KQED-DT shoots with Fujinon HD lenses

KQED-DT/TV, a PBS station serving Northern California, has acquired several new Fujinon HD lenses to produce its local news in HD. They include four HA27x6.5ESM studio lenses; one HA22x7.8BERM ENG-style HD lens; one HA16x6.3BERM wide angle ENG-style lens; and one HA13x4.5BERM super wide angle ENG/EFP-style lens.

KQED uses the four HA27x6.5ESM lenses on its Sony HDC-1000 multiformat HDTV studio pedestal cameras. The wider HA16x6.3BERM and HA13x4.5 ENG/EFP-style HD lenses are used in the studio in handheld applications or in the field on several Sony HDC-1500 multipurpose HD portable cameras, which have been outfitted with a “build-up” kit that supports the lenses. The HA22x7.8BERM is used on a jib or in handheld studio applications on the Sony HDC-1500 cameras.

At KQED, the new HD lenses are replacing existing SD Fujinon lenses. Prior to making a purchase decision, however, KQED’s engineers participated in a “shoot-out” of all the top HD lenses on the market, with camera operators participating in hands-on demonstrations in the studio.
