Sony PXW-Z280 & PXW-Z190 Camcorders Officially Announced

In addition to the new Sony FS5 Mark II, Sony also announced the new PXW-Z280 and PXW-Z190 camcorders for NAB show 2018.

Sony PXW-Z280

The new flagship handheld Sony PXW-Z280 camcorder boasts three 1/2-type Exmor R CMOS sensors, ideal for high sensitivity of F12 (59.94p), long zoom ratio and deep depth of field, ideal for news gathering. Its 3-chip sensors and 4K 4:2:2 10-bit adds vivid imagery and delicate color gradation. Enhanced network features, versatile formats and interfaces enable direct-to-air workflows, making this model ideal for broadcasters, production companies and documentary creation.

The PXW-Z280 is designed for easy use, with features such as advanced Face Detection Autofocus (AF) function. Users can select “Face Priority AF,” convenient for automatic face detection and optimization, or the newly introduced “Face Only AF” for more demanding 4K shooting applications. The camera detects a specific person automatically, keeping them in pin-sharp focus. A 17x zoom lens and three independent control rings with end-stop allow manual control of focus, zoom, and iris for quick and precise adjustment.

The PXW-Z280 camcorder is planned to be available in July 2018 for $6,950 in the U.S. and $8,695 in Canada. You can read more detailed info at Sony Pro.

Sony PXW-Z190

Sony’s PXW-Z190 is a 4K compact camcorder with enhanced usability for independent shooters in corporate, event production and education applications. The camcorder’s newly developed three 1/3-type Exmor R CMOS image sensors capture RGB light independently and delivers 4K 50p/60p imagery with high resolution and a wide range of gradation. 4:2:2 10-bit ensures vivid and rich color content in HD.

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. Using optical zoom lens with Digital Extender in an HD mode, a 50x zoom equivalent image without any picture degradation can be captured thanks to its 4K resolution sensor. Advanced Face Detection Auto Focus (AF) features include the “Face Priority AF” and newly added “Face Only AF,” which help to ensure a specific person within a group automatically stays in pin-sharp focus, ideal for shooting interviews or lectures.

The new PXW-Z190 camcorder is planned to be available in September 2018 with pricing below $4,000 in the US and $5,200 in Canada. You can read more detailed info at Sony Pro.
