Fujinon announced two new Box Lenses and a new broadcast portable zoom. Two of these branded as 8K capable. But, this announcement was not only about the glass hardware. FUJINON also announced a handful of beneficial features around image back focus and even illumination across the entire picture. All of these lenses are due to be released in the summer of 2020 and the fall of 2020. Let’s head to the 8K lenses to lead off.
The FUJINON HP66X15.2ESM (HP66X15.2) box lens reaches the world’s longest 8K focal length of 1,000mm while also featuring the world’s highest zoom magnification of 66×1. The FUJINON HP12X7.6ERD (HP12X7.6) is a portable lens covering a range of 7.6mm to 91mm, the world’s widest 8K angle of view at 93.3 degrees.
The HP66X15.2 and HP12X7.6 ultra-high-definition (UHD) lenses both feature bayonet mounts targeting three 1.25″ sensors for ultra-high 8K resolution. Fujifilm’s unique multi-layer coating (High Transmittance Electron Beam Coating) makes it possible for these lenses to deliver vivid color as well as high dynamic range (HDR)-based rich tonal gradation. In addition to using aspherical and fluorite elements to effectively control various types of aberration, both lenses have a nine-blade aperture for natural bokeh and are equipped with 16-bit encoders.
The HP66X15.2 also features the latest high-performance optical image stabilization mechanism to make 8K production at long focal lengths rock steady. Both lenses can be used with the newest generation of focus accessories to achieve the advanced level of focusing precision that 8K demands.
Then FUJINON announced the UA125X8BESM (UA125X8), a 4K-compatible broadcast lens with the world’s highest zoom ratio of 125X.
The UA125X8 box lens covers a focal length from the wide-angle of 8mm~1000mm, with an F1.7 aperture. It is now the longest and widest 4K field lens for Ultra HD applications in the FUJINON UA series, designed for unparalleled 4K performance imaging from today’s new 4K 2/3″ cameras.
