The Z CAM E2 4K Cinema Camera is an entry-level micro-4/3 sensor camera capable of ProRes and ZRAW recording, useful when budget and size restrictions are of the utmost importance.

4K Capture and Recording

The Z CAM E2 Professional 4K Cinema Camera shoots DCI and UHD 4K at up to 160 fps, as well as HD up to 240 fps, and records to a CFast 2.0 card. The camera features a 4/3" sensor with 10-bit colour support and nominal 13 stops of dynamic range with 16 stops when setting to WDR. The camera supports recording in ProRes 422 in 10-bit, as well as H.265 and H.264 codecs for efficient compressing of your image.

Wireless Control

 While the Z Cam E2 does feature an LCD for interfacing, it doesn’t offer a live view option, and on-board controls are limited by the small amount of real estate on the body itself. Fortunately, users can connect to the camera’s ad hoc Wi-Fi for direct control with the free Z Camera app on compatible iOS or Android devices.

Z Camera App (iOS & Android)

Z Camera is a mobile application for camera live preview and control through Wi-Fi/USB cable connection. It allows you to start/stop recording and adjust the camera settings remotely, and also has advanced features on-camera live preview. It can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store by searching "Z Camera".

M43 Lens Mount

The E2 has an active Micro 4/3 lens mount with compatibility with several Olympus and Panasonic lenses. Any manual lens with an MFT mount and coverage will work as well.

Quality Build

Z Cam seems to have found their niche with entry-level cameras that are not much bigger than the lenses that will attach to them. Made from aluminium, it offers strength and heat dissipation. It has nine threaded mounting holes around the outside chassis. Sensor plane marking ensures accurate distance measurements. The camera powers from an L-series battery or via the included AC adapter.
