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 10bit recordings will capture detail and image texture that HD sensors simply cannot see.
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.
Built-In Electronic Variable ND Filters
Sony’s ground-breaking integration of electronic variable ND Filters into the body of a camcorder enables fast, agile shooting. Moving from shadowy interiors to bright sun-lit exteriors is no problem with the PXW-Z190. Unlike conventional optical ND filters, the electronic ND filter on the PXW-Z190 can be controlled from 1/4ND to 1/128ND linearly while ND Filters can be set to fully auto. You can even manually adjust Depth of Field using the iris lens ring, while relying on the PXW-Z190 to maintain constant exposure without changing gain nor shutter speed.

Premium content services are switching to HDR and the PXW-Z190 is ready with Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) recording, 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.
