Thales Angenieux Extends HD Lens Lineup

Thales Angenieux has extended its line of HD Video Lenses with the introduction of a 14 x 4.5 HD Video Wide Angle Lens. The new 14 x 4.5 lens perfectly complements Angenieux’s high performance 19X ENG and 26X Telephoto HD Video Lenses as all three HD Video lenses in the line offer the longest zoom range in their respective categories.

“The introduction of the new 14 x 4.5 HD Video Wide Angle Lens joins our 19X and 26X HD video lenses and rounds out our line of HD lenses for broadcast and production applications,” says Chris Beauparlant, VP, U.S. Sales and Marketing, Thales Angenieux. “With this addition to our line-up, Angenieux’s HD video lenses deliver the longest focal range for each lens in their respective categories.”

The new 14 x 4.5 HD Video Wide Angle Lens joins Angenieux’s 19 x 7.3 and 26 x 7.8 HD Video Lens offering. The new lens offers a focal range of 4.5 to 63mm (9 to 126mm with 2x extender) and an aperture of f/1.8 (4.5 to 41mm). The lightweight 14 x 4.5 HD Video Wide Angle Lens weighs just 4.6 pounds and is available in semi servo and full servo versions, as well as with 16 bit digital connection for zoom and handle connection.

The 19 x 7.3 HD Video Lens offers precision optics and a focal range of 7.3mm to 139mm. Weighing only 4 pounds with 2x extender, and 3.7 pounds, the lens’s 19X zoom range allows close-up images with optimized definition and clarity. In addition, the lens’ wide angle capability is ideal for panoramic like wide shots not possible with conventional ENG lenses

Angenieux’s 26 x 7.8 HD Video Telephoto Lens features a focal range of 7.8mm to 203mm (5.6mm to 406mm with a 2x extender) and an aperture of f/2.2. Ideal for today’s high-resolution digital and HDTV cameras, its light weight and compact size make it a perfect selection for EFP and use in auxiliary shooting situations (i.e. cranes, trucks, stabilization units, etc.).
