Fujinon captures final Star Wars action

When Lucasfilm Ltd's Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith comes to cinemas this year, audiences will see the first Star Wars movie shot using Fujinon E Series digital cinema-style lenses, which brought new levels of efficiency and flexibility to filmmaker George Lucas and his crew.
The HAe3x5 (5-15 mm) and HAe10x10 (10-100mm) E Series zooms were used to capture Revenge of the Sith, the final instalment of the Star Wars saga, along with E Series prime lenses (with nine fixed focal length lenses on the set) and C Series HAc13x4.5B-10 (4.5-59mm) lenses.
Star Wars: Episode III marked the first time Fujinon lenses were used on the entire production of the film - including principal live-action photography - which continues Lucas`s groundbreaking work in the digital production of motion pictures.
Previously, Fujinon`s ‘Cine Super C’ series HA10x5B-10 (5-50 mm) zooms were used for the visual effects cinematography on 2002`s Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones, which was the first major live-action production shot entirely by digital methods. On Attack of the Clones, Fujinon lenses were used for motion control, miniatures, green screen and pick-up shots.
The development of the HAe3x5 (5-15 mm) and HAe10x10 (10-100mm) zooms used for production of Revenge of the Sith incorporated direct customer feedback, including reactions from Lucasfilm`s engineers and producers.
