Fujifilm Launches FUJINON UA107x8.4BESM AF Broadcast Lens



Fujifilm Corporation is pleased to announce the launch of the FUJINON UA107x8.4BESM AF (UA107x8.4 AF), the world’s first 4K compatible broadcast lens that incorporates the AF function, in March 2020.

The UA107x8.4 AF is a box-type broadcast lens that delivers outstanding capability for tracking a moving subject and a fast and accurate auto-focus with AF speed as fast as 0.5 seconds. The lens’s ultra-high 107 x zoom ratio covering focal lengths from 8.4mm to 900mm and the use of a unique optical image stabilization mechanism allow users to accurately capture a distant moving subject and produce premium-quality video with minimal camera shake in live coverage of sporting or music events.

The UA107x8.4 AF is an epoch-making product that brings innovation to video production with its capability to record high-quality 4K video with ease of use and comfort.

Highlights of the UA107x8.4 AF:

  •  The UA107x8.4 AF uses a phase-detection AF sensor and its dedicated algorithm, developed with technologies that Fujifilm has fostered with its X and GFX Series of mirrorless digital cameras. The fast and accurate autofocus with AF speed as fast as 0.5 seconds gives the lens an outstanding subject-tracking performance. The advanced AF performance becomes evident when the users see the clarity of video in slow-motion replay, which tends to highlight focusing accuracy.
  •  The lens achieves a 107x zoom ratio covering focal lengths from 8.4mm in wide angle and 900mm in ultra-telephoto, and is equipped with a unique optical image stabilization mechanism, making it impossible to accurately capture a distant moving subject and still produce stable video with minimal motion blur.
  •  The use of cutting-edge optical technology delivers vivid color reproduction and high contrast, creating rich tonal gradation based on high dynamic range (HDR).
