The Canon e-HDxs HJ14ex4.3B ITS-RE is a wide angle 14x 2/3" servo lens built to offer high performance in HDTV programming. The lens is lightweight and can be relied upon under harsh conditions. Additionally, it's equipped with features such as internal focus and shuttle-shot programmable positioning. The focal-length range is 4.3-60mm with a minimum object distance of 3' (0.9 m) and comes equipped with a manually operated 2x extender. The extender can be coupled with an external control unit.
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. The extender can easily be manipulated through the use of an optional control unit.
