Canon Roll Out New HD Camera

Camera manufacturer, Canon, have expanded their family with the release of a new HD camera, which they claim is the ideal choice for the broadcasting sector and sets the new 'premium standard'.
Indeed the well-established Canon HJ17ex7.6B now has a brother – the Canon HJ17ex6.2B. With its focal length of 6.2~106mm, extra wide angle and a shorter MOD, the newcomer takes on the role as the 'Premium Standard' 2/3" HD camera lens and further strengthens the line-up of Canon’s HJ lenses.
The HJ17ex6.2B has been described as the ideal choice for the ENG (Electronic News Gathering) broadcasting sector. It's 18% wider than the HJ17ex7.6B and is the widest in the Standard lens class.
The manufactuer have said that it’s set as a high performing solution for when a wider and closer shot is required, providing both convenience and the opportunity to capture creative images.
