Canon Debuts ‘4K Premium’ Box Lens

Canon announces the launch of the UJ27×6.5B IESD, a 2/3” lens for broadcasters needing outstandingly high resolution and contrast for UHD productions. The use of fluorite and UD glass, along with Canon’s lens coating and anti-reflection technologies, provides exceptional control over ghosting and flare; ideal for shooting outdoor sport in high dynamic range.

Canon's UJ27×6.5B IESDbox lens is able to deliver exceptional performance that surpasses 4K resolution. High contrast and high resolution is maintained from the image centre to the edges and is consistent in all wavelength regions of the B, G and R channels as well as in the wide frequency bands from HDTV to 4K, and even beyond.

The UJ27×6.5B IESD has a 27x optical zoom ratio, perfect for shooting sport where a mix of close up shots of the audience and long pan shots of the action is required. The lens also provides the ability to quickly change focus without losing viewing angles and, following Canon’s technological advancements to the inner focus system, focus breathing is kept to an absolute minimum. The lens has a 6.5-180mm focal length, plus a built-in 2x extender doubling the telephoto power, yet still maintaining exceptional resolution beyond 4K. 

UJ27×6.5B IESD Key Features:

  • •Premium 4K optical quality lens for high end broadcasting
  • •UD glass and fluorite elements to reduce distortion
  • •High-contrast, low-ghosting lens ideal for HDR images
  • •Reduced focus breathing thanks to CAFS technology
  • •Enhanced design for easy handling
