Canon Launches New Field Zoom Lenses for 4K Broadcast

Canon Australia has announced the launch of two new field zoom lenses for broadcast cameras: the UHD-DIGISUPER 122, which realises the world’s widest angle , longest focal length and highest zoom ratio; and the UHD-DIGISUPER 111, which delivers a long focal length and high zoom ratio that covers a wide range of shooting.

The UHD-DIGISUPER 122 and UHD-DIGISUPER 111 combine optical performance exceeding 4K with focal lengths covering a broad range, high zoom ratios and superlative operability. Realising descriptive power with exceptional colour reproduction from the wide end to the telephoto end, these lenses make possible realistic, high-resolution video shooting for sports broadcasting at large stadiums and for such indoor events as concerts.

Canon’s flagship field zoom broadcast lens, the UHD-DIGISUPER 122 realises the world’s widest angle and world’s longest focal length – 8.2mm at the wide end and 1000mm at the telephoto end – as well as a zoom ratio of 122x while achieving high resolving power exceeding 4K. What’s more, the UHD-DIGISUPER 111, with a 111x zoom ratio and a focal length range of 8.3mm to 925mm, also achieves an even higher zoom ratio than existing lenses the UHD-DIGISUPER 86 and UHDDIGISUPER 90 3.

Pursuing optimal lens placement, high precision parts and assembly, the UHDDIGISUPER 122 and UHD-DIGISUPER 111 achieve exceptional optical performance exceeding 4K, delivering high-resolution, high-contrast video capture from the centre to the peripheral areas of the imaging field. What’s more, as the first broadcast lenses to employ Canon’s proprietary ASC 4 (Air Sphere Coating) the lenses achieve reduced flaring and ghosting ideal for HDR 5 and wide colour gamut video shooting – which is becoming more and more common in the broadcast video products market – making possible high-tonality visual expression.

The UHD-DIGISUPER 122 and UHD-DIGISUPER 111 will be available in early 2019.
