Expanding the Fujinon 4K lens line-up to eight models catering to the various needs of 4K video, the UA24X7 reportedly makes it possible to shoot ultra high-definition, realistic video for live sport broadcasting and press coverage.
Fujifilm Corporation’s President, Kenji Sukeno, announced the release of the new “Fujinon UA24x7.8BERD,” (“UA24x7.8”) reportedly achieving the world’s smallest (total length approximately 220.5mm) and lightest (approximately 1.98kg) broadcast lens supporting 4K. The lens is scheduled for release in January 2018.
The official release states that despite having a compact body, the “UA24x7.8” features a 24x high magnification zoom, covering a focal length from the wide angle of 7.8mm to 187mm. This portable zoom lens reportedly exhibits both high mobility as well as operability.
The addition of this product expands the Fujifilm’s 4K broadcast lens line-up to eight models in total, catering to the various needs for 4K video production. The “UA24x7.8” will be exhibited at IBC 2017, along with the full range of Fujinon Ultra HD 4K broadcast lenses, the range of high-end PL-Mount cinema lenses, and the new MK Series of Cine lenses that reportedly caters to independent and emerging film-makers.
