PXW-Z450 - seems a very good traditional 4K camera

PXW-Z cameras such as Z150, Z90. May be some crossover with some NXCAM models.

PXW-Z450 - seems a very good traditional 4K camera

Post by advisiontv » August 1st, 2018, 1:52 pm

Loving all the hints tips and advice with everything XDCAM! Keep it up!
However - I'm very surprised that there isn't much on the internet regarding the new PXW-Z450, especially since their recent Version 3 has enabled S-Log and HDR capabilities and it seems the most common sense upgrade from any HD broadacst camcorder.
I know you cannot feature every camera that comes out, but I think that this looks quite an astonishing camera, and I don't know why there isn't much online about it! I'd rather be reading about it on these forums and blogs so am keen to hear if anyone has used them - and would love to hear Alister's views on them.

The Z450 is an OK camera, but squeezing 4K on to such a small sensor means that it isn't very sensitive and it doesn't have the greatest dynamic range. As an early camera for 4K news it's OK, but if you really want to do a lot of log or HDR you are going to want a camera with more dynamic range.
