Extreme Cinematography with AJ Bleyer & FUJINON Premista

The right lens puts you beyond the boundaries of what’s possible on screen – especially, in extreme cinematography, where imagination takes over the limits. DGA director AJ Bleyer shows it like nobody does.

In his latest extreme Red Bull Racing commercial, he tried out our FUJINON’s 19-45mm Premista wide cine-zoom lens paired with the RED Digital Cinema V-RAPTOR inside an airplane. And the results are jaw-dropping!

“Equipped with a RED V-Raptor, FUJINON Premista, and our new eND RF to PL adapter, we team up with Red Bull Racing for a series of back-to-back jumps across California and Washington,”

AJ Bleyer.

Zooming in on Wildlife: GFX100 II Test-Drive with Shelley Pearson

Bird photography is a delicate art that requires patience, precision, and a dash of wonder. Each bird presents a unique challenge. You learn to anticipate their moves, study their habits and habitats, becoming a part of their world. Every click of your camera is a hunt for a perfect moment, and your lens must be incredibly accurate and responsive to capture the elegance of a hummingbird’s glance or the wild spirit of an eagle’s flight. It’s about capturing life in its tiniest and the grandest. 

Based in Australia’s west coast, a professional bird and wildlife photographer Shelley Pearson tried the new GFX100 II camera paired with the Fujifilm GF 250mm F4 LM OIS WR prime lens and the Fujifilm teleconverter GF 1.4X TC WR in the field.

Premiere in Europe: FUJINON SX1600 long-range surveillance camera system goes to Milipol 2023

When looking at MARVEL’s superheroes, we sometimes imagine how cool it would be – to have their superpowers in the real life. For instance, what if we could see kilometres away spotting every detail as if it was right nearby? Then, we could quickly identify available parking spots when running late to the cinema. We would never be stuck in a traffic jam again, zooming accidents, congestions, and road signs from far away. Moving to a bigger scale, we would prevent crimes, safeguard people, forecast disasters – be real superheroes MARVEL couldn’t dream of.

Well, maybe, our eyes are not that strong. But we have curious minds and innovative technologies to go much further.

With the latest FUJINON SX1600 long-range surveillance camera system, you can turn your safeguarding capabilities into a superpower, no matter whether it’s used for cityscapes, maritime, highways, public facilities, or critical infrastructure. This newbie lets you spot a needle in a haystack from kilometers away and turns distant specks into clear, unmistakable details, making long-range surveillance not just effective but truly remarkable.

On November 14-17, the FUJINON SX1600 will be showcased in Europe for the first time. We are presenting it at the Milipol Paris 2023 – the leading event for homeland security and safety with 1000+ exhibitors and 30 000+ visitors from over 150 countries. In 2019, our FUJINON SX801 took the stage, showing breath-taking capabilities, and now, following the best practices, we are bringing to the table the new era of long-range surveillance solutions.

Check out the video to see what FUJINON SX801 is capable of.
