Canon launches two high performance 2/3” field broadcast lenses7 September 2015
Canon has introduced two new 2/3” 4K field lenses – the UHD DIGISUPER 86 (UJ86x9.3B) and UHD DIGISUPER 90 (UJ90x9B). The UHD DIGISUPER 86 (UJ86x9.3B) surpasses even 4K resolution, and both are ideal for use within live broadcast production environments.
The UHD DIGISUPER 86 (UJ86x9.3B)and UHD DIGISUPER 90 (UJ90x9B) are part of Canon’s evolving 2/3” 4K lens line-up and join the recently launched CJ12ex4.3B in the range. Both provide professionals with the freedom to shoot live broadcast or sport events in 4K quality, and in a first for Canon’s 2/3” lens line-up, the UHD DIGISUPER 86 (UJ86x9.3B) offers resolving power beyond 4K.
The new lenses ensure exceptional resolution from the image centre to the edges, at both telephoto and wide angle, thanks to their advanced optical construction. Additionally, an increased use of fluorite and UD glass, combined with Canon’s use of coatings, results in exceptional control over ghosting and flare with sharp, high contrast images supporting a large number of tones.
The UHD DIGISUPER 86 (UJ86x9.3B) has an 86x zoom, with a focal range of 9.3mm – 800mm, and the UHD DIGISUPER 90 (UJ90x9B) goes even further to 90x, with a 9mm – 810mm focal range. To ensure operators can capture a diverse range of scenes both lenses also feature a built-in 2x extender which doubles the telephoto power, while maintaining 4K resolution.
Thanks to Canon’s optical Image Stabilizer technologies, the UHD DIGISUPER 86 (UJ86x9.3B) and UHD DIGISUPER 90 (UJ90x9B) deliver crisp, clear results, acquiring maximum precision, even during panning. This is essential for tracking moving subjects at sports matches and events, while compensating for swing-back. Aditionally, operators are able to keep subjects in focus, even in challenging situations such as when long focus but shallow depth of field is required.
The UHD DIGISUPER 86 (UJ86x9.3B) and UHD DIGISUPER 90 (UJ90x9B) feature a compact design, comparable in size and weight to current HD 2/3” field lenses, allowing integration into operating environments. Both lenses also incorporate a 20-pin connector for integration with virtual systems and are fully compatible with existing Canon accessories designed for 2/3” HD Canon field lenses.
