Canon reveals its first two 8K broadcast lenses, the UHD-DIGISUPER 51 and 7x10.7 KAS S
Canon has taken the wraps off the new UHD-DIGISUPER 51 (SP51x15.5B) and 7x10.7 KAS S, its first two 8K broadcast lenses. The models are compatible with 8K broadcast cameras that feature 1.25" sensors, according to Canon, which notes that this equipment has become more popular in documentary production and sports coverage.
The UHD-DIGISUPER 51 8K model is a 51x field zoom lens with what Canon says is the longest focal range in the world at 15.5 - 790mm. An integrated 1.5x extender brings the total telephoto focal length to 1185mm. Canon says this new model offers high-end quality 'from the center to the periphery of the screen.'
Joining the zoom lens is Canon's new 7x10.7 KAS S 8K portable 7x zoom lens with a 10.7 - 75mm focal range. As with the UHD-DIGISUPER model, the 7x10.7 KAS S 8K lens features the 'same operability' as its 4K and 2/3" HDTV lens counterparts, according to the company.
The 7x10.7 KAS S model will arrive first; customers will be able to special order it starting in January 2020. The UHD-DIGISUPER 51 will likewise be offered as a special order, but not until May 2020. Pricing information hasn't been revealed at this time.
