The Sony SCL-Z18X140 is a first-of-its-kind powered zoom lens for the popular Sony PMW-F3 Compact Digital Cinema Camera. Until now there have been no other servo or powered zoom lenses for the PMW-F3 or any other Super 35mm sized digital camera. For documentary shooters and run-and-gun camera operators, in many ways this is the lens they have been waiting for.
The SCL Z18x140 is a 14x powered zoom, ranging from 18mm-252mm, that mounts directly to the F3's native FZ-mount (underneath the PL-mount adapter) and the zoom functionality is controlled by the until-now inert zoom rocker on the handgrip. The speed of the lens is T3.8 at the wide end to T6.8 in telephoto. Lens metadata, including iris, focus and zoom readings, will be available to view on monitors connected to the PMW-F3 and can also be stored on the internal SxS Pro Memory Cards. This information will be valuable when using the camera on motion control rigs, stereoscopic 3D rigs and during the VFX process. Also notable is that when the cameras are upgraded with the CBK-3DLO1 3D Link Option, the lenses on a pair of tethered cameras can be controlled remotely and simultaneously, opening a world of possiblities for S3D applications.
