Sony VLITEPAC1 CineAlta VENICE Full Frame 6K Camera with DVF-EL200 Viewfinder
This Sony VLITEPAC1 CineAlta VENICE special bundle includes the Venice camera (MPC3610) + DVF-EL200 Viewfinder.
Sony proudly introduces the next generation motion picture camera system, forward thinking to large format production, the VENICE.
It is a cinema camera created by and for the cinematographer, and has been created based on significant feedback from film industry professionals. The VENICE is equipped with a newly developed full-frame image sensor meeting the needs of the film industry in pushing the boundaries of large format image capture with exceptional picture quality. With the wide latitude and gamut recorded by the VENICE, freedom of expression is significantly expanded in grading and based on established workflow. With a user friendly design, clear and simple menu navigation, and with a highly durable and reliable construction, in using VENICE, you can simply concentrate on filming, and not the camera.
New 36×24 mm Full Frame CMOS Image Sensor
Supports image capture at resolutions up to 6048 × 4032 pixels.* By switching the imager mode, the unit can natively support many shooting formats, including Super 35 24.3 × 12.8 mm, 4096 × 2160 pixel resolution (equivalent to 3-perforation motion picture film) and 4:3 Anamorphic* Super 35 24.3 × 18.3 mm, 4096 × 3024 pixel resolution (equivalent to 4-perforation motion picture film)
The unit supports 15+ stops of latitude. It features very low noise for delivering phenomenal images in conditions from searing sunlight to almost no light, allowing for unprecedented creative freedom in grading.
Wide Color Space Capture
Images can be captured in a color space that exceeds DCI-P3. The degree of freedom in the grading is dramatically improved when using Sony’s S-Gamut3.Cine color space together with S-Log3.
PL Lens Mount
Equipped with the industry-standard PL lens mount. The lens mount supports Cooke /i technology, and lens information is recorded as metadata frame by frame.
Compact Body and Intuitive Operation
A relatively compact design for a device equipped with a large Full Frame image sensor, achieved using Sony’s miniaturization technology, which allows easier shooting in confined spaces or on drones. The position, shape, and size of the control buttons reflect the requirements of camera operators for intuitive operation. They also feature backlighting for ease of use in dark locations.
Engineered to Survive
The chassis is made from magnesium alloy for high robustness and durability. The ventilation system is completely isolated from all electronic components to prevent ingress of dust, sand, and liquids.* The silent-running fan can be cleaned or even swapped out on set quickly and easily to maintain high redundancy.
Features a fully modular design, allowing you to flexibly support various rigs and peripheral equipment according to the shooting application. The top handle and viewfinder are easily adjustable to maintain ergonomic balance and ease of use with lenses. The height of the optical axis is the same as the PMW-F55, permitting the use of peripheral devices used with the PMW-F55. And an optional AXS-R7 Portable Memory Recorder can be securely attached to the rear of the unit using four hex screws.
8-Position Optical ND Filter
Employs an 8-position optical ND filter. It offers a wide ND range of 0.3ND (1/2 = 1 stop) to 2.4ND (1/256 = 8 stops) that reduces time lost on set changing external ND filters. The ND filter mechanism is servo-controlled.
Intuitive and Familiar On-Set Operation
The menu screen is available from both sides of the camera, with the main control display on the Assistant side of the camera for fast access to the camera settings by the camera assistant while shooting. An OLED mini display on the Operator side allows the operator to access commonly accessed features such as ND filter position, shutter, white balance, and exposure index (EI), making it convenient for the operator to check the status of the unit.
Various Recording Formats
The unit supports recording on SxS memory cards in XAVC and MPEG HD formats. In addition, it can record in 16-bit RAW or X-OCN format onto AXS memory cards when used in combination with an optional AXS-R7 Portable Memory Recorder.
License options for individual production requirements
With VENICE, Sony is giving users the option to customize their camera by enabling the features needed, matched to their individual production requirements. Optional licenses will be available in permanent, monthly and weekly durations to expand the cameras capabilities with new features including 4K anamorphic and full frame, each sold separately.
License Options in Varied Timeframes
As mentioned, VENICE offers a currently unique chance to purchase optional software licenses for less than the normal 1-year format to accommodate production needs. Your VENICE camera will come standard with up to 4K 17:9 4096x2160 and with 3.8K 16:9 3840x2160. Other options can only be achieved with the purchase of optional Anamorphic License and Full Frame License. Please review the handy chart available in our images for your reference. Future upgrades will target the asterisk items.
