Director of photography Kevin Ebel depended on the depth of field offered by Canon’s HD cine zoom lenses while shooting in tight spaces for the new digital short “Tether Me.”

Canon has announced that since its 2004 introduction of the DIGISUPER 22xs lens (model XJ22x7.3B IE-D), TV production companies and broadcasters have purchased the lenses as part of their transition to HDTV.

Canon’s compact studio HD lens provides “box lens” optical performance in a compact size scaled to portable HD cameras.

The DIGISUPER 22xs Compact Studio HD Lens is a high-end optical system based upon Canon’s classic studio lens design principles but carefully constrained to a physical size and weight (13.4lbs) commensurate with that of contemporary portable production cameras.

The lens offers Canon’s exclusive eDrive system. Together with its optical encoders, eDrive provides lens-status information on an easy-to-read display that accurately reports settings for f-stop, focal length, focusing distance and other parameters.
