Sony's new VENICE 2 improves on the original in ways you probably never imagined possible.

VENICE 2 is a cinema camera created by and for the cinematographer. The camera comes with one of two full-frame image sensors, each offering exceptional picture quality. Thanks to new internal recording capabilities, users can capture even more colours and detail within the compact body they already know.


36x24mm Full-Frame Sensor for Cinema

VENICE 2 features one of two 36x24mm full-frame image sensors, designed specifically for the demands and performance of high-end cinematography. Each offers remarkable sensitivity, latitude and colour rendition, and because the sensor blocks are interchangeable, users can easily switch between sensors—without any extra firmware—and can even use the sensor from their original VENICE. The new 8K sensor can capture images up to a maximum resolution of 8640 x 5760, while the established 6K sensor offers up to 6048 x 4032. Both offer powerful oversampling for incredible 4K images.

Interchangeable Image Sensors​

VENICE 2 allows you to easily remove and replace the image sensor, swapping between the 8.6K and original 6K image sensor as required. This also means a 6K sensor can be swapped between VENICE and original VENICE 2.​

Internal 16-bit X-OCN and 4K ProRes Recording in a compact body

New for VENICE 2, cinematographers and colourists can unlock the incredible creative possibilities of 16-bit X-OCN recording, without an external recorder. Users can enjoy the full dynamic range and colour reproduction of the image sensor, capturing in 4K ProRes 4444 and 422 HQ. With such a compact design, and no external recorder, set-up is faster, simpler and easier, particularly for gimbals, Steadicams and drones.

Introducing the new Sony VENICE 2

Since its debut just a few short years ago, Sony’s high-end VENICE compact cine cam has remained the undisputed pinnacle of its professional video-production lineup, with nothing else really to compare – until now. With the launch of the new VENICE 2, Sony now offers cinematographers a significant step up, introducing some bold new features – including a revolutionary interchangeable sensor block – while preserving many of the best features and functions of the original model.
