The newest member of Canon's Compact-Servo lens family has a focal range of 70-200mm. The COMPACT-SERVO 70-200mm T4.4 EF lens combines high level 4K optical performance with a compact size of only 7.2 in. in length and a weight of only 2.76 lbs. provides outstanding mobility.
Acknowledging the need to control zoom, focus and iris, Canon has developed this zoom lens with full external servo control. The integrated servo drive unit is compatible with broadcast industry-standard lens controllers including Canon's standard broadcast lens controllers (ZSD-300D/FPD-400D). The optional ZSG-C10 Zoom Servo Grip can mount to the lens for handheld operation.
Three levels of Image Stabilization and incorporated autofocus functions set the COMPACT-SERVO 70-200mm T4.4 EF lens apart from traditional Super 35mm Cinema lenses. A 9-blade iris creates a rounded aperture so out-of-focus highlights appear circular. The lens also features a 2.8x zoom magnification, a focal length range of 70-200mm and a 130° smooth rotating focus ring. The lens is also compatible with our Canon EF 1.4x III and EF 2x III Extenders. The 70-200mm T4.4 EF lens offers professional video functionality all at an affordable price, making it ideal for a wide range of video applications including documentary, cinema, news gathering, wedding and other video production.
Lens Design Optimized for Video Application
Different aspects of lens performance are emphasized when shooting video as opposed to still images. A zoom range through commonly used focal lengths, high level 4K optical performance and a smooth aperture iris designed for motion picture capture all demonstrate the

The excellent contrast range associated with High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging helps ensure both deep black reproduction and the excellent handling of scene specular highlights. HDR image capture significantly enhances both the contrast and the richness of colors in a scene, but it also poses a potential challenge in exacerbating the visibility of any lens chromatic aberrations.

Iris Mechanism for Motion Picture
Continuous Iris Control Capability with Iris Ring
A Cinema lens requires an iris that can be smoothly adjusted between wide open and closed. Continuous adjustment allows not only for precise exposure control, but also smooth adjustment live in shot while recording. This can be useful to help compensate for change in exposure due to spotty clouds or moving between indoor and outdoor light levels within a shot.
More iris blades create a rounder aperture, resulting in out-of-focus highlights that appear more circular. An odd number of iris blades means that there will be a larger number of small radiating points on a flare, helping to prevent distracting artifact.

Servo Zoom Drive Unit
Servo Control Capability for Zoom Function
The integrated servo drive allows for electronic control over the zoom. The control is electromechanical, rotating the actual geared rings on the lens housing via servo motors. These motors can also be disengaged, allowing for full manual control. The zoom servo can be remotely controlled or operated using a rocker switch on the side of the lens.
Power Provided via Camera Mount
On select Cinema EOS cameras, the EF lens mounts electrical contacts provide the necessary power to operate the servos on the
