Fujifilm Introduces Two High Performance Cinema Lenses for its Mirrorless Digital Camera X Series Range

Fujifilm has announced that it will introduce its first two full manual cinema lenses that are compatible with its mirrorless digital camera X Series interchangeable lens line-up.

FUJIFILM Australia National Product and Marketing Manager - Electronic Imaging, Alex Zitser, said the growth of video production has created a demand among videographers and cinematographers for lenses optimised to shoot.

“These new MKX lenses further enhance the range for professional video shooting,” said Mr Zitser.

The FUJINON MKX18-55mmT2.9 and FUJINON MKX50-135mmT2.9 deliver high optical performance and comfortable operation for professional video shooting.

To further support increased demands for video production, FUJIFILM has also announced the new X-H1, which features a range of new or upgraded video functions such as a 5-axis in-body image stabilisation with a maximum 5.5 stops, the new ETERNA Film Simulation which is ideal for shooting movies, and 1080/120P high-speed video mode.

Traditionally, cinema lenses are large, heavy and expensive compared with photographic lenses.

In February 2017, Fujifilm released compact and lightweight MK lenses for E-mount cameras, offering the same optical performance and operation as expensive cinema lenses. Keeping the same design concepts, the new MKX lenses are now compatible with FUJIFILM’s X-mount cameras within the Fujifilm X Series range. The new MKX lenses has an electrical contact to communicate with the camera, which not only corrects the distortion and colour/brightness shading, but also achieves various colour expressions with Fujifilm’s Film Simulation modes.

The new lenses are expected to be available in Australia in June 2018.
The FUJINON MKX18-55mmT2.9 has a recommended retail price of $6,149.
The FUJINON MKX50-135mmT2.9 has a recommended retail price of $6,449.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
