At the Bench: The Modularity of the Sony VENICE

I recently had a chance to work with one of our camera service technicians to take a closer look at all of the field-serviceable aspects of Sony's popular VENICE full format (full frame) cinema camera.

In the above video, we take a look at common tasks such as removing the PL-mount "shroud" on the VENICE, exposing the locking E-mount behind it, as well as other aspects of the camera's modularity and flexibility. Though AbelCine is a factory-trained and authorized Sony Certified Professional Repair Facility, performing all levels of maintenance and repair including warranty service, what's shown in the video is all fair game for owner/operators, rental technicians, and other equipment managers as far as preparing the camera to work or performing routine maintenance and cleaning. Check out the video above to see how to "field strip" a VENICE.
