In time for BVE 2016 Sony announce a 1″ sensor camcorder capable of 4K 120pfs.
Yes you did read right this is a global camera with PAL and NTSC switching, doing away with the naff thing Sony tend to do and geo-cripple the settings on you.
After the Sony blurb, check out the PXW-Z150 camera in pictures.
The 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.
he Z150 offers a step-change in image capture in its class with 4K QFHD (3840×2160) using the advanced XAVC Long GOP 100Mbps codec for truly broadcast quality 4K performance.
To maximise the quality of your images, the Z150 has a stunning optical 12x zoom lens that offers high resolution and contrast across the entirety of the image. Sony’s advanced Clear Image Zoom feature doubles magnification to 18x when shooting in 4K QFHD and 24x in HD, to fully exploit the imaging capabilities of the Z150’s large 1.0 type stacked sensor.
