Features

4K 50p/60p with a stunning 25x zoom lens

This superb all-rounder is the de facto choice for a wide range of 4K and HD single camera shoots with an all-new 1/3-type 3CMOS sensor. A powerful 25x zoom lens with three independent lens rings delivers pin-sharp 4K imaging for almost any professional shooting scenario. Advanced Face Detection AF and Sony’s unique Electronic Variable ND filter make shooting great content stress-free.

Advanced workflow features

Instant HDR means you can deliver stunning imagery quickly without need for additional colour grading. Dual MI Shoe allows simultaneous use of wireless audio and video lighting, while advanced network performance support is easily enabled when required.

4K 1/3-type 3CMOS Sensor

The PXW-Z190 is the world’s first professional camcorder with a 4K (QFHD) 1/3-inch type sensor. Red, blue, and green light are independently captured by separate image sensors within the Exmor R system in 3840 x 2160 resolution at up to 60fps. Even if you’re delivering in HD, 4:2:2 10bit recordings will capture detail and image texture that HD sensors simply cannot see.

25x professional zoom lens with three independent rings and large focal length

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.

Advanced Face Detection AF

The PXW-Z190 features newly developed Face detection AF. You can choose between Face Priority AF and 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.

Built-in electronic Variable ND Filters

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.

Instant HDR workflow

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 Multi-Interface (MI) Shoe

MI Shoe provides signal connections and coordinated on/off switching to compatible accessories. Connectors at front and back of camcorder maximise operational flexibility. For example, you can connect and control Sony Wireless Microphone systems such as the UWP-D11 or UWP-D12 and the HVL-LBPC light at the same time, (accessories available separately). Cable-less connection eliminates the risk of accidental disconnection.

Dual XLR and 4 Channel Audio

The PXW-Z190 offers four channel audio recording with two independent volume dials enabling precise control of external audio inputs, including an MI-shoe attached microphone.

Dual SD media slots

The camcorder is equipped with two SD memory card slots, which can record in either Simul or Relay or Back up mode. Simul mode permits simultaneous recording to two memory cards, ideal for archival purposes. Relay mode automatically switches recording from the first to the second memory card when the first is full to extend recording times. In Back Up mode, users can set up the two Start/Stop buttons on the PXW-Z190, one on the grip and one on the camcorder body, to independently start and stop recording on different memory cards while recording in Simul mode.

XAVC Long GOP recording at QFHD and Full-HD

XAVC technology is based on the H.264 standard, which provides an exceptionally robust and efficient compression technology. XAVC Long GOP applies compression across multiple frames – reducing file sizes, which can make for fast ingest and editing as well as providing budget savings on recording media. In HD shooting, the XAVC codec adopts 10-bit sampling for high definition recording with rich tonal expression.

Broadcast-standard MPEG HD422 and MPEG HD

High-quality MPEG HD422 50 Mbps is fully compliant with EBU recommendations for long-form broadcast production and is widely accepted in broadcasting stations and production houses. This recording capability makes PXW-Z190 ideal for a wide range of different applications, including newsgathering and documentary production.

DVCAM at 25 Mbps in MXF file format

Many broadcasters and production houses still utilise the proven DVCAM format and PXW-Z190 provides support at the flick of a switch.
