Fujinon had a number of big announcements at NAB 2012 and Thom Calabro, Director, Marketing and Product Development, FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Optical Devices Division, took the time to tell us about the PL 19-90 Cabrio (ZK4.7×19). The item features an exclusive detachable servo drive unit, making it suitable for use as a standard PL lens or as an ENG-Style lens.
The PL 19-90 covers 31.5mm sensor size on a digital cinema style camera. While sensors on standard broadcast cameras are all the same size, sensors on digital cine cameras vary greatly. This new zoom ensures the image captured will cover large sensors for optimal, full-frame resolution. A nine-blade iris part of the design as well, creating the most natural-looking imagery possible.
