World-leading handheld 4K HDR performance
An all-new 4K 3CMOS 1/2-type sensor with a deep depth of field and class-leading performance provides the
pinnacle of 4K HDR performance in your hand.
Face Detection AF keeps your subject in focus, while HLG and S-Log3 provide stunning HDR to suit any workflow.
World's first 1/2-type 3CMOS Sensor for broadcast 4K
The Z280’s all-new Exmor R imager is custom-designed for broadcast 4K acquisition. Its three 1/2-type Exmor R
CMOS deliver a deep depth of field with superb image quality.
Red, blue, and green light are independently captured by separate image sensors, contributing to high resolution,
high sensitivity of F12 (59.94p) and wide dynamic range.
Accurate OLED viewfinder
An expansive 0.5-inch high quality OLED viewfinder is perfectly offset for right-eye or left-eye viewing.
OLED’s superb accuracy, high contrast and high resolution (2.36M dot) enables precise manual focus and
eliminates any colour-breaking phenomenon.
Revolutionary networking capabilities
Deliver your content faster wherever you are. PXW-Z280 is the world’s first camcorder with Dual Link Cellular
capability for double the uplink performance and reliability.
17x professional HD zoom lens with three independent rings with end-stop and large focal length
The PXW-Z280 is equipped with a 17x professional zoom lens able to zoom from 30.3mm to 515mm (35mm equivalent).
The 1/2-inch type lens has three independent control rings with end-stop, which allows manual control of focus,
zoom and iris, making for better and faster adjustment.
The image can be enlarged without any picture degradation in HD mode and 34x times zoom equivalent image is
captured with sensor cropping extender.
The complete package for professionals
Unpack and shoot from day one. Advanced XAVC-Intra and XAVC-Long for 4K QFHD and HD, plus MPEG HD422,
MPEG HD and DVCAM to support any workflow.
Familiar Sony control layout and operation minimise training requirements.
Spectacular HDR performance
Demand for HDR content is increasing and Z280 offers you a choice of two powerful workflows.
- S-Log3 is the proven choice for premium applications where you wish to capture as much data as possible for
the ultimate flexibility in grading
- Instant HDR Workflow is all about speed. Shoot, edit and view content in Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) to deliver
content quickly without compromising on imaging expression and quality of content
12G-SDI accelerated workflow
Revolutionise your workflow with 12Gbps content transfer – four times the bandwidth of 3G-SDI over a single
cable and ideal for working with highest quality 4K content or speeding through HD content.
Sony is the first broadcast manufacturer to build 12G-SDI into a compact handheld camcorder. Once you’ve tried
it, you won’t want to use anything else.
