The 14-35mm will have the same 114mm front diameter as the other two Cabrio zooms which is a great, common front diameter. The lens will weigh about 6 lbs. with the motor drive unit attached. It also features the same back-focus adjustment built into the rear of the lens and the /i metadata and LDS system in the PL mount that will offer zoom, focus, and iris position data.
The PL 14-35 Cabrio (ZK2.5x14) features an exclusive detachable servo drive unit, making it suitable for use as a standard PL lens or as an ENG-Style lens. The ZK2.5x14 also features flange focal distance adjustment, macro function, and is LDS (Lens Data System) and /i metadata compatible. With a 14-35mm focal range and weight of only 2.7kg including servo motors, this lens has the widest focal range available in a light-weight zoom.
Videographers used to shooting video in a typical ENG-style will be very comfortable with the servo. Cinematographers will also be right at home with this lens. With the detachable drive removed, the lens is set to accept industry standard cine motors and matte boxes. Plus, the lens has all the lens data output that appeals to a Cine-style shooter. LDS and /i metadata compatibility is very useful when you want to record the position information of zoom, iris and focus for computer animation and other uses.
The digital servo on the PL 14-35 has 16-bit encoding, so operators can be assured that all lens data output is extremely accurate.
The PL 14-35 covers 31.5mm sensor size on a digital cinema style camera. While sensors on standard broadcast cameras are all the same size, sensors on digital cine cameras vary greatly. This new zoom ensures the image captured will cover large sensors for optimal, full-frame resolution. A nine-blade iris part of the design as well, creating the most natural-looking imagery possible.
Barrel markings are luminous for visibility in dark shooting situations. Distances are listed in feet or meters and can be changed in the field.
The PL 14-35 can be controlled using cinema industry standard wireless controllers, as well as existing Fujinon wired and wireless units. Whether you are from a film background or a video one, the Premier PL 14-35 offers uncompromising quality and unprecedented flexibility.
