Fujifilm 4K lenses capture historic moment in time at the coronation of Felipe VI


King Felipe VI was born in 1968 as heir apperent, until the abdication of his father King Juan Carlos, he held the title of Prince of Asturias. He succeeded to the throne of Spain on 19 June 2014.

The recent 4K production of this historic moment at the coronation Filipe VI was a collaboration between Sony, TVE, Xeltec and Fujinon. On site there were two Sony F-55 equiped with Fujinon Cabrio ZK4.7×19 and ZK3.5×85 4K UHD lenses at the Hall of Columns at the Royal Palace of Madrid.

The 4K PL-mount 19-90mm Cabrio (ZK4.7×19) and 85-300mm (ZK3.5×85) feature an exclusive detachable servo drive unit, making them suitable for use as standard PL cine lens or as an ENG-Style lens. The ZK Series also feature flange focal distance adjustment, macro function, and are LDS (Lens Data System) and i/metadata compatible. With focal ranges from 14.5 to 300mm the ZK-Series are extremly light-weight starting at only 2.7kg including servo motors and drive unit, the lenses have the longest focal range available in their class.

Videographers used to shooting video in a typical ENG-style will be very comfortable with the full servo function; as all ZK-Series (Cabrio) lenses can be controlled using standard Fujinon control kits or cinema industry standard wireless controllers for zoom and focus functions.
