The Z CAM E2C Professional 4K Cinema Camera shoots UHD 4K at up to 29.97 fps, as well as HD up to 59.94 fps, and records to an SDXC Class 10 card (not included). The camera features a 4/3″ sensor with 10-bit color support and nominal 11.5 stops of dynamic range. The camera supports recording video in MOV/MP4 using H.265 for 10-bit recording, while H.264 supports 8-bit recording, and a recent firmware update allows the camera to record in the ZRAW format. Audio is recorded in 24-bit 48 kHz using AAC or PCM (PCM for MOV format only).

You can use an available iOS app to control the camera via Wi-Fi and to view a live image preview. You can also control it locally by the buttons along the front edge of the camera. The camera powers via PoE, an LP-E6-series battery (not included), or via a DC input port. An included LEMO to D-Tap power cable allows you to power the camera from a D-Tap source. An optional AC to DC power adapter can also power the camera.

Firmware 0.88 Update

Firmware 0.88 brings ZRAW recording to the camera.
