Unparalleled flexibility with uncompromised image quality:

The VENICE Extension System (CBK-3610XS) enables cabled separation of the VENICE camera body and image sensor block by up to 5.5m with no degradation in image quality.

The Extension System also has an HD-SDI output and a 24V output for powering accessories such as lens servo motors and monitoring. Multiple screw holes on all surfaces make it easy to affix additional accessories and fit with a wide variety of rigs. The Extension System is fully compatible with all existing and future VENICE cameras upgraded to V3 or higher firmware.

Enhanced mobility and maneuverability:

Separation of the camera body and image sensor block by up to 5.5m enables exceptional flexibility when filming with gimbals, handheld, in helicopter/underwater housings, with custom rigs such as for 3D/VR contents and shooting scenes in confined spaces such as vehicles. The separated image block is just 1.9 kg (4lb) with PL mount and 1.4kg (3lb) with E-mount for the utmost shooting flexibility.

Uncompromised image quality:

When shooting with CBK-3610XS there’s no degradation in image quality. Whether shooting with a standard 2.7m separation or using the extension cable for a maximum 5.5m separation, you can be sure the image quality is the same as shooting with VENICE in standard configuration.

CBK-3610XS preserves full use of the advanced features VENICE offers such as its built-in 8-step glass ND filter system, Dual Base ISO and more.
