Versatile, lightweight, and compact full-frame 8K cinema camera with 16 stops of latitude, image stabilization for PL and E-mount lenses. Easily configurable for solo and team production.

BURANO is a new concept in cinema cameras. It takes VENICE’s superior image quality and usability but re-imagines it for solo and small team productions. 33% lighter than VENICE 2, more power efficient and supporting CFexpress media – it’s not just Sony's smallest full-frame CineAlta camera, in many ways it’s our most technically advanced. Expect uncompromising image quality wherever you are, whatever the size of your crew.
