The Z CAM E2-M4 Professional 4K Cinema Camera features an interchangeable Micro Four Thirds lens mount, a Flagship Series housing, and like all Z CAM E2s with the latest update, the ability to record ProRes RAW using select Atomos recorder/monitors. This compact camera records DCI and UHD 4K at up to 160 fps, as well as HD up to 240 fps, and records to a CFast 2.0 card (not included). A future update will enable the E2-M4 to will support RTMP, RTPS, and SRT live streaming directly from the camera without requiring a computer. The camera features a 4/3″ sensor with 10/12-bit colour support and nominal 13 stops of dynamic range with 16 stops when set to WDR. ISO settings include 500 and 2500 in native mode, 250 and 1250 with WDR activated, and a total manual range of 500 to 102,400. The E2-M4 supports H.265 and H.264 codecs for efficient compressing of your images, and with firmware update 0.98.0 it supports ProRes 422 in all resolution and frame rate combinations and offers proxy recording in separate files.

The E2-M4 can be controlled via serial ports, a 2.5mm LANC connector, a USB Type-C port, an Ethernet port, or by the Z Camera iOS app to control the camera via Wi-Fi and to view a live image preview and to configure settings. The camera can record time-lapse, slow motion, and can even live stream via its Gigabit Ethernet port. Power the E2-M4 camera from a separately available L-series battery or AC adapter.
