Fujifilm Aspiring Filmmakers Award, Phase One (2024): U.S.-resident filmmakers will be invited to submit proposals on the DCP platform for three- to five- minute short films based on a creative prompt unique to each quarter in 2024. DCP community members will then be invited to rate the submissions using evaluation metrics such as story, aesthetics, character development, and more.

Three filmmakers will be selected at the end of each quarter in 2024 to receive a Fujifilm Aspiring Filmmakers Phase One Award, which will consist of a FUJIFILM digital camera and lens kit with an approximate value up to $2,500, provided by Fujifilm (total ARV of quarterly prizes is up to $7,500, $30,000 for the entire program.) Filmmakers who wish to take part are invited to make their first quarter qualifying short film submissions now. Entry and eligibility requirements and limitations apply. Quarterly deadlines, submission requirements, and complete program rules can be found on the DCP Platform. 

Fujifilm Aspiring Filmmakers Award Series Phase Two (2025): In Spring 2025, the 12 Phase One Award projects will be entered into a second creative award on the DCP platform to be rated by the DCP community. The three top rated projects from these 12 total entries will be announced as finalists, from which Fujifilm will select one project to receive a further $5,000 cash award to bring the proposal to life using the FUJIFILM digital camera and lens equipment received in Phase One.

The 2025 Phase Two Award recipient, as well as the other short films created using the FUJIFILM digital camera lens kits provided to the quarterly 2024 winners of Phase One will be eligible to be considered for promotional support of their short film creations and Fujifilm and DCP.

FUJIFILM X-H2 and X-H2S Integrations for frame.io Camera to Cloud

With the frame.io Camera to Cloud integration for FUJIFILM X-H2S and X-H2 cameras, users with the FT-XH file transmitter accessory will have the ability to use their paid Adobe Creative Cloud subscriptions – and any active internet connection – to deliver any combination of still or video files to Frame.io, directly from the camera. This will accelerate production workflows and create opportunities to remotely collaborate in near real-time by providing centralized access to still and video assets as they are being created – even across multiple users.

FUJINON Duvo 25-1000

A new category of lens, the development of which was first announced in October 2022, Duvo 25-1000 is a native PL-mount box lens that combines broadcast functionality with beautiful token, delivering a cinematic look to live, as well as scripted, productions. Duvo 25-1000 utilizes innovative optical design technology to achieve a maximum aperture of F2.8 and 40x zoom ratio.

This ultra-high zoom ration lens is compatible with the large sensors of digital cinema cameras, yet provides a brightness of F2.8 at the wide angle. Not only does it enable filming in low light environments such as indoor concerts or nighttime events, but the shallow depth-of-field creates the bokeh that delivers the highly-sought-after cinematic look.

Fujifilm Announces New Fujinon Duvo HZK25 Mount Cinema Box Lens

FUJIFILM North America Corporation announced the availability of its new, ground-breaking FUJINON Duvo HK25-1000mm F2.8-F5.0 PL Mount Cinema Box Lens (“Duvo 25-1000”). As noted in Fujifilm’s prior October 2022 development announcement, this native PL-mount cinema box lens achieves a zoom ratio of 40x and a telephoto focal length of 1000mm, the highest combination of magnification and telephoto reach available to date for large cinema censors. Fujifilm North America Corporation expects to begin shipping initial orders of Duvo 25-1000 to its customers later this week.

Duvo 25-1000 is the first in Fujifilm’s new “Duvo” series of cinema lenses. Duvo 25-1000’s ability to provide telephoto filming with high magnification makes it suitable not only for sports broadcasts and live concerts, but also for movies, commercials, and other production users.

“In actively observing and gathering feedback from professionals about the emerging world of cinema-sized imagers in live production, our customers helped us identify a very clear need for a long and fast cinema lens that can produce cinematic results in a live production environment,” said Stosh Durbacz, national sales manager, Optical Devices Division, FUJIFILM North America Corporation. “With a pedigree that hails from the highly respected FUJINON PREMIER Series, Duvo 25-1000 provides production with unmatched flexibility and reach while producing the highly sought-after cinema look to live audiences.”

Duvo 25-1000 deploys a dual-format system that supports two single sensor sizes: a large format sensor size and a traditional super 35mm sensor. Duvo 25-1000’s use of Fujifilm’s newly developed 1.5x expander shifts the focal length of the telephoto side, enabling super telephoto image capture of 1500, (1000×1.5) Duo 25-1,000 enables filming with the same field of view in both formats and produces rich image expression by taking advantage of the camera’s cinematic look.

Camera operators can operate Duvo 25-1000 in a setup specialized for live broadcasting, since existing FUJINON box lens’ focus / iris / zoom features can also be remotely controlled by connecting to compatible wireless lens controllers. Duvo 25-1000 also features Breathing Compensation Technology, ensuring the subject framing does not change during focusing, helping to ensure natural-looking images.

To maximize portability, the upper grip of Duvo 25-1000 is designed to be slightly longer than conventional box-type broadcast lenses. As a result, it can be lifted stably near the center of gravity. In addition, a new lower grip has been integrated to improve portability.

Fujifilm will exhibit Duvo 25-1000 at booth C5725 at the 2023 NAB Show, the world’s largest international broadcast equipment exhibition, to be held in Las Vegas April 15 to April 19, 2023.

Fujifilm will continue its efforts to enhance the world of cinematic image expression by expanding its lineup of lenses that employ its dual-format system to accommodate two large sensors.
