Lens announcements are heating up today.
Fujinon announcement for NAB: a new 25-300 mm joins the growing Cabrio series PL zoom lens family. Its range extends beyond the familiar 10:1 ratio — offering a 12:1 zoom in a comfortable size and weight. It is intended to be used as an all-around zoom lens for exteriors, locations, action, aerials, sports, cars, running shots, as well as interiors.
With a size and weight comparable to the Fujinon Premier 24-180, the new Fujinon Cabrio 25-300 provides a longer range of focal lengths. A detachable digital servo drive unit with Focus, Iris and Zoom motors will be an option mid-year. The lens has rear flange focal depth adjustment. Macro (close-up) capability is available standard on the lens.
All Cabrios can connect for power and data to contacts in the lens mount of many PL cameras. All Cabrio drive units connect with familiar industry FIZ wireless and wired lens control systems. Also plug and play to Fujinon Broadcast style accessories for single operator/ pedestal applications. Optional power and control cables are available. The servo handgrip detaches with 4 screws. When re-attaching, the drive is self-centering.
