The portable CJ12ex4.3B 4K UHD wide-angle lens combines the ability to provide outstanding optical performance that supports 4K UHD broadcast production with amazing 4.3mm wide angle capability that is ideally suited to creating panoramic 4K imagery. Wide angle shooting has added tremendous creative options to many genres of program production including sports, documentaries and drama. The very nature of 4K UHD imagery inherently exploits wide angle shots by enabling panoramic vistas containing large amounts of image detail. 

The portable CJ12ex4.3B 4K UHD wide-angle lens offers focal length of 4.3mm and the world's shortest minimum object distance (MOD) of 30cm. This makes it possible to create images with extreme wide angles of view, with the shortest focal length for a 2/3" 4K lens. As such, this lens supports subsequent 1920 x 1080 cropping from the 3840 x 2160 camera output providing full HDTV quality. Alternatively, the camera output can be down sampled to provide an even higher HDTV image sharpness. 

The portable CJ12ex4.3B 4K UHD wide-angle lens was developed with high index optical glass materials, each having unique dispersion characteristics, helping to minimize chromatic aberrations and geometric distortion. Lens element surface accuracy has been improved significantly over HDTV lenses contributing to the enhanced Modulation Transfer Function (MTF) performance required of 4K imagery.

New multi-layer optical coatings combined with new deposition processes produce an outstandingly pristine optical imaging system. Aspheric lens elements are deployed to a greater extent in the larger diameter elements, contributing to far greater control over geometric distortion and aberrations - especially at the very wide angle settings. Three-part internal focus helps reduce changes in aberrations when focusing to different object distances, while also exercising tight control over any tendency for focus breathing. New, more powerful computer design tools facilitated a greater degree of optimization of multiple optical variables in the lens design.

A particular challenge the portable CJ12ex4.3B 4K UHD wide-angle lens design is the built-in 2x optical extender. The insertion of that additional optical subsystem tends to exacerbate optical aberrations. Accordingly, Canon paid the highest attention to the optical design of this unit and as a consequence full 4K optical specifications are protected when the extender is switched in.

Extensive use of 3D CAD-CAM design facilitated an innovative ergonomic design of the portable CJ12ex4.3B 4K UHD wide-angle lens that paid high attention to operator comfort and lessening of fatigue during protracted shooting. The Digital Drive Unit design takes into account the curved human hand that encompasses the unit, with a view of shaping the unit for greater comfort and to better facilitate the actuation of lens controls. The unit shape also provides a wider separation that allows the other hand to more easily adjust the focus control. The drive unit was narrowed and the mounting angle on the lens is set to allow the operator's elbow to settle close to the body, providing an important reduction in fatigue when operating a shoulder mounted lens-camera system.

The portable CJ12ex4.3B 4K UHD wide-angle lens utilizes the same standard controllers for zoom and focus operations that have been optimized over decades of Canon HDTV lens developments. The lens also uses the standard Canon 20-pin connector that provides an interface for the digital precision positional information of the zoom, focus, and iris operations required by many external virtual systems
