Fujifilm Launches Fujinon 46× Portable Zoom Lens for 4K video production

Fujifilm has announced the scheduled release date for their Fujinon UA46x9.5 portable lens, first announced at the 2018 NAB Show. The 46:1 zoom is designed for 4K video production or to support HD broadcast cameras.

Fujifilm’s new Fujinon UA46×9.5 BERD portable broadcast zoom lens with a B4 mount lens for 2/3in sensors covers a focal length from 9.5mm to a high magnification of 437mm.

The optical design technology suppresses colour aberrations to the minimum. The improved light transmittance delivers vivid colour reproduction and high contrast, necessary for High Dynamic Range (HDR) productions. Furthermore, it provides a stable and accurate shooting environment due to a newly developed high-performanceanti-vibration mechanism and drive unit. This provides a great image in support of creating 4K sports broadcasts, nature documentaries, news coverage and other 4K video applications. In addition, it supports a variety of production requirements when combined with an HD broadcast camera.

The Fujinon UA46×9.5 lens is scheduled for release in January 2019.

Fujifilm is also planning to further expand the lineup of their broadcast portable lenses for 4K video production with the introduction of the Fujinon UA46x13.5BERDtele-zoom scheduled to be released in early 2019. It features the same 46x zoom ratio as the “UA46x9.5” and covers a focal length from 13.5mm to 621mm.
