Canon expands line with 2/3in Pro-Video lens series

Canon Broadcast & Communications has introduced two new 2/3in Pro-Video lens series for a wide range of business, industrial, and broadcast production applications, including POV (point of view) and robotic cameras.

The new YJ20x8.5B series is available in three configurations: the YJ20x8.5B KRS, YJ20x8.5B IRS (2X extender model) and YJ20x8.5B KTS remote control model. The YJ13x6B series is also available in three configurations: the YJ13x6B KRS wide-angle lens, the YJ13x6B IRS 2X extender model, and the YJ13x6B KTS remote-control model.

All of these lenses feature Canon’s Internal Focus technology (IFpro), which enhances optical performance and provides multiple user benefits. The lenses also feature Canon’s exclusive Shuttle Shot function, a servo system that brings an entirely new range of value-added creativity to hand-held acquisition systems.

The new YJ20x8.5B and YJ13x6B series lenses also incorporate Canon’s newly developed optical materials in combination with the latest lens-element design innovations and multilayer coatings. The YJ20x8.5B series long-zoom portable lens and the new YJ13x6B series wide-angle portable lenses feature a horizontal field of view of 54.7 degrees and 72.5 degrees, respectively.
