Looking to address the demand for affordable, high-quality 4K UHD lenses for television news and sports, at the 2019 NAB Show Canon U.S.A. will unveil two new portable-zoom 4K UHD broadcast lenses as new additions to its UHDgc series. The new lenses, the CJ18ex28B and CJ15ex8.5B, are made for UHD cameras with 2/3-inch sensors. The company said both lenses provide 4K UHD imaging quality at a price point that’s less expensive, something the broadcast market asked for.
The ever-increasing use of small broadcast quality HD cameras with wide angle or fisheye lenses have become increasingly prevalent. Their use can be found in live broadcast applications such as sport, ENG, wildlife programming, and reality TV, with non-broadcast use in medical, forensics/security and online gaming.
When a company markets two products that seem similar, both targeting much the same task, but one costs significantly less, it’s reasonable to assume the less expensive product will offer significantly fewer features.
