It’s the ideal choice for a wide range of 4K and HD single camera shoots, making it the perfect companion for professionals on the go.
At the heart of the PXW-Z190 lies a powerful 4K 1/3-type 3CMOS sensor, a world first in a professional camcorder of this size. This impressive sensor captures red, blue, and green light independently, resulting in stunning 4K (QFHD) imagery at up to 60fps. Even if you’re shooting in HD, the 4:2:2 10-bit recording captures detail and texture far beyond the capabilities of traditional HD sensors.
The PXW-Z190 comes equipped with a powerful 25x professional zoom lens that offers a wide focal length from 28.8mm to 720mm (35mm equivalent). The lens features three independent control rings for and faster, more accurate adjustment of focus, zoom, and iris, ensuring you never miss a shot. An integrated extender allows for image enlargement without any degradation in HD mode, effectively capturing a 50x zoom equivalent image (with sensor cropping).
Ease of use is a hallmark of the PXW-Z190, with advanced features such as Face Detection AF and the unique electronic variable ND filters, that take the stress out of shooting great content. The advanced Face Detection AF ensures that your subject remains in pin-sharp focus, allowing you to focus more on your composition, rather than technical details, and the electronic Variable ND Filters enable quick and smooth exposure adjustment as you transition from dark to bright environments without the need for changing gain or shutter speed.
Another standout feature is the Instant HDR workflow. The PXW-Z190 is ready for the shift towards HDR content with Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) recording. This allows you to shoot, edit, and view HDR content without the need for time-consuming post-production work or additional colour grading.
Simultaneous use of wireless audio and video lighting is made possible with the dual Multi-Interface (MI) Shoe, ensuring optimal flexibility during your shoots. The camera also provides dual XLR for four-channel audio recording and two independent volume dials for precise audio control. An MI-shoe attached microphone and two SD memory card slots for Simul, relay, or backup mode add to the camera's functionality.
As for recording formats, the PXW-Z190 offers robust and efficient compression with XAVC Long GOP recording at QFHD and Full-HD.
