Does this camera have picture profiles like the FS5?
Asked by: William
They call it saving Configuration Data or Scene files which can be stored to a variety of memory cards that the z190 has for sd card or memory stick. Simply make your settings in paint, gamma knee etc...Then store in a scene file the equivalent of picture profile so you can better match other cameras or just use setups from the many out there available online. Alister Chapman has quite a few... Look at page 44 in the z190 user manual which is available online. For the price it's a great camera! We match it up to our Sony F55.

Does the longer zoom from the 1/3" sensor make up for worse low-light performance? What is your use case?
Asked by: Cale
I bought it for the long zoom but I use it in a church with plenty of theater lighting. It’s set to zero gain at f4 and I get a clean image.
