Chesapeake Camera adds Fujinon HD ENG-style lenses
March 7, 2006
Chesapeake Camera has become the first production rental company in the Northeast to purchase Fujinon ENG-style lenses with Precision Focus Assist technology.
The Fujinon wide angle HA22X7.3BRD HD lens is one of two models Chesapeake Camera has added.
The gear includes Fujinon’s HA13X4.5BRD and HA22X7.3BRD wide-angle HD lenses. Precision Focus Assist is a built-in feature that addresses precise focus issues in HDTV production stemming from the format’s shallow depth of focus and the lack of size and resolution in camera viewfinders. The rental company is supplying the lenses to its documentary and field production clientele.
Using Precision Focus Assist, a selectable area of the video image is sampled as the focus point. The camera operator can adjust the user selectable point with a roller-ball type of controller, similar to a computer mouse, to position the focus point.
