Sony has introduced a new camera in its CineAlta camera system. The Venice is the company's first full-frame digital motion picture camera, combining a newly developed 36x24mm full-frame sensor and compatibility with a wide range of lenses, including anamorphic, Super 35mm and full-frame PL mount.

The lens mount can also be changed to handle E-mount lenses for shooting situations that require smaller, lighter, wider lenses. User-selectable areas of the image sensor allow shooting in Super 35 mm 4-perf. Future firmware upgrades are planned to allow the camera to handle 36mm wide 6K resolution. Fast image scan technology minimizes the so-called "jello" effect caused by vibration when using a rolling shutter.

A new color management system and wide color gamut gives users increased control in grading and post-production. Venice also has more than 15 stops of latitude.

The camera uses Sony's established 16-bit RAW/X-OCN and XAVC workflows using the portable memory recorder AXS-R7. It is also compatible with current and upcoming hardware accessories for CineAlta cameras (DVF-EL200 Full HD OLED Viewfinder, AXS-R7 recorder, AXS-CR1 and AR1 card reader, AXS and SxS memory cards).

Sony claims it is the industry's first camera with a built-in eight-stage glass ND filter system, minimizing the replacement work of an external ND filter and make shooting progress efficient. The camera has a control panel placed on the left and right sides of the cameras.

Sony will give Venice users the option to customize their camera by enabling the features matched to individual production requirements. Optional licenses will be available in permanent, monthly and weekly durations to expand the camera’s capabilities with new features including 4K anamorphic and full frame, each sold separately.

The Venice CineAlta digital motion picture camera system is scheduled to be available in February 2018.
