Talamas believes its new zoom will see considerable use in both broadcast (cooking shows, concerts and other live multi-cam scenarios) as well as cine applications (commercials, indie-films, and television productions).
The rental house started carrying the PL mount 25-300mm since the end of 2017, and it went out on a three-week rental the day it arrived.
“The beauty of the FUJINON 25-300mm is that it offers a generous focal range and a lot of control for use in both studio and cine-style configurations,” said Dave Talamas, CEO of Talamas. The lens’ credit list includes high-profile dramas such as: Chicago Med, How to Get Away with Murder, and Madam Secretary.
For broadcast projects, Talamas noted, “The detachable digital servo control allows this lens to fill a hole in the market and makes it an ideal fit for many production scenarios. We’re confident it will be a great lens for live events.”
In addition to its new 25-300mm Cabrio lens, Talamas offers an array of FUJINON Cabrios 20-120mm, 19-90mm, and 85-300mm lenses, along with a myriad FUJINON B4 HD broadcast lenses.
Equipped with a 35mm PL mount, the FUJINON 25-300mm Cabrio lens boasts a high zoom ratio covering the focal length of 25mm to 300mm – giving users the versatility to cover a wide range of shooting environments. The PL 25-300mm covers 31.5mm sensor size on a digital cinema style camera, and supports an optional, detachable servo drive for electric zooming, focusing and iris. Mounting the unit enables remote control of zoom, focus and iris adjustment. It can be used as a self-contained ENG-style or cine style lens.
“A digital cinema house needs to offer customers a wide range of versatile lenses, and FUJINON lenses have consistently been an effective and reliable component of our lens inventory,” said Talamas. “The Optical Devices Division of FUJIFILM essentially created the digital servo cinema lens market years ago. We own an assortment of their 19-90mm and 85-300mm Cabrio lenses and had to purchase more because they’re always in such high demand. FUJINON lenses offer a lot of lenses for a very reasonable price. With all of their lenses, you can expect rugged design, robustness and high value.”
