Z CAM E2 Cameras Firmware Update with ZRAW Capabilities

Good news for Z CAM E2 camera owners: the team at Z CAM released a new firmware update that unleashes ZRAW capabilities for various E2 camera models. Let’s take a closer look at it!

The team at Z CAM launched a new firmware (version 0.88) for their E2 and E2c cameras. This firmware – and future firmware versions – should also be compatible with the upcoming E2 S6/F6/F8 cameras that are expected to launch later this year.

Here is the complete list of the new features of this 0.88 firmware version:

  • Addition of ZRAW (partial-debayer), supports up to 4096×2160@30fps initially. 4K 60fps will be supported later.
  • No proxy recording is allowed when ZRAW is selected. You have to use an iOS device or the HDMI output to record proxy files.
  • Monitor preview LUT, x33 cube format.
  • Pre-rolling.
  • Possibility to capture still images (JPEG only).
  • VFR fine control, one frame per step.
  • Native ISO toggle control.
  • Parade view.

They also improved and corrected some bugs:

  • Card formatting compatibility.
  • AWB always use a white priority in Z-Log2.
  • Performance optimisation.
  • Bugs fixed: Time Code sync to an external device and other minor bug fixes.

It’s always nice to see a manufacturer bringing new functionalities and long-awaited features to a product. Otherwise, there would be very little information about this new RAW format.
