  • High quality recordings in 4K QFHD and HD

    The PXW-Z450 supports a variety of 4K and HD formats, including 4K QFHD (3840x2160) at 50p/59.94p, using the XVAC Intra and XAVC Long GOP, MPEG HD 422 and MPEG HD 420 workflow standards.

  • High sensitivity image making

    The camcorder’s specially-developed 4K 2/3-type Exmor R CMOS sensor provides superb image quality and high sensitivity. The sensor matches B4 mount lens systems, allowing you to use commercially-available B4 4K/HD lens systems without the need to use an adapter.

  • 4K/HD Simultaneous Recording

    Both QFHD 4K and HD can be recorded at the same time - no need to waste time down converting 4K to HD after recording. [V2.0 firmware required. Available from July 2017]

  • Quad Link 3G-SDI option for 4K 50p/59.94p output

    Use the PXW-Z450's four 3G-SDI connectors to support 4K 50p/59.94p output as a Quad Link 3G-SDI signal. Connect any 4K Quad Link product you want to the PXW-Z450. [V2.0 firmware required. Available from July 2017. Requires CBKZ-Z450QL upgrade license.]

  • High Dynamic Range (HDR) support

    Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG)/S-Log3 recording with BT.2020 color space. [Availability expected in 2017.]

  • Discover Optimized Weight Balance

    PXW-Z450 is the world-first* 4K shoulder-mount camcorder and it inherits design concept of the PXW-X400 XDCAM camcorder with a favorable reception. Thanks to its ergonomic design, the PXW-Z450 camcorder achieves optimized weight balance to lessen the weight on the lens grip and stable image shooting.

    *As of April, 2016, based on Sony’s research.

  • Supports Full HD OLED viewfinders

    The camcorder supports a variety of Sony’s viewfinders, including the Full HD OLED HDVF-EL30 and HDVF-EL20. The OLED viewfinders take an advantage of focusing the 4K shooting.

  • Embedded RJ-45 connector

    An embedded RJ-45 Ethernet 100B-T connector on the right side of the camcorder provides a robust and fast network connection that can be used for file transfer, live streaming and camera control from a web browser.

  • One-touch wireless LAN connection

    A Near Field Communication (NFC) function allows easy, one-touch wireless LAN connection to a smartphone or tablet device without manual setting of the network parameters.

  • Built-in wireless module with Content Browser Mobile™

    The camcorder’s built-in wireless module gives you more mobility with no cable needed, enabling proxy recording and file transfer or live streaming. In file transfer mode, high-resolution files and XAVC Proxy files can be transferred over wireless connection to cloud or FTP server thanks to Content Browser Mobile* (CBM) application. In Push mode, the CBM application enables users to monitor the currently shot video and to wirelessly control camcorder settings such as focus, zoom, iris, white balance, REC START/STOP, and more. With Content Browser Mobile V2.0 proxy trim, proxy partial clip upload, and logging are available. High quality live streaming is provided by the advanced Sony QoS technology embedded in the camcorder and in the PWS-100RX1 network RX station. Non QoS live streaming is also possible with a third-party receiver or VLC player.

    *The CBM application can be downloaded from the Google Play Store or App Store.

  • Easy network connection

    A dedicated button gives simple on-off control of Network Client Mode, Auto Upload (Proxy) and Live Streaming.

  • Records a second camera’s feed via SDI

    An SD or HD-SDI (up to 1.5G) signal can be recorded by the camcorder, a useful function to record an external feed from another camera.

  • Lower power consumption

    By optimising the design of the hardware, the lightweight camcorder has a low power consumption. This enables continuous recording operation for long hours of filming.
