Budget oriented camera maker Z CAM has added another affordable and enticing member to its product lineup. The just-announced Z CAM E2-M4 is basically identical to the existing E2 sporting exactly the same sensor and body.
Unlike the fixed mount on the E2, however, the E2-M4 has an interchangeable MFT mount. Additional options include Canon EF, PL, and M mounts. The newcomer is expected to hit the market in June selling for $1,499 which is $500 cheaper than the original Z CAM E2.
It’s also worth mentioning that as with the other E-series Z CAM cameras, the E2-M4 will support 12-bit ProRes Raw recording over HDMI when used with select Atomos monitor-recorders.
Other appealing features include high-frame-rate capabilities in 4K, 10-bit internal, and 12-bit external recording, 13 stops of dynamic range, upcoming direct RTMP, RTMPS, and SRT live streaming, and more.
