DEFINITION’S 4K CAMERA LIST

SONY VENICE BASED ON:

Hollywood actor, Rob Lowe, is the star in Wild Bill , playing the new chief constable of the East Lincolnshire Police. But another star of the show is the Sony Venice. Second-block DOP, Baz Irvine, hadn’t shot with the Venice previously, but ended up loving it. “It’s ergonomic and it’s got a great interface that I found really user-friendly. It also has a native ISO, and this gave me the ability to rate it at 2500 ISO and shoot day exteriors as the light was about to go,” he says. To achieve the “heightened realism” of the show, the team shot in 6K. “Our DIT, Peter Marsden, shot the Sony Venice up at 6K, which was a higher resolution than we needed, but it was great to take advantage of the whole sensor – and actually, the decision to shoot on the Venice at 6K with the Zeiss Supreme lenses created a large format filmic image which, for me, was the biggest photographic decision that left an imprint on the series,” adds Irvine. To get the look for ITV’s drama, Wild Bill, DOP Baz Irvine shot on the Sony Venice at 6K DRAMA
