Providing a heavily accessorized camera package ready for not only your next film shoot but for those beyond, the Sony VENICE 6K Digital Motion Picture Camera Package provides support for full-frame production at up to 6K resolution, as well as anamorphic production. The kit includes the AXS-R7 external recorder that enables raw capture. The camera body features a full-frame CMOS sensor with 15+ stops of dynamic range and the included full-frame license enables using the entire sensor, or you can choose to window the sensor to shoot Super 35.

The included full-frame upgrade permanently liberates the camera from its original Super 35mm limitation, allowing you to shoot full-frame at aspect ratios of 3:2, 1.85:1, 17:9, and 2.39:1 at 6K, or 16:9 at 5.7K. The included anamorphic upgrade enables shooting 4K at either 4:3 or 6:5 for capturing anamorphic images on the camera. You can record using XAVC in DCI or UHD 4K, as well as HD, internally, or capture raw on the included AXS-R7 recorder using a variety of recording data rate options. The included EVF features a 0.7" OLED panel with 1920 x 1080 resolution and 200 cd/M2 brightness. A built-in diopter ring enables adjusting the EVF to suit most eyes. The built-in eye sensor controls the anti-burn-in function of the OLED.

Sony VENICE 6K Digital Motion Picture Camera

Providing a flexible design configuration within a single camera body, the Sony VENICE 6K Digital Motion Picture Camera is meant to provide you with just the amount of camera you need, so you don't have to invest in more than necessary. It features a full-frame CMOS sensor with 15+ stops of dynamic range, but in its basic configuration it windows the sensor to shoot Super 35. The camera comes with a removable PL Mount that supports the Cooke /i Technology lens metadata protocols, allowing you to work with cinema-style glass ranging from vintage to modern. As is, the camera supports DCI and UHD 4K capture, while planned and scheduled firmware updates will enable anamorphic, full-frame, and select frame rates from 1 to 72 fps.

Remove the PL Mount to reveal a Sony E-Mount with a locking outer ring that allows you to mount your lens and then rotate the ring to secure it, creating a strong mounting system that does not require you to rotate your E-Mount lens when mounting it to the camera. Eight integrated and motorized ND filters range from clear to seven stops of ND in one-stop increments. The camera features a built-in assistant-side info screen, along with a smaller basic info display screen on the operator side of the camera. It features dual SxS card slots that allow you to capture XAVC or HD ProRes in-camera.

Use Case

The VENICE is designed to start you off with a basic camera and, through firmware updates and licenses, upgrade it over time. This allows you to upgrade it as your needs grow, instead of having to buy a whole new camera system. Licenses can be permanent upgrades or used for limited periods of time, for those jobs that require more features than you normally use.

Sensor

The sensor features more than 15 stops of dynamic range and has been designed to exceed the BT.2020 color space—which is larger than the DCI-P3 color space—enabling you to create stunning images with a camera that already exceeds future specs.

Full-Frame Sensor

In full-frame, you can use the full 6048-pixel width of the sensor for widescreen spherical 2.39:1, or large format scope. A firmware upgrade and license are required for full-frame recording.

Fast Shutter

The VENICE features a high-speed readout that minimizes the dreaded "jello" camera effect that plagues some CMOS sensor cameras.

PL Mount

The VENICE comes with the industry-standard PL lens mount. It is compatible with all Super 35 and full-frame PL lenses, spherical and anamorphic. The removable lens mount includes contacts that support Cooke /i Technology. The camera's lens information is recorded as metadata frame by frame.

E-Mount

Removing the PL Mount exposes the camera's E-Mount, which allows compatibility with E-Mount lenses. This E-Mount is designed with a lever lock that eliminates the need to rotate your lens when mounting, and the lever lock secures the lens in the mount minimizing play. Rotating of the locking collar means that in most cases lens support rigs don't need to be removed, which saves time during production. A planned firmware update is required to take full advantage of the E-Mount.

Recording

The VENICE records XAVC UHD 4K or HD ProRes internally to its SxS card slots. An optional AXS-R7 on-board recorder will enable 16-bit Raw and X-OCN recording to AXS cards with a future firmware update.

Sony DVF-EL200 Full HD OLED Viewfinder

The DVF-EL200 Full HD OLED Viewfinder from Sony is for use with the PMW-F55/F5 and VENICE 6K motion picture cameras. The viewfinder features a 0.7" OLED panel with 1920 x 1080 resolution and 200 cd/m2 brightness. A built-in diopter ring enables adjusting the EVF to suit most eyes. The built-in eye sensor controls the anti-burn-in function of the OLED.

In addition to the improved OLED panel, the DVF-EL200 features more durability and usability with an eye distance measure sensor, rotary encoders for controlling brightness, and contrast. It also features a LEMO-type connector and quick release system to detach the viewfinder from the camera.

