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 RTM system in 3840 x 2160 resolution at up to 60fps. Even if you're delivering in HD, 4:2:2 10-bit 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 28.8 mm to 720 mm (35 mm 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 in HD mode up to 50x zoom equivalent while maintaining Full HD resolution, thanks to digital 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.
HDR/SDR dual production support
When shooting HDR content, the Z190's EVF is easily switched between HDR and SDR emulation modes. In addition, if you adjust the brightness of the image when in SDR emulation, the SDR gain dB is recorded into metadata so it can be used in post-production for the SDR content. Together these changes make it easier to shoot in HDR while also achieving a quick turnaround for SDR content.
