Video Conferencing Remote Control
The HJ18ex28B-ITS can fit a remotely controlled and monitored CCTV pan and tilt system. This lens is particularly suited for the highest quality industrial cameras.
High Definition Ready
Many high definition cameras are hamstrung by insufficient optics. Remote 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.
The lens has added capability when zooming, using the shuttle shot switch. At the touch of a button the lens can move to a pre-programmed point, going back and forth. This can be used both creatively while providing a no hassle way of verifying focus.
Internal Focus for Ultimate Versatility
The Canon HJ18ex28B-ITS is made for the highest quality professional video cameras. The front lens element is stationary and can be used with a matte box for greater lens flair protection as well as a wide array of square and rectangular filters.
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.
