When it comes to cameras, Z-Cam feels like the new kid on the block. Before NAB earlier this year, nobody had heard of them, and now they seem to be everywhere. Recently, they announced three new flagship cameras, the E2-S6 6K, E2-F6 6K and E2-F8 8K so we stopped by their stand at IBC 2019 to find out more about them.
Z-Cam was pretty much unheard of until relatively recently, but they made quite a big splash at NAB earlier this year. They had a pretty sizeable stand offering up some pretty big promises for the filmmaking industry with a set of 4K, 6K and 8K cameras. The 4K Z-Cam E2C was announced just over a week ago, and now the company has followed through with their full-frame E2 F6 and E2 F8 models, capable of shooting 6K and 8K respectively.
They’re both pretty bare-bones, boxy-looking cameras sold with no accessories. But when you consider that they’re priced at $5K and $6K each, with both available in either EF or PL lens mounts, one can hardly expect much more than they’re already offering.
