Full Frame

Art of Large Format

By Jon Fauer It was fitting that Sony introduced a working Full Frame prototype of Venice the camera in Amsterdam the city. Two weeks ago, Sony showed a Super35 version of Venice in LA. Howls of despair were surely heard in Tokyo and in the short intervening time, a Full Frame 24x36mm model serendipitously appeared at IBC. A short walk to the Rijksmuseum is… read more… → continue…

Sony unveils the Venice, its first full-frame cinema camera system

Sony has just unveiled a new, groundbreaking (at least for them) cinema camera. It’s called the Sony Venice, and it’s the company’s first 36x24mm full-frame digital motion picture camera system.

Designed in “close collaboration with the creative community,” the Venice is the newest generation of Sony’s CineAlta series, which promises natural skin tones, “elegant” highlight handling and wide dynamic range. In the case of the Venice, the camera’s 36x24mm sensor promises 15 stops of latitude to tackle challenging lighting scenarios, and a brand new color management system with ultra wide color gamut for more flexibility in post.

The headline feature is the sensor itself, though. The full-frame chip can be switched out by the camera’s user by simply removing four screws, and at 36x24mm it’s compatible with Anamorphic, Super 35mm, Spherical and Full Frame PL mount lenses. If you’re really feeling frisky, the lens mount can be modified to support E-mount lenses.

Additional features include a built-in 8-stage glass ND filter system, weather sealing, 10-bit XAVC, 16-bit RAW and S-OCN recording via the Sony AXS-R7 recorder, and a modular design that allows you to use the Venice with current and upcoming CineAlta accessories.

The camera is expected to arrive officially in February of 2018, and while Sony didn’t reveal a price, it seems filmmakers will have the option to ‘license’ different builds for specific production requirements like 4K anamorphic and Full Frame.
