    Sony PXW-Z100 - Record to SD Card?
    #1
    Question
    I am very interested in the Sony PXW-Z100 4K camcorder. I know the camcorder uses XQD cards to record XAVC format 4K and HD content. But the camera also has an SD card slot and I read that a recent firmware upgrade enabled AVCHD recording.

    My question is: Is it possible to record to the SD card when recording in AVCHD mode? Or can AVCHD only be recorded to XQD cards?

    I searched all over the Sony website but could not find an answer.

    I really hope that Sony enabled SD card recording for AVCHD mode. That would make this camera much more viable for long-form recording, e.g. continuous shooting of 12+ hour long conferences. Buying enough XQD cards for those kind of situations can get expensive.

    I'm curious to know why you are interested in the Z100 rather than the Z150?

    The Z100 offers a much higher quality codec for 4K acquisition. I am interested in this camera for 4K production. I will rarely ever be using AVCHD, but was wondering if AVCHD to SD card is even possible for the occasional situation when it might come in handy.
