ARRI/Fujinon Alura Zooms

ARRI/Fujinon Alura Zooms

High in optical performance, amazingly small in size and weight

ARRI and Fujinon have joined forces to create a completely new family of modern cine zooms. Using the latest in optical design technology and innovative manufacturing techniques, the ARRI/Fujinon Alura Zooms combine the highest optical performance with an amazingly small size and weight.

Experience has shown that for most productions, two types of complementary zooms are needed: a wide and a long zoom. The wide Alura Zoom 18-80 and the long Alura Zoom 45-250 form a set of matched PL mount cine zooms for digital and film cameras. Both lenses share a maximum open aperture of T2.6 and great care has been taken to ensure that the T-stop remains truly consistent over the whole zoom range; this is especially useful in digital cinematography, where a drop in light levels becomes noticeable very quickly.

The Alura Zooms are compatible with ARRI digital and film cameras as well as ARRI accessories, and are optically matched to existing prime lenses in ARRI’s range. Like all other ARRI products, these zooms have been constructed to stringent environmental requirements for the rough conditions of professional production. Equally important is fast and easy operation: large, easy-to-read, precision focus scales on both sides of the lens make focus pulling a snap.
