Sony Rebrands Top End Cameras As Cinema Line

Targeting digital cinema, the Cinema Line embraces existing cameras Venice, for features, and FX9, for docs.

Sony will be releasing the next addition to the range, the FX6, by the end of 2020.

Sony says, each of the Cinema Line cameras will evolve with user feedback: The FX9 Version 3 upgrade, available in 2021, will see the addition of the S700PTP allowing remote control of Sony’s camera, a Centre Scan mode for Super 16mm lens and B4 Lens support with its adaptor as well as other features. In parallel, this November, the Venice camera will see a couple of additional features in its V6.0 upgrade aimed at improving its operability for broadcast and live.

“With Cinema Line, we’re tapping into our DNA from both the film industry and digital imaging prosumer market and combining it to develop new creative tools,” says Anthony Kable, Content Creation Group Manager, Sony Australia. “This line of products will enable creators to push their creative boundaries further and capture the emotion in each and every frame.”
