Sony PXW-Z280

Claimed to be the world's first 4K 3 chip handheld camcorder with a 1/2" type Exmor R CMOS image sensor.

  • Newly developed 4K 3 chip 1/2 type Exmor R CMOS Sensor and the ability to shoot in 4K at up to 60p, all in a 4:2:2 10bit codec
  • This camera can record in XAVC Intra/Long, MPEG HD422/MPEG HD and DVCAM to SxS or SD cards
  • You can do simultaneous recording (4K MPEG HD422)
  • Allows users to easily turn around HD material for a news application for example while still recording a higher quality master
  • The camera also has a 12G-SDI output which is impressive for a camcorder
  • In addition of 4K up to 60p capture in 4:2:2 10-bit is impressive as even Sony's own FS5 only records 4:2:2 10-bit in HD
  • Also includes Sony's electronic variable ND system which can be found in the FS5, FS7 Mark II and a few other camcorders

Full Manual Control

  • The PXW-Z280 doesn't disappoint for those looking for full manual control
  • It has three independent rings for focus, iris and zoom
  • Equipped with a 17x zoom and Sony is claiming an advanced Face Detection AF system


  • Can record 4 channels of audio
  • All with independent volume control
  • Can do this through the use of two XLR inputs as well as a Dual MI Shoe
  • Mount the URX-P03D 2-channel wireless receiver and run two compatible Sony radio mics
