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.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
