Sony has debuted three new 4K cameras at NAB.
They include the PXW-Z280 which the company says “will become the flagship model for broadcasters and production companies.”
The PXW-Z280 has three 1/2-type Exmor R CMOS image sensors, and delivers high sensitivity of F12 (59.94p), long zoom ratio and deep depth of field. The camera supports 4K 50p/60p recording capability and 12G-SDI output as well as a 17x zoom lens and three independent control rings with end-stop, allow manual control of focus, zoom, and iris.
The second 4K camera, the PXW-Z190, carries newly developed 4K three 1/3-type Exmor R CMOS image sensors that are able to capture RGB light independently and deliver 4K 50p/60p imagery with high resolution and a wide range of gradation. The new model incorporates a 25x optical zoom lens to cover a wide focal range for multiple shooting requirements, with three independent lens rings to support intuitive operation.
Sony has also expanded its Large Format Sensor range with the launch of new XDCAM handheld camcorder FS5 II. It can capture 4K HDR and 120fps and has RAW capabilities. The new Super 35mm camcorder supports S-Log 2/3, as well as Sony’s Instant HDR Workflow.
