Powerful 8.6K Full-Frame Sensor

Using the widely appreciated colour science of the VENICE cameras, BURANO features an
8.6K full-frame sensor that shares most of the VENICE 2 specifications enabling it to work
alongside that camera in all types of productions. The sensor features dual base ISO of 800
and 3200 and 16 stops of latitude to produce stunning images even in the most challenging
lighting conditions.

Like all cameras in Sony’s full-frame Cinema Line, BURANO will have the ability to shoot at
full-frame, Super 35, and also features a desqueeze function for anamorphic lenses. It can
film at frame rates including up to 8K at 30 frames per second, 6K at 60 frames per second or
4K at 120 frames per second.

BURANO features a compact and lightweight body for high mobility, approximately 32mm
shorter and 1.4kg lighter than the VENICE 2 camera. BURANO is housed in a rugged
magnesium chassis, making it suitable for filming in the most challenging environments. The
camera and accessory packaging bags materials are made primarily of plant-based celluloseiv
instead of plastic as part of Sony’s efforts to be environmentally conscious. Moreover, a
moulded pulp cushion is used on the camera as the cushioning material, thus not using
expanded polystyrene.

Built In Optical Image Stabilisation

BURANO is the world’s first digital cinema camera with PL-mount to support in-body image
stabilisation. With a newly developed image stabilisation mechanism and control algorithm
that leverages the advanced image stabilisation technology cultivated in the Alpha™ series of
mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras, unwanted camera shake, such as movement from
shooting handheld or walking, can be corrected when shooting with an E-mount or PL-mount

Variable ND Filter for added control and exposure optimisation.

BURANO is equipped with an electronic variable ND filter from 0.6 to 2.1, enabling easy
adjustments in various lighting conditions. In addition, the electronic variable ND filter allows
control of the depth of field with the iris and adjusts to the optimum exposure without changing
the depth of field.

FE-mount lenses for an increased choice

More than 70 E-mount lenses can use the excellent image stabilisation function cultivated with
Alpha™, as well as Fast Hybrid AF that combines the benefits of phase detection and contrast
detection method and are also compatible with high-precision Subject Recognition AF using
AI. Using an E-mount lens further reduces the weight and size of the camera.

Updated Body Design for greater ergonomics

BURANO also includes design improvements based on feedback from the filmmaking
community. For example, all menu buttons are positioned on the camera operator’s side.
Additionally, tally lamps are placed in three locations to make it easier for the surrounding crew
to check the shooting status. The 3.5-inch multi-function LCD monitor can be used as a
viewfinder, for touch focus, or menu control. The BURANO also comes equipped with an
optional robust T-handle, viewfinder arm, two 3-pin XLR audio inputs, and a headphone
terminal (stereo minijack), convenient for solo operation.

Recording Formats for added workflow flexibility.

The BURANO can record from HD to 8K depending on the resolution, aspect ratio, and codec.
BURANO supports multiple internal recording formats, such as the new XAVC H™ for 8K,
which uses the MPEG-H HEVC/H.265 high compression efficiency codec. Other recording
formats include XAVC and X-OCN LT. X-OCN is Sony’s original compressed RAW format that
can capture information shot with 16-bit linear data, which gives filmmakers more freedom in
post for colour grading. X-OCN LT can reduce file transfer time and storage size load, making
post-production workflows more efficient than standard versions of RAW data.

BURANO is also equipped with two new CF express Type B memory card slots and supports
VPG400, which can sustain high bitrate writing of video data, including X-OCN LT 8K. Sony
will also be releasing in early 2024 new compatible CFexpress Type B memory cards, CEBG1920T (1920 GB)/ CEB-G960T (960 GB).

Versatile and Efficient Production Ecosystem

BURANO supports various log recording modes including S-Gamut3 and S-Gamut3.Cine,
which are colour spaces that cover a colour gamut exceeding BT.2020 and DCI-P3. BURANO
can reproduce the same colour as all cameras in Sony’s Cinema Line, including the VENICE
2. This allows filmmakers to match cameras within the line.
BURANO comes with four new cinematic looks; Warm, Cool, Vintage, Teal and Orange, in
addition to supporting industry standard s709 and 709 (800%) Look Up Tables (LUTs).

Furthermore, like the VENICE series amongst others, BURANO can be used for virtual
production using large screen LED displays such as Sony’s Crystal LED VERONA. The
camera also features gen-lock.

Sony will be releasing separately the GP-VR100 Grip remote control for the BURANO’s main
unit, to control the zoom lever and recording start / stop button, particularly useful in solo
shooting set ups.

BURANO will support the S700 protocol over ethernet and a 1.5x de-squeeze display function
when using anamorphic lens by summer 2024. Further updates based on user feedback and
suggestions will be rolled out in the future.

Continuous enhancement of Cinema Line in both hardware and software

Cinema Line is a series of camera products for content creators, which delivers not only the
coveted cinematographic look cultivated through extensive experience in digital cinema
production, but also the enhanced operability and reliability that meet discerning creators’
various needs. Set to continuously evolve, Cinema Line currently includes the high end
CineAlta cameras VENICE, VENICE 2, BURANO, as well as the various FX models and the
unique FR7 PTZ camera. From a software perspective, the newly launched mobile app,
Monitor & Controlvii , part of the Sony Creators’ Cloud can be used with the FX3, FX30 amongst
others. The app, designed with visual creators in mind, enables wireless video monitoring,
support for high-precision exposure determination using false colour and waveform monitors,
and intuitive focus operation of compatible cameras, on the screen of a smartphone or tablet.
BURANO will also be compatible with this app.
