Sony VENICE 2 Digital Motion Picture Camera (6K)

Featuring internal recording onto a high-speed ASX card, internal recording formats up to ProRes 4K 4444 and 422, an interchangeable sensor, and updated usability and body design, the 6K Sony VENICE 2 Digital Motion Picture Camera is a step up for DPs, camera assistants, colorists, VR, and VFX departments thanks to its high-resolution capture and filmlike imagery.


SKU: MPC-3626 Category: Tag:


The 6K VENICE 2 uses the same sensor as the original VENICE, and it has a dual ISO range of 500/2500. The updated camera body allows you to swap the 6K sensor for an 8.6K sensor to gain a higher-base ISO and higher-resolution images, though the 6K sensor allows for higher frame rates. As with the original VENICE, the VENICE 2 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. Remove the PL Mount to reveal a Sony E-Mount, to accept native E-mount lenses. Eight integrated and motorized ND filters range from clear to seven stops of ND in one-stop increments.

  • 4K output with LUT applied
  • Improved 3D LUT processing to improve picture quality¿
  • EI changes directly applied to S-Log3 outputs
  • Ethernet connector position changed to camera assistant side¿
  • Lemo 2-pin 12V output connector¿
  • Internal scratch track microphone installed¿
  • Zoom to Fit Monitoring: Crops the viewing outputs (VF/SDI/HDMI) to the desired aspect ratio while recording the full frame of the sensor for VFX and potential post-production reframing
  • LUT/ART/CDL file import via Ethernet/Wi-Fi
  • ASC-CDL values control via Ethernet/Wi-Fi allows you to have LUT and CDL values applied by the camera using either an Ethernet cable or Wi-Fi via a connected computer using a GUI; CDL values are now embedded in clip metadata
  • VENICE 2 supports control from an RM/RCP panel that can be used with broadcast camcorders and system cameras; when connected, ITU-R Rec. 2020 color space and HLG are selectable, and adjustment of various paint parameters is supported
