If there’s one thing CineD’s really good for, it’s behind-the-scenes factory tours, particularly from Fuji. Having been first rumoured way back at the beginning of 2021, officially announced last year and finally now shipping worldwide, the Fujifilm XF 150-600mm f/5.6-8 R LM OIS WR is an interesting-looking lens. What’s even more interesting, though, is seeing how it’s made and the processes that go into it.
In the video above, Johnnie Behiri from CineD goes to visit Fujifilm at their Taiwa factory in Sendai, Japan to do exactly that, see how it’s made. It’s a fairly short video, clocking in at around four and a half minutes, but it covers a lot of detail and gives us an insight into how the gear we use comes together and the things that all need to come together to make it happen.
