Sony Venice 6K Camera

Sony Venice 6K camera features an all-new Full-Frame sensor with the classic 36 x 24mm dimensions that have been a staple of photography for over 100 years. Designed exclusively for high-end cinematography, this sensor can capture images up to a maximum resolution of 6048 x 4032.

Switchable imager modes mean VENICE can support an unprecedented number of cinematic aspect ratios for complete creative freedom:

Full width 36 mm 6K

In full-frame, you can use the full 6048 pixel width of the sensor for 6K imager modes such as 3:2, 2.39:1*, 1.85:1, 17:9 and 16.9*. Equivalent to 4-perforation motion picture film, these 6K modes allow for extra shallow depth of field, super-wide shooting and other creative effects.

Super35 anamorphic 4K

For super wide screen productions, VENICE offers two full height 2x squeeze anamorphic imager modes that include 6:5 and 4:3 recording modes for 12:5 (known as 2.39:1) and 8:3 (2.66:1) scenes respectively.

Explore how VENICE can meet your production requirements with the firmware and licensing requirements in the aspect ratio chart:

Sony Venice 6K camera: Fast shutter

VENICE’s high speed readout sensor minimises the jello effect typical in CMOS sensors.

Phenomenal latitude

Sony VENICE has an exceptional 15+ stops of latitude, with low noise for extraordinary performance in delivering phenomenal images in conditions from searing sunlight to almost no light. VENICE’s real-world performance also excels at High Dynamic Range imaging and allows unprecedented creative freedom in grading.

More colours for more expression

VENICE can exceed Rec. 2020 colour space. This means the colour range is wider than DCI-P3 and can beautifully reproduce the true colour of the scene in front of your lens. This also provides the broad palette in the grading suite using the established workflow of Sony’s third-generation LOG gamma encoding (S-Log3), and ultra-wide colour space.

Sony Venice 6K camera: Dual Base ISO

Sony Venice 6K camera has a base ISO of 500 to provide the optimal dynamic range for typical cinematography applications with on-set lighting. A secondary High Base ISO of 2500 excels in low-light High Dynamic Range capture, with an exposure latitude from 6 stops over to 9 stops under 18% Middle Gray, for a total of 15 stops. High Base ISO 2500 is ideal whenever you’re using slow lenses or shooting dimly lit environments. Combining ISO2500 with VENICE’s internal eight-step Optical ND filter system offers the ability to emulate different ISO’s while maintaining maximum latitude of +6 and -9 stops, enabling you to use VENICE as an ISO1250 camera.

PL lens mount

Sony Venice 6K camera comes with the industry-standard PL lens mount. It is compatible with all Super35 and full-frame PL lenses, spherical and anamorphic. The lens mount includes contacts that support Cooke/i Technology. Lens information is recorded as metadata frame by frame.

Lever lock type E-mount*

Choose from the growing eco-system of E-mount lenses and, via third party adaptors, the world of SLR and rangefinder lenses. Lever lock operation provides added security with large lenses and in most cases lens support rigs don’t need to be removed when changing lens. Switching from PL Mount to E-mount is can be done by simply removing six hex screws while E-mount lens iris operation is controllable via assignable button.

Anamorphic look

VENICE’s support for 2x squeeze anamorphic lenses, combined with its ability to shoot 4:3 and 6:5 aspect ratios at a horizontal resolution of 4K, allows the capture of breathtakingly beautiful images with stunning lens flare, bokeh and emotional impact for both 2.4:1 and 2.66:1 widescreen cinema releases.

Sony Venice 6K camera: 6K high resolution*

The stunning full 6K resolution of the camera can be recorded directly in X-OCN (16 bit eXtended tonal range Original Camera Negative) file format. Also, XAVC 4K can be captured onto SxS cards while still sampling from the full 6K resolution of the sensor.

*Firmware update required.

Select FPS

The Select FPS function lets you choose frame rates from 1 frame per second to as high as 60 fps, depending on imager mode. Firmware Version 2.0 supports Select FPS for all the available imager modes, while Version 3.0 enables Select FPS for the two additional imager modes noted in the firmware timeline.

Engineered to survive

VENICE’s chassis is engineered to be amazingly robust and has been rigorously tested in the harshest conditions. Its ventilation system is completely isolated from all electronic components to prevent ingress of dust, sand and splash. The silent-running fan can be cleaned or even swapped out on set quickly and easily.

Easily configurable

Sony Venice 6K camera has a fully modular design and even the sensor block is interchangeable. So, as sensor technology advances in far future, you have the opportunity to upgrade without investing in a new camera. In order to maintain ergonomic balance for operators, the top handle and viewfinder are easily adjustable. As the height of the camera from the bottom to the optical center of the lens mount is the same as the F55, base plates and other accessories used for the F55 can be used with VENICE. The AXS-R7 recorder can be attached to VENICE with just four screws.

World’s first 8-step mechanical ND Filters*

VENICE is the world’s first camera of its class with a servo-controlled 8-step mechanical ND filter mechanism built into the camera chassis. It offers a massive ND of 0.3 (1/2 = 1 stop) to ND2.4 (1/256 = 8 stops) range that reduces time lost on set changing external filters. The ND filters also greatly increase VENICE’s flexibility when being controlled remotely on drones and cranes, or in an underwater housing.

*Based on Sony market research.

