Revolutionary imaging performance with Exmor® RS sensor
To deliver imaging performance previously impossible for a compact camcorder, Sony has developed the world's first 1.0-inch type stacked CMOS image sensor for professional video applications. A 2x increase in read-out speed, compared to a conventional 1.0-inch type sensor, enables beautiful 5x slow motion image capture up to 120fps in Full HD and high resolution 4K recording with full pixel readout without binning.
The PXW-Z150s single 20 megapixel* 1.0-inch type large size sensor helps to provide 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**. The large sensor size also enables beautiful background defocusing (bokeh) to enable you to focus on what you want to show and defocus the rest of the image.
* 14.2 million effective pixels.
** LOW LUX mode
Flexible 4K and Full HD recordings
The PXW-Z150 is designed to provide true broadcast quality performance for both 4K and Full HD productions, recording with the advanced XAVC™ Long GOP 100Mbps codec for brilliant 4K QFHD imagery and flexible workflows. XAVC Long's higher bit rate produces outstanding images with more details and less noise to create the number one 4K picture quality in its class. For even more flexibility in workflows, the PXW-Z150 is switchable between NTSC and PAL operation.
120fps continuous slow motion
High Frame Rate shots can turn everyday actions into slow motion ballet and the PXW-Z150 delivers up to 120 frames per second (fps) in Full HD, giving you a maximum of 5 times slow motion expression. There's no sacrifice in bit depth and no "windowing" of the sensor. So there's virtually no crop factor or loss in angle of view.
Sony's "G" lens with maximum 24x zoom
A high quality 29-348mm wide-angle lens with 12x optical zoom makes it easy to capture even the most expansive landscape scenes while also offering superb clarity and sharpness – maximizing the performance of the PXW-Z150's large 1.0-inch type sensor and providing high resolution and contrast from the center to the edge of your image.
Getting close into even the most distant scenes is further enhanced by Sony’s advanced Clear Image Zoom feature. Once you've zoomed in at maximum 12x optical magnification, By Pixel Super Resolution Technology can enlarge the image to 18x in 4K QFHD or 24x in HD, while still preserving image.
Networked for high mobility
With advanced networking capabilities, the PXW-Z150 gives you more mobility in your work - FTP files directly from the camcorder or live stream from any event using built-in Wi-Fi features with no accessories required. Sony's unique QoS technology* dramatically improves the clarity that is possible on a wireless connection, giving you better pictures even with the limitations of today's real-world networks. You can also remotely control the PXW-Z150 with a smartphone or tablet, including the ability to adjust settings such as focus, zoom, iris, white balance, REC START/STOP and more using Sony's Content Browser Mobile** software.
* QoS will be supported with a firmware update.
** The Content Browser Mobile application can be downloaded from the Google Play Store or App Store.
High resolution monitoring
Precise monitoring and low latency, however you choose to shoot, is possible with the PXW-Z150's advanced, wide viewing-angle and high contrast 0.39 type 1440K dots OLED electronic viewfinder (EVF) with large eye-cap, and an easily adjustable, flip-out 3.5 inch* 1550K dots LCD panel.
* Viewable area measured diagonally.
Compact and lightweight body
This camcorder is ergonomically designed to provide a lightweight and easy-to-use shooting experience. Three manual, independent lens rings enable smooth, natural adjustment of focusing, zooming and iris control. The camcorder can also be used in full-auto mode or completely manual for maximum creative control.
Dual media slots for recording flexibility
To extend recording times and workflow flexibility, the PXW-Z150 is equipped with two memory card slots and is compatible with SDXC and SDHC cards. “RELAY” mode automatically switches recording from the first to the second memory card when the first is full, while "SIMUL" mode permits simultaneous recording to two memory cards (for example to create an immediate back-up version).
Multi-Interface (MI) Shoe
The PXW-Z150 takes advantage of Sony's flexible Multi-Interface (MI) Shoe, which provides power, signal connections and coordinated on/off switching to compatible Sony accessories. For example, you can connect and control Sony wireless microphone systems such as the UWP-D11 or UWP-D12 or attach the HVL-LBPC light*.
* All sold separately. HVL-LBPC is controlled but not powered by the PXW-Z150.
Wide choice of connections including 3G-SDI
There’s no need to worry about adapters as the PXW-Z150 provides a wide variety of built-in connectivity options including 3G-SDI, HDMI®, Multi/Micro USB, professional audio XLR terminals, REMOTE and Composite (RCA). A supplied cold shoe adaptor kit from Sony, provides you with more flexibility for mounting accessories.
