The newly developed three 1/3-type Exmor R CMOS im- age sensors capture RGB light independently and deliver 4K 50p/60p imagery with high resolution and a wide range of gradation.
In HD shooting, 4:2:2 10-bit ensures vivid and rich color content.
The PXW-Z190 is equipped with a 25x professional zoom lens able to zoom from 28.8mm to 720mm (35mm equivalent). The 1/3-inch type lens has three independent control rings, which allows manual control of focus, zoom and iris, making for better and faster adjustment.
The image can be enlarged without any picture degradation in an HD mode and a 50x zoom equivalent image is captured with sensor cropping extender.
The PXW-Z190 features newly developed Face Detection AF, selectable from Face Priority AF or Face Only AF. Simply keep the person in frame and however, you move to obtain a better angle, you can be confident the PXW-Z190 will keep your subject in pin-sharp focus.
Sony’s ground-breaking integration of electronic variable ND Filters into the body of a camcorder enables fast, agile shooting. Moving from shadowy interiors to bright sun-lit exteriors is no problem with the PXW-Z190. Unlike conventional optical ND filters, the electronic ND filter on the PXW-Z190 can be controlled from 1/4ND to 1/128ND linearly while ND Filters can be set to fully auto. You can even manually adjust Depth of Field using the iris lens ring, while relying on the PXW-Z190 to maintain constant exposure without changing gain nor shutter speed.
Shoot, edit and view HDR content in HLG without the need for additional colour grading. Premium content services are switching to HDR and the PXW-Z190 is ready with Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) recording, for easy file-based workflows, whilst achieving the image quality of HDR. This simple workflow enables the shooting, editing and viewing of HDR content in HLG, without devoting a lot of time to post-production work and additional colour grading.
Dual MI shoe enables the use of a wireless microphone and video light at the same time to achieve further flexibility. When using Sony’s UWP-D series wireless microphone**, audio signals can be delivered without cabling – eliminating the risk of accidental disconnection. Enhanced 4-channel audio recording is supported by a combination of 2 XLR inputs and audio input via an MI shoe.
