The new Canon UHD-DIGISUPER 51 achieves a level of superlative optical performance from the center to the peripheral areas of image field to support 8K broadcast cameras. Canon’s first 8K field zoom lens, the UHD-DIGISUPER 51 realises a focal length range of 15.5 mm to 790 mm, the world’s longest1 focal length in its class, and the one of the world’s-highest* zoom ratio of 51x.
In addition to realising a high zoom ratio, the lens maintains similar handling to existing field zoom lenses for 4K cameras that employ 2/3-inch sensors, making it possible to transition to 8K production while retaining the same shooting style as 4K production.
The lens makes possible the capture of realistic, high-resolution video in a wide range of scenarios, including indoor and outdoor sports broadcasting or in medium-size broadcasting vans.
