SYDNEY, 6 November 2017 – The Optical Devices Division of FUJIFILM has been awarded an Engineering Emmy for its FUJINON “4K Cine Zoom Lenses providing imagery in television” by the Television Academy, and received the honour at this year’s Academy’s Engineering Awards ceremony. The introduction of FUJINON’s Cabrio and Premier series of cinema zoom lenses brought about the ability to cover Super 35mm imagers and efficiently shoot the full gamut of television production without sacrificing image quality.
“The willingness of some of the top cinematographers and their rental houses to test, explore and provide feedback about our lenses is an integral part of this Emmy win,” states Thomas Fletcher, Director of Sales, FUJIFILM Optical Devices Division. “They’re a very loyal group, devoted to their lens choice. To test a new cinema lens is not something that’s considered lightly. Winning an honour as prestigious as an Emmy is an affirmation of Fujifilm’s dedication to the art and craft of cinematography. We thank the Academy for their recognition of our work and for the support we’ve received from the cinematography community.”
