Model Details

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.

Canon's now even more advanced Image Stabilization System comes standard in the XJ95x. Its improved optical shift-type stabilizer incorporates a sensor inside the lens that detects vibration. Compensating optics are then engaged at high speed to cancel out any effect on the image.

To counteract 'breathing' (a phenomenon that occurs when focusing, changing picture size/angle of view), the new lens includes CAFS (Constant Angle Focusing System). Through a 32-bit CPU, the zoom is calculated and controlled to give an almost zero zooming effect of focus.

As users have come to expect with Canon Broadcast lenses, the XJ95x provides excellent operability including outstanding tracking capability. Similar in size and weight to the XJ86x (W.250.6, H.255.5, L.610.0mm; 23.2kg), it is also ideal for panning and tilting. Equipped as standard with a 20-pin lens interface, the lens is easily adapted to work with a wide range of existing virtual systems.

This new generation super-telefoto field lens comes from the market leader in the outside broadcasting lens industry. Whatever the major world class sporting event - football, athletics, swimming, tennis, skiing, skating or golf - and live concerts too, Canon field lens have always been there to shoot it.


  • From Wide Angle to Telephoto 

    The XJ95x offers an enormous range of imaging possibilities that are impossible with conventional field lenses, thanks to its 95x zoom ratio and the widest focal length (8.6mm) of any field lens in the industry. With this extensive image-framing latitude, the lens can dramatically capture every possible on-site sensation, from the emotion of an entire crowded stadium to the facial expression of an individual player.

  • Incomparable Optical Performance 

    Canon's design and production technologies have been refined through more than 50 years of advanced R&D and extensive experience in broadcast lens development. The past decade especially has seen dramatic advances in powerful new 3D optical design tools, glass materials, and optical coatings.

    Canon's mastery of computer-based 3D optical design techniques and use of the most contemporary optical technologies allow the XJ95x lens to provide a wider angle of view, a higher zoom ratio, and unparalleled overall optical performance. Canon's proprietary large-diameter aspherical lens technology and exotic new glass materials effectively counter lateral chromatic aberration, monochromatic aberrations, and geometric distortion that have always been the particular challenge of large focal-length ranges. Significant reduction of these aberrations further enhance the resolution and contrast in a manner that contributes to the capture of images having superb picture sharpness across the 16:9 HD image plane.

  • CAFS (Constant Angle Focusing System) 

    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.

  • Even More Advanced Image Stabilization System 

    A persistent problem for telephoto lenses is image blurring at long focal lengths caused by the wind or slight vibrations transmitted through the stadium stand or tower. To minimize this sort of image blurring, the XJ95x comes standard equipped with an improved optical shift-type image stabilizer. When the sensor inside the lens detects a vibration, the compensating optics are shifted at high-speed to instantly deflect the light rays in a direction that cancels out the vibration's effect on the image. The XJ95x's new sensor provides several improvements to Canon's already renowned image-stabilization performance.

  • Excellent Operability 

    The XJ95x offers outstanding tracking capability due to its high-resolution encoders to faithfully reproduce the camera operator's intended movements, whether a slow zoom or a preset sequence. The XJ95x, despite its powerful specs, is similar in size and weight to the XJ86x, making it perfectly viable for panning and tilting.

  • Support for Many Virtual Systems 

    The XJ95x is equipped with high-performance zoom, focus, and iris encoders. With multiple support for encoder outputs, analog outputs, and serial outputs, the XJ95x can work with many kinds of virtual systems. It easily adapts to existing virtual systems because it comes standard equipped with 20-pin lens interface.
