Fujinon unveils XA50X9.5B ESM HD telephoto lens
Fujinon introduced the XA50X9.5B ESM HD telephoto lens designed to work with ENG-style 2/3in HD cameras at the NAB Show in Las Vegas last week.
The XA50X9.5B ESM is well-suited for regional, minor league and collegiate sports coverage, as well as houses of worship, corporate events and other venues requiring longer focal-length lenses. The 45lb lens features an integral camera supporter that requires no additional camera lens support.
The XA50X9.5B ESM has 50x magnification and a 9.5mm-475mm focal length, which can provide a tight shot at 100ft. A remote-control 2x extender is standard. The maximum relative aperture is 1.7 from 9.5mm to 311mm and only 2.6 at 475mm. The minimum object distance is 9.8ft from the front of the lens. The new lens features Fujinon’s Digi Power digital servo control system.
