Fujinon 19-90mm Cabrio PL-mount compact zoom with handheld servo pack for ENG use and which features the longest range of any lightweight zoom.

The 19-90mm Cabrio has a detachable handgrip, converting it from an ENG/EFP handheld zoom to a cinema zoom. The removable servo drive contains built-in lens motors for focus, iris, and zoom, with a rocker switch controlling the zoom.

The Cabrio connects with the hot shoe contacts in the lens mounts of newer PL-mount cameras. Compatibility with Preston, Arri, Heden or cMotion systems by detaching the handgrip for remote operation with any third party controller. The drive is self-centering, and will calibrate itself when reattached.

Luminous paint improves the visibility of the zoom, focus and iris index marks.

The cabrio also has a macro feature allowing for close focusi of just 55cm - a rarity for cine lenses
