Fujinon unveils compact HD studio lens
Fujinon has introduced the XA22x7BES compact HD studio lens with a focus on the growth of stations using ENG-style cameras for studio applications and those employing smaller field production units.
The XA22x7BES is a lightweight box lens with higher optical quality than standard ENG-type lenses combined with the zoom and focus performance of a larger studio lens. With a focal length starting at 7mm and ranging up to 154mm and good F-stop ramping characteristics, it is well suited for shooting in tight locations and smaller studios.
The lens incorporates a belt drive for zoom and focus, as opposed to gear-driven design, enabling very smooth and precise operation. The lens’s boxed housing virtually eliminates working noise.
The XA22x7BES has a removable shroud for easy use, and features minimal focus breathing and 14-bit control (16-bit optional) with an external port for robotics interface.
