Video Conferencing Remote Control
The HJ17ex7.6 ITS-ME 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 Canon HJ17ex7.6 ITS-ME 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.
Square hood reduces flares and ghosting.
Quiet and fast servo control of zoom, focus and iris.
An External Extender Control Unit is optionally available.
Compact, lightweight frame.
