An interview from the 2023 IBC Show in Amsterdam with Daniel Listh of Sony Europe. At IBC 2023, Sony introduced the all-new BURANO features a Full Frame 8.6K sensor in a compact and lightweight design. Featuring a PL/E mount, built-in ND filters, dual base ISO, and a high dynamic range (16 stops), the Sony BURANO is the newest addition to the CineAlta line. With In-body image stabilization and advanced auto focus, the BURANO captures stunning images and weighs less than 7lbs.

Sony 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 their most technically advanced. Expect uncompromising image quality wherever you are, whatever the size of your crew.

BURANO has a large 36x24mm full-frame image sensor that delivers high-quality images and superb rendition with wide latitude and a rich colour gamut. It achieves the beautiful bokeh and dynamic wide-angle shooting that only a full-frame sensor can provide. 8K image quality with a maximum resolution of 8632 x 4856 and, through oversampling, it can output phenomenal looking 4K content.

BURANO comes with an anamorphic de-squeeze function as standard. The monitoring menu gives a choice from 1.3x/2.0x, based on the anamorphic lens’ magnification. The result can be seen on the LCD monitor display, and on external monitors at FHD resolution. The camera monitor output supports SDI or HDMI for X-OCN shooting, and HDMI for non-X-OCN content.

Sony’s new CFexpress card VPG400 allows for reliable capture at exceptional high data rates, including X-OCN LT recording in full 8K.

BURANO’s dual media slots allow relay and simultaneous recording, while versatile CFexpress Type B media are convenient for backing up and transferring data in the field. An additional SD card slot is for storing Proxy and camera setting information
