The first footage from Sony’s next-gen CineAlta doesn’t disappoint.
Sony unveiled VENICE, its full-frame 36x24mm CMOS sensor camera capable of shooting everything from full HD to 6K (6048 x 4032 3:2 mode at 23, 24 fps) earlier this month, and now, we’re seeing the first footage come in from the next-gen CineAlta camera.
Being full-frame, VENICE offers compatibility with a ton of glass. Everything from anamorphic and Super 35mm to spherical and full-frame PL mounts can visually tell your story. The PL-mount can even be changed out to support full-frame E-mount lenses. Like the Jenga of cameras.
While it obviously hasn’t been put to the test publicly yet, Sony claims VENICE touts more than 15 stops of latitude and can exceed the Rec. 2020 color space, which is wider than DCI-P3. File-based workflows will use 10-bit XAVC internal recordings to SxS cards or 16-bit RAW/X-OCN to Sony’s AXS-R7 external recorder on AXS cards.
