Wayne, N.J.? FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Optical Devices Division announces the first deliveries of its PL 19-90 Cabrio ZK4.7×19 lens to video rental companies SIM Digital and AbelCine. The Cabrio lens was first introduced at NAB 2012 and is part of the company?s PREMIER PL Mount Zoom family. The lightweight and compact ZK4.7×19 features a first for cine-style lenses ? an exclusive detachable servo drive unit that makes it suitable for use as a standard Cine PL lens or as an ENG-Style lens.
Toronto-based SIM Digital ordered 14 Cabrio lenses post-NAB, and received their first shipment in August. A long timeFUJINON lens user, SIM Digital has been acquiring lenses from the company for 30 years and owns hundreds of them.
?One of the features we love about the Cabrio 19-90 lens is the flexibility it offers,? said Rob Sim, Founder & President of SIM Digital. ?The focal length of the lens and the ability to use it in an ENG scenario is ideal for shooting episodic television, feature films, and other multiple camera environments. It offers great speed for a zoom lens. We?ve received eight Cabrio lenses so far, which were immediately rented and have been continually used without any issues. There?s been a lot of interest in the lenses, and we anticipate them to be utilized for many upcoming projects.?
