Tennessee ministry adds Canon HD lenses as part of high-def upgrade
For the recent conversion of its in-house production facility to HD, Voice of Evangelism in Cleveland, TN, purchased three Canon DIGISUPER 22xs Compact HD studio lenses and two Canon HJ11ex4.7B IRSE wide-angle portable HD zoom lenses.
Canon’s DIGISUPER 22xs Compact HD studio lens (model XJ122x7.3B IE-D) provides full-featured “box lens” optical performance in a size and weight (13.4lbs.) that is designed for mounting on portable HD cameras configured for studio use.
The resulting low-weight HD camera/lens combination makes a traditional support sled unnecessary and is appropriate for use with a modest size pedestal, sturdy tripod, or robotic mount.
The lens features Canon’s Digital Servo System, which includes microcomputer compensation of lens-focus breathing, the inadvertent alteration of field-of-view when using the focus control.
Designed for electronic field production (EFP), Canon’s HJ11ex4.7B IRSE zoom lens is engineered for wide-angle shooting with minimum chromatic aberrations and geometric distortion. It provides lightweight operation and HD performance.
