Canon to Introduce Four Lenses at NAB2004
Canon, a manufacturer of lenses for broadcast and video production, is set to introduce four lenses at NAB2004. The new products run the gamut from HD ENG lenses to standard-definition EFP zoom lenses.

The J35ex11B IASD and J35ex15B IASD are both standard-definition lenses for electronic field production, featuring a longer zoom range than Canon's previous series as well as the company's Digital Drive for greater control and repeatability. The J35ex11B IASD has a maximum focal length of 385mm (770mm with its 2x extender), while the J35ex15B IASD has a maximum focal length of 525mm (or 1,050mm with its 2x extender).

For ENG operations, the Canon HJ17ex7.7B lens replaces the company's previous HJ16x8 lens. The new lens features a wider focal length, longer zoom ratio, fast f1.8 aperture and weighs just 3.8 pounds. The HJ17ex7.7B uses Canon's e-HDxs technology and is available with a crossover system for 16:9 and 4:3 shooting.

The HJ22ex7.6B replaces Canon's HJ21ex7.8B lens and also features a wider focal length and longer zoom ratio than its predecessor, as well as a maximum focal length of 336mm when using its 2x extender. Other features of this lens include Canon's X-Element and Power Optical System, in addition to the company's Enhanced Digital Drive.
