Back in July this year we checked the latest KickStarter camera products and alighted on the 'smallest micro four thirds camera in the world' E1 (I think DJI's X5/X5R might have something to say about that). It had some credibility as one of the main designers was ex-GoPro so knew a thing or two about making small stuff and the chief designer was ex-Ambarella, the chip designers who make most of the GoPro sensors. Well the E1 from Z Camera is now available from photo retailer Adorama. (The E1 exceeded its funding goals by 400%).
E1 is a 4K interchangeable lens camera and so supports a wide array of autofocus lenses from Olympus, Panasonic, Lumix, Leica and Sigma, and also supports a variety of manual focus lenses.
The Z Camera E1 is now available for USD$699 at Adorama. Features include:
- 4K cinema video, 24 fps with slow motion in 720p and 16 megapixels
- Advanced 3D noise filters using motion compensated temporal filtering (MCTF) technology, reducing noise, jitter, blurring and ghosting
- Incredible low light performance with the ability to shoot ISO 102400 while maintaining high image quality up to ISO 6400
- Controllable by phone via the E1 Camera App, including start and stop filming, photo shooting and more.
