NEP Supershooters relies on wide array of Canon HD lenses for new ND3 unit

NEP Supershooters has outfitted NBC’s newest HD mobile production unit, ND3, with Canon lenses.

Designed for production tasks that include everything from golf to NBC’s new premier NFL program “Sunday Night Football," the 1080i-format ND3 will depend on 21 Canon HD field and portable lenses to carry out its multipurpose assignment.

Outfitted with three Canon XJ100x9.3B IE-D (DIGISUPER 100xs) HD long field lenses, nine XJ86x9.3B IE-D (DIGISUPER 86xs) HD long field lenses, seven HJ22ex7.6B IRSE portable HD zoom lenses and two HJ11ex4.7B IRSE portable HD wide-angle lenses, the ND3 truck’s cameras have the capability to cover any major event in HDTV.

The Canon DIGISUPER 100xs is engineered to capture major sports and other events at telephoto distances with rock-solid stability for the viewing audience. Canon’s DIGISUPER 100xs and DIGISUPER 86xs (as well as the DIGISUPER 86 TELExs and DIGISUPER 75xs) feature Canon’s second-generation built-in optical Image Stabilizer (Shift-IS) technology, which is engineered to overcome the challenge of image-shaking at telephoto focal lengths.

The DIGISUPER 100xs, which has become a mainstay for football stadiums, race tracks and golf courses, is showing up in creative, unexpected applications, said NEP Broadcasting senior vice president of engineering George Hoover. For instance, the lens is sometimes positioned on the sidelines at a football game to capture an “eyeball-to-eyeball” view of the quarterback, he said.
