Sony has recently released their newest XDCAM camcorder, which they’ve called the PXW-Z150.
The new camcorder, which can shoot 120 frames per second in full HD quality, targets those who are in the corporate events industry. However, it’s packed with lots of features that will excite both amateurs and professionals and attract videographers and filmmakers from all kinds of niches. According to James Leach, product marketing manager of Sony Professional Solutions Europe, the PXW-Z150 is specially designed to keep up with demanding situations and can be easily set up — without compromising on creative solutions.
Design and Features
In the PXW-Z150, Sony has combined its Clear Image Zoom technology with the camcorder’s built-in 29-348mm lens. This means that the lens’s 12x optical zoom capacity (which is specifically designed for 4K imaging) is doubly magnified to 24x when shooting in HD and 18x in 4K ultra HD.
The PXW-Z150 comes with the Exmor RS CMOS sensor, which is a large, 1-inch stacked CMOS that supports 5x slow motion in HD and provides users with an excellent 4K recording experience. It also has a higher resolution and has the ability to create more bokeh, which means users can come up with dramatic, professional-looking images that can stir the audience’s emotions.
Professional videographers and filmmakers will love the PXW-Z150’s Multi-Interface Shoe, which lets them easily attach compatible accessories such as lights and wireless microphones. They’ll also like the range of built-in adapters, including terminals for 3G-SDI, HDMI, and Multi/Micro USB connections.
