Z CAM Renowned Image Quality
Z CAM Cinema Flagship Series Cameras
Packed with state-of-the art capabilities, each of the Z CAM flagship models is rugged and compact, sharing a standard size, ergonomic operational and interface layout. They all offer intuitive operation, versatile customization and the ability to capture rich cinema-quality video – and they're also perfect for live-streaming applications.
All Z CAM flagship models have the same-size chassis and share the same ergonomics. They utilize CFast 2.0 media and sport a full-size HDMI port for up to 4K monitoring. They also feature a Sony Type L series battery mount, standard Lemo 2-pin power in (DTap included) LAN port, USB-C port, WiFi antenna, CTL ports for triggering, remote and optional TC adapter, dual Lemo XLR audio input with Phantom power, and an auxiliary 12v accessory power-out port.
Z CAM Unique Operation & Remote Control Capability
Z CAM cameras all have a built-in OLED that can display menus, status, timecode run, audio and battery levels. The OLED can also display a confidence camera image. To speed up operation, there are programmable function buttons and quick menu buttons. The simple Ops Menu is organized under nine main headings.
All camera functions can also be controlled in direct mode connected via LAN cable and calling the IP address in the web browser. There is also a companion Apple/Android app, and a device can control all camera function while streaming video to the device either over WiFi or tethered via USB-C.
Z CAM E2 Camera MFT Mount
The original Z CAM E2 M4/3 4K cinema camera was first announced in late 2018 and has since garnered wide recognition in the indie production market. An affordable entry-level E2C model was also announced soon after at NAB 2019, now on production hold due to parts availability. Both the original E2 and the E2C have unique smaller bodies than the flagship series. The original E2 and the flagship E2 M4 are virtually identical, other than body size, general ergonomic differences and one unique feature – remote sync capability. The original E2 therefore can be synchronized in either 3D beam split rigs or multi-cam Big Freeze-style applications when you want to fly in real time around a subject Matrix style.
