These two 4K video cameras are expected around fall of 2016. The AG-UX180 features a 1-inch sensor, 20X zoom, and 60P at 4K. The AG-UX90 also features a 1-inch sensor but has a 15X zoom and only reaches 30P at 4K. 4096×2160 will be at 24P only. These cameras are expected to sell for $4000 and $3000 respectively. These cameras use SD cards but codec has not yet been disclosed.
If the image and dynamic range from the AG-UX180 is good enough then we think they will have beaten the competition given the 60P at 4K. These cameras are aimed at run and gun, documentary, and ENG. Quite frankly the AG-UX180 is looking much better, at least on paper, than Sony’s new Z150.
