Timur Civan Relies On FUJINON PL 19-90mm Cabrio Lens

As a Director of Photography and producer with a degree in studio art and previous career as a sculptor, Timur Civan takes pride in telling an artistic story through his camera work.

His production company Tstop Cinema LLC focuses on high-end commercial and feature film work, ranging from fashion and technology projects, to cooking, and Sesame Street promos. Over the last few years, one piece of equipment Timur has relied upon is the FUJINON PL 19-90mm Cabrio lens (ZK4.7x19.) Most recently, he used it to shoot a commercial for FILA sneakers and commercials for the Home Shopping Network (HSN).

When FUJIFILM Optical Devices introduced the Cabrio 19-90 T2.9 lens in 2012, Timur was one of its first customers. "I'd just sold my previous lens because it was expensive and was not renting well, and was in the market for a new one," he explained. "At first I just thought that the Cabrio would be a good rental item, which it definitely is. What I didn't expect was its high optical quality. Zoom lenses with such a long focal range can sometimes lack in image quality. But in this case, FUJIFILM did an amazing job with its image quality. The optics on the lens are just beautiful."

Offering the longest focal range available in a lightweight zoom, the FUJINON 19-90 Cabrio weighs in at only 2.85kg, including its servo motors. Its compactness is something that Timur particularly appreciates. One feature that Timur is surprised he finds so valuable is the detachable servo drive. The exclusive detachable servo drive unit makes the lens suitable for use as a standard PL lens or as an ENG-Style lens. For a recent Home Shopping Network (HSN) fall fashion commercial, Timur relied exclusively on his FUJINON 19-90 lens mounted on a RED EPIC DRAGON camera for the nearly 15 hours of footage he shot. "We were able to shoot through a variety of setups in the day using only the Cabrio. It saved us a lot of time and energy."
