Canon has introduced a 4K cine-servo, ultra-telephoto lens with world’s longest focal length.
The new product bolsters Canon’s cine servo lens line-up with the new CN20x50 – a high performance, ultra-telephoto zoom lens for sport and nature TV production.
The CN20x50 delivers superb image quality and creative control, and is the first lens of its type to combine a built-in 1.5x extender, 20x magnification and a removable servo drive, with a native 50-1000mm focal range that expands to 75-1500mm.
Designed to be a portable solution for broadcast productions using super 35mm cameras – whether HD, UHD or 4K – the CN20x50 offers quality and versatility.
It features a removable updated servo drive unit that enables an agile shooting style that’s difficult to achieve with typical cine lenses, the new cine-servo lens helps to meet growing demands for Ultra High Definition (UHD) resolution sport and nature television production.
Weighing 6.6kg, the CN20x50 is portable and lightweight and offers an unrivalled focal length and zooming capabilities for its class. It enables sport and documentary crews to capture footage at a distance, while maintaining the highest quality throughout the zoom range. The lens’s zoom range also reduces the volume of hardware that crews are required to carry.
