FUJIFILM/FUJINON has signed on to be the Australian Cinematographers Society’s (ACS) Major National sponsor for the tenth straight consecutive year rounding off a decade of support for the society.
Over the last ten years FUJIFILM’s relationship with the ACS has included initiatives that have seen the establishment of the ACS National HQ in North Sydney, the company being front and centre in all Branch and National awards ceremonies and providing support for top Australian and international cinematographers.
ACS national president Ron Johanson OAM ACS said, “The ACS is delighted that FUJIFILM have reached this amazing milestone with a decade of wonderful support for our society. The relationship between the ACS and FUJIFILM is an incredibly solid and productive one and one built on mutual respect, support and collaborative spirit. On behalf of the entire ACS I would like to thank Marc van Agten and the team at FUJIFILM and we all look forward to another great year of working together.”
The last few years has seen an explosion in the use of Fujinon cine lenses by cinematographers around the world, first with the Cabrio series and more recently with the new MK series. This is in part due to the rapid growth in popularity of movies made by emerging cinematographers and which has boosted demand for high-performance cinema lenses that deliver high resolution and advanced scene-depicting capability.
The first FUJINON MK50-135mm T2.9 (MK50-135mm) telephoto zoom lens with the focal length of 50-135mm was released in Australia earlier this month.
Marc Van Agten commented, “FUJIFILM have been synonymous with cinematographers and now the ACS for many years. It’s a great partnership. The ACS serves its members and the entire industry very well and on behalf of everyone at FUJIFILM I would like to thank Ron and all the ACS Branch and National committees and members for their continued support. We look forward to furthering our partnership in the years ahead.”
