With an advanced LSI, the camera is able to deliver lifelike 4K 4:2:2 10- bit images. This is achieved since the LSI features an intelligent noise reduction, enhanced detailed production and distortion correction technologies. This sensor is more powerful than the HD sensors.
The 17x professional zoom lens
The professional PXW-Z280 features a 17x professional HD zoom lens with three independent rings with end-stop and large focal length. These kinds of lens are capable of zooming images from 30.3 mm to 515 mm. The three independent rings allow manual control of focus, zoom, and iris.
