Developed by Chinese start-up, Z, the E1 camera is an innovation in terms of size and technological features. In fact, it is claimed to be the smallest 4K Ultra HD camera with interchangeable lenses. That means MFT lenses are compatible with mainstream lenses such as Olympus, Panasonic Lumix, Leica and Sigma.
“With its small format and light weight, the E1 camera is an innovative alternative to more cumbersome SLR cameras,” states Mark Ivens, marketing manager at X-GEM UK.
The camera is equipped with the A9 processor developed by Ambarella and has a complete range of connections, with WiFi 802.11N and Bluetooth Low Energy.
“It can shoot video images in 4K at 24fps or UHD at 30fps with H.264 compression. MCTF 3D noise filter technology produces an image without any fuzzy edges or ghosting. It can shoot up to 102400 ISO, making it possible to shoot in very low light conditions,” reveals Ivens.
He concludes, “This model is very light − just 210g − which makes it ideal for use with drones.”
