Panasonic has announced its third firmware upgrade to the EVA1 camera which provides greater cost efficient and futureproofing for the handheld cinema camera.

The free upgrade is available this month (31 January 2019), with a key feature being a new HEVC H.265 codec that can record in 4K 50p/60p video with 4:2:0 10bit video sampling.
