Pyser-SGI gains Fujinon lens

UK/Ireland distributor Pyser-SGI has obtained the new PL 19-90 Cabrio (ZK4.7×19) zoom lens from Fujinon. “The new ZK4.7×19 – introduced only recently at this year’s NAB – is proving a real winner. We have already sold them to high-end rental companies, and are in the process of dealing with further orders,” said Paul Goodwin, Pyser-SGI’s divisional head, Broadcast and CCTV Products. “All the launch stock ordered for the Fujinon operation in the USA sold out at NAB, and other worldwide orders are being taken for months ahead. This is probably the most successful launch of a new lens in Fujinon’s long and impressive history!” Also featured in the ZK4.7×19 lens is flange focal distance adjustment, and macro function, and it is also LDS (Lens Data System) and /i metadata compatible. With the detachable servo drive removed the lens accepts industry standard cine motors and matte boxes. Moreover, the ZK4.7×19 offers all the lens data output required for cine style operation, with the LDS and /i metadata compatibility proving of great benefit when the position information data of zoom, iris and focus needs to be recorded for computer animation and other uses. The digital servo on the lens has 16-bit encoding; so extreme accuracy of the data output is assured. The ZK4.7×19 covers up to a 31.5 mm sensor size on a digital cine style camera to ensure optimal full-frame resolution. Another design feature on the new lens is the nine-blade iris, helping create the most natural looking images possible. The long focal range of the lens is from 19 up to 90 mm, and the weight is 2.7 kg. Barrel markings on ZK4.7×19 are luminous for operation in dark conditions, and distances are given in either field-selectable feet or metres.
