FUJIFILM India has released its broadcast zoom lens “FUJINON HZK25-1000mm” (HZK25-1000mm), which has a 40x zoom and a 1000mm focal length, respectively, making it the longest zoom lens in the world. The HZK25-1000mm is a dual-format, box-type broadcast zoom lens that is compatible with two distinct sizes of image sensors. It’s great for broadcasting concerts and athletic events live since it allows for dramatic visual expressions like narrow depth-of-field for lovely bokeh.
For marketing purposes, Fujifilm has dubbed the FUJINON HZK25-1000mm the “Duvo Box,”*2, which means “dual format live lens”*3.

FUJINON HZK25-1000mm Features
The new Duvo Box has a 40x zoom and a 1000mm focal length, thanks to years of developing optical technology. The ability to zoom in far improves the quality of live broadcasts of athletic events and concerts, as well as the filming and editing of movies and television ads.
The dual format allows it to be placed on cinema cameras, which are becoming more commonplace in the broadcasting sector. The lens is compatible with Super 35mm sensors and can accommodate sensors with a focal length comparable to 35mm full frame*4 by using the built-in expander*5. It also has the additional advantage of ensuring that both sensors are looking in the same direction.
The lens’s wide-angle F2.8 aperture allows for stunning bokeh and narrow depth of focus, perfect for cinematic visual expression. To attain optical performance greater than 4K, large-diameter aspherical elements and fluorite elements*6 are used for full control of different kinds of aberration.
When attached to a cinema camera, the lens may be controlled in the same way as a broadcast lens—through zoom demand and focus demand. It’s compatible with a wide range of add-ons already on the market.
