MELVILLE, N.Y., September 12, 2018 – Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced an addition to its UHDxs series of portable-zoom lenses designed for 2/3 inch sensor 4K broadcast cameras, the CJ25ex7.6B. Featuring a 25x zoom ratio and a focal length ranging from 7.6mm to 190mm, this new portable zoom lens provides users with high-level operational control and the freedom to easily maneuver, making it an ideal lens for a wide-range of applications—both indoors and outdoors.
“As 4K UHD becomes more prevalent for sporting events and news gathering, Canon understands how important is it to develop and deliver lenses with our best imaging technologies to our customers,” said Kazuto Ogawa, president and chief operating officer, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “The new CJ25ex7.6B lens provides Canon’s optical excellence, while maintaining a compact and lightweight construction.”
Adopting fluorite and Ultra-low Dispersion (UD) glass, and proprietary optical design that places these materials in optimal positions, the CJ25ex7.6B suppresses chromatic aberrations from the center to the periphery of the image across the entire zoom range and achieves high resolution and high contrast for high-resolution video capture. Through lens coating technology and a design that prevents reflections within the lens barrel, the lens reduces ghosting and flaring, and produces color reproduction ideal for High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Wide Color Gamut(WCG).
The new lens weighs approximately 4.4 pounds and measures 169.6mm (width) x 114.1mm (height) x 223.3mm (length), making it an excellent option for news reporting and documentary production.
The Canon CJ25ex7.6B IRSE S, a manual focus-type model, and CJ25ex7.6B IASE S, featuring an internal focusing motor are scheduled to be available in the spring of 2019*. For more information please visit www.usa.canon.com/.
