  • New sensor and speed-up control circuit

  • Focal range of 8.8mm to 710mm (17.6 to 1420mm with extender)

  • Supports a wide range of virtual systems

  • 32-bit CPU counteracts ‘breathing’ providing virtually zero zooming effect of focus

  • Superior operability and tracking

Detailed Features

  • Advanced long lens for Outside Broadcasting

    The XJ80x8.8B offers a maximum wide angle of 8.8mm, which is approximately 5% wider than previous long-zoom lenses. This enables the lens to pull back and fully capture the scene even in limited space, and also capture images that exhibit a stunning degree of intensity. With a zoom factor of 80x, the XJ80x8.8B allows any and all scenes, from a panoramic view of a stadium to the detailed expressions on players, to be taken with a single lens.

  • Advanced image stabilization

    The XJ80x8.8B, incorporates a more advanced version of Canon's image stabilizer as a standard feature. With a new sensor and speed-up control circuit, this latest version of the image stabilizer significantly curbs vibration, particularly in the high frequency range. By successfully suppressing all kinds of vibration, such as that generated by wind and excited fans in the stands, the XJ80x8.8B's image stabilizer allows the capture of stable, clear video even at super-telephoto range. It also largely mitigates the "aftershock" phenomenon that occurs when an image moves after the camera operator stops panning.

  • Superior operability and tracking

    With its superior operability, the XJ80x8.8B also offers enhanced width and higher magnification without increases in physical lens size. Moreover, the use of a high-speed CPU and high-resolution encoder, coupled with improvements in control algorithms, have yielded significant enhancements in handling subjects entering motion and subsequent tracking when zooming at super-slow speeds.

  • Reduces shifts in angles of view caused by focusing to nearly zero. CAFS (Constant Angle Focusing System)

    A 32-bit CPU calculates and controls the zoom when focusing to counteract "breathing" (phenomena where picture size/angle of view changes when focusing) and has almost zero zoom effect.

  • Support for Various Virtual Systems

    With multiple support for encoder outputs, analog outputs, and serial outputs, the XJ80x8.8B can work with many kinds of virtual systems. IT COMES EQUIPPED AS STANDARD WITH A 20-PIN LENS INTERFACE.
