The Z Cam E2 lineup is comprised of three models, the namesake E2, the E2C and the E2G.

The E2 is the true powerhouse of the series and features a 4/3″ WDR CMOS sensor generating 10-bit color with up to 16 stops of dynamic range.  C4K can be recorded at up to 160fps in a variety of ProRes flavors as well as Z Cam’s ZRAW partial-debayer raw codec.  A MFT lens-mount means the E2 can be used with a variety of open-source lenses from Panasonic, Olympus, and Sigma.

Key Camera Specifications:

  • 4/3″ WDR CMOS sensor
  • MFT Lens Mount
  • 10-bit C4K at 160fps
  • ProRes 422HQ or ZRAW (partial debayer)


The NA-E2 sets the standard as the lightest and smallest raw-capable cinema housing ever produced.  Nauticam has been a leader in cinema housings with offerings for RED, ARRI, Canon, PhantomFlex, Sony and now Z Cam.

The NA-E2 uses the N85 port system, shared with Nauticam’s other MFT platform cameras which allows for easy transition to the NA-E2 from other MFT Nauticam systems.  The N85 system also provides access to Nauticam’s line of professional premium optics such as the WWL-1 and CMC-1/2.

A dedicated record lever is located on the right side of the housing within easy reach of the adjustable ergonomic handles.  1/4″-20 size mounting threads are located on the top and bottom of the housing for easy mounting of cinema accessories.

The E2 supports Sony NP-F series batteries and the NA-E2 matches this compatibility up to and including the FP-970.

As with the NA-BMPCC2, the NA-E2 allows for the internal mounting of a Samsung T-5 SSD drive as recording media making the transition from capture to edit seamless.

The Z Cam E2 requires an external monitor and Nauticam produces several options for both SmallHD and Atomos monitors.  The NA-E2 features both an M28 and two M-16 bulkheads supporting both HDMI 2.0 (M28) and HDMI 1.4 (M16) connections.
