The Fuji Cabrio 4K compact zooms feature a unique and advanced detachable drive unit – a first in the light weight zoom category.
This detachable servo allows for the functionality of an ENG zoom but on a PL mount.
With the detachable drive removed, the lens is set to accept industry standard cine motors and matte boxes.
In addition, the Cabrios have all the lens data output that appeals to a Cine-style shooter.
The Sony PXW-X200 follows on from the PMW200. Featuring dual SxS memory card slots for simultaneous recordings, cache recordings, Slow & Quick function, a 3.5 inch-type QHD (960 x 540) colour LCD panel and a 17x Fujinon professional HD zoom lens with three independent rings with end stops, able to zoom from 29.3mm to 499mm (35mm equivalent).
It achieves high sensitivity and low noise recordings in Full HD XAVC Intra and XAVC Long GOP, as well as MPEG HD 422 50 Mbps MPEG HD 420 35 Mbps, MPEG IMX and DV.
The PXW-X200 also has a built-in wireless operation capability, and also offers remote control, file transfer, monitoring via smartphones and tablet devices, and streaming.
We are now the proud owners of a Canon HJ40 lens.
The HJ40x10B can extend to 770mm.
It represents the very best in optical and mechanical design and its unique optical image stabilisation systems make possible the capture of rock steady high definition imagery under the most adverse of field conditions.
High contrast is ensured by superb control of black reproduction – with optical and mechanical design innovations that substantially reduced flare, veiling glare, and any internal reflections. Similar attention to minimisation of ghost images and other highlight-related chromatic distortions caused by strong light sources on-axis and off-axis further extend the operational contrast range of the lens.
The Canon Cinema EOS system primes provide spectacular optical performance for demanding high-end productions. Featuring a compact and consistent lens design, these lenses offer consistent form factors and markings optimized for motion picture production. Sharing the same gear position, diameter and rotation angle, and front diameter-the lenses’ compatibility with third-party accessories allows crews to easily change lenses without making adjustments to the rig setup. Perfect on the EOS C300, these lenses are also compatible with all Canon EOS DSLRs.
In addition, we have an EF – FZ adaptor from MTF, enabling these lenses to be used on the Sony F55.
The Kit comprises of:
