Canon Expands Portable Zoom Lens Lineup for 4K Broadcast Cameras

Canon Australia has announced the launch of a new addition to its UHDxs series of portable zoom lenses for 4K broadcast cameras employing ⅔-inch sensors: the CJ25ex7.6B, which offers a 25x zoom ratio with a focal length range from 7.6mm to 190mm while achieving superb optical performance. Its compact, lightweight design affords the lens excellent manoeuvrability and operability, making it suitable for a range of applications – in both indoor and outdoor locations – including sports broadcasting and news reporting.

Employing fluorite, Ultra-Low Dispersion (UD) glass, and a proprietary optical design that places these materials in optimal positions, the CJ25ex7.6B suppresses chromatic aberration from the centre to the periphery of the image across the entire zoom range and achieves high resolving power and high contrast to make possible high-resolution video capture. Through lens coating technology and a design that prevents reflections within the lens barrel, the lens reduces the occurrence of ghosting and flaring and realises superlative colour reproduction ideal for HDR and wide colour gamut (WCG) video shooting.

This lens offers a 25x zoom ratio covering a focal length range from 7.6 mm at the wide end to 190 mm at the telephoto end to support a variety of shooting scenarios. The CJ25ex7.6B employs a new zoom system that reduces deviations in optical performance that can arise from zoom operations to realise high-resolution, high-contrast imaging from the centre to the periphery across the entire zoom range.

In addition to delivering 4K optical performance, the CJ25ex7.6B achieves a compact, lightweight body design that weighs approximately 1.99kg and measures of 169.6 (width) x 114.1 (height) x 223.3 (length) mm. As such, the lens maintains the high levels of manoeuvrability demanded in such fields as news reporting and documentary production and reduces the burden on the user.

The CJ25ex7.6B will be available in January 2019.
