SonyCine Returns To Cine Gear

By: SonyCine Team

Join the Sony Cinema team at Cine Gear 2021 for a chance to experience the latest from our cinema line! Curious about the differences between the original VENICE and VENICE 2? Then head to our set for a side-by-side comparison. We worked with cinematographer Michael Svitak (HBO’s The Staircase and Netflix’s Kate) to create a set that allows you to test the VENICE and VENICE 2 in various lighting scenarios using Litegear’s award-winning Auroris. These lighting scenarios include sitcom lighting, stylized red-blue lighting, a look without a top light, and more.

We also have the latest from our alpha and cinema camera lines, the Airpeak, and a host of product specialists to answer your questions.
