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. VENICE 2 offers a choice between 8K and 6K sensors, both of which boast incredibly wide latitude and gamut. Filmmakers have greater freedom of expression in grading than ever before, with either 16 or 15+ stops of latitude and exquisite colour rendition.
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. VENICE 2’s 8K sensor has an exceptional 16 stops of latitude, while the 6K sensor boasts 15+ stops of latitude. This means that both imagers can deliver phenomenal images with very little noise, in conditions that range from searing sunlight to almost no light. VENICE 2 also excels at High Dynamic Range imaging, allowing for unprecedented creative freedom in grading.
VENICE 2 can shoot at speeds of up to 120fps at 4K and 90fps at 6K, when using the 6K sensor. In combination with an anamorphic license, it also allows shooting at speeds of up to 75fps at 4K 4:3 and 72fps at 4K 6:5. With the 8K sensor, VENICE 2 can achieve up to 72fps at 8.2K and 120fps at 5.5K. The CBK-3620XS VENICE Extension System 2 allows for new levels of shooting flexibility with no compromise to image quality. Developed alongside VENICE 2 it offers wider bandwidth to support the VENICE 2’s 8K sensor, over twice as much cable distance (up to 12m) without a repeater box, additional control buttons and a built-in gyro sensor.
The Extension System consists of a front panel cover, image sensor block case with a choice of 3m and 12m extension cables. The new Extension System is fully compatible with VENICE 2 using the 8K or 6K sensors with latest firmware. It is also compatible with the original VENICE using latest firmware, including gyro sensor and four assignable buttons.
