Z CAM has just introduced their new Z CAM E2-M4 camera. Keeping the same familiar boxy and compact form factor of the original E2 camera, the new E2-M4 comes with a 4/3″ sized sensor and MFT mount.

However, unlike the E2, the new Z CAM E2-M4 has interchangeable lens mount supporting EF and PL. This is a user-serviceable upgrade/feature, which appears to be done with just 4 screws on the front in a similar way you’d do it on a RED camera. 

Furthermore, Z CAM is sweetening their E2 camera line-up with an upcoming Direct Streaming ability to popular social media platforms, which is huge!
