NOTED DOCUMENTARY FILMMAKER, JON ALPERT, USES FUJINON LENSES TO MAXIMIZE CAPABILITY OF NEW SONY CAMERA AT NAB 2011 Posted: 12/04/2011
FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Optical Devices Division has teamed up with renegade historical documentarian, Jon Alpert, to demonstrate how Fujinons PL mount lens, the 14.5-45mm T2.0 can maximize Sonys new PMW-F3 Super 35mm camcorder.

Since the early 1970s, Alpert has been documenting, and often making history, from Viet Nam to Cuba to Afghanistan. Making films for NBC, PBS, and HBO, Alpert has won 15 Emmy Awards. With documentary shooting, I need one lens to do it all, he said. The lens has to be wide so we can get close to the subjects, and I need a lens that is fast because we work without lights. The Fujinon Premier PL zoom is that lens. Its extraordinary construction and image quality are astonishing.
