In line with the show overall, Fujifilm USA experienced better booth traffic, in part because of the new products we unveiled. Headlining this year’s cast was the Fujinon PL 19-90 Cabrio Lens, which was presented with a Digital Video Best of Show Black Diamond Award. A select panel of engineers, editors, and production and post professionals joined the magazine staff to judge the Best of Show awards for Digital Video, which recognize outstanding achievement in the advancement of video technology. You can see a video of the PL 19-90 here.
