New Sony Z5U camera announced

September 6, 2008 · Posted in B-Roll 

UPDATE: The U.S. model is the HVR-Z5U and can be found here.

Sony has announced the HVR-Z5J in Japan. I’m sure the U.S. version will be announced soon.

It seems to be the replacement for the Z1, especially since they also announced an FX-1000. It is both HDV (tape) and compact flash with a dedicated add-on card unit. Has xlr audio and a fixed 20x lens with zoom, focus, and iris, just like the Canon XHA1. Coming in December. FX1000 lacks the xlrs.
