Among the first to order the recently introduced PL 19-90 Cabrio ZK4.7x19
lens is Toronto-based SIM Digital
—long time Fujinon broadcast and PL lens users—who ordered 14 of the lenses immediately following NAB, where it was first introduced.
A part of the PREMIER PL Mount Zoom family, the lightweight and compact lens features a first for cine-style lenses: an exclusive detachable servo drive unit that makes it suitable for use as a standard Cine PL lens or as an ENG-Style lens. SIM Digital’s use of the PL 19-90 is the latest addition to the hundreds of other Fujinon lenses they have acquired over the past 30 years (thanks, SIM Digital!)
According to Rob Sim, Founder & President of SIM Digital, the eight PL 19-90 lenses they received were immediately rented and have been used continually without any issues – a trend he expects will continue. He credits the lens’ success to the focal length of the lens and the ability to use it in an ENG scenario, making it ideal for shooting episodic television, feature films, and other multiple camera environments. Shows that have benefited from use of the PL 19-90 lens via SIM Digital so far include Rookie Blue and Beauty and the Beast.

Director of Marketing & Product Development Thom Calabro introduces the Fujinon XA19 Lens, which debuted at NAB 2012.
The XA19x mini-box lens offers automatic compensation of focus breathing. This mechanism synchronizes the zoom movement to the focus movement, enabling the image size to remain constant when focusing - a must in episodic production. The XA 19x7.4BESM-D8 is ideally suited to live studio production, such as live news, sports, and entertainment. With features like RS-232 control and tally lights, it can also be used in conjunction with virtual reality studio sets and robotic camera systems. Both the XA19x7.4BESM-D8 and HA19x7.4BERM/BERD lenses have advanced diagnostics to keep them working reliably, as well as a short "MOD" or minimum object distance of 0.55mm, which allows shooting at closer distances.
