-Covering focal lengths from a best-in-class 8mm in wide angle to 1000mm in ultra telephoto-Capturing dynamic high-quality video in live coverage of sporting and music events
Tokyo, November 13, 2019 - FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) is pleased to announce the launch of the FUJINON UA125×8BESM (UA125×8), a 4K-compatible broadcast lens with the world's highest*zoom of 125×, in February 2020.
The UA125×8 is a box-type broadcast lens that covers focal length ranges from a best-in-class wide-angle**of 8mm to a super-telephoto of 1000mm. It uses the company's proprietary optical technologies to achieve vivid color reproduction and high contrast, producing video with rich gradation using HDR (high dynamic range), which makes it a perfect choice for live coverage of sporting and music events.
The penetration of 4K-compatible large-screen television in recent years has increased opportunities for enjoying high-definition 4K video. Amidst accelerated introduction of 4K-compatible video-recording equipment, there is a growing need at the video production frontline for high-magnification zoom lens capable of capturing dynamic close-up video of a distant subject in 4K quality.
The UA125×8 can record powerful high-quality video thanks to its world's highest 125× magnification zoom and optical performance that supports 4K video. The lens has the focal lengths of up to 1000mm on the telephoto end to capture a decisive moment of athletes far away or facial expressions and gestures of artists on stage in live concert. Having the world's highest wide-angle focal lengths of up to 8mm means the lens can also record video showing an entire sporting or live music venue. The proprietary optical technologies make vivid color reproduction and high contrast as well as rich gradation using the HDR. The integration of high-performance optical image stabilization mechanism keeps camera steady.
Fujifilm will be showcasing this product in the 'Inter BEE 2019' international broadcast equipment exhibition at Makuhari Messe in Japan from November 13 to 15, 2019.
FUJINON lenses are known for advanced descriptive performance, contributing to the evolution of imaging through their use in the production of TV programs, movies and commercials across the world. Fujifilm will continue to tap into its optical, high precision forming and assembling technologies that have been nurtured over many years to develop and supply innovative products that address the diversifying needs of broadcast production.
