The 8.2-164mm f/1.9-2.7 HD ENG Zoom Lens from Canon offers a wide-angle focal length of 8.2mm. It is suitable for wedding, corporate, and educational videographers. This lens is also appropriate for broadcast news productions, which require a good level of performance, delivering high-caliber production value to your projects.
The lens features dispersion glass and other optical materials and coatings. Chromatic aberration is suppressed across the entire lens surface, enabling sharp images with minimal distortion at any object distance. An optimal balance of resolution and contrast in peripheral areas of the image enables you to realize sharp and clear pictures. The multi-layer optical coatings effectively reduce ghost and flares from the sun, headlights, or other bright light sources.
The lens features an advanced drive unit that offers an easy-to-grip, operator-friendly use. The drive unit enables higher zoom speed (as little as 1 second of end-to-end zooming) ensuring that you will never miss a shot during field production. The lens also provides steady, smooth operation in super-slow zooming. Another advantage is quiet servo-operation, thanks to its optimum servo-motor construction, which also achieves fast zoom speed. This lens has been engineered using 3D-CAD simulation to eliminate servo-motor noise issues, enabling cameramen to zoom quickly and quietly to capture the moment.
The Shuttle Shot function helps you to pre-store zoom positions for instant recall on demand. Simple by design, the Shuttle Shot makes camera operation more reliable, supporting pinpoint zooming and ease of repetition. You have to simply press a dedicated button to store desired Shuttle Shot zoom positions.
