The Canon 8.6-820mm DIGISUPER 95 XJ95X8.6B Super-Telephoto Lens incorporates advanced lens technology for reproducing detailed images. A combination of a wide focal length of 8.6mm and a 95x zoom range helps in capturing far-off objects accurately and clearly.
Along with greater imaging capability, this lens also offers good optical performance and image stabilization. This lens also provides high-quality picture sharpness across the 16:9 HD image plane.
The aspherical lens technology and exotic glass materials help overcome lateral chromatic aberration, monochromatic aberrations, and geometric distortion. Canon's Advanced Stabilization System has an improved optical shift-type stabilizer that incorporates a sensor inside the lens for detecting vibrations. Compensating optics are then engaged at a high speed to cancel out any effect on the image.
This lens also features CAFS (Constant Angle Focusing System) to counteract breathing, a phenomenon that occurs while focusing or changing the picture size / angle of view. Via a 32-bit CPU, the zoom is calculated and controlled to give an almost zero zooming effect of focus.
This Super-Telephoto lens provides good tracking capability and pan and tilt functionality. With a 20-pin lens interface, it works effortlessly with a wide range of virtual systems.
From Wide Angle to Telephoto
Offers a wide range of imaging possibilities with its 95x zoom ratio and 8.6mm focal length
With extensive image-framing latitude, the lens can dramatically capture almost all possible on-site sensations, from the emotion of an entire crowded stadium to the facial expression of an individual player
Provides a wider angle of view, a higher zoom ratio, and unparalleled overall optical performance
Canon's proprietary large-diameter aspherical lens technology and exotic new glass materials effectively minimizes lateral chromatic aberration, monochromatic aberrations, and geometric distortion
Significant reduction of these aberrations further enhance the resolution and contrast in a manner that contributes to the capture of images having superb picture sharpness across the 16:9 HD image plane
CAFS (Constant Angle Focusing System)
32-bit CPU calculates and controls the zoom when focusing to counteract breathing (phenomena where picture size/ angle of view changes when focusing) and has almost zero zoom effect
Advanced Image Stabilization System
Minimizes image blurring at long focal lengths caused by the wind or slight vibrations transmitted through the stadium stand or tower
On detection of vibration, the compensating optics is shifted at high-speed to instantly deflect the light rays in a direction that cancels out the vibration's effect on the image
Optical Tracking Capability
High-resolution encoders to reproduce the camera operator's intended movements, whether a slow zoom or a preset sequence
Support for Many Virtual Systems
Equipped with high-performance zoom, focus, and iris encoders
Multiple supports for encoder outputs, analog outputs, and serial outputs, it can work with many kinds of virtual systems
Easily adapts to existing virtual systems because it comes standard equipped with 20-pin lens interface
