Canon Launch New 2/3" 4K Field Lenses

News Image
Canon has launched two new 2/3" 4K field lenses; the UHD DIGISUPER 86 (UJ86x9.3B) and UHD DIGISUPER 90 (UJ90x9B).

Both are suitable for use within live broadcast production environments, with the UHD DIGISUPER 86 (UJ86x9.3B) surpassing 4K resolution.

4K image performance
The UHD DIGISUPER 86 (UJ86x9.3B) and UHD DIGISUPER 90 (UJ90x9B) are part of Canon's 2/3" 4K lens line-up, and provide professionals with the freedom to shoot live broadcast or sport events in 4K quality. In addition, the UHD DIGISUPER 86 (UJ86x9.3B) offers resolving power beyond 4K for the first time in this range of products.

The new lenses ensure high resolution from the image centre to the edges, at both telephoto and wide angle, due to their advanced optical construction. An increased use of fluorite and UD glass, combined with Canon's use of coatings, results in control over ghosting and flare with sharp, high contrast images supporting a large number of tones.

Focal range and versatility
The new models provide ultimate flexibility – the UHD DIGISUPER 86 (UJ86x9.3B) has an 86x zoom, with a focal range of 9.3mm to 800mm; and the UHD DIGISUPER 90 (UJ90x9B) goes even further to 90x, with a 9mm to 810mm focal range.

To ensure operators can capture a diverse range of scenes, both lenses feature a built-in 2x extender which doubles the telephoto power, while maintaining 4K resolution.

4K scenarios such as live sport do not tolerate shake. Thanks to Canon's optical Image Stabilizer technologies, the UHD DIGISUPER 86 (UJ86x9.3B) and UHD DIGISUPER 90 (UJ90x9B) deliver clear results, even during panning. This is vital for tracking moving subjects at sports matches and events, while compensating for swing-back. Furthermore, operators are able to keep subjects in focus, even in challenging situations; for example, when long focus but shallow depth of field is required.

Built to perform
The UHD DIGISUPER 86 (UJ86x9.3B) and UHD DIGISUPER 90 (UJ90x9B) feature a compact design, and are comparable in size and weight to current HD 2/3" field lenses, allowing easy integration into operating environments. Both lenses also incorporate a 20-pin connector for integration with virtual systems and are fully compatible with existing Canon accessories designed for 2/3" HD Canon field lenses.

UHD DIGISUPER 86 (UJ86x9.3B) specifications:
• High resolution 2/3" 4K field lens with 86x zoom and 9.3-800mm focal length (up to 1600mm with 2x built-in extender)
• Beyond-4K performance right to the edge of the image and throughout the zoom range
• High contrast and high resolution in all wavelength regions of the B, G and R channels in the 4K and beyond 4K frequency bands
• Similar size and weight to HD field lenses for seamless integration with existing HDTV technical setups and shooting environments
• Beyond 4K resolution, even with image stabilisation applied
• Full support for virtual systems thanks to the built-in 16-bit encoder
• Fully compatible with existing Canon HD field lens accessories

UHD DIGISUPER 90 (UJ90x9B) specifications:
• 2/3" 4K field lens with 90x zoom and 9-810mm focal length (up to 1620mm with the 2x built-in extender)
• 4K resolution from 2/3" 4K cameras that extends from the centre of the image
• Retain 4K resolution with image stabilisation applied
• Similar size and weight to HD field lenses enables integration with existing HDTV technical setups and shooting environments
• Sustained 4K performance with precise focus and high zoom ratio
• Cover wide spaces like large sports arenas with a single lens due to the wide focal range
• Full support for virtual systems thanks to the built-in 16-bit encoder
• Fully compatible with existing Canon HD field lens accessories