Intuitive on-set operation

VENICE has a surprisingly compact design which allows easier shooting in confined spaces or on drones. Control buttons are carefully positioned for intuitive operation and even illuminate for easy use on dark sets. There are control displays on both sides of the camera, with the main display positioned on the camera outside for fast access to settings by the camera assistant while shooting. The camera operator’s OLED mini display allows intuitive control of commonly accessed features, on-set monitoring operation benefits from an extra HD output alongside the standard 12G-SDI (capable of 4K content on a single BNC cable).

The control interface is an all-new design based on extensive researches with camera operators.

Sony HDC-5500 camera 4K

Sony HDC-5500 system camera 4K brings new levels of image quality, portability and creative flexibility to live production environments. Enjoy premium 4K/HD/HDR picture quality – and anticipate tomorrow’s production needs while maintaining full compatibility with today’s workflows and system hardware.

Sony HDC-5500 system camera 4K brings new levels of image quality

Direct 4K output

A newly-developed on-board signal processor allows the Sony HDC-5500 camera 4K to output 4K signals directly without the addition of a dedicated external baseband processor unit, saving rack space in the confines of an OB vehicle or studio environment. It can also output 4K signals directly via 12G-SDI. Thanks to an all-new 4K baseband transmission system, the compact camera is ideal for use in steadicam and wireless camera systems

Impressive sensitivity and colour reproduction

Capture premium pictures with Sony’s advanced 2/3-inch 4K CMOS sensor with global shutter technology that eliminates the ‘jello effect’ and banding noise. This allows the HDC-5500 to capture pristine 4K images with exceptionally low noise (-62dB), impressive sensitivity (F10 at 1080/59.94p or F11 at 1080/50p) and high dynamic range, while achieving the ITU-R BT.2020 broadcast standard wide colour space. It’s teamed with a specially developed LSI Digital Signal Processor that fully realises the extraordinary imaging power of this new sensor.

Get the look

Broaden your creative possibilities and achieve exactly the look you want in any shooting situation. Low-key Saturation ensures rich, vibrant colours in low-light areas. Powerful gamma functions give absolute control over fine-tuning tonal values, contrast and detail.

Simultaneous HDR and SDR production

The HDC-5500 can capture High Dynamic Range images, supporting Sony’s SR Live workflow for simultaneous HDR/SDR production with reduced inventory requirements.

Easy transmission change

The HDC-5500 supports optical fibre transmission as standard with ultra high bitrate (UHB) transmission. With an optional side panel, HDC-5500 is compatible with HDCU-3500/3100/2000 series Camera Control Units. It is quick and easy to reconfigure the camera at any time – for fibre, third-generation digital triax or wireless operation – with a choice of optional outside panels.

The go anywhere camera

Combining exceptional lightness and strength, the magnesium alloy body is complemented by carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) outside panels. Sure, stable handling is enhanced by the camera’s low centre of gravity, easily adjustable shoulder pad and widened hand grip area. Also ideal for handheld operation, HDC series studio cameras offer exceptional user ergonomics in a wide range of studio and field-based production environments.

Seamless integration

Backwards compatibility with Sony’s industry-acclaimed HDC-2000 series system cameras simplifies smooth integration with your current live production infrastructures, including cameras and CCUs.

Multi-speed slo-motion acquisition

Adding an optional license enables high frame-rate (HFR) HD image capture at 8x, 6x, 4x, 3x, and 2x. Simultaneous capture of high dynamic range (HDR) images allows simultaneous production of HDR and SDR at an SR-Live event.

Display camera number and tally

Assigned camera number is indicated on the camera body by a graphical electronic paper display. Displayed information is updated automatically to reflect system changes. There’s also an LED tally lamp beside the camera number display.

Rich focus assist functions

The Viewfinder Detail function adds dedicated image-enhancing edge signals directly to the viewfinder, helping the operator to focus quickly and precisely in any shooting situation. It’s complemented by a Focus Assist Indicator and advanced Focus Position Meter function.

Servo controlled ND and CC filters

Dual optical filter wheels for Neutral Density (ND) and Colour Correction (CC)* open up wider creative possibilities. Both filters can be controlled from a remote control panel, master setup unit, or directly from the camera head.

Network TRUNK

Network TRUNK (via LAN port) allows high-speed data transmission between the camera and CCU at up to 1 Gbps to support configurability* with IP-based products and systems.

* Camera operating in fibre configuration.

Truly exceptional results of Evie

However, for truly exceptional results which will automatically adapt for unexpected changes in image composition and brightness levels encountered in sports, news gathering or any live broadcast event, then frame by frame processing is required.

HDR to SDR conversion for truly exceptional results which will automatically adapt

HDR Evie for live broadcast

For instance, while solutions are available for “frame by frame” HDR to SDR conversions, this typically involves a post process which requires adjustment and definition of “metadata” for each frame, the metadata is then used in the real time playback of the content. This is both a time consuming and expensive process, and certainly not practical for live broadcast.

Solutions are available for “frame by frame” HDR to SDR  conversions, this typically involves a post process

HDR Evie proprietary algorithms

GreenMachine HDR Evie addresses all these problems. We have implemented proprietary algorithms developed over the past few years in cooperation with the Technology team led by Professor Mike Christmann at Hochschule RheinMain University of Applied Sciences in Wiesbaden, Germany. This solution has been extensively evaluated and tested by content providers and in live broadcast applications by major broadcasters. The results have proven exceptional, far superior to any HDR to SDR conversions available today.
