Canon COMPACT-SERVO 18-80mm

T4.4 EF Mount Lens

The COMPACT-SERVO 18-80mm T4.4 EF-mount lens combines the benefits of compact size and light weight (only 2.7 lbs.) for outstanding mobility. Designed to shoot video, this lens can be ideal for the cinematographer moving up from Canon's EF lenses, combining the functionality of their EF lenses with the video shooting features of their Cinema lenses.

Key Features:

  • Broad Focal Length Coverage
  • High Level 4K Optical Performance
  • Iris Mechanism for Motion Picture
  • Minimized Focus Breathing
  • Newly Developed Servo Drive Unit
  • Compact (182.3mm in Length) and Lightweight (2.65 lbs.) for Increased Mobility and Versatility 
  • Supports a Wide Range of Optional Accessories

Acknowledging the need to control zoom, focus and iris/aperture, Canon has developed this zoom lens with full external servo control for drama, documentary and other video productions. The servo drive unit is compatible with industry-standard lens controllers including Canon's standard broadcast lens controllers (ZSD-300D/FPD-400D). The optional ZSG-C10 grip designed exclusively for this lens adds additional flexibility for the ENG style "run-and-gun" video shooter.

Canon's first Cinema style lens that incorporates both an Image Stabilization function and Auto Focus function, the lens is also fully 4K-ready, with a high optical resolution and support for Super35mm large-format cameras. A 9-blade aperture diaphragm helps ensure an artistic and beautiful representation of out-of-focus areas (or "Bokeh"). The lens also features a 4.4x zoom magnification, a focal length range of 18mm to 80mm, and a 180º smooth rotating focus ring.

Overall, the video features and functionality of the COMPACT-SERVO 18-80mm T4.4 EF-mount lens make it an ideal choice for a wide range of professional video shooting environments.
