Fujifilm upgrades its most robust lens range for the VISION 2022 exhibition
Fujifilm has confirmed that representatives of the company will exhibit its new range of industrial lenses at VISION 2022 show. The trade show is in Stuttgart, Germany, from October 4-6, 2022. The Japanese company will be at booth 10F50. The lenses are specially designed for demanding applications requiring a high resistance to shocks and vibrations.
The FUJINON HF-XA-1F series is suitable for image sensor sizes from 2/3” to 1/1.2” and resolutions up to 5 Megapixel resulting in 3.45µm pixel sizes. The series carries over the optical design and performance of the HF-XA-5M lenses into a completely new mechanical design.
The focal ranges are from 8mm to 35mm. They are able to capture objects at a minimum distance of 100 mm. The FUJINON HF-XA-1F series not only features Fujifilm’s popular Anti Shock & Vibration technology, but it also takes it one step further with a rugged mechanical design with no moving parts inside the lens. This ensures the highest possible optical stability and durability, even under harsh conditions.
The focus is adjusted with the special C-mount and its nut and counter nut system: The user attaches the lens to the camera by turning it into the C-mount thread until the correct focus is achieved. This position is then locked using the mount nut of the lens. That way, the complete lens is adjusted to the sensor without moving optical glass parts inside the lens.
Similarly, the iris is fixed to avoid moving parts to be shifted by shocks: Users can adapt the iris to their needs by exchanging the fix iris plate. Three different plates are provided with every lens: F open, F4, and F8. They can be exchanged by the user and are screw-locked to ensure they can withstand heavy shocks and vibrations.
Fujifilm has tested the new lenses by applying forces up to 10G in six directions and measuring the shift of the optical axis after the test. The results show barely visible shifts.
