Event Summary

Sony DMPC, Pinewood Studio, Iver Heath, SL0 0NH



Event Overview
This event will enable you to be one of the first in the UK to get up close and personal with Sony’s new BURANO camera that took the industry by storm at IBC. Try out this incredible camera for yourself and understand the benefits by talking directly to experienced Cinematographer Alister Chapman.

Seeing is believing
The camera has a 8K Full Frame sensor with Autofocus capability, 16 stops of DR and Dual Base ISO and in-body stabilization for E-mount and PL lenses. This camera is well positioned to take the industry by storm. However, it's the pictures that count and you can only judge that by seeing it for yourself.

Held in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere you can chat with other attendees to understand if this camera fits your requirements and what they think about the competition. This event will equip you with the practical knowledge and hands-on experience to know whether investing in this camera is worth it, which accessories are best and which to avoid.

The day is split into two sessions each starting with a short presentation from experienced Cinematographer Alister Chapman followed by a Q&A session with plenty of time for you to get your hands on the kit. 

You will leave this session with:
  • A clear understanding of how the BURANO compares against the competition
  • Advice on the benefits of the workflow and the flexibility it offers
  • Hands-on experience of using the BURANO with appropriate cine lenses and accessories
Who should attend:
This event is suitable for anyone who is interested in seeing how Sony’s new BURANO camera performs and how it compares against the competition.
