The Canon CJ20ex7.8B.

The Canon CJ20ex7.8B is a 2/3" portable 4K zoom lens for professional broadcast, offering a 20x zoom ratio and focal-length range from 7.8mm to 156mm.

First shown as a prototype at IBC 2015 in Amsterdam, the new lens enables the creation of high-resolution, high-impact 4K video content for a variety of appli-cations, including sporting events and news coverage, as well as documentaries and indoor and outdoor location shooting for serial dramas. Strengthening Can-on's 4K broadcast lens range for cameras employing 2/3" sensors, the versatile new lens will join the CJ12ex4.3B, a 2/3" portable 4K zoom lens with the world's widest focal length.

The new CJ20ex7.8B claims to achieve a high level of performance, making it suited for use with 4K broadcast cameras.

Through optimal lens positioning and precise component assembly, the CJ20ex7.8B achieves high-quality 4K resolution images from the centre to the pe-ripheral areas of the image field. Delivering superior colour reproduction, the lens allows professionals to create compelling ultra-high resolution video.

The new CJ20ex7.8B includes a built-in 2x extender, which even when shooting at the 312mm telephoto-end focal length, delivers superior optical performance to support use with 4K broadcast cameras.

Featuring a compact, lightweight body design, the lens delivers exceptional mobility in response to the needs of the broadcast industry, facilitating shoulder-mounted shooting and convenient transport.
