Sony VENICE2 with 8K Image Sensor Cine (DVF-EL200 VF & Full HD & Anamorphic License) - VENICE2-8K/CINE


36x24mm Full-Frame Sensor for Cinema

VENICE 2 features one of two 36x24mm full-frame image sensors, designed specifically for the demands and performance of high-end cinematography. Each offers remarkable sensitivity, latitude and colour rendition, and because the sensor blocks are interchangeable, users can easily switch between sensors—without any extra firmware—and can even use the sensor from their original VENICE. The new 8K sensor can capture images up to a maximum resolution of 8640 x 5760, while the established 6K sensor offers up to 6048 x 4032. Both offer powerful oversampling for incredible 4K images.

Creative Freedom

Full-Frame full width 36 mm 8K and 6K

In full-frame, you can use the full width of the sensors (8640 or 6048 pixels) for widescreen spherical 2.39:1 or Large Format Scope. Full-Frame can be used creatively in several ways – for example, to allow for extra shallow depth of field
or super-wide shooting.

Super35 full height 2.0x squeeze Anamorphic

For anamorphic shooting and production, Super35 full height 2x squeeze anamorphic is

Super35 17:9 and 16:9

These popular imager sizes have native support in VENICE 2, and the 8K sensor makes it possible to capture 5.8K footage in these modes. Current Super35mm PL mount lenses can be used as well.

Surround View (Look Around)

Using the 6K sensor, the camera records only the active area but the viewfinder and on-set monitors can display a 5% margin around it. Surround View supports three imager modes:
3.8K 16:9, 4K 17:9 and 4K 4:3.

Phenomenal Dynamic Range 

VENICE 2’s 8K sensor has an exceptional 16 stops of dynamic range, while the 6K sensor boasts 15+ stops of latitude. This means that both imagers can deliver phenomenal images with very little noise, in conditions that range from searing sunlight to almost no light. VENICE 2 also excels at High Dynamic Range imaging, allowing for unprecedented creative freedom
in grading.

Dual Base ISO

VENICE 2 features dual base ISO, meaning that the 8K sensor offers Base ISO3200 in addition to Base ISO800, while the 6K sensor has Base ISO500 and Base ISO2500. 8K sensor excels in low-light, High Dynamic Range capture, with an
exposure latitude from 6 stops over to 10 stops under 18% Middle Gray, for a total of 16 stops. 6K sensor offers an exposure latitude from 6 stops over to 9 stops under 18% Middle Gray, for a total of 15+ stops.

More Colors for More Expression

VENICE 2 can exceed the BT.2020 colour space, with a colour range wider than DCI-P3. This means it can beautifully reproduce the true colour of the scene in front of your lens. The camera also provides a broad palette in the grading suite, using the established workflow of Sony’s S-Log3 and Ultra-wide Color space, S-Gamut3. Plus, VENICE 2’s 8K and 6K sensors match colours almost perfectly, making your grading experience even better.

High Frame Rate

VENICE 2 can shoot at speeds of up to 120fps at 4K and 90fps at 6K when using the 6K sensor. In combination with an anamorphic license, it also allows shooting at speeds of up to 75fps at 4K 4:3 and 72fps at 4K 6:5. With the 8K sensor, VENICE 2 can achieve up to 60fps at 8.2K and 90fps at 5.8K.

Fast Shutter

Jello effect is something we don’t need when filming. VENICE 2 has high-speed readout sensors that minimize the jello effects typical with CMOS sensors.
