I'm looking for a 4K video camera with both HDMI ...

I'm looking for a 4K video camera with both HDMI & SDI video outputs, as well as XLR audio inputs... which led me to this product. My question is how much background blur this aperture/sensor ratio can produce, and whether a different camera, also meeting the above criteria, might produce better background blur? For example, I read the aperture is f2.8 when the zoom is set to all the way wide -- but to what focal length would that equate in full frame mirrorless terms? Thanks in advance!
Asked by: Robert
The amount of depth of field depends on the focal length, aperture, the distance of your subject in focus to the camera's sensor, and the distance of your subject to the background. Decreasing the aperture and distance between the camera and subject in focus will increase your depth of field. Increasing the focal length and distance between the subject in focus to the background will also produce more background blur. B&H lists a 35mm equivalent focal length, on the specifications tab on each camera (any camera that is not full-frame). For the Sony PXW-Z90V, the 35mm equivalent focal length is 29mm and zooms 48 times (29-1392mm).

Hi, I have a microphone that has a diameter of 28mm. Will it be able to fit into the microphone holder?

The internal diameter of the mic holder is 28 mm so it should be a tight fit.

Isn't it a simple firmware update for XVAC to have XVAC S. If it can do L, and being that S is "inferior" and I'm assuming a software thing. Do you think Sony may do that? I want the Z90 for the broadcast quality but I love the versatility of mp4. I know the NX80 has it but I want 10 bit.
Asked by: Fabian
I was actually asking the opposite. But I'm thinking they wouldn't.

question

What are the relevant differences between this camera and the PXW-Z150? Why is the Z150 more expensive?
Asked by: Rafael
Both cameras offer the same Single 1 Exmor RS CMOS Sensor, 12x Optical Zoom, UHD 4K up to 30p and XLR inputs for high quality audio. The Z90V adds new features such as Phase-Detection Autofocus (AF), 4K HDR with Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) and Super Slow Motion at up to 960 fps. While the Z150 still offers a larger form factor, which is something that some shoots desire.
