This XA101x8.9BESM/PF 2/3" Precision Focus Assist HD Lens features a combination of wide angle and 101x zoom range. Fujinon's Super EBC optical coating ensures superb optical quality and the exclusive anti-fogging design minimizes lens fogging and reduces downtime due to moisture.
There are two types of switchable-format cameras available today. One type uses 16:9-format CCDs and switches to the 4:3 aspect ratio. The other utilizes 4:3 CCDs and switches to the 16:9 format.
When the 16:9-format CCD system is employed, it is necessary to compensate for a loss in angle of view of about 20 percent that is incurred when switching to the 4:3 aspect ratio. To eliminate this problem, Fujinon offers an optional ratio converter that is located in a four-position extender turret in studio and field lenses, and in an enlarged extender housing in new hand-held lenses.
An additional option for lenses with an 82 mm filter thread (A18X7.6) is the lightweight front-mounted converter model RCV-82SC.
