The Canon KH20x6.4 KRSD Portable 1/2-inch HDTV ENG 20x Lens is a long focal length remote control portable 1/2-inch HDTV lens. This lens is intended for users utilizing an HD acquisition system, and to support a diversity of broadcast, professional, business and industrial remote control applications. This lens is designed to work in conjunction with the new 1/2-inch image format HDTV cameras that are used for a number of special applications.

The KH20x6.4 KRSD has a high sensitivity of F1.4 over a 20x zoom range (falling modestly to F2.0 at full telephoto). This high sensitivity offers great flexibility in shooting in low light situations. It has a wide 57.1 degree horizontal field of view and weighs a mere 2.8 lbs. The KH20x6.4 KRSD offers a balanced MTF profile over the entire image plane at an F4.0 aperture setting. Relative light distribution was optimized for F2.8 and above, and this uniformity of brightness across the image plane combines with the high contrast and strong picture sharpness to produce crisp clear HD pictures

F1.4 Sensitivity

The high sensitivity of the lens offers great versatility to you by allowing it to be used in very low lit situations.

Shuttle Shot

At the touch of a button, this feature allows you to zoom back and forth instantly between any two 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 two zoom positions at any time.

Internal Focus

The KH20x6.4 KRSD uses a floating optical system to better control chromatic aberrations.

question

I have this lens and am having issues with the shuttle shot system. When I hit the VTR button, the lens shuttles instead of recording. Any suggestions?
Asked by: Bryan L.
There must be some electronic or mechanical overlap occurring. Since the VTR and Shuttle buttons are so close together, check that you are pressing correctly and that the rubber buttons act independently. If nothing can be resolved, then please contact your local Canon service center.

question

Will this lens work with the Blackmagic studio camera without an adapter or is an adapter needed?
Asked by: Justin E.
Sorry, but this cannot work in any fashion with the Blackmagic Studio Camera. The image it produces is simply too small to cover the sensor. You need a 2/3 lens with a 2x extender plus a B4 to MFT adapter.
