MVP finds role for HD lens with SD camera
The Fujinon HA22X7.8 ERM/ERD HDTV ENG/EFP lens made an immediate difference for Bill Mumford of Mumford Video Productions.
Freelance videographer Bill Mumford of Mumford Video Productions (MVP) recently purchased a Fujinon HA22X7.8 ERM/ERD HDTV ENG/EFP lens and uses it on his own Beta SP camera during the transition phase from SD to HD production.
For years one of Mumford’s main clients has been CBS, and he shoots significant footage for the news magazine series “48 Hours.” His other clients include ABC and ESPN.
Until about a year ago, Mumford shot with his standard-definition Ikegami V55, a camera he’d come to depend on. But after the camera was stolen a year ago, Mumford wasn’t certain how to replace it. He considered a high definition camera but concluded he wasn’t ready to go HD because of the evolving formats.
He decided to simply replace his camera with another Ikegami V55 and a friend suggested he try the Fujinon HA22X7.8 ERM/ERD HDTV ENG/EFP lens. Since he plans to switch to an HD camera in the next couple of years, the move made a lot of sense, he said.
