The PXW-Z90 offers broadcast quality 4K with advanced features such as high-speed auto focus, Instant HDR workflow, up to 960fps super-slow motion and streaming at 2.4GHz or 5GHz with QoS. The PXW-Z90 incorporates an advanced Fast Hybrid AF system, alongside face detection and lock-on auto focus technology, making it easy to focus and track a subject while filming. The PXW-Z90 is the first professional palm-sized camcorder to deliver stunning 4K High Dynamic Range (HDR) content with Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) file-based workflows. S-Log3 is also supported, enabling you to create beautiful imagery with a wide colour gamut and colour range.High Frame Rate shots can turn everyday actions into slow motion ballet and the PXW-Z90 delivers a stunning 120 frames per second (fps) in Full HD XAVC 10bit 4:2:2, giving you continuous five-times slow motion expression. Higher frame rates up to 960fps using S&Q motion cache recording are also possible for even greater creative flexibility.The camcorder features a broadcast standard 3G-SDI output (supporting 1080 60p/50p), a Multi-Interface (MI) Shoe, HDMI and remote interface to connect with and control remotely a wide variety of compatible Sony accessories, including creating a simple live solution when connected to the optional MCX-500 multi camera live producer and RM-30BP Remote Commander. To deliver imaging performance previously impossible for a compact camcorder, a large 14.2-megapixel (effective) 1.0-type stacked CMOS image sensor delivers beautiful background bokeh defocus effects and superior sensitivity for capturing high-quality images with less noise, even under dark or bright conditions. This sensor integrates up to 273 phase-detection AF points that densely cover approx. 84% of the image area, for precise tracking of subjects throughout the shooting frame. The sensor gives you low noise and less blur because more light reaches the sensor, offering clear and steady pictures even in a dark scene with minimum illumination 1.7 lux.

Key Features:

  • Enhanced Fast Hybrid AF
    Enhanced Fast Hybrid auto focus (AF) is comprised of a number of features: Phase-detection AF with up to 273 reference points covering approximately 84% of the image area, face detection and lock-on auto focus technology to estimate subject movement. They all work together seamlessly to capture fast-moving subjects with amazing sharpness.

  • Instant HDR Workflows
    Shoot, edit and view HDR content in HLG without the need for additional colour grading. As the expanding need for HDR content continues, internet video platforms and professionals producing corporate or event content are paying more attention to the added value of HDR. They need to deliver content quickly, without compromising on imaging expression and quality of content. To meet this demand, the PXW-Z90 offers Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) recording, in addition to S-Log3, for easy file-based workflows, whilst achieving the image quality of HDR. This simple workflow enables the shooting, editing and viewing of HDR content in HLG, without devoting a lot of time to post-production work and additional colour grading.

  • Stunning Slow Motion in Full HD
    High Frame Rate shots can turn everyday actions into slow motion ballet and the PXW-Z90 delivers up to 120 frames per second (fps) in Full HD, giving you a maximum of five-times slow motion expression. There’s no sacrifice in bit depth and no windowing of the sensor. So there’s no crop factor, no loss in angle of view. Higher frame rates of 240, 480 and 960 fps are also possible at specific resolutions.
