The Canon CINE-SERVO 50-1000mm T5.0-8.9 with PL Mount is carefully designed to provide the functionality and form factor of a broadcast, ENG-style-servo zoom lens with the optical precision of a cinema zoom. This lens is suitable for 4K acquisition and is designed for cinema cameras with Super 35-sized sensors.
The Canon CINE-SERVO 50-1000mm T5.0-8.9 with PL Mount has a detachable drive mechanism and support for rod management. It is able to be removed, to make it equally easy to be used by a solo operator, or a full production team.
The lens features a 20x optical zoom and a focal length range of 50 to 1000mm with a maximum T stop of 5.0 at the wide end. The lens features a built-in 1.5x extender providing a 75 to 1500mm zoom range, capable of supporting 4K resolution
20x Zoom Range
With a 20x zoom range from 50-1000mm this lens is exceptionally long for a lens that supports the Super35 format. You will also find 1.5x extender built into the lens with which the zoom range can be extended to 75 to 1500mm while still supporting 4K resolution.
Suitable for Shoulder Mounted Camera Operation
The Canon CINE-SERVO 50-1000mm T5.0-8.9 with PL Mount features a control layout well suitable for single camera operator use or using the camera where the lens is mounted in a shoulder-mounted position. The zoom servo is controlled by rocker with the right hand and focus and iris can be operated manually with the left hand.
Variable Speed Servo
While filming sports and fast-moving action, high-speed servo-driven and iris are available. Also, slower speed settings for more detailed work are also available. With this variability, the zoom duration can be set to last anywhere from 1.5 to 180 seconds.
Supports Virtual Image Data Output
With this lens it is possible to connect an external system to collect 16-bit virtual image data via three 20-pin connectors below the servo.
Standard Broadcast 12-Pin Camera Interface Cable
The lens features the same 12-pin camera interface for power and serial data as found on regular Canon broadcast lenses.
Broadcast Lens-Style Focus Ring
Further than the servo zoom, focus, and iris, another ENG-derived feature is the knurled focus ring that is also limited to 180° rotation.
As on broadcast lenses, the flange may be adjusted for transition between different camera systems with different flange focal distances.
Fully Closing Iris
The iris may be closed fully for setting the camera black balance or other calibration procedures.
Detachable Drive Unit
The Canon CINE-SERVO 50-1000mm T5.0-8.9 with PL Mount can be used in shooting styles where full manual control is prefered, by removing the servo motors and zoom rocker housing from the lens
Support for Cinema Lens Accessories
Compatible with a wide range of accessories common in the cine industry, like matte boxes, follow focuses, and electronic and wireless controllers. The focus ring features both a 0.8mm MOD cine standard gear ring as well as a 0.5 Canon MOD ring, the zoom features a 0.5 Canon MOD, and there is also a 0.5 MOD iris gear.
Compatible with Lens Support
Due to the weight of the lens, it is normally needed to support the lens using a 19mm rod system. The Canon 50-1000mm makes that possible to allow you to attach a lens support.
Lens-to-Camera Metadata Transmission
The Canon CINE-SERVO 50-1000mm T5.0-8.9 with PL Mount directly communicates with your Cinema EOS camera through the lens interface. This allows lens metadata such as zoom settings and iris to be recorded in the camera.
You will also find a standard 12-pin broadcast camera interface which transmits zoom, focus and iris date to the camera or other connected device via this connection.
11-Blade Aperture Design
The 11-aperture blade lens design creates lens flares and orbs that produce a bokeh effect as close to round as possible.
Aspherical Lens Technology
All spherical lenses refract more in the periphery than the centre, this makes it impossible to be sharp across the entire frame. As with an aspherical, a much more focused image is provided. Furthermore, there are fewer elements required in the lens design which makes it sharper and also reduces the physical size and weight of the lens.
Canon Fluorite Coating
The Canon CINE-SERVO 50-1000mm T5.0-8.9 with PL Mount features Canon's special fluorite coating, reason being that glass lenses can never be totally free from aberration. The fluorite coating features an anomalous characteristic that effectively reduces the aberration below what is possible with optical glass alone.
