Fujinon Announces Optical Stablizer For Telephoto LensesNew TS-P58A eliminates vibration and image shifting when shooting with high-magnification lenses (April 25, 2005)
At NAB 2005, Fujinon introduced its latest external optical stabilization system, the TS-P58A. Providing an anti-vibration range of up to 20% of picture height, the TS-P58A utilizes the companys renowned OS-TECH image stabilization technology to deliver steady shots and keep after-shaking to a minimum when shooting with high-magnification lenses. It is designed for the full range of Fujinons HD and SD ENG telephoto lenses.
The TS-P58A utilizes Fujinons OS-TECH technology to eliminate unwanted vibration and image shifting caused by even the most subtle motion, such as an operators heartbeat or slight support-platform movements. It employs an optical shift system with a vibration detection sensor that compensates for shifting light rays that occur when an image vibrates. Its image stabilization ability immediately improves the quality of extreme close-ups taken during windy or otherwise unstable conditions.
?With the TS-P58A, Fujinon provides complete insurance against unwanted picture shaking and vibration when shooting with telephoto lenses, said Dave Waddell, Marketing Manager, Fujinon. ?The adapter increases the lens magnification by 1.25 times, making extreme close-up shots possible with shorter-focal-length lenses. The ability to use the TS-P58A with the shorter-focal-length lenses opens up new applications for the add-on stabilizer.
The TS-P58A fits ?sandwich-style between the camera and lens. The anti-vibration function can be activated from the control-setting switch near the operators hand. It can provide image compensation both vertically and horizontally.
The TS-P58A optical stabilized technology adaptor measures 58mm (length) x 120mm (width) x 144mm (height) and weighs approximately 1.0 kg. It is adaptable to all Fujinon ENG-style lenses, including: the HA13x4.5, HA18x7.6, HA22x7.8, HA22x7.3, HA25x16.5, HA25x11.5, HA36x10.5, HA42x9.7, HA42x13.5, A13x4.5, A18x7.6, A22x7.8, A36x10.5, A36x14.5, A42x9.7, and A42x13.5. The unit fits on a 2/3-inch B-type Bayonet mount.
