News Image
The Optical Devices Division of FUJIFILM North America will be displaying its range of lenses at this year's NAB Show, running April 13-16 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

The entire range of FUJINON Premier PL 4K+ cine lenses and the Cabrio cine/ENG-Style lens series will be on hand. The Premier PL 4K+ Series features the fastest T speeds available in a family of zooms, with colour-matched 4K and beyond optical performance. The entire range of Premier PL 4K+ cine lenses will be in the booth. The 14.5-45mm T2.0, 18-85mm T2.0, 24-180mm T2.6, and 75-400mm T2.8-T3.8 will all be on display. All four PL Mount zooms are similar in size and weight, and uniform gear placement and front barrel diameters (136mm).

"We're extremely excited about the growth of the Cine-Style market," said Thom Calabro, director of Marketing and Product Development for the Optical Division of FUJIFILM. "From high-end theatrical releases to TV and local commercial production, many are now shot with PL mount lenses for 4K and 2K resolution. Our Premier PL 4K+ and Cabrio cine-style lenses are currently very busy on a wide range of projects."

The latest addition to its series of cine zooms – the FUJINON Premier PL 25-300mm Cabrio – will be on hand, along with the rest of the Cabrio series at NAB. Equipped with a 35mm PL mount, the PL 25-300mm boasts a high zoom ratio covering the focal length of 25mm to 300mm. The PL 25-300mm supports an optional, detachable servo drive for electric zooming, focusing and iris. Mounting the unit enables remote control of zoom, focus, and iris adjustment.

FUJINON's Cabrio series includes: the new PL 25-300mm, PL 19-90 , PL 85-300, and PL 14-28mm . The PL 19-90, PL 85-300, and PL 14-28 Cabrio feature detachable servo drive units. The PL 25-300 servo is optional making them suitable for use as a standard PL lens or as an ENG-style lens. They can be controlled using cinema industry standard wireless controllers as well as existing FUJINON wired and wireless units.

The zooms support Lens Data System (LDS) and /i Technology metadata formats and can be controlled using cinema industry standard wireless controllers as well as existing FUJINON wired and wireless units.

ENG lenses will range from the low-cost XT17sx4.5BMD 1/3-inch lens for ENG and teleconferencing applications up to the HA42x13.5BERD Premier Series Stabilized Super Telephoto lens for large venues and sporting events. The XT17sx4.5BMD lens features full remote control, for videoconferencing, weather cams, educational, and studio robotic applications. The HA42x has full servo studio control, OS-Tech Optical Stabilization, and Quick Zoom.

Field lenses will include the FUJINON XA55x9.5BESM 2/3-inch zoom, the XA77x9.5BESM telephoto field lens, and the XA99x8.4 ultra-wide field production lens.

The XA99x8.4 offers a zoom range of 99x, a focal length of 8.4 to 832mm, and MOD of 2.9m and features FUJINON's image stabilisation technology. High-resolution 16-bit encoders are standard, making it suitable to virtual, robotic, and digital signage, among other applications.

The XA55x9.5 HDTV Telephoto Box Style lens is designed for large venues that require tight shots from long distances. This lens is available with a built-in lens support bracket for mounting on an ENG-style camera. Also built-in to the XA55x is optical image stabilisation.

The XA77x9.5 telephoto field lens also comes standard with image stabilisation. An anti-fogging design minimizes lens fogging and reduces downtime due to moisture. It features EBC coating to reduce ghosts and flare, and increases light transmission. From full servo to full manual, an assortment of operator controls is available. Full remote control via RS-232 serial data port is possible and 16-bit encoder output is standard for virtual applications.
