Sony Venice 2: 8,6k professional full-frame camera

Posted on

Sony has officially introduced the new Sony Venice 2 digital camera. Venice 2 is a full-frame digital movie camera with the function of recording to an internal memory card in X-OCN format and the ability to select 8,6K or 6K matrices. The VENICE 2 camera can be equipped with 6K matrices (from the previous Venice camera) or a new 8,6K (49.7 MB), each of which provides exceptional image quality, according to the manufacturer.

Now cinematographers will be able to get more creative freedom with color correction thanks to a wide dynamic range (16 stops) and good color reproduction. This will also make it possible to get high-quality images with excellent detail in the shadows. In addition, the second version inherited the Dual Base ISO (800/3200) dual gain system and the built-in ND filter. The VENICE 2 camera can shoot in full-frame, full-frame anamorphic and Super 35mm 4K resolution, making it a versatile option for filmmakers. It is smaller than its predecessor, which allows it to be installed on a proprietary quadrocopter from Sony Airpeak S1.