Compatibility

Compatible with CineAlta cameras, including the PMW-F5, PMW-F55, and VENICE.

Dust and Splash Resistant

The viewfinder is dust and splash resistant, making it suitable for use in location shooting as well as in the studio.

Rotary Encoder Control

The viewfinder features a rotary encoder and menu button. These allow you to quickly access and control brightness, contrast, and peaking without having to open the main camera menu display.

Eye Sensor

The DVF-EL200 will automatically invert its OLED display when its proximity sensor detects your eye has moved away. The proximity sensor has improved responsiveness compared to the DVF-EL100.

Requirements

To use the DVF-EL200 with F55 and F5, viewfinder cables and CBK-55AT attachment are required (available separately).

Sony Anamorphic Permanent License for Sony VENICE Camera

The Sony Anamorphic Permanent License for Sony VENICE Camera upgrades your camera to shoot anamorphic images using the sensor at 4096 x 3024, yielding a 4:3 aspect ratio to originate on with your anamorphic glass. A planned future firmware upgrade will allow you to shoot at 4096 x 3432, providing you with a 6:5 aspect ratio to record your anamorphic images within. Once installed, the anamorphic mode is permanently available for you to choose to shoot in.

Sony AXS-R7 External 4K RAW Recorder for VENICE, PMW-F55 & F5

The AXS-R7 4K RAW Recorder from Sony attaches seamlessly to the Sony VENICE, PMW-F55, and PMW-F5 CineAlta cameras, speeding up the 4K production workflow. This 16-bit linear recorder offers up to 6K capture for the VENICE, and up to 4K120 and 4K60 RAW recording for the PMW-F55 and F5 cameras respectively. For shooting at higher frame rates, the recorder captures 2K RAW at up to 240 fps, for playback with 10x super slow motion. This recorder also offers 4K Raw/X-OCN cache recordings up to 30 seconds while in standby mode (approximate storage time at 23.98p).

This AXS-R7 recorder is compatible with the high-speed, slim S48 AXS series memory cards (available separately). It features dual memory card slots for extra security and simultaneous recording at rates up to 60p. Built to work in challenging field conditions, this recorder's rugged, all-metal casing has a sealed ventilation system that is dust- and splash-resist and attaches securely to the camera body. It is suitable for feature film, television commercial, reality, documentary, and wildlife cinematographers who require continuous, full-resolution 6K VENICE capture or 4K RAW recording from their F55 and F5 cameras.

X-OCN 4K/2K Capture Platform

In addition to the RAW format, the AXS-R7 recorder also supports the X-OCN (extended tonal range Original Camera Negative) capture format. This format has two recording modes; X-OCN ST (Standard) and X-OCN LT (Light). X-OCN ST captures 4K 24p at 660 Mb/s and X-OCN LT offers efficient data rates for smaller and more manageable files, reducing cost and improving workflow speed.

High Speed 4K RAW Capture

The AXSR7 recorder captures continuous 16-bit 4K RAW at up to 120 fps and 60 fps from the PMW-F55 and F5 cameras respectively. When you play back at 24p, it produces a dramatic 5x super slow motion effect. For shooting at higher frame rates, the recorder captures 2K RAW at up to 240 fps from the PMW-F55 and F5, for playback with 10x super slow motion. This portable memory recorder is not compatible with the HXRIFR5 interface unit.

30-Second RAW Cache Recording

The AXS-R7 recorder offers RAW/X-OCN cache recording at 23.98p for approximately up to 30 seconds while in standby mode, an important feature in documentary or wildlife production where capturing spontaneous action is required. The cache recording time varies based on the frame rate and recording mode.

From Power-Up to Record in 0.5 Seconds

When the unit is powered on by pushing the REC button, the 'Quick Rec' mode gets activated. This mode accelerates the power on process and the recorder starts recording in about 0.5 seconds.

Durable Dust- and Splash-Resistant Metal Design

The AXS-R7 has a rugged, durable metal body built to work in challenging field conditions. It is dust- and splash-resistant, with electric parts and the ventilation shaft separated by a metal filter to prevent the entry of dust and water. Connection between the camera and the recorder is secured through a large quick-release top bracket that accepts four widely spaced 1/4" screws.

Dual Memory Card Slots Support High-Speed Slim AXS A Series

The AXS-R7 recorder features dual memory card slots and works with sleek, high-capacity, high-speed AXSM A series S48 memory cards (1TB and 512GB), which are designed to support the write speeds required for 4K RAW/X-OCN 120 fps recordings (with the PMW-F55 ). It also works with the AXS A series S24 slim cards (blue trim, 1TB, 512GB, and 256GB capacity) for recording 4K RAW up to 60 fps and 2K RAW up to 240 fps. By using Sony's free RAW Viewer application, the recorded files can easily be played back and checked on a PC or MAC.
