Canon to unveil new HD telephoto lens at NAB2006

The new HJ18ex28B IASE Super Telephoto HD lens weighs less than 6lbs and requires no supporter for maximum mobility.

Canon’s latest advance in HD lenses is a Super Telephoto eHDxs portable lens with a focal-length range of 28mm to 500mm (up to 1000mm with the built-in 2X extender) and it weighs less than 6lbs and requires no supporter. This allows makes it well suited for sports, stabilized helicopter mounts, documentaries, special events or live reality programming.

One of eight lenses in the portable Canon eHDxs line, it includes technologies that address the demands of HD lens design in terms of ergonomics, features, price, size and weight. The lens features Canon's Enhanced Digital eDrive as well as a built-in focus motor in addition to the zoom and iris motors traditionally found in portable ENG/EFP lenses.
