The new Sony VENICE camera brings professional cinematography to the next level. 6K sensor and 15 stops of dynamic range – 9 stops below and 6 stops above 18% grey – for beautiful images, with out of the box 4K 17:9, 3.8K 16:9 UHD capabilities and the option to upgrade to 6K 1.85:1, 6K 17:9, 5.7K, 6K 2.39:1 with firmware.

You get superb dynamic range, a wide colour gamut3 that exceeds BT.2020 colour space and this camera matches the performance of the F65 and F55.

The VENICE is a reliable partner for creativity with the ability to control via Wi-Fi. The extra shallow depth of field captures images that have the equivalent of ½ stop shallower than super 35mm.
