Mansion Mobile equips new production vehicle with Canon 12 HD lenses
Mansion Mobile has equipped ME-2HD, its new 53ft expando mobile HD production unit, with seven long-zoom HD field lenses and five portable HD zoom lenses from Canon.
Mansion Mobile’s seven Canon long-zoom HD field lenses include two DIGISUPER 100xs and five DIGISUPER 86xs models. The DIGISUPER 100xs and the DIGISUPER 86xs feature Canon’s second-generation built-in Image Stabilization (or Shift-IS) system, which helps enable camera operators to capture solid imagery at telephoto distances.
Both lenses also feature Canon’s Digital Servo System, which employs microcomputer technology to compensate for lens-focus breathing — the inadvertent alteration of field of view when operating the focus control.
Mansion Mobile’s five portable Canon HD zoom lenses include two HJ11ex4.7B wide-angle EFP lenses and three HJ22ex7.6B ENG lenses. Capable of more than 91 degrees of horizontal angle of view in the 16:9 image format, the HJ11ex4.7B is engineered for wide-angle shooting with minimum chromatic aberrations and geometric distortion.
