The Sony PXW-Z280 4K XDCAM

The Sony PXW-Z280 4K XDCAM is a professional-grade UHD 4K video camera with features tuned for fast-paced electronic-news gathering and direct-to-air broadcasting. Key features include:

4K 3CMOS 1/2-Type Sensor and Exmor R Imager. The professional-grade Sony PXW-Z280 4K XDCAM gets an updated 4K 3CMOS 1/2-type sensor, which pairs with the Exmor R imager to give you high-resolution broadcast-quality images with serious depth of field.

Fast Hybrid Autofocus System. The new hybrid-autofocus system offers fast, accurate, and nearly silent performance, making it great for shooting UHD 4K. You can use the camera’s touchscreen to quickly change between autofocus subjects, and you can use phase-detection AF frames to monitor focus in movie-recording mode.

HLG & S-Log3. This camera’s Hybrid-Log Gamma feature means that your footage will look remarkable on HDR and standard televisions without requiring additional color correction. S-Log3 is also available for those wanting more latitude in post processing.

12G-SDI Output, 2.4/5 GHz Streaming. The PXW-Z280’s accelerated 12G-SDI output means you can easily integrate it into a professional studio setting, while its built-in 2.4/5 GHz Wi-Fi gives you the option of live streaming or direct FTP file transfer.

Integrated 17x Professional Zoom Lens. The integrated Zeiss 17x zoom lens provides a 30.3mm to 515mm (35mm equivalent) zoom range, making it excellent for a broad array of applications. Manual iris, ISO/gain, and shutter-speed controls enable quick and easy adjustment.

Recording Range. The PXW-Z280 features a menagerie of resolutions, frame rates, and codecs. It records 4K QFHD and HD in XAVC Intra and XAVC Long in a choice of 100 Mbps or 60 Mbps at 29.97, 25, and 23.98 FPS. At HD resolutions, the camera records at standard frame rates up to 59.94p and uses Sony’s Slow & Quick Motion for overcrank/undercrank recording at 1, 2, 4, 8, 15, 30, and 60 FPS.

Additional Features. This camera boasts a large 3.5" 1.56m-dot LCD touchscreen that lets you control a range of functions, while the high-resolution, 2.36m-dot OLED viewfinder makes shot composition simple. The electronic ND filter system offers Clear, 1/4ND, 1/16ND, and 1/64ND presets as well as the option to manually adjust to anywhere in between. It has dual SxS card slots capable of simultaneous, relay, and back-up recording. The camera uses Sony BP series batteries.

If you don't see exactly what you're looking for and that makes you sad, please give us a shout. We might have good news for you. Here's a link to our contact form.

We offer a 3-day inspection period on all sales, during which time you may return the item for a refund of the purchase price, not including shipping.

On this item, we include a LensAuthority 90-day limited warranty. This warranty covers damage that arises from normal use of the item. It does NOT cover accidental or intentional damage. More details are available in our FAQ section.

In addition to the standard 90-day warranty, you may have the option to purchase an extended warranty. If we're able to offer an extended warranty on this item, you'll see a checkbox to add that warranty - see the area just above the "Add to Cart" button.

If you select the extended warranty, you'll get additional protection from Consumer Priority Service ("CPS"). The CPS warranty will take effect after our 90-day warranty ends. However, the CPS warranty term would begin on the date of purchase. For example, if you buy an item with a 2-year extended warranty today, your coverage would end two years from today.
