Case Study

A New Era Captured by the FUJINON MK Series


In the last article, I wrote about the optical performance and body design of the MK Series of Cine lenses released by Fujifilm. This time, I'd like to talk about the usability and creativity of these products during actual shooting.

Aiming to shoot the dark green season at the end of May, I chose the location of "Tofukuji," said to be the oldest temple in Kyoto. First of all, I'd like to show off the shots I took.

Shot on the α6500 with grading. A texture unimaginable for 8-bit.

The dynamic range of 14 stops can be clearly seen. Captured using the MK 18-55mm at T2.9.

Sony's official LUT was applied and further noise processing performed to create a reference image

One cut shot outdoors using S-Log3/S-Gamut3.cine with no light

Final image after grading. The colors are absolutely stunning

Focus without breathing is truly the technology of cinema lenses

When video expressions using zoom become possible, the possibilities of expression methods expand

In order to show off the abyss-like appearance of Tofukuji's Tsuten-kyo Bridge, grading while remaining conscious of the depth was performed

Thanks to the light weight of the lenses, you can carry additional special equipment. Operation is simple and precise.
