Fujinon introduces the newest Compact C series of Cine Style HDTV zoom lenses at NAB
Designed for documentary and major motion picture production, the HAc18x7.6-F zoom is small and lightweight, perfect for shooting on 2/3-inch HD cameras. Other lenses in the Compact C Series of Cine Style HD zoom lenses include the HAc15x7.3 and the HAc13x4.5B.
The HAc18x7.6 has a wide angle of view of 64 degrees at 7.6mm and captures images with a Minimum Object Distance of .84m from the image plane.
The HAc18x7.6-F boasts a wider angle and higher magnification (18x) than Fujinon's previous model, the HA17x7.8B-10. A maximum photometric aperture of T1.9 results in more latitude in controlling depth of field. The new lens offers focus rotation of 280 degrees for easier and more exact focusing, with little focus "breathing" -the tendency of a lens to make an image look bigger or smaller when its focus is changed. Minimal chromatic aberration and improved edge-to-edge sharpness provide excellent image quality for digital imaging.
Combined with an exceptionally long focal length of 7.6-137mm, the HAc18x7.6 has a wide angle of view of 64 degrees at 7.6mm and captures images with a Minimum Object Distance of .84m from the image plane.
The HAc18x7.6 also features colored scales with focus, zoom and iris settings etched on both sides of the lens barrel for easy reading. Scales are available in feet (HAc18x7.6-F) or meters (HAc18x7.6-M).
The HAc18x7.6 is equipped with Fujinon's exclusive GO-Technology, which enables the optimization of all optical components in the composition of the lens.
