Broadcast equipment sales and rental specialists Videocraft has updated its rental fleet with five of the very latest Fujinon Cabrio lenses that include three 19x90mm, one 85-300mm and one 14x35mm wide angle lens.

Videocraft Victoria rentals manager George Pana said, “The Fujinon Cabrio lenses have been some of the most popular lenses we’ve ever had in our rental fleet. Our customers particularly like the fact that they are lightweight, versatile and help produce great images on cameras such as the Sony F5, F55, F65 and ARRI ALEXA.”


The Fujinon PL 19-90mm and 85-300mm Cabrio lenses feature an exclusive detachable servo drive unit, making them suitable for use as a standard PL lens. The Cabrios also feature flange focal distance adjustment, macro function and are LDS (Lens Data System) and /i metadata compatible. With 19-90mm and 85-300mm focal ranges and weighting only 2.7kg and 3.3kg respectively including servo motors, these lenses have some of the longest focal range available in lightweight zooms. The 14-35mm Cabrio is comfortable to use with today’s smaller 4K cameras and aimed at camera operators looking for a lightweight zoom that can be used handheld and to capture wide angles in tight spaces. At T2.9, with 200-degree focus rotation and its detachable digital servo drive the 14-35mm Cabrio can be used as a self-contained ENG-style lens or a cine style lens. When used without the drive, industry-standard cine motors can be fitted.

George Pana concluded, “For our clients who want great quality lenses that give them the ultimate in flexibility and shooting options it’s hard to beat the Fujinon Cabrio lenses. As a result they are always in great demand.”
