Canon’s UHDgc CJ18eX28B built-in 2x extender achieves 1000mm focal length

Canon UHDgc CJ18eX28B B lens: 1000mm for broadcast

The Canon 4K UHDgc CJ18ex28B 28-500mm is one of the two world-first portable zoom lenses for 2/3” format 4K broadcast cameras, the other being the CJ15eX8.5B  also introduced at NAB 2019.

The CJ18ex28B offers an 18x zoom ratio covering a focal length range from 28mm at the wide end to 500mm at the telephoto, achieving a focal length of 1000mm at the telephoto end when using the built-in 2x extender.

The ability to record detail in high-quality from afar makes this lens perfect for shooting documentary, wildlife and live events. In addition to this, the lens design has achieved the same compact, lightweight body as conventional HD lenses, enabling dynamic shooting styles with outstanding portability – ensuring the excellent mobility required for broadcasters filming outside a studio and when endurance is key.
