Canon lenses have a long tradition of being extremely reliable and have been the front runners in breakthrough technology innovation for a number of years. The innovations that this leader in digital imaging solutions provides to our field will be recognized at the 69th Annual Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards for its complete line of 4K field production zoom lenses. Featured below is one of the award winning product(s) CINE-SERVO 50-1000mm T5.0-8.9 Ultra-Telephoto Zoom from our friends at Canon.
This is the ONE and ONLY 4K ultra-telephoto zoom lens on the market with the longest throw. Since it’s launch back in 2015, this lens has been the “go to” for industry professionals and videographers alike, in meeting the demands in the field with such programs like National Geographic’s “Earth Live”.
“The CINE-SERVO 50-1000mm lens was the ideal piece of glass for what we were trying to capture while shooting Earth Live,” said Al Berman, Executive Producer, Earth Live. “Often when shooting wildlife in their natural habitat, videographers don’t have the opportunity to be up close and personal with their subjects, but Canon’s CINE-SERVO 50-1000mm made it as if we were right there with them. It’s probably the best wildlife lens on the market.”
