Sony launches professional PXW-Z100 4K handheld XDCAM camcorder

Sony today announced the PXW-Z100, a professional 4K handheld XDCAM camcorder featuring a 1/2.3″ Exmor R CMOS sensor. The camcorder is ideal for creating stunning 4K content (4096×2160) at 50fps or 60fps. The camcorder marks Sony’s latest step in expanding the 4K world to everyone, from high-end cinema to entry level productions.

The PXW-Z100, together with the fixed 4K-compatible high-performance G Lens, weighs less than 3kg. It uses the XAVC recording format first used in the PMW-F55 CineAlta camera. As with the F55, 4K (4096 × 2160, 50fps or 60fps, 4:2:2, Intra-frame, 10-bit recording in MXF file format) is possible at a high-bit rate of 500Mbps or 600Mbps. QFHD (3840×2160) and HD (1920×1080) resolutions can also be selected, both of which are compatible with most 4K TV’s.

Since the PXW-Z100 is based on the same shooting principles as a conventional handheld professional camcorder, it is possible to record 4K content with minimal crew. In addition, during editing, downscaling from 4K to HD provides new possibilities for HD content production. “This incredible new camcorder is capable of capturing stunning 4K content, making 4K acquisition accessible to a wider range of professional users than ever before” said Francois Gauthier, Marketing Manager, Acquisition Products, Professional Solutions Group, Sony of Canada “Corporate and Event camera operators can deliver 4K today for distribution via a growing number of platforms including video wall and large projection applications, and will be able to take advantage of the greater flexibility in post production
that 4K acquisition offers when delivering in HD”.

The PXW-Z100 will be available from November.
