The Sony PXW- Z150 has a 1-inch sensor that is rated for minimum illumination of 1.7 lux. That is among the best for lowlight performance hen compared to other pro video camcorders.

Which flavor of SDI does this camera have, 424M ...

Which flavor of SDI does this camera have, 424M Level A or Level B?
Asked by: Todd
Not sure why it matters, what does matter is that the SDI output is capable of outputting 1080p at 60fps if you recorded in that format. It does not seem to output the 2160p (even if the camera is capable of shooting in this format). The user manual, pages 70-77 expand on this and indicate the SDI output peaks at 1080p. I'm guessing then, that the flavor of the SDI is 424M A - a one stream, 3Gb signal.

Would it be possible to use this Camcorder with Tricaster Mini?
Asked by: Haukur H.
We've used two of them with our Tricaster Mini for 4 years now. Great combo, just make sure your HDMI cabling runs (HDMI over ethernet, or SDI via converter) are solid.
