Recently there has been a great demand for broadcast HDTV studio production.In the field of the HDTV 
studio production, Canon’s DIGISUPER 25xs is the most popular HDTV studio lens in the world and it is 
known for its outstanding optical performance and ease of operation. Now, Canon is introducing unique 
technology with the launch of our most advanced HDTV studio lens, the DIGISUPER 27.
In addition to the lens’ completely new design, the DIGISUPER 27 is also equipped with a digital interface, 
enabling the lens to be compatible with virtual studio systems. Moreover, newly developed optional 
functions and accessories that allow for more effective studio production, are available. The unique options 
available on the DIGISUPER 27 are a “Remote Macro System” and an industry first “Wide Attachment 
(0.9x)”.

Optical performance with an improved 27x 
zoom ratio and an exceptional 6.5mm Wide Angle 
while maintaining a compact size
.
The DIGISUPER 27 features outstanding HD optical 
performance that will dramatically improve HDTV studio 
imagery. The key optical performance features are first, a 
significantly Reduced Ghosting and Flare. Secondly,  
Minimized distortion even though the wide angle has been 
expanded to an exceptional 6.5mm. Reaching this 
incredible optical quality is only possible because of 
Canon’s unique optical design concept, the POWER 
OPTICAL SYSTEM. 
Latest generation DIGITAL SERVO SYSTEM
Canon’s latest generation digital servo system allows the 
use of many new functions such as constant angle of view 
while focusing “CAFS” and the selection of different 
servo characteristics. 
These functions are only possible with a digital servo 
system. In addition to these new functions, the upgrading 
of software will be possible when new functions become 
available in the future. This means that the DIGISUPER 27 
has unlimited possibilities.
The DIGISUPER 27 achieves 13 Bit zoom and focus 
repeatability and offers bi-directional serial data 
communication in order to facilitate highly accurate and 
smooth movements that are essential for robotics and 
virtual applications.
The digital servo system is reliable, consistent and is not 
affected by electric interference.
.
Improved zoom speed and zoom control capabilities
The DIGISUPER 27 features both an improved maximum 
zoom speed (0.5sec) as well as enhanced control of the 
zoom movement when operated via the zoom demand. The 
DIGISUPER 27 enables swift response to the operator’s 
zoom commands and at the same time, provides for a more 
smooth motion at the beginning of the movement.These 
features provide camera operators with zoom movement 
fully meeting their expectations and with intuitive control. 
Compatible with the virtual studio system
The DIGISUPER 27 is capable of supplying various types 
of positional signals to Virtual systems. The type of 
signals can be chosen from: an Encoder data signal, an 
Analog data signal or a Serial data signal, which are 
common in existing  Virtual systems. 
 “CAFS” Constant Angle Focusing System
The zooming effect of focus is the phenomena where the 
picture size (angle of view) changes when focusing 
(breathing). However, a CPU calculates and controls the 
zoom when focusing in order to counteract these 
phenomena. Thus the DIGISUPER 27 has ZERO zooming 
effect of focus throughout the whole zoom range.
CROSSOVER COMPATIBILITY
Available optionally is the dual aspect ratio switching 
system, “CROSSOVER”, for switchable 16:9/4:3 cameras.
Remote Macro System(Optional)
By using the optional Remote Macro controller MCJ-S02, 
the camera operator can focus on objects within the Macro 
distance. The Remote Macro controller also allows the 
camera operator greater creative control through the ability 
to create intentionally out of focus images. 
Wide Attachment (Optional)
By using the optional 0.9x Wide Attachment, the focal 
length becomes wider by a factor of 0.9x. The new Wide 
Attachment has been exclusively designed for the 
DIGISUPER 27 thus maximizing its optical performance.
