UHD DIGISUPER 122 (4K Premium)

Broadcast lens with 122x zoom, outstanding 4K premium optical performance

The UHD DIGISUPER 122 is a premium 4K broadcast lens that supports 2/3-inch cameras. Boasting an astounding 122x optical zoom that covers focal length range from 8.2mm (wide-angle end) to 1000mm (telephoto end; up to 2000mm with the built-in 2x extender), this lens promises dramatic footage of sports and documentaries. 4K performance is further supported by dependable image stabilization (IS), which reduces vibration over a wide range of frequencies and accurately identifies panning, making it possible to use the lens with IS always on. A new feature, “Bokeh Effect”, has been added to the lens, allowing the cameraman to have servo control over the focus on the wide end of the image with the use of an optional macro controller.

  • Image Stabilizer (IS) and Constant Angle Focusing System (CAFS)
  • Virtual Output Connector

Features

122x optical zoom, built-in 2x extender

Featuring the world first 122x optical zoom ratio, the UHD DIGISUPER 122 is able to cover a focal length range not possible previously. Starting at 8.2mm and zooming in to 1000mm (2000mm with extender on), all while retaining the same body size as its predecessor,
UHD DIGISUPER 122 is the perfect lens for sports and outdoor broadcast application. In addition, the Constant Angle Focus System (CAFS) counteracts focus breathing (the shift in angle-of-view that often occurs during focusing), reducing the changes in angle-of-view that occur due to focusing down to near zero.

Excellent reduction of flare and ghosting with ASC coating

With the various Canon optical technologies employed in the
UHD DIGISUPER 122, you can only expect outstanding 4K image quality. The generous use of UD and fluorite lenses minimizes chromatic aberrations such as loss of sharpness and color fringing on the edges, providing excellent color reproduction to every corner of the image. The UHD DIGISUPER 122 is also one of the first broadcast lenses to feature ASC coating, which has special refractive qualities to reduce flare and ghosting, resulting in the lens’ improved ability to handle outdoor scenes from day to night even under unpredictable lighting conditions. With this, HDR shooting can now be more authentic than ever.

Dependable IS system that maintains 4K performance

The optical shift-type IS image stabilizer system ensures excellent 4K footage, even when shooting at the 2000mm telephoto end (when using the built-in 2x extender). It offers high control over a range of vibration frequencies, from soft swaying when the camera is mounted in a high position to the higher-frequency vibrations that occur when shooting in stadiums or heavy winds. It is able to accurately identify panning and correct even the slightest swing-back, improving operability in a wider range of scenes. Dependable enough to leave on regardless of the shooting scene, the IS system promises 4K performance even when shooting at super telephoto focal lengths where powerful image stabilization is a necessity.
