Newsshooter Review of Sony PXW-Z90 4K XDCAM

Chuck Fadely of Newsshooter reviews the Sony PXW-Z90 4K HDR XDCAM ($2,799) including a breakdown of its hybrid phase-detection autofocus and other key features.

“The autofocus is quite good and will hold on subjects even when shooting through things in the foreground. You can touch the screen to pick your focus point and rack focus by touching different points on the screen. The hybrid phase-detection autofocus shows the focus point with little green boxes on the screen to show what its tracking. You can choose whether it autofocuses over most of the frame (WIDE) in a zone, in the center, or with a flexible spot focus. You can also choose how fast it focuses.”
