The Canon HJ18ex28B ITS-ME is a high quality ultra-telephoto 18x zoom lens for professional 2/3" remote video cameras. This model is highly versatile and can be used in a variety of professional applications, including teleconferencing, distance learning, and specialized broadcasting including sports coverage. The focal-length range is 28-500mm with a minimum object distance of 7.2' (2.2 m). Additionally, the lens comes equipped with a manually operated 2x extender which can be coupled with an external control unit.

Video Conferencing Remote Control
The lens can fit a remotely controlled and monitored pan and tilt system. This lens is particularly suited for the highest quality industrial cameras, as well as high definition broadcast including sports coverage.
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.
Integrated 2x Extender
For instant close-up images the lens has a switch that 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.
Internal Focus for Ultimate Versatility
The optics are produced 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 and elimination of chromatic aberration.
