Industry veteran Simon Murphy has been promoted to the role of national sales manager for all FUJINON optical products in Australia. Murphy’s remit now includes all FUJINON products from long range surveillance lenses and CCTV lenses through to high-end broadcast and cine lenses. He is also responsible for the sales of the broad range within FUJIFILM’s Industrial Products Division.
Murphy has essentially been with FUJIFILM Australia since 2006 where, in amongst other roles, he successfully managed their Recording Media Division for over a decade. In addition to FUJIFILM he has also enjoyed considerable success with other major international companies including Sony, Panasonic, JVC, AGFA and BASF.
Simon Murphy said, “It’s an exciting time to be part of the FUJIFILM Australia team as, despite the obvious challenges in the market, we have some excellent new products including our new UA125x8 and UA107x8.4 products – the marquee offerings in our 4K Plus Premier lens range – and our range of 8K lenses which enable sportscasters to futureproof better than they ever have been able to before. Then there’s the new flagship wide-angle Premista 19-45mm zoom lens – the third model to join the Premista Series of zoom lenses for cinema cameras that support large-format sensors.”
The newly developed Premista19-45mm is a wide-angle zoom lens that covers focal lengths from 19mm to 45mm with a constant T-stop of 2.9. Featuring large-diameter aspherical lens elements and a unique zooming system, the lens achieves an astonishing level of edge-to-edge sharpness.
Murphy concluded, “I’m very much looking forward to meeting all FUJIFILM and FUJINON Australia customers again face-to-face as soon as the situation allows it. In the meantime anyone who would like to contact me can do so at any time on 0419 770 167 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.”
