Water Productions puts Fujinon HD lens, Panasonic Varicam to the test
Water Productions uses its Fujinon HA18x7.6BERM HD ENG/EFP lens and Varicam under extreme weather conditions, like the snowy, cold setting for “Sledsense,” which airs on the Outdoor Channel 2 HD.
A little more than a year ago Water Productions, a Canadian sports television production company, made significant high-definition equipment upgrades, and since that time has put the new gear to the test in extreme weather conditions.
One day, the company has buried its new Fujinon HA18x7.6BERM HD ENG/EFP lens fitted to a Panasonic Varicam in the snow. The next it has hung the equipment from boats. Miraculously, it has continued to work.
Applied Electronics, a reseller based in Toronto, sold Water Productions the Fujinon HA18x7.6BERM lens. The lens has a long focal length (137mm, 274 with a 2X extender) and a wide angle of view (64.5 degrees at 7.6mm).
