From Z Cam some several news: in the beginning of June an E2-M4 version will be released, which is similar to the E2 in terms of functionality, but doesn&t have a sync option (the Lemo port is missing). The camera body is slightly different, another difference -- also a plus point -- is the possibility to change the MFT mount to EF, PL or M. The E2-M4, which is offered for 1,499, will also be cheaper, while the old, multicam-capable E2 will remain in the range for 1,999.

The E2 as well as the E2-M4 is equipped with a 4/3" WDR CMOS sensor and films in Cinema-4K with 10bit in up to 120fps (in H.265); in 4K 2.4:1 (3840 x 1620) even 160fps are possible. Besides ZRaw, several ProRes (422) variants are implemented, soon Apple&s ProRes RAW format can be recorded externally via HDMI in combination with the Atomos Ninja V monitor/recorder. The internal recording is done on CFast 2.0 cards. A preview display is not on board on these compact cameras.

The prices of the two E2 variants which film in 6K are lowered -- the Z CAM E2-S6 with Super35 sensor is now available for ,499 (instead of ,995), while the full-frame Z CAM E2-F6 is a whole 1,000 cheaper. It now costs ,999.
With an upcoming firmware update, all models of the Z CAM E2 series will also support live streaming via RTMP, RTMPS and SRT. Streams can thus be sent to Facebook, YouTube & co. without the need for a computer.
