Fujinon to debut latest precision focus assist system for HD at NAB2005
Fujinon’s Precision Focus Assist is a built-in feature that addresses precise focus issues in HDTV production stemming from the format’s shallow depth of focus.
Fujinon will introduce an expanded lineup of focus systems designed to improve the quality of HDTV image capture in field and studio applications at NAB2005.
The latest Fujinon Precision Focus Assist system will be available on the company’s XA101x8.9BESM HD zoom, HA22X7.3BRD HD EFP lens and the HA13x4.5BRD-S28K HD wide-angle lens. Precision Focus Assist is a built-in feature that addresses precise focus issues in HDTV production stemming from the format’s shallow depth of focus and the lack of size and resolution in camera viewfinders.
This is not an auto focus system, but a focus assist that precisely adjusts the lens for optimum focus. Using this system, a selectable area of the video image is sampled as the focus point. The camera operator can adjust the user selectable point with a roller-ball type of controller, similar to a computer mouse, to position the focus point. The camera operator can then select manual or automatic focus assist.
