How about Sony's pxw-z100 professional 4k camera?

The Sony PXW-Z100, along with a high-performance G-lens compatible with 4K format, weighs only 3kg in total. It adopts the XAVC recording format first used on the PMW-F55 CineAlta pxw z100

You can use a high recording rate of 500Mbps or 600Mbps to record 4K (4096 x 2160, 50fps or 60fps, 4:2:2, 10 bits, intra frame compression, recorded in MXF format) content.

In addition, you can also choose between QFHD (3840x2160) and HD (1920x1080) resolutions, both of which are compatible with most 4K TVs.

Sony PXW-Z100 adopts the same shooting principle as traditional handheld professional camcorders, so it can quickly shoot 4K content without professional training.

In addition, during the editing process, 4K content can be downconverted into high-definition format for output, achieving better image quality than full HD production. This not only allows 4K program production to be directly integrated into the existing workflow of professional users, but also brings about an improvement in image quality.
