Other features include:
– 2 SD card slots
– 14 stops of Dynamic Range
– V-Gamut and V-Log Color space
– ISO range: 100 – 25,600
– Built in ND filters (2/4/6 Stops)
– IR filter on/off
– Light weight: 2.65 lbs
– Video outputs: LCD, HDMI, SDI (details in video)
– Timecode I/O port

Panasonic say the EVA1 is designed to match the output of their Varicam line, so you can mix and match the usage of these cameras to get the same look. They are planning to make uncompressed RAW data output a possibility via SDI.
