Canon introduces an important innovation in HD production portable lens, the HJ15ex8.5B KRSE-V. This is specifically intended to extend production flexibilities in mobile HD shooting of many forms. The lens embodies a built-in optical image stabilization system based upon Canon’s patented Vari-Angle Prism Image Stabilizer (VAP-IS) technology. Canon’s IS technology has been significantly improved over an earlier system deployed a decade ago in a standard definition lens.

Rock solid imagery is ensured when the lens-camera system is subjected to a wide range of perturbation frequencies encountered by a camera operator who is shooting handheld while walking, running, or operating from a motorcycle pillion, within a moving vehicle, boat, or helicopter. Canon continues to shake the industry with the world’s first portable image stabilized HD lens - the HJ15ex8.5B KRSE-V.


  • Optical Technologies: Newly developed optical materials combined with the very latest lens element design innovations and multilayer coatings ? that produce an unsurpassed pristine imaging system for the most discerning production team. The HDxs logo identifies the deployment of these technologies in the lens.
  • Power Optics: Speaks to the combination of specialized materials, contemporary optical design, and multilayer coatings that produce the superb imagery HDxs Logo.
  • Internal Focus: A Canon design innovation that uses a floating optical system to better control chromatic aberrations.
  • Digital Technologies: New third-generation enhanced digital servo systems using Canon-developed 16-bit optical rotary encoder devices introduce entirely new value-added creativity to handheld acquisition systems Enhanced Digital Drive technology encompasses a microcomputer driven servo control that embodies position memory and user-defined digital functionality to significantly empower the camera operator charged with creative shaping of the image presented to the camera sensors 16-bit rotary encoder for aperture control reports to the associated camera Iris control system (10-bit compatibility) Maximum Zoom speed is 0.5 seconds and Focus is 1.5 seconds Built-in Iris, Zoom, and Focus motors.
  • Mechanical Technologies: Ergonomic mechanical design that produced this HD lens having the same size and weight as its SDTV predecessor. Compact digital servo drive unit is mounted to the lens at a 12.5 degree angle for comfort and balance Magnesium alloy body for light weight and exceptional durability.
  • Ecological Design: All contemporary Canon lenses avoid the use of materials and substances potentially harmful to the environment. Lead has been removed from all optics and other identified substances such as cadmium, mercury, PBBS etc from all components comprising the composite lens system.
