Sony’s new PXW-Z750 is the world’s first 2/3-type shoulder camcorder to support 4K shooting with a 3-chip CMOS sensor system, the company claimed in a press statement.

The latest member of the XDCAM family is optimised for news and live production applications including sports broadcasts, magazine shows, unscripted television, and documentary shooting.

Sony’s 3-chip CMOS image sensor system is mounted on a wide prism band to ensure detailed imagery and vivid colours, along with 4K, High Dynamic Range (HDR) and High Frame Rate (HFR) acquisition with high sensitivity with low noise.

Its 2/3-type sensor delivers imagery with deep depth of field and enables quick focus operation. B4 mount lens can be attached directly to maintain high sensitivity and resolution.

The PXW-Z750 is also the first 2/3-type 3-chip camcorder equipped with global shutter technology for capturing clear and crisp images while negating artefacts such as flashband and rolling shutter distortion.

Another powerful feature is 12G-SDI support, which enables the transfer of 4K images (50p or 60p) over a single BNC cable, enhancing the flexibility of the camera.

The PXW-Z750 is planned to be available in February 2020.
