FUJIFILM’s 55X Zoom For Large Venue Shooting and Lightweight Cabrio Zoom Make NAB2014 Debut

(Wayne, New Jersey–February 27, 2014) Two lenses from the Optical Devices Division of FUJIFILM North America Corporation will make their NAB debut this year – the Premier PL 14-35mm Cabrio wide-angle lens [ZK2.5×14] and the XA55x9.5 HDTV Telephoto Box Style lens. Other NAB2014 innovations from the Optical Devices Division will be announced shortly. This year also marks FUJIFILM’s 80th anniversary, and 40 years for the Optical Devices Division, formerly known as FUJINON, in the U.S. The company will exhibit in NAB Booth #C7025.

The new XA55x9.5 telephoto zoom is designed for large venues that require tight shots from long distances, such as for sports, concerts and any live events. This zoom “fills a sweet spot in our line of 2/3” studio/field lenses,” according to Thom Calabro, director of Marketing and Product Development for the Optical Division of FUJIFILM. “With a focal length from 9.5 to 535mm [or 19.0 to 1050mm with a 2x extender], it captures tight shots from long distances even in the most challenging environments.”
