Z CAM S1 overview

  • 1Description

The compact S1 Professional VR Camera from Z CAM employs four Sony CMOS image sensors to capture high-quality spherical VR video at 6K30 or 4K60 fps. Use the included Z CAM's WonderLive and WonderStitch software downloads for live streaming and offline stitching of 4K60 fps equirectangular images with your Windows 10-based PC.

Each of its four fisheye lenses is constructed with 10-layer, professional-grade optics, minimizing distortion and flare. Unlike rig-based VR systems, the S1's four integrated sensors provide coordinated auto-exposure and white balance functions. The built-in Z CAM Sync Hardware ensures synchronized recording, and Z-Log gamma enables image fine-tuning and color grading.

The S1's compact, cylindrical body measures just over 9.5" high when used with its detachable battery unit. When powered via the included AC adapter, the S1 is under 6" high. With a slim, under 4" diameter form, the camera can be placed 2.6' or closer to subjects. SanDisk Extreme Pro cards are recommended for recording to the S1's four SD card slots.

Note: Stitching and live streaming requires a Windows 10 PC with two Ethernet cards; Mac compatibility to be available via a future update.
Four required 18650 lithium-ion batteries and a charger are not included with the camera.

    Z CAM S1 reviews

    S1 6K Professional VR Camera is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stitching and Live only for PC! Although I've read excellent reviews on this product's productivity, unfortunately it is non specified through advertising that software and workflow including live RTMP output or image stitching works only for PC. If you're a Mac user this means throwing in an extra 700 $ per year for a stitching program + not being able to transmit live.
