Over many years Fujinon had been one of the foremost pioneers in the development of optical technology. Based on continuous research, long experience and leading-edge technology, Fujinon branded products provide quality of the highest standard in the world for Broadcast and Cine lenses, Binoculars, lenses for CCTV and Machine Vision applications as well as special custom made optical products e.g. in mobile phones and automobiles.
