Fujifilm launches new 4k lens and zoom rate demand unit
Fujifilm has launched the Fujifilm UA107x8.4, a 4K-compatible broadcast lens equipped with a new image-stabilisation mechanism and customisation capabilities, and the zoom rate demand unit Fujinon ERD-50A, featuring a large LCD panel.
The UA107x8.4 is a 107x zoom model with a newly redesigned image-stabilisation mechanism that makes 4K video-shooting that bit easier when combined with the ERD-50A.
With the use of 4K-compatible video equipment spreading rapidly in a diverse range of video productions, Fujifilm chose to release a 4K-compatible broadcast lens and has since expanded the line-up of such lenses and accessories to facilitate users.
The new UA107x8.4 offers an ultra-high 107x magnification zoom, covering the focal length range from 8.4 mm to 900 mm. The lens can correct image blurs caused by winds or shaking of the footing without any time lag, providing added stability in video shooting.
The ERD-50A features a highly visible LCD panel and a four-way operation button for intuitive and uncomplicated operability. When combined with the UA107x8.4, the unit allows users to choose the zoom curve optimum to a given shooting scene out of 200 options. The unit also carries an AUX button, to which a frequently used function can be assigned, and comes with a display for checking shooting settings, including functions assigned to the AUX button and the on/off status of image stabilisation whilst shooting video.
The two products will be released in late November 2021.
