Canon eDrive offers versatility, repeatability in lens control
Canon's new Enhanced Digital Technology lets users of its portable HD and SD lenses automate select functions depending on their personal preferences.
Canon’s eDrive feature is built into the company’s full line of e-HDxs HD and e-IFxs SD portable zoom lenses.
Using three Canon microprocessor-driven digital servos with 16-bit optical encoders, the eDrive technology offers control of portable lenses. With eDrive, users can easily program functions, such as zoom and focus settings, into a lens.
eDrive provides nine user-definable function profiles; a choice of manual, digitally assisted or fully programmed control; and instant shuttle shot to zoom to the longest focal length.
