The UHD-DIGISUPER 122 AF is a new field zoom lens with autofocus for 2/3-inch sensor 4K broadcast cameras Canon states they are the world’s widest angle, longest focal length, and largest zoom. Along with the new lens, Canon will also release two new focus demand accessories. The Canon FDJ-S31 and FDJ-S41.
The UHD-DIGISUPER 122 AF is Canon’s new flagship field zoom lens for 4K broadcast cameras, and the company’s first 4K broadcast lens to include built-in AF. With the addition of AF with high-speed and high-accuracy subject tracking, this new lens enables the capture of high-resolution video in 4K that demands extremely precise AF, such as sporting events, concerts, and other indoor and outdoor events.
Canon’s new UHD-DIGISUPER 122 AF features a zoom range of 8.2 mm at the wide end and 1,000 mm at the telephoto end — a 122x zoom ratio, the world’s most powerful zoom range for AF-equipped field zoom lenses for 2/3-inch sensor 4K broadcast cameras. In addition, the lens employs a built-in 2x extender that allows users to increase the zoom range two-fold, featuring a 16.4 mm focal length at the wide-angle end and a 2,000 mm focal length at the telephoto end.
Alongside the new lens, Canon will also release two new focus demand models for AF-equipped lenses used with HD or 4K broadcast cameras. The Canon FDJ-S31 and FDJ-S41 focus demand accessories enable focus control and provide a variety of powerful support capabilities, including the ability to switch between three sizes of AF frames, move the AF frame within the screen, AF mode switching, and three different focus curve modes.
The Canon UHD-DIGISUPER 122 AF lens and Canon FDJ-S31 and FDJ-S41 focus demand accessories are all scheduled to be available in early July 2022.
