1/2″ HD Wide Angle Lens
The Fujinon XS13x3.3BRM is a high quality 13x 1/2″ wide-angle lens designed to be used with the XDCAM HD line of Sony cameras. Known for their high build quality and precision optics, Fujinon lenses have become the industry standard for professional video applications all over the world. The focal-length range is 3.3 to 43mm with a minimum object distance of 0.3 meters, or about 1 foot.
This lens cannot only resolve images for high definition acquisition; it’s also equipped with a wide array of extra features. These features include both QuickZoom and VFormat technology. Quickzoom makes it easy to verify focus by allowing instant telephoto zoom capability while VFormat holds angle of view when in 4:3 aspect ratio mode.
- QuickZoom Technology
- The lens has added capability when zooming, using the QuickZoom switch. At the touch of a button, the lens can move to full telephoto in less than a second. This provides a no-hassle way of verifying focus.
- VFormat Correction
- Achieving 4:3 aspect ratios from a 16:9 CCD is usually performed by cutting off the sides of the imager, effectively making the minimum focal length more telephoto. Fujinon’s VFormat technology preserves the same picture angles by shortening the original focal length. Shots in standard 4:3 hold the same image size as if shot in 16:9.
- High Definition Ready
- Many high definition cameras are hamstrung by insufficient optics. Electronic News Gathering (ENG) lenses traditionally have been built to accommodate standard definition video cameras. This lens is designed specifically with high definition in mind. The optics
