Sony VENICE 2 8K Camera

Key specifications:

  • Interchangeable CMOS 8.6K Sensor unit
  • 16 Stops of Dynamic Range
  • $60,000
  • Removable PL Mount featuring the Cooke /i Protocol
  • Sony E Mount
  • Dual-native ISO (800/3200)
  • 4K ProRes 4444/422HQ Internal Recording

It’s always nice to see competition at the higher end, especially since some of the better features end up trickling down to lesser models in time.  We are however saddened to see that Sony has blocked features that require paid licenses to lock on this model.
