Z-Cam C1 launched as the world’s smallest Micro 4/3 sensor with 4K capability, interchangeable lens action camera. It is the successor of Z-cam E1 Mini 4K, which was launched last year. Since, the camera spotted by Newshoooter at the NAB Show.
The module of the Z-Cam C1 has more round shape and a small touchscreen on its rear side compare to E1 and it is designed for both capturing photos and video. It has a Micro 4/3 Sony IMX159 sensor and it records at up to 60 Mbps to internal SD card.
The camera can shoot 4K UHD video internally at 30, 25 and 24 fps with both auto or manually. The Z-Cam C1 comes in three versions. The first version only outputs 1080p HD via the HDMI. The second version C1 S outputs 14-bit 4K video and the Raw output version it the third version named Z-C1 R, but we have no detailed information about it.
According to the Newsshooter :
“The C1 has a Micro 4/3 sensor and records at up to 60 Mbps to internal SD card. The sensor itself is a Sony IMX159, the same sensor found in some Olympus cameras. There are no high resolution sample videos from the C1 available yet so it is hard to gauge how good the results will be. We were told it can shoot 4K UHD video internally at 30, 25 and 24 fps and can be either auto, or manual exposure. There are actually three different versions of the C1, the basic one only outputs 1080p HD via the HDMI. The C1 S outputs 4K video and we were told this output is 14-bit.”
The Z-Cam C1 will be available at the cost of $599 in coming days.
