Fujinon rolls out lenses for 1/2in HD cameras
At IBC2006, Fujinon introduced two new lenses designed for 1/2in HD cameras — the HSs18x5.5BERM-D38 and HSs18x5.5BERD-D38 HD.
Both lenses feature an 18x zoom range and a wide angle of 5.5mm, making them well suited for production or news applications. The HSs18x5.5BERD-D38 features a servozoom and focus.
With a focal length range of 5.5 mm to 100mm (11-200 with 2X) and a wide angle of view (64 degrees at 5.5mm), the new lenses provide crisp, clear pictures under all operating conditions.
Designed to enhance the performance of the newest 1/2in ENG-style cameras, the lenses feature an 18x zoom ratio, a maximum relative aperture of 1.8 at 100mm and an M.O.D. of 0.6m from the front of the lens. Users have the option of adding Fujinon lens controllers and wide-angle or telephoto adapters. Both lenses come complete with Fujinon’s Inner Focus technology to minimize lens breathing and feature Fujinon’s “GO” technology to minimize chromatic aberration and improve contrast and edge sharpness.
