The HJ11ex4.7B utilized breakthrough technologies and powerful computer-aided design techniques to produce a very wide-angle HDTV lens in a modest 4.3 lb package. It is a design directly responding to the expressed creative desires of broadcasters and HD producers for a truly versatile HD acquisition system. The optional flexibility of Canon’s Crossover aspect ratio switching system makes it a superb performer for both 16:9 widescreen and standard 4:3 image formats.
High Definition Ready – Many high definition cameras are hamstrung by insufficient optics. Electronic Field Production (EFP) lenses traditionally have been built to accommodate standard definition. This lens is designed specifically with high definition in mind. The optics increase fidelity, making sure HD footage is crystal clear.
Improved Image Quality – The lens element design greatly reduces aberrations and image distortions. These advances contribute to more balanced imaging from center to edge throughout the aperture range.
Integral 2x Extender – For instant close-up shots, the lens has a switch which inserts an element that doubles the focal length at any point in the zoom range. Instead of using the zoom function, the extender gives immediate close-up images.
