    4K (4096 x 2160) 50fps or 60fps shooting

    The camcorder provides good sensitivity due to the back-illuminated Exmor™ R CMOS sensor. With 8 million effective pixels, the 1/2.33" sensor captures 4K images at 50fps or 60fps. The inbuilt high-performance G Lens offers maximum shooting flexibility, including a wide angle of 29.5mm (equivalent to 35mm) and 20x powerful optical zoom.

    XAVC recording format at 4K 50fps/60fps, 4:22 10-bit at 500/600Mbps, HD at up to 223Mbps

    The PXW-Z100 uses Sony’s XAVC recording format first employed in the PMW-F55 CineAlta 4K camera. MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 compression is used for HD (1920 x 1080), QFHD (3840 x 2016) and 4K (4096 x 2160) content. Image sampling is 4:2:2 10-bit, with an intra-frame system that compresses each frame individually at a maximum bit rate of 500Mbps or 600Mbps during 4K 50fps or 60fps recording respectively and 223Mbps during HD 50fps or 60fps recording. The XAVC format is ideal for those looking to implement a high-quality, secure and worry-free workflow.

    A free firmware update is planned for the middle of 2014 to support the LongGOP mode for extended 4K recording time and to add support for AVCHD recording, a format that until now has been compatible with the playback environment of Blu-ray Discs.      

    XQD Memory Card recording

    The XQD Memory Card* is a new standard of solid state memory, which was recently defined by several industry leading companies. XQD uses the ultra-fast PCI Express interface and Sony’s unique camera processor to enable stable video recording at 500Mbps or 600Mbps. The PXW-Z100 features two XQD Memory Card slots. Multiple cards can be used in various ways, such as for relay recording. When the first card becomes full, recording continues on the second card without a break.

    * XQD cards have a write speed of up to 800Mbps. The use of S Series cards with 180MB/s writing speed is recommended.    

    HDMI interface for 4K output and 3G HD-SDI interface for HD output

    The HDMI interface on the PXW-Z100 can output 4K as a 50fps/60fps signal. When the PXW-Z100 is connected to a Sony 4K-compatible BRAVIA TV, the recorded 4K image can be displayed in 4K 50fps/60fps quality. A future firmware upgrade is planned to provide compatibility with the new HDMI 2.0 standard and enable 4K 50fps/60fps output to a wider range of devices. Other features include a 3G HD-SDI interface that supports output to an SDI of up to HD 60fps. It also supports HD output during 4K recording.    

    Paint function for more creative freedom

    The PXW-Z100’s paint function enables multiple image parameters to be adjusted including gamma curve, black level, skin detail and colour. The range of settings is similar to those in the PMW-F55. Together with other setting options, parameter settings can be recorded as a camera profile onto a memory card. The recorded camera profile can then be used to set the same parameters in another PXW-Z100 to enable the matching of quality and image tones when using a multi-camera setup.      

    Remote control with WiFi

    Focus, zoom, aperture settings and ‘record start/stop’ can be remote controlled using the browser function of a smartphone or tablet.

      Notes

      Photolease is an independent finance company who have specialised in leasing equipment to the imaging industry for over twenty five years.

      THE ADVANTAGES OF LEASING

      1. Banking facilities left available for special projects and unforeseen expenses.
      2. Small initial outlay usually amounting to just one months rental.
      3. Payment can be spread over a period of one to four years dependent upon value and type of equipment.
      4. A single payment at the end of the lease guarantees retention of the asset for the remainder of its working life.
      5. If you want to sell the equipment after the lease has ended you will receive the sale proceeds.
      6. Rentals are fully tax deductible.
      7. Cash flow is protected and the asset earns revenue in payment of the lease.
      8. No need to be VAT registered.

       

       

      What happens at the end of the lease?

      We will extend the agreement indefinitely on payment of a single further monthly rental. After that you can keep the equipment and will never have to pay any more.

      Isn't leasing just for companies who can't afford the cash?
      No. Companies who lease do so because they know that there are better uses for their spare funds.

      Is leasing only relevant for large acquisitions?
      No. Transactions of all sizes are completed using lease agreements. You can lease equipment worth as little as £1000.

      Do I have to insure the equipment?
      Yes. It is your responsibility to keep the equipment insured for all risks for the term of the agreement.

      What happens if the equipment becomes faulty?
      You have the protection of the manufacturers and/or suppliers warranty. Responsibility for repairs out of warranty are yours.

      What about VAT?
      Rentals attract VAT. This can be reclaimed if you are VAT registered. Please check your VAT status, or consult your accountant

      What can be included in the agreement?
      Leasing enables the whole solution to be financed. This can include hardware, software, installation, training and warranties

      Can the equipment be upgraded?
      Yes. The equipment can be upgraded during the course of the agreement. Speak to us for further details.

      Is it possible to settle the agreement early?
      Yes. However we always recommend you speak to your accountant to make sure it does not create an adverse tax position.

      Is there a penalty for settling early?
      No. If you clear the account before it has run it’s full term then there is a reduction in the full amount payable.

      Can I pay a deposit to lower my monthly outlay?
      Yes. However you would need to contact us to find the correct figures based on your deposit amount.
