Vinten unveils Shift-IS support for legacy Canon DIGISUPER lenses

The Vinten Vector 950 Active pan/tilt head, which complements Canon Broadcast's Optical Shift Image Stabilizer (Shift-IS) lens stabilization technology, can now be used with most existing Canon HD field Shift-IS lenses.

The Vector 950 Active is a heavy-duty pan/tilt head designed to carry studio and OB cameras equipped with large zoom lenses weighing up to 264lbs. Vinten's intelligent, integral, real-time digital electronic positioning technology allows for precise and accurate pan-and-tilt data from the head to be transmitted to the stabilization systems of Canon's DIGISUPER 100xs and DIGISUPER 86xs long-field zoom lenses. That technology is now also available as an optional upgrade on the DIGISUPER 100xs, DIGISUPER 86xs II and DIGISUPER 75xs legacy models equipped with Canon's Shift-IS lens technology.

Special encoders in the Vector 950 Active provide pan-and-tilt data, which is linked through a high security protocol to the Canon lens where it is processed to maximize the performance of the Shift-IS image stabilization system. The result is a dynamic image stabilization system that can determine intentional camera movement from unintentional vibration.

The FAA’s current rules and proposed ban on flight over people, requirement of visual line of sight and restriction on nighttime flying, effectively prohibit broadcasters from using UAS for newsgathering. ~ WMUR-TV General Manager Jeff Bartlett
