Fujifilm Launches “FUJINON HZK24-300mm” – Duvo Portable

FUJIFILM Corporation has announced that the portable-type broadcast zoom lens “FUJINON HZK24-300mm” (Nickname: Duvo Portable) will deliver at the end of March as the second lens model in the Duvo series.

The Duvo24-300 is a dual format lens, supporting two types of large image sensors. Delivering 12.5x zoom covering 24-300mm, a focal range that is frequently used on set, it achieves compact size and lightweight at 270.5mm in length and 2.95kg in weight and producing high mobility.

In addition to the box-type broadcast zoom lens “FUJINON HZK25-1000mm” (Nickname: Duvo Box), released in March 2023, we have added the portable-type “FUJINON HZK24-300mm” to the Duvo lineup. This versatile portable lens can be used with a tripod, shoulder-mounted, with a Steadicam or for high-angle shooting using a crane. The shallow depth of field allows for cinematic image expression with beautiful bokeh effect, making it ideal for bringing the desired cine look to sporting events, live concerts, reality shows, and other live broadcasts.

Today, in the broadcast industry, cameras equipped with a large image sensor are increasingly used, amidst the growing needs for immersive cinematic expressions featuring the use of shallow depth of field, cinematic bokeh, and high dynamic range. Currently, cinema lenses are commonly used for those applications, however, they are optimized for shooting scripted production, and therefore have a smaller zoom magnification ratio than that of broadcast lenses. They also often require a specialist in focus operation, which is uncommon in the broadcast industry. In response, Fujifilm has expanded its product lineup by introducing the “Duvo Series”, which produces cinematic looks with beautiful bokeh and the ease of broadcast lens operation.

The newly released “FUJINON HZK24-300mm” will be showcased at the 2024 NAB Show, one of the world’s largest international broadcast equipment shows to be held in Las Vegas, USA from April 14 to April 17, 2024 (Booth #C5325). Also, the third Duvo, “HZK Wide” a portable wide angle zoom lens covering a focal length of 14-100mm, will be on display.

Fujifilm will leverage its advanced optical technology, nurtured over many decades, to develop and supply high-performance broadcast lenses, cinema camera lenses, and accessories, addressing the evolving needs of frontline video professionals.
