Sony BURANO 8K Camera


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 our 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.
Smarter Shooting

BURANO makes shooting highest quality 8K simpler than you can imagine. The world’s first PL mount compatible camera with a built-in stabilisation system*. A ground-breaking combination of our unique electronic variable ND filter system with in-body image stabilisation (IBIS) in a full-frame PL and E-mount cinema




Full-Frame 8.6K Sensor

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.

Multiple Image Scan Modes

BURANO supports 16:9 and 17:9 readouts in full-frame (8.6K) and Super 35mm (5.8K). Image scan modes include full-frame and Super35 as well as finely optimised down sampled and high-speed modes such as 6K 60p (FF crop), 5.8K 60p (S35), and 4K 120p (S35 crop*) catering for a wide range of production requirements.

* Only 17:9 in Super 35 Cropped (S35c) mode

X-OCN LT recording mode.

* For some lenses, there may be an upper limit on the frame rate, depending on the combination with the recording format.

16 Stop Latitude

With a wide latitude of 16 stops*, BURANO captures beautiful, low-noise images under almost any lighting conditions. The camera’s wide dynamic range captures everything from highlights to shadows expertly with superb colour rendition, giving operators maximum flexibility in colour grading.

* S-Log3 shooting. Sony measurements.

Wide Colour Gamut

BURANO features Sony’s signature S-Gamut/S-Gamut.Cine wide colour space that, as with the VENICE 2, covers a gamut exceeding BT.2020 and DCI-P3. S-Log3 and X-OCN also dramatically enhances creative flexibility in post-production. As BURANO offers the same colour accuracy as VENICE 2 it’s easy to use both cameras together for a seamless and efficient post-production workflow.

Dual Base ISO

Cinematographers worldwide love VENICE 2’s ability to switch the sensor’s sensitivity to capture clean images even in low light conditions. BURANO supports the same Dual Base ISO 800 and 3200 as VENICE 2. This means clear images with low noise whether shooting in a brightly lit environments (ISO 800) or in challenging dimly lit scenarios (ISO 3200). With BURANO, it’s possibly to shoot amazing imagery with nothing more than candlelight.

Internal 16-bit X-OCN LT and XAVC H recording

Despite its compact dimensions, BURANO offers internal recording of X-OCN LT* as well as our new XAVC H and proven industry standard XAVC-I format. X-OCN is Sony’s compressed RAW format that records everything that the 8.6K sensor can capture in a broad latitude 16-bit scene linear file full of rich tonal gradation. X-OCN LT’s high efficiency reduces storage requirements and accelerates file transfer times for 8K content for a post-production workflow that’s comparable to a 4K project.

BURANO also features 10-bit S-Log3 with XAVC H-I HQ recording at 1200 Mbps and XAVC H-I SQ recording at 800 Mbps for 8K30p image quality. This enables even great data savings and faster post-production workflow.

* Not compatible with X-OCN XT and X-OCN ST recording formats

New in-camera Looks for Ready-to-Use Footage

BURANO has four new looks – Warm, Cool, Vintage and Teal and Orange – to choose between alongside the established s709 and 709 (800) looks in Cine EI mode. Creatively tuned to suit typical shooting scenarios, they give the operator a choice of distinctive, engaging looks at the touch of a button. Moreover, LUT data from a shoot can be embedded in those clips’ metadata for an efficient colour workflow.

s709: Kodak 2383-like natural tones and colours

s709(800): Standard 709 tone curve for accurate colour reproduction*

BURANO application image showing Teal and Orange Look

Teal and Orange

A modern, colourful, contrasty reformulation of the classic film look. With a strong separation between cool backgrounds and warm skin tones, it’s an ideal look for productions with a focus on human subjects.

BURANO application image showing Warm Look


A soft, gentle look with amber highlights, and flattering for skin.

BURANO application image showing Cool Look


Evokes the chill of a shadow, and the blue of twilight – ideal for midnight blue or the coolness of a city at dawn.

BURANO application image showing Vintage Look


Transports the camera’s high resolution cinema quality into a previous era. The look applies a film-like bleach bypass and faded, pale sepia effect.

These looks will be available as free downloads for on-set monitoring and post-production.

17 or 33 point 3D LUT files in CUBE (.cube) format can be imported. LUT files with other lattice sizes can be used after conversion in Catalyst Browse/Prepare.
