Canon is known worldwide for their high quality lenses and optical technology. Recently Canon has introduced a whole new line of lenses – bridging the gap between high quality still photography lenses and cinema lenses.
The Compact-Servo family of lenses are a new 4K Super 35mm lens category in the Cinema EOS lineup. They combine the qualities from our EF lenses such as a light weight, compact size, integrated autofocus and excellent optical quality with the professional video features of our Cinema lenses, such as minimal focus breathing and parfocal zooming. These features, along with high level 4K optical performance and functionality such as integrated servo controls for zoom, iris and focus for electronic control from a camera, optional remote controller and optional ZSG-C10 Zoom Servo Grip make the Compact-Servo lenses ideal for those seeking the traditional lens operational practices associated with professional cinematography. The COMPACT-SERVO 18–80mm T4.4 EF and the COMPACT-SERVO 70–200mm T4.4 EF offer professional video functionality all at an affordable price, making them ideal for a wide range of video applications including documentary, cinema, news gathering, wedding and other video production.
Take this unique opportunity to learn about the newest lenses in the Canon cinema family, and get the hands on experience needed to find if it’s the right lens for your next project.
