Mumford Video Maintains Clear Path to HD with Fujinon HD LensHA22X7.8 ERM/ERD HDTV ENG/EFP lens (March 20, 2006)
Bill Mumford, of Mumford Video Productions (MVP) has been a freelance videographer for seventeen years, and for virtually the entire time his lenses of choice have been Fujinon. As a veteran, he knows that shortly hell need to upgrade to an HDTV camera, but two things have caused him to wait. One is the cost of HD, but a greater concern is that he believes there are still format issues to be resolved.
For years one of Mumfords main clients has been CBS, and he shoots significant footage for the news magazine series ?48 Hours. His other clients include ABC and ESPN.
A friend suggested he try a different lens and Mumford switched to a high definition lens from Fujinon, the HA22X7.8 ERM/ERD HDTV ENG/EFP lens.
The Fujinon HA22X7.8 ERM/ERD HDTV ENG/EFP lens is a portable HD lens that can cover all the shooting areas from telephoto to wide angle with 21-zoom ratio and the focal length from 7.8 mm at wide end to 172 mm at telephoto end. The adoption of the newly developed inner focus mechanism as well as low-dispersion, high-reflection, lightweight glass has reduced the mass to 1.78 kg (standard type) which is equivalent to that of existing portable lenses. This has allowed the lens to provide a high degree of operability.
Fujinon is a major manufacturer and distributor of optics and lens assemblies for the broadcast, digital cinema, and industrial markets. The company's line of television zoom lenses are used in virtually every segment of the broadcast industry, including electronic newsgathering, studio and field production, and high definition television.
