Shuttle Shot Function
Shuttle Shot is a Canon Technology that enhances production capabilities. At the touch of a button, this feature allows the operator to zoom back and forth instantly between any 2 positions. It can be used to zoom to the telephoto position to check focus and then return instantly to the original position or you can shuttle between any 2 zoom positions at any time.
This lens is smaller in size and lighter in weight, which allows ease of use when carried on a shoulder.
