 30p thanks to an Atomos update last year.

18 months is about right for more significant price reductions like this. It’s often a good time to purchase a camera package that works for you; the industry has had time to adapt with workflows and accessories, and you can get a good deal.
Comparatively speaking there’s not a great deal of difference price wise in buying a small camcorder like this than spec’ing up a mirrorless camera for video.
