Rental house supplier Video Europe has secured a deal to make it the first company in the market to offer Canon’s latest lens, the CN8.
The lens is a wide-angle zoom, designed for cinematic high dynamic range capture and resolutions up to 8K. The 15-120 mm lens is fitted with enhanced servo drive, and lens data for Cooke /I and Zeiss eXtended data is output for VR and AR projects, with 16-bit precision.
“Our clients today are shooting high-end projects, on Super 35mm as well as full frame digital,” said Matt Marner, director of Video Europe.
“This new lens from Canon gives cinematographers sharpness and detail from edge to edge with a lovely, natural bokeh, beautiful specular highlights and cinematic depth of field. Adding the CN8 to our inventory responds to our clients’ continuing expectations that we will offer the finest tools to realise their vision.”
Video Europe said it expects to take delivery of the first 20 lenses at the end of November 2022, when they will be available for immediate rental.
