Camera Configuration

Our EVA housing is optimised for the following camera configuration:

  • Panasonic AU-EVA1 Compact Cinema Camera (with side handle, top handle and monitor removed).
  • SmallHD 503 UltraBright with Sony L Series Battery Bracket
  • SDI Cable with 90 Degree port on monitor end (cannot protrude from monitor edge >22mm)

The camera battery, monitor batteries and SD card can all be changed without removing the camera or monitor from the baseplate.




Our EVA1 housing ships with our ‘STANDARD’ port system, which suits lenses up to 105mm diameter, which includes most Canon SLR lenses.

You can also choose to upgrade to the ‘CINE’ port system, which suits lenses up to 120mm in diameter. The upgrade to the ‘CINE’ port system may be done after purchase by simply unbolting the thread at the front of the housing. You do not need to send the housing back to us for the upgrade, it is ‘user-upgradable’. You can switch between the two port systems at any time.

Custom ports are available at request, including dome ports and zoom/focus ports.

The front element in all our ports is replaceable in less than 30 seconds by simply unscrewing the front locking ring and dropping in a replacement acrylic screen we offer for purchase. So no more spending hours buffing scratched ports!



The housing ships with two side handle grips. These are CNC machined from 6061 aluminium, and offer a very comfortable ODI Vans BMX grip.

There are several grip mounting points provided on the housing, allowing users to setup the handles to suit their individual requirement. The grips can be positioned at various locations along the housing, in high-mode or low-mode, and/or offset from each other.

The grips are removable with an Allen key for easy transporting of the housing.
