Canon HJ14ex4.3 IRSE-A (HJ14) super wide angle 2/3inch HD zoom lens 4.3-60mm with 2x extender & e-digital drive unit w/encoder. Canon’s HJ11ex4.7B has been the most popular HDTV wide-angle lens in the world and is known for its outstanding optical performance and ease of operation. Now, Canon is introducing unique technology with the launch of our most advanced HDTV wide-angle lens, the HJ14ex4.3B. In addition to the lens’s™ new design, the HJ14ex4.3B realised the widest angle among all the broadcast lenses while maintaining or even improving its exceptional optical performance. Moreover, the newly developed drive-unit will provide further more ease of operation which will strongly support the camera operator.
Widest lens in the TV industry
HJ14ex4.3 features the widest angle in the industry by the focal length of 4.3mm and the angular field of view of 96.3Â°(2/3, 16:9) at wide end. Not only the lens provides a wide angle picture, it also features a 14x zoom ratio reaching to 60mm(120mm with extender), which greatly expands the video expression.
Improved optical performance
Although the HJ14x features a wide angle and a high zoom ratio, by using the latest 3D design technology and large aspherical elements which creates an unique optical layout, the lens maintains high resolution from the center to each corner of the picture which even exceeds its predecessor’s performance. Moreover, by adopting a new coating technology and the new simulation system, eminent is how much the focus breathing has been diminished and how much the light quantity of the picture corners has been maintained. The HJ14ex also features an ultimately minimized color aberration, ghosting and picture distortion, regardless to the enormous improvement of its specifications.
Improve the operability and lighten the physical fatigue of cameraman
Besides the exceptional optical performance, another remarkable character of this new lens is its newly designed drive unit. With the goal of pursuing ease of operation, Canon has reached a new design based on human ergonomics, refined by a long term research and testing.
