The Canon CJ45 ex9.7B is an ultra-high zoom 4K lens offering best in class zoom range. It’s ultra-high 45x zoom ratio gives you a focal range of 9.7mm to 437mm (up to 874mm using the lens’ built-in 2x extender).
Canon CJ45 – A perfect commuting lens
The portability and wide focal range of the CJ45 offer you maximum flexibility of use. Paired with the Sony HDC-4300 or the Grass Valley LDX 86N, the impressive zoom capabilities of the Canon CJ45 allow you to capture a wide array of shots without the need for a heavy box lens.
This makes it a perfect ‘commuting’ lens, and ideal for golf and a wide range of live sports production applications. The CJ45 would also slot perfectly into EFP broadcast applications like wildlife/nature, live events, documentaries, and helicopter/aerial shooting.
Expanded focal range, enhanced zoom and iris speeds, superior optics
The release of the CJ45 sees Canon complete the upgrade of its highly popular HD lens line-up to UHD. A direct replacement for the workhorse HJ40, it adds a series of enhancements to its HD predecessor. As well as Canon’s supreme 4K optics, the lens offers a wider and longer focal range than the HJ40. It also boasts increased zoom and iris speeds.
Canon has utilised fluorite and UD glass in the construction of the lens. This helps to minimise chromatic aberration and ensures you reliably capture vibrant, precise images.
