IBC: Canon to Exhibit Optical Stabilized HD ENG Lenses
Canon's ENG HJ15ex8.5B KRSE-V lens

Canon will show its newest very wide angle lens, the HJ14ex4.3, and the Optical Stabilized HD ENG HJ15ex8.5B KRSE-V lens. With a minimum focal length of 4.3mm the HJ14ex4.3 lens features the widest angle among presently available 2/3-inch lenses with an angular field of view of 96.3° in the 16:9 format at the wide end. This is significantly augmented with the 14x zoom range reaching to 60mm(120mm with extender). The HJ15ex8.5B KRSE-V incorporates an innovation intended to significantly enhance HD motion imaging on location shoots of many forms. The lens has a built-in optical image stabilization system that employs Canon's patented Vari-Angle Prism Image Stabilizer (VAP-IS). The VAP-IS technology has been dramatically improved since it's earlier deployment in a standard definition lens, and produces highly stable HD imagery when the lens-camera system is subjected to a wide range of disturbance frequencies encountered in many shooting environments.

Canon will be at stand 11.E50.

Great Technology which provides image stabilization! I had read recently that someone used this lens to video shoot the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb at Colorado and got great results.

The Best Deconstruction of a 4K Shoot You'll Ever Read
With higher resolutions and larger HD screens, wide shots using very wide lenses can be a problem because they allow viewers to see that infinity doesn’t quite resolve into perfect sharpness.
