The new DIGISUPER 95 (XJ95x8.6B) is the new generation super-telefoto lens that provides a range of imaging possibilities that conventional field lenses cannot match. Capitalizing on Canon's mastery of advanced lens technology, the XJ95x combines the widest focal length (8.6mm) of any field lens in the industry with a 95x zoom range that's longer at the tele end. Through this extensive framing latitude, every dramatic on-site sensation can be captured from the emotions of a capacity crowd to the triumphant smile of an individual goal scorer. The imaging possibilities are not only greater so too are optical performance and image stabilization. This new lens provides superb picture sharpness across the 16:9 HD image plane and improves on Canon's already renowned image stabilization performance. The XJ95x's incomparable optical performance is based on Canon's 50 years of advanced R&D and extensive broadcast lens development experience. By utilizing the company's proprietary large-diameter aspherical lens technology and exotic glass materials, the particular optical challenges of large focal-length ranges have been effectively countered. These include lateral chromatic aberration, monochromatic aberrations and geometric distortion.
