23MP Raw and 4K Video
The Z1 sports two 1-inch type illuminated CMOS sensors with a maximum ISO of 6400. It can capture 23MP Raw stills and 4K/30p 360-degree video and features new image processing algorithms and capture support that includes a new HDR Rendering mode, an Interval Composite mode and a multi-bracket mode. Stills can be recorded in JPEG or Adobe DNG format, while video is enhanced via a 4-channel microphone for 360-degree spatial audio recording. An updated lens and an improved aperture mechanism, for three aperture settings, as well as 3-axis stabilization adds to this unique camera’s appeal.
