Introducing NA-E2

The Z Cam E2

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 Nauticam NA-E2 Housing

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.

Features

Patented Port Locking System

Unveiled on the very first Nauticam DSLR housing in 2009, this locking lever has become a signature of the Nauticam brand.  No twisting or threading action is required to mount a port, and it locks securely in place with this lever.  Nauticam also offers locking port extensions, meaning a dome will never twist, even when used with a long extension ring.

Mission Control Design

Nauticam engineers are driven to make the housings as easy and intuitive to insure you don't miss a shot.  The dedicated record lever is placed within easy reach of the ergonomic adjustable handles.

HDMI 2.0 Support

The NA-E2 features an M28 bulkhead to support HDMI 2.0 output as well as two M16 bulkheads for HDMI 1.4 allowing for the use of a variety of external monitors and recorders.
