Take a more detailed look into the UHD DIGISUPER 86 (UJ86X9.3B)
The UHD-DIGISUPER 86 (UJ86X9.3B) is the flagship of Canon’s 2/3” 4K lens range. This groundbreaking 2/3” 4K broadcast field zoom lens puts the emphasis on achieving the very finest image quality from your 4K camera. An 86x zoom and 9.3-800mm focal length (up to 1600mm with the built in 2x extender) deliver stunning optical quality beyond 4K. As 4K gains ground with broadcasters, this lens sets a new standard for capturing stunning quality footage in environments where a large zoom ratio and depth of field management are important: such as sporting events and concerts.
Beyond-4K resolution and high contrast are sustained uniformly from the centre to the edge of the image thanks to Canon’s proprietary optical design technologies. Colours are equally consistent in all wavelength regions of the B, G and R channels and the 4K/beyond-4K frequency bands. Powerful aberration correction features prevent colour bleeding while minimising ghosting and flare. Colours are uniformly reproduced even in the corners of images – creating a visibly superior image, especially when viewed on a large screen.
4K shooting is intolerant of even the smallest camera shake. So the UHD-DIGISUPER 86 (UJ86X9.3B) features the best of Canon’s optical and servo technologies to stabilise your footage and maintain beyond-4K performance, even with image stabilisation engaged. So from smooth panning shots to beating low or high frequency vibration, your beyond-4K quality remains consistent.
Operation is straightforward, and great results are easy to achieve, thanks to the UHD-DIGISUPER 86 (UJ86X9.3B)’s intelligent new design. Canon’s accurate focus demands enable the operator to keep subjects in focus: even in challenging situations like sports broadcasts when long focus is used and a shallow depth of field must be managed.
The lens’ stylish appearance and prominent 4K logo make a great impression on set or location.
There’s no need to change your shooting style when you upgrade from HD to the UHD-DIGISUPER 86 (UJ86X9.3B). Its size and weight are comparable to a 2/3” HD lens despite its beyond-4K resolution. So there’s no need to get to know new techniques and systems in order to enjoy beyond-4K quality. There’s also no requirement to invest in new accessories, because the servo modules and zoom and focus demands for your existing HD Canon field lenses are fully compatible.
It’s easy to use the UHD-DIGISUPER 86 (UJ86X9.3B) in a virtual system, for example at major sporting events and concerts. It supports a wide range of virtual interfaces for acquiring positional information via either serial communication or output from the 16-bit high-resolution encoder. As it shares connectors and protocols with other Canon HD broadcast lenses, it’s easy to integrate into environments that use Canon HD field or portable lenses.
