I own a PXW-150. I like the camera a lot but ...

I own a PXW-150. I like the camera a lot but would like a second camera and this Z-280 at 60FPS is very appealing. The only thing I don't like about the 150 is that there isn't an independent button or even one you can program, to mark a shot on the fly—that tells the user to save the shot and delete the rest later. Yes, you can go into the thumbnail menu and mark shots after the fact and delete shots you don't want, but that doesn't do the user any good when they are in a fast-paced sporting or news environment. It's not easy to remember what shots you want to save, so I want to mark a shot as I am taking it and seeing it in the viewfinder. As it is, I have to flip one the LED screen go into the thumbnails and watch all the shots over and select the clips I want to save or delete—that is a lot of time wasted. I was able to mark shots on the fly with the Panasonic HPX-370 shoulder mount camera and it was one of the best features of the camera. Does anyone know if this is an option with the new Sony Z280?If this is not an option, SONY NEEDS to make it happen with an update.
Asked by: Tom
Hi Tom, Yes, the PXW-Z280 can record 2 kinds of Shot Marks. These marks can be programed to an assignable button on the camera body. The description and instructions are on page 39 of the user manual: https://static.bhphotovideo.com/lit_files/402668.pdf Regards, Erin Sony Social Support

Can it output 4K at 24fps via SGI?
Asked by: Patrick
This camera has many settings to choose from. The only problem is the end result. I found the quality of video to be very poor. I sent this camera back. There are cameras out there that do a better job. Do not buy this camera.
