The Sony 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 Z150 is switchable between PAL and NTSC operation.

The Z150 is perfect for event shooters, or wedding videographers as the choice of resolutions and codecs combined with the familiar and ergonomic handheld design allows them to capture every single moment with breath-taking detail. The PXW-Z150 is capable of high frame rate recording up to 120 frames per second (fps) in Full HD for stunning slow-motion effect, giving you a maximum of 5 times slow motion on a 24p timeline. There is no crop of the sensor or additional detrimental factors - you just get amazing 120fps slow motion using the full size of the sensor.

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 – maximising the performance of the Z150’s large 1.0 type sensor and providing high resolution and contrast from the centre to the edge of your image.

Sony’s advanced Clear Image Zoom feature makes the 12x turn into a 24x without loss of quality allowing you to capture images beyond the lens' maximum 12x optical magnification.

Sony PXW-Z150 Features
  • 1-inch 4K EXMOR RS Sensor
  • 4K/UHD recording in XAVC-L 100Mb/s codec
  • Sony "G" 24x Zoom Lens (12x optical, 24x Clear Image Zoom)
  • Super-Slow motion at 120fps in Full-HD
  • Built-in advanced networking for live streaming and wireless workflow
  • Records onto affordable SDXC media cards
  • Dual XLR inputs for pro audio
The Z150 has advanced networking capabilities that give 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’s 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, REC START/STOP and more using Sony’s Content Browser Mobile software.
