The Z CAM E2C 4K Cinema Camera is an entry-level micro-4/3 sensor camera that’s useful when budget and size restrictions are of the utmost importance. Key features include:

  • 17.56 × 13.11mm, M43, CMOS sensor with 11.5-stop dynamic range

  • Records in 10-bit H.265 up to UHD 4K to SDXC media

  • Active M43 mount for compatibility with most Olympus and Panasonic lenses

  • Powered by common Canon LP-E6 and LP-E6N batteries

Cheap & Small. 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. That’s certainly the case with the Z Cam E2C 4K Cinema Camera. Much like the Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera, the E2C is not much more than a sensor in a tiny box.

H.265 Internal Recording. This camera can capture up to 10-bit UHD 4K/30p to Class 10 SDXC cards using an H.265 recording codec. The sensor is Micro Four Thirds size and capable of 11.5-stops of dynamic range.

Wireless Control. On-board controls are certainly limited by the small amount of real estate on the body itself, but users can connect to the camera’s ad hoc Wi-Fi for direct control with an iOS app. A live view is even provided for some basic monitoring. If you would rather not connect a mobile device, the small LCD panel will give you critical exposure, battery, and media information.

M43 Lens Mount. The E2C has an active Micro 4/3 lens mount with compatibility with a number of Olympus and Panasonic lenses (see the official list in the Resources column). Any manual lens with a MFT mount and coverage will work as well.

Powered by LP-E6 Batteries or D-Tap. We include a Canon LP-E6N battery and charger with this rental but also include a d-tap cable for powering from larger cinema batteries or other sources with d-tap outputs (not included). If you’ll be connecting this camera to a wired LAN, it can also be powered via PoE. No AC adapter is included with this rental.

Q & A

Is there an Android control app?

  • There is an Android app released, but it's still in development, and a bit, shall we say, tempermental.

Does this rental include an AC adapter?
  • No. This rental does not include an AC adapter. We do include one Canon LP-E6N battery and charger as well as a d-tap cable.

Will this camera record ProRes or RAW?
  • No. This camera is only capable of recording to a H.265 or H.264 codec. While promised as an eventual firmware update, ProRes is not currently available (as of Oct. 2019).
