The company’s unique multi-layer coating helps achieve rich tonal gradation to produce 4K video of astonishing quality. These lenses can be mounted on an HD-compatible broadcast camera.

Main Features:

Compact design for advanced portability

  • The two compact lenses adopted Fujifilm’s unique optical design, with the UA18x7.6 weighing at 1.74kg and measuring 204mm long and the UA23X7.6 weighing 1.95kg and measuring 221.4mm long.
  • They can be paired with a 4K camcorder to reduce the physical strain of videographers who carry their equipment on the shoulder.

Unique optical technology for excellent sharpness and richness

  • The lenses are ED and fluorite elements to effectively control various types of aberration, achieving outstanding image sharpness. The company’s HT-EBC (High Transmittance Electron Beam Coating) multi-layer coating boosts the rate of light transmittance, delivering rich tonal gradation.
  • These lenses can be mounted on an HD-compatible broadcast camera.

Natural bokeh achieved with nine-blade diaphragm

  • The use of nine-blade diaphragm achieves an aperture shape closer to a perfect circle. This creates beautiful soft lights and natural bokeh into the video expressions.

Addition of two lenses with different zoom magnifications

  • These lenses use the “multi-group zooming” method that moves multiple lens groups for zooming.
