Canon HJ24ex7.5B IRSE Portable HDTV telephoto lens with class-leading zoom ratio and focal distance
A class-leading portable telephoto lens with a 24x zoom and unrivalled focal length of 180mm, the HJ24ex7.5B offers exceptional HDTV performance with enhanced image quality, ease of use and operability.
Created specifically for the world of TV production, the HJ24ex7.5B’s enhanced optical design allows broadcasters and producers to go both wider and closer on their shoots, with the new 24x zoom giving added freedom whilst on set or location. A truly versatile lens, the HJ24ex7.5B is perfect for a diverse range of broadcast environments, including studio sets, live production and newsgathering.
Class-leading telephoto lens
A breakthrough lens that is first in its class* for zoom ratio and focal distance, this portable wide-angle, HD lens offers a 24x optical zoom and a versatile focal length range of 7.5-180 mm (up to 360mm with a built in extender). Competitively priced, it is ideal for a wide range of studio and ENG applications including news, sports, and documentaries.
Advanced optical performance
Building dramatically on the outstanding optical performance of its predecessor, (the popular HJ22ex7.6B) the HJ24ex7.5B offers high resolution from centre to the edges in both close–up and telephoto shots and provides excellent aberration correction over the entire zoom range for sharper and clearer images. The combination of excellent specifications and high image quality makes possible a broad range of creative expression.
Compact and lightweight with improved handling
Compared with its predecessor, the HJ24ex7.5B is noticeably lighter – weighing just 1.78kg - and offers a comprehensive improvement in handling with excellent manoeuvrability, ease of operation and reduced physical stress during prolonged shooting. You’ll appreciate the user-friendly design as soon as you place it on your shoulder. The centre of gravity is closer to the mount, lessening strain on the hands and elbows and allowing easy movement of the camera in any situation. An easier to use settings menu adds to overall operator satisfaction.
The HJ24ex7.5B incorporates an enhanced digital drive unit that is mounted to the lens at an optimum angle for comfort and balance and offers advanced operation and systems support. Start-up is fast thanks to a high-performance encoder that supports communication with 2/3” HDTV cameras equipped with aberration correction functionality, without the need to initialise the lens. More accurate detection of positional information also enables more exact image reproduction and simple virtual set up. Three 20-pin connectors enable high-definition virtual video output even during full-servo operation.
Reduced power consumption
The HJ24ex7.5B can operate even longer on battery power thanks to an approximately 20% reduction in power consumption while the zoom, focus, and iris functions are not being operated. This allows shooting for extended periods and further enhances the mobility of the camera operator.
