Canon adds nine new HDgc lenses
Canon has leveraged the advanced image quality and operational capabilities of its eHDxs line of portable lenses to engineer nine new HDgc lenses for 2/3in, 1/2in and 1/3in video camera imagers.
The higher-end eDrive Series of HDgc lenses includes three models: the KJ16ex7.7B IRSE, KJ21ex7.6B IRSE and KJ10ex4.5B IRSE lenses. All are designed for cameras with 2/3in imagers.
The lenses feature a built-in 2X extender and Canon's digital eDrive feature, which enables users to program functions such as zoom and focus settings into the lens for precise, automated repeatability.
The three new HDgc lenses that comprise the Economical Series include the KJ13x6B KRS (for 2/3in), KH13x4.5 KRS (for 1/2in) and the KT20x5B KRS lenses (for 1/3in).
The third category of new HDgc lenses is the Remote-Control Series, which includes the KJ20x8.5B KTS (for 2/3in), KH20x6.4 KTS (for 1/2in) and KT20x5B KTS lenses (for 1/3in).
