Sony PXW-Z190 overview

  • 1Description

Sony's PXW-Z190 4K 3-CMOS 1/3" Sensor XDCAM Camcorder continues the fine tradition of the XDCAM series of cameras. It captures 4K at up to 60p, relying on three 1/3" Exmor R sensors that provide improved low-light capability when compared to standard sensors. The camera integrates a 25x optical Sony G zoom lens and an electronic variable ND filter. The camera supports a variety of codecs out of the box, with an optional MPEG HD license enabling you to shoot HD video.

The camera supports HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma), allowing you to shoot and deliver footage compatible with both HDR (high dynamic range) and SDR (standard dynamic range) without needing laborious post-production work. Dual SD card slots permit a variety of recording options including simultaneous HD and 4K recoding. The camera features built-in 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi.

    Sony PXW-Z190 reviews

    PXW-Z190 4K 3-CMOS 1/3" Sensor XDCAM Camcorder is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! I do Breaking News Video for Local and National Media outlets. I have been using Canon Gear for the last 5 years. I gave a glowing review for the Canon XF-405, but......................This Sony PXW-Z190 is Soooo Much Better. Heavier, but better. The crystal clear viewfinder, the high quality of video. The ability to record 4K and HD at the same time. It's just a great professional camera. I shoot mostly during the daytime but shot my first night video and the low light is very good. I have completely switched over to Sony after 30 years of Pro Nikon Gear and 5 years with Canon Video Gear. Thank you Sony!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A step in the right direction Coming up from a Z150, the Z190's low light performance is excellent and the face detection auto focus really helps in challenging focus situations where I'd have used manual focus in the past. The variable NS filter is also a huge asset. On the down side simul-record is not supported in 4K at this time, this is a big step backwards from the Z150 or even Sony's less expensive handheld line and hopefully it is corrected in a later version. Sony still doesn't offer a "trap to focus" option. HLG performance is good but it does require a hair more grading in post than some of Sony's less expensive cameras. Battery life with the standard battery is mediocre but BP-U90 lasts an eternity.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Camera - If It Likes Your SD Card I really like the nomenclature of this camera, a nice size for our multi-camera theater and concert shoots.  However, the SanDisc 128gig SD cards that are offered as accessories did not work in this camera.  The PXW-Z190 did not recognize the SanDisk 128GB Extreme PRO UHS-I SDXC Memory Card (V30).  So I ordered the more expensive Sony brand and they work just fine.  Great camera - picky appetite for cards.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vastly superior to my NX5U What a difference eight years makes in camcorder technology! I bought the Z190 as a replacement for my trusty NX5U and I'm loving it. Even though this camera is UHD with 3 densely packed 1/3" sensors, the low light capability is much better than my old camera. I can boost the gain to 18db and the image still looks great, on the NX5U, 18db was unusable. The 25x zoom is really nice, I shot an event from the back of a large room (about 100 ft at least) and got some tight close up shots from that distance that I wouldn't have been able to do before. I like the MI shoe connection for the Sony wireless receiver I use with it, no need for an audio cable or batteries in the receiver. The advanced face detection focus feature works really well and will definitely save time for run-and-gun interviews.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from This camcorder has great specs, but it I had to return it... I think I will be very happy with this camcorder, but the one I received was very erratic.  Some videos were great, others were horrible, in the same recording session.  My conclusion is that I received a defective camcorder.  I have returned the camcorder for a replacement, and Im waiting for the new camcorder.  Since I bought several hundred dollars of accessories, Im very hopeful that the replacement will be good.  I really like the cameras menu structure, the location of buttons and switches, and the potential.  If I can consistently get the good videos that I received, then I can give it 5 stars and my full recommendation.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from New and Better Replacement I bought this to replace the Sony PXW-Z150 that I had just purchased in February this year...What a difference this Z190 is...the 25 times zoom, the low-light capability, the advance face-detection are all welcomed improvements. Battery life with the included U30 is limited, I recommend buying the U60...I did and can't wait to put it to the test. The one thing I miss is the 120 slo-mo frames per second...but I'm hoping SONY will put it in an upcoming firmware.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing 4K Camera for event coverage, news, & run and gun! The Sony PXW-Z190 is an excellent camera for event coverage, news gathering, nature footage, interviews, and professional video work. I use the camera for interviews, convention, stage, event coverage, YouTube content creation, and trade show coverage. Sony's new 3CMOS 1/3-inch chips are VERY good in lower light conditions than any other 1/3-inch sensor camera I've seen in the past. The 25x optical zoom Sony Lens G on this camera is spectacular. It takes two SDXC memory cards (have used up to 512GB in size with no issues) and records up to 4K UHD (3840x2160p) 60fps in the XAVC-L format as well as DVCAM. In December 2018, the optional MPEG-2 (4:2:2) license will be available for purchase along with a more advanced networking package, It also records 1080p 4:2:2 out of the box in the XAVC-L format. Includes 4-channel audio. 2 phantom powered XLR audio jacks, 3G-SDI, WiFi, ethernet LAN cable connectivity, two MI hot-shoe connectors and a host of other options. This camera has improved my workflow and quality and gives me the professional look, feel, and workflow I've always wanted. My convention and event coverage as well as YouTube content creation has improved dramatically ever since I've started using this camcorder. My interview sessions have also greatly improved. Highly recommended!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good Looks like Sony finally got it right. I used this camera to shoot handheld at a concert and it was extremely easy to use. The quality is excellent. Stabilization, auto focus and zoom are def it's strong points. Keep in mind you will only shoot max 50mbps in HD and 150mpbs in UHD. Overall, I'm very happy with this camera. Perfect for run and gun.
