The Optical Devices Division of FUJIFILM will introduce two new FUJINON handheld zooms for live sports, entertainment and field production during the NAB 2017 convention. The UA14x4.5B and UA18x5.5B are the latest handhelds in the companys Premier UA Series of 4K 2/3 lenses. The new lenses deliver edge-to-edge 4K optical quality to 2/3-inch 4K portable cameras and camcorders. The UA14x and UA18x zooms can be seen along with the complete UA Series within the companys NAB booth. These lenses join the UA13x4.5B, UA22x8B, UA80x9B, UA107x8.4B, and the new UA27x6.5B in this series. The company will exhibit in booth C7225 during NAB, which runs from April 22-27 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
 
 

“The demand for 4K-compatible broadcast equipment is spreading rapidly throughout the world for live sports and entertainment,” said Tom Fletcher, Director of Sales, Optical Devices Division of FUJIFILM. “With the recent introduction of high-quality and lightweight 4K camcorders, our latest UA Series lenses will accommodate an increasing number of videographers who shoot 4K handheld.”

The “UA14x4.5B” has an ultra-wide focal length of 4.5 to 63mm at the telephoto end and a zoom ratio of 14x, while the “UA18x5.5B” has a focal length range from 5.5mm in wide angle to 100mm in telephoto, and a zoom ratio of 18x. The unique zoom range of the “UA18x5.5B” makes this a “2-in-1” lens, offering both wide-angle and telephoto capability. Both lenses are standard with 2x extenders.

High resolution, high contrast, and high dynamic range are hallmarks of the UA Series. Aspherical elements have been treated with the latest High Transmittance Electron Beam Coating (HT-EBC) multi-layer coating for a high level of transmittance and color reproduction. Using HT-EBC in tandem with FUJIFILM’s exclusive Aspheric Technology, the lenses reduce ghosting and lens flares, while increasing the amount of light transmitted through the lens to the camera’s sensors. The latest optical simulation technology was used in the lenses’ optical design to prevent resolution degradation around the edges and control aberrations, thus achieving 4K image quality across the zoom range. An aperture shape close to that of a circle is achieved by adopting nine aperture blades, which provides a more natural bokeh.

“The superb wide angle ability of these new lenses is a result of our latest optical simulation software, which was used to model their large diameter aspherical elements,” added Fletcher. “Meanwhile, the lenses’ multi-group zoom system suppresses image distortion and maintains the 4K UHD image quality captured is consistent and accurate from center to corner - no matter how tight or wide the shot. All combined, these new handheld zooms produce clear, vibrant and optically accurate 4K images. The UA14x and UA18x are fully-featured 4K UHD lenses that shooters can use to produce 4K UHD now.”

The latest generation Servo Drive Unit has been built to support a wide range of remotely-controlled zoom, focus, and iris functions. It relies on 16-bit encoders to provide accurate two-way communications between the lens servo and the remote operator, using either RS-232 serial data or traditional analog communications.

The FUJINON UA18x and UA14x are available as of NAB 2017.
