Canon introduces ENG/EFP lenses for HD, SD
With the new HJ22ex7.6B lens and HJ17ex7.7B lens for HDTV/SDTV and new J35ex11B IASD lens and J35ex15B IASD lens for SDTV, Canon has enhanced the levels of optical quality and flexibility available to those needing to shoot in the field.
The HJ22ex7.6B lens replaces Canon’s HJ21x7.8B lens. The 4-pound HJ22 lens gives users an increased focal length of 7.6~168mm, or 15.2~336mm with 2X extender.
Weighing 3.83 pounds, the new HJ17ex7.7B lens takes HD portability further as it replaces the widely used HJ16x8 lens. It is a fast lens of f1.8, and offers the high performance of Canon’s e-HDxs system.
The HJ22 and HJ17 models join Canon’s exceptional line of portable HD lenses, including the HJ11ex4.7B lens and HJ21ex7.5B lens, all of which feature e-HDxs technology, as well as the versatility of Canon’s optional Crossover system for switchability between 16:9/4:3 formats.
The new Canon J35 series replaces the long-running J33 series of SDTV EFP lenses, featuring improved optics made with the environment in mind and the highly useful controls of Digital Drive. Focal length for the J35ex11B lens is 11~385mm, or 22~770mm with 2X extender, while focal length for the J35ex15B lens is 15~525mm, achieving 1050 with 2X extender.
The J35ex11B IASD lens and J35ex15B IASD lens both employ Canon’s IFxs system, which brings higher specifications to a lighter and more compact package.
