New Fujinon HA16x6.3ERM HD ENG/EFP Lens to Debut at NAB 2006

First and only 2/3-inch HD lens to feature telephoto and wide angle capabilities in a single package (February 14, 2006)

For producers and DPs looking for convenience, flexibility and versatility, Fujinon has a remarkable new entry in its industry-leading line of 2/3-inch HD ENG/EFP lenses that delivers a lot of production power in a small package. To be introduced during NAB 2006 (Booth SU149), the HA16X6.3ERM is the first lens to combine wide angle and high magnification (16X zoom ratio), enabling production crews to carry just one lens for a range of shooting environments. It is ideal for news, any handheld production, and in small studios for a broad range of applications.

The HA16X6.3ERM has a wide angle of 6.3mm and a telephoto focal length of 202mm with the 2X extender. The minimum focusing distance has been reduced to 0.4 meters, and the new lens includes Fujinon's exclusive DigiPower servo system for precise control of zoom functions.

?This is the first lens to combine wide angle with such a high (16X) magnification, said Dave Waddell, Marketing Manager, Fujinons Broadcast and Communications Product Division. ?This allows news and production shooters to carry just one lens for all kinds of shooting. Adding the wider angle to this lens makes it an outstanding choice for news and production. It will change the way most news crews operate by giving them a complete lens (wide and telephoto) in one package.

When used with HD/SD switchable cameras, the HA16X6.3ERM wide angle increases to 7.6mm in the 4:3 mode. This is the same as Fujinons standard ENG/EFP lenses so no ratio converter or wide adaptor is required.

The HA16X6.3ERM will be available in the fall.
