About the Canon 17-120mm

Versatile CINE-SERVO Zoom Lens from Canon Provides High-Optical Performance and Operation for ENG, Documentary and Narrative Productions

Designed to perform in a shoulder-mounted application or as a traditional cinema lens, the Canon CINE-SERVO 17-120mm T2.95 zoom lens has an ENG-style Digital Drive handgrip with zoom rocker switch, which can also be detached to allow for manual cinema operation. The new CINE-SERVO lens features high 4K optical performance throughout the broad focal length of 17mm to 120mm within its compact and lightweight body, a three-group inner focus system to help minimize focus breathing and provide a stable angle of view, an 11-blade iris to help achieve creative depth-of-field manipulation and natural "bokeh" background, user-friendly design features, support for matte boxes, follow focus and other accessories, and rugged reliability. Designed to work with single-sensor cameras, the lens will be available in either PL- or EF-mount.

Lens-Camera Communication
Compliance of the Canon CINE-SERVO 17-120mm T2.95 lens with industry-standard camera-to-lens communication protocols helps ensure its compatibility with multiple brands and models of 4K, 2K, and HD cameras. These standards include 12-pin serial communication (common to major broadcast camera brands), Cooke's /i Technology, and Canon EOS technology (employed by the EOS C500, EOS C300, and EOS-1D C Cinema cameras, and the EOS C100 Digital Video Camera). Specific types of data-management functions involving focus, zoom, iris and other settings can vary, depending on camera brands and models. In the case of the Canon EOS system, precise lens data - including aperture setting - are displayed in the EOS camera's viewfinder, as well as recorded in the video file as metadata along with the model name of the lens and focal length setting.

Dual Operability
With its Canon Digital Drive handgrip unit attached, the CINE-SERVO 17-120mm T2.95 lens is ideal for shoulder mount camera configurations commonly employed in ENG, broadcast, or cinema shooting. Attaching the Digital Drive unit does not require manual adjustment of the focus, zoom, and iris gears on the lens, and a rubber cap prevents dirt from entering the Digital Drive unit connections when it's detached. Together with Canon's unique LCD display equipped on the Digital Drive unit that allows the operators to easily access the various digital functions, a 16-bit high-precision microprocessor contained within the Digital Drive unit enables operators to pre-program focus and zoom position/speed, as well as iris settings if desired - allowing for precise, repeatable performance. The microprocessor also provides the capability of a very high-speed zoom of 0.5 seconds to a very slow and consistent zoom of 300 seconds, from wide-end to telephoto-end. Three 20-pin connectors on the Digital Drive unit enable the use of zoom and focus demands or the precision integration of images from the lens and its accompanying camera into a variety of virtual set systems.

In addition to its removable ENG-style Digital Drive unit handgrip that gives users a choice between programmable broadcast-style or fully manual cinema-style operation, the new Canon CINE-SERVO 17-120mm T2.95 zoom lens integrates strategic design features for intuitive, convenient operation by a wide range of camera operators. These features include an ergonomically designed compact and lightweight Digital Drive unit that fits into an operator's hand and brings the palm closer to the center of the lens barrel which can contribute to lessening fatigue on the operator's arm. The lens barrel markings are clearly engraved in both feet and meters on both sides of the lens barrel, and focus indicators on the front side of the lens are marked on an inclined surface to make them easier to see from the back of the camera, especially when mounted on an operator's shoulder. Additionally, luminous paint is used for the scale display on one side of the barrel to help make the markings visually identifiable in the dark.

Combining both broadcast operability and the accuracy required by cinematographers, the lens features a 180 degree focus rotation angle. Both 0.8 type and 0.5 type gear module focus accessories can be used, with the 0.8-pitch gear positioned in front of the focus ring to preclude any interference with the Digital Drive unit or a connecting cord. Major power-driven accessories, matte boxes, and other standard options used by filmmakers can all be mounted. Lens support shafts for support rods as well as a lens hood unit are also included with the lens.

As a symbol of inheriting the optical technology that was developed for other Canon Cinema lenses, a red alumite identity color is used for the mount area. A structure enabling the lens' EF mount to be replaced with the PL mount, or vice versa (electrical system included), is also incorporated. This conversion upgrade can be provided at authorized Canon service centers.

Canon 17-120mm Features

  • High Zoom Magnification 7x:Coupled with an extremely versatile focal length that is continuously variable from 17mm to 120 mm. Its compact size and light weight include the sametype of removable drive unit found on conventional broadcast-use ENG lenses, with ergonomics that provide a that provide a familiar feel that many ENG cameramen expect.
  • 4K-ready optical performance: for digital cameras equipped with Super35mm CMOS sensors that offer four times the image resolution of conventional HD media. The lenses' high optical performance across a wide zoom range matches that of 4K single-chip, large-format digital cameras, for both cinema and broadcast applications
  • 11-Blade Iris Provides Natural Bokeh: The use of an 11-blade iris produces artistic and beautiful out-of-focus areas or "Bokeh." The 11 blades allow for attractive circular blurring in out-of-focusregions, while the use of an odd number of blades help reduce flaring of specular highlights.
  • Designed for Cinema Style & Broadcast Applications: The lens incorporates a removable drive unit that provides remote control of thefocus, zoom and iris/aperture settings. Focus indicators on the front side of the lens are marked on a beveled surface, making them easier to identify from the rear of the camera especially when mounted on a shoulder.
  • Enhanced Servo Drive Unit: The LCD display enables users to easily access functions on the drive unit. Usersettings are also accessible from the drive unit. The drive unit can provide a very fast zoom speed of up to 0.5 seconds from end to end, or a very slow speed of 300 seconds. These can be changed using a toggle switch on the drive unit.
  • 16-bit Metadata Output for Virtual Studio Systems
  • High Durability and Ruggedness
  • Compact and Lightweight
