Z CAM E2C

The Z CAM E2C is a highly affordable 4K cinema camera that packs a powerful punch in a small body. With a 4/3 CMOS sensor and Micro 4/3 lens mount it is capable of producing results that defy its compact proportions. Adding the Ninja V HDR monitor-recorder transforms the Z CAM E2C into a complete RAW shooting system. Capture stunning 12-bit Apple ProRes RAW at up to 4Kp30 over HDMI directly from the camera’s sensor for maximum detail in shadows and highlights, then monitor accurately on the state-of-the-art Ninja V high brightness screen for perfect HDR or SDR images. Simply put the Ninja V will give Z CAM users the best possible image from the camera.

E2C

Record RAW over HDMI

At the heart of the Z CAM E2 is a 4/3” CMOS sensor with excellent 4K image quality, color science and low light sensitivity. All details can be perfectly preserved when sent over HDMI to the Ninja V for recording in 12-bit ProRes RAW, bypassing the camera’s internal processing and delivering the data for superior processing in the computer. For extreme reliability and affordability the Ninja V records to AtomX SSD mini SATA drives, or other approved SSD media. The Z CAM E2C and Ninja V will gain the ability to record 12-bit Apple ProRes RAW at up to 4Kp30 via free firmware from Z CAM and an AtomOS update from Atomos.

Go anywhere RAW perfection

Filmmakers have fallen in love with the Z CAM E2C for its portability and amazing image quality. With a Ninja V and a couple of lenses it is still small enough to take almost anywhere and instantly be ready to shoot. Now you can capture those fleeting moments and preserve them forever in full ProRes RAW quality. Once the full RAW image quality of the Z CAM E2C and Ninja V combination is experienced you’ll just want to keep shooting at every opportunity.

Z CAM E2 Series + ProRes RAW recording

The Ninja V can record 5.8K ProRes RAW at up to 29.97p and up to 4K (UHD) up to 59.94p from all three Flagship models: the E2-S6, E2-F6 and E2-F8. The E2 and new E2-M4 will output RAW at up to DCI 4Kp59.94 for recording in ProRes RAW. The E2C can output RAW at DCI 4K 29.97p to the Ninja V. The frame rates available for RAW over HDMI recording vary depending on the camera model.

Take control of the Z CAM

Atomos have also released new camera control functions for all Z CAM models that allow key functions to be set from the Ninja V via the monitor’s touchscreen. The Ninja V connects via USB-C and allows two-way communication for a range of controls such as record start/stop, iris, shutter speed, ISO and eND. The Control feature works whether recording internally in the camera, or externally to the Ninja V. The camera constantly updates the Ninja V with the value of each setting, which is in turn displayed clearly on the monitor. As a result you can now record ProRes RAW from the camera and still be able to control main camera functions at the same time on the Ninja V screen.

Atomos monitoring

The Ninja V is the ideal monitor for the E2 range. Atomos’ state of the art, high brightness HDR screen technology on the Ninja V becomes the ultimate monitoring solution for the E2. The Ninja V also allows users to accurately monitor the RAW signal on its daylight-viewable 5” HDR screen, previewing it for HDR in a choice of HLG and PQ (HDR10) formats. It offers touchscreen access to tools like waveforms, magnify or engage peaking check focus for each angle and make any adjustments to get the perfect HDR or SDR shots.


Z CAM E2 and Ninja V - a formidable duo

Combined with the RAW power of the Ninja V the Z CAM E2 has a plethora of uses. The camera already has a proven track record for commercials, documentaries, TV series and even feature films. There are also an increasing number of creative and innovative applications, such as volumetric and underwater capture, that leverage the unique capabilities and small form factor of the camera. With the ultimate picture quality the Ninja V and ProRes RAW bring to the E2 there’s almost no limit to your creativity.



The ProRes RAW Advantage

Creators are granted complete creative control of their video images in post-production as Apple ProRes RAW combines the flexibility of RAW video with the real-time performance of ProRes. The format gives filmmakers incredible latitude when adjusting the look of the their images and extending brightness and shadow detail – making ProRes RAW ideal for HDR workflows.



In addition to their groundbreaking combination of flexibility and performance, ProRes RAW files are smaller than other RAW files – simplifying and accelerating file transfer, media management, and archiving. ProRes RAW files can easily be edited on most modern Apple Mac systems.
