Premium Standard ENG lens

The HJ17ex6.2B IRSE / IASE represents a further advancement of the HDxs Series, already the premier series of HDTV lenses.

The HJ17ex6.2B IRSE / IASE Premium Standard is a new addition to Canon's premier HDTV lens lineup, with a broad focal length range from 6.2mm to 106mm (212mm with extender).

Outstanding optical performance of the Canon HDxs Series

The HDxs Series makes optimum use of original Canon optical elements, Hi-UD (Hi Index Ultra Low Dispersion) glass, large-diameter high-precision aspherical lenses and more, with their potential maximized through designs employing Canon’s original “Power Optical System” optical design technology.

At the same time, the HDxs Series succeeds in suppressing ghosting and flaring by employing ray simulation technology in conjunction with original Canon spectral coating. Its amalgamation of advanced Canon optical technologies also minimizes curvature of field, chromatic aberration, chromatic aberration of magnification, and axial chromatic aberration throughout the entire field regardless of focal length or subject distance, stably exhibiting peak optical performance.

Shoot closer, shoot wider. Improved mobility for camera crews in diverse situations

When covering news stories on-site, camera crews must work with a limited supply of equipment and react rapidly to various changes in subject distance and focal length. For ENG and production of documentaries, the HJ17ex6.2B IRSE / IASE enables vivid shooting from a distance and when ultra-close to the subject to make the scene come alive, or shooting in small rooms where distance from the subject cannot be attained. The HJ17ex6.2B IRSE / IASE is a single lens capable of flexible operation, enabling the much needed versatility required by camera crews.

Superb optical performance, wider focal length and shorter M.O.D. (minimum object distance):

With focal lengths ranging from wide-end to tele-end, and at subject distances ranging from infinite distance to extreme close-up (in which case optical performance generally suffers), the HJ17ex6.2B IRSE / IASE minimizes optical aberration across the entire screen and exhibits superb optical performance throughout the field.

The HJ17ex6.2B IRSE / IASE provides the same magnification (17x) as our well-established HDTV production lens, the HJ17ex7.6B IRSE A/IASE A, while achieving a wider focal length of 6.2mm.

M.O.D. has been shortened by approximately 30% (0.4m) compared to the HJ17ex7.6B IRSE A/IASE A.
