I’m looking for a rugged, unobtrusive UHD Sony camcorder. Criteria: small, lightweight, auto-focus, with log codecs/image quality which would allow it to be principal camera on an action doc, and also to intercut as a quick alt angle for a corporate FS7/FS9 interview shoot.
If I had my druthers I’d use the a7S iii, but by the time you put a zoom on it, it seems clunkier than a camcorder. So I’ve been looking over the smaller Sony camcorders. The Z280 is bigger than I want.
Is there a sweet spot in prosumer territory?

The new (just out) Sony F6 is the camera for you. Fully pro but small, light, has everything.

If the Z280 is too big, the FX6 is DEFINITELY too big. Why not go with the Z90? That’s about as small as a camcorder gets, and it has autofocus and SLog3.
