Sony PXW-Z90V XDCAM 4K HDR Camera System


The Sony PXW-Z90V XDCAM 4K HDR Camera System is an ultra compact camcorder and the first in its size class to offer 4K HDR with Hybrid Log-Gamma file-based workflows. Here are some of the standout features of this "palmcorder":

Enhanced Sensor and Fast Autofocus

Using 273 phase-detection AF points along with a new algorithm, the PXW-Z90V performs highly accurate focusing and tracking. Pull and push focus simply by touching the LCD screen or take on even the fastest action with the enhanced Fast Hybrid AF, which uses these dense AF points alongside face detection and lock-on technology to estimate your subject's next move. Choose your exact creative AF needs using AF Drive Speed, AF Track Depth, and AF Switching Sensitivity. Whether you're covering stampeding wildlife or talking-head documentary footage, you can maintain tack-sharp focus – which is further helped with built-in optical image stabilization.

The 1" sensor is back-illuminated and offers cutting-edge light sensitivity for its size (which is approximately equivalent to a 16mm film frame). This sensor technology uses stacked pixel architecture so that you can enjoy a larger resolution in a smaller overall package, with the added benefit of less rolling shutter effects. It also achieves faster data readout. Sony's Clear Image Zoom uses a crop of the sensor to deliver extended zoom (up to 18x) without loss of quality.

Versatile Recording Performance and Smart Design

Get up to 120 frames per second in Full HD for stunning slow motion results. Choose from among a variety of formats, frame rates, and codecs with support for 100Mbps XAVC Long recording in 4K. You'll have full image control with S-Log3/S-Gamut3 plus several different picture styles. Two SD card slots are available for simultaneous or relay recording. START/STOP is accessible on both the handle grip and on the camcorder body. Despite the small size, this camera is equipped with a wide selection of connections including dual XLR inputs (plus a 3.5mm input) for external microphones, and broadcast standard 3G-SDI and full-size HDMI to link an external recording device. It also has built-in WiFi for advanced wireless production options, including streaming to network servers, USTREAM, and Sony’s XDCAM AIR.

Tactile dials/buttons on the side of the body provide swift adjustment of aperture, ISO, and shutter speed. Creative control over your exposure is further helped with the built-in ND filters. Frame your footage comfortably even in the brightest conditions using the 0.39-type 2359K dot OLED EVF and oversized eye cup. Completely kitted out, this camera system still only tops out at about 3 lbs. It is ideal for news gathering, journalism, documentary, or any recording job that requires ultimate mobility.
