|The World's First Triple Digit Zoom Lens With Image Stabilizer
|Canon has always been the pioneer in the history of broadcast lens design. And now, Canon launches the first broadcast 100x zoom lens, named the DIGISUPER 100 xs, the world’s first triple digit zoom lens. Triple digit zoom lens performance was a barrier that was never expected to be broken, and it took Canon’s unique technology to make it happen.
The DIGISUPER 100 xs is the lens of the best grade in the past produced the DIGISUPER series. With the advancement of Digital terrestrial broadcasting and satellite broadcasting, the market is requiring a dramatic increase in sports and large event programming. In order to acquire the largest audiences possible in this diversifying industry, it will be necessary to create more realistic and powerful pictures and the DIGISUPER 100 xs will surely meet all your demands.
: The letters "" come from the word "Excess", an indication that the new generation of lenses exceeds all conventional lens specifications and concepts by using breakthrough technologies. allows for higher specification lenses in smaller and lighter packages. Knowing the requirements for HDTV, Canon has developed the DIGISUPER 100 xs to meet and exceed those demanding performance specifications. Further enhancing the DIGISUPER 100 xs series is Canon’s latest built-in stabilization method, Shift-IS, a standard feature of both lenses.
HD Optical Performance with a 100x Zoom Ratio
The DIGISUPER 100 xs is a powerful field lens that utilizes Canon’s unique optical design concept, the "Power Optical System" with "-Element". By adopting this concept and advanced technology, The DIGISUPER 100 xs has improved the range of focal length from 9.3mm-930mm and also has succeeded in compensating the chromatic aberration to a very high accuracy.
The superior optical capacity also allows the lens to offer a maximum relative aperture of 1.7 and a minimum object distance of 3.0 meters.
Moreover, the DIGISUPER100 xs is almost the same size and weight as the DIGISUPER 86 xs. Canon considers that, no matter how prominent the specifications, if the lens is huge and massive, it is meaningless as a production tool.
-Element & POWER OPTICAL SYSTEM
Canon has developed this breakthrough optical design concept using a newly developed optical element in the most effective way.
We have named the new design concept the "Power Optical System" which achieves higher specifications and quality using the new optical
"-Element" which virtually eliminates aberrations.
"CAFS" Constant Angle Focusing System
The zooming effect of focus is the phenomena where the picture size (angle of view) changes when focusing (breathing). However, a 32bit CPU calculates and controls the zoom when focusing in order to counteract these phenomena.
Thus the DIGISUPER 100 xs have ZERO zooming effect of focus throughout the whole zoom range.
Available optionally is the dual aspect ratio switching system, "CROSSOVER", for switchable 16:9/4:3 cameras.
