HJ18ex7.6B IRSE S/IASE S: get closer to the action with the enhanced Standard HDTV lens

HJ18ex7.6B IRSE S/IASE S: get closer to the action with the enhanced Standard HDTV lens

A sophisticated advance in the HDxs lens range, the HJ18ex7.6B IRSE S/IASE S is ideal for broadcast news gathering. Meeting the exacting performance demands of HDTV acquisition, it provides improved optical performance, intuitive design, and a reduced size.

Who is it for?

The HJ18ex7.6B IRSE S/IASE S boasts a powerful 18x zoom (7.6-137mm) with a built in 2x extender.

Designed for electronic news gathering (ENG) applications, the HJ18ex7.6B IRSE S/IASE S’s versatility allows broadcast cameramen the flexibility to cover even the most demanding of situations, thanks to an 18x 7.6-137mm zoom lens, a lightweight compact design and built-in 2x extender.

Utilising Canon’s legendary outstanding optical performance, footage taken with the lens is packed with detail thanks to high peripheral resolution and uniform brightness.

Compact and lightweight for comfortable use in any location, this lens will be a firm favourite for news teams thanks to rapid start-up. A new digital drive unit allows for precise, repeatable operation while enhanced virtual studio integration, with 16-bit encoder output, means the lens will integrate itself neatly with all workflow situations.

Key features

  • High peripheral resolution and uniform brightness ensure outstanding image
  • Versatile 18x zoom lens with 7.6-137mm focal length and 56cm MOD
  • Built-in 2x extender gets you even closer
  • Compact and lightweight for comfortable use in any location
  • Rapid start-up, with lens, chromatic and camera aberration functions supported
  • New digital drive unit: precise, repeatable operation
  • Enhanced virtual studio integration, with 16-bit encoder output
  • Familiar, intuitive physical design and menu structure make operation effortless control
  • Crossover technology option – switchable between 16:9 and 4:3
  • New System mode supports lens adjustment between projects


Chromatic aberrations are kept to a minimum thanks to an excellent Modulation Transfer Function (MTF) profile.

The lens inherits decades of expertise in optical design. Both peripheral resolution and uniformity of brightness are significantly enhanced, resulting in sharper, brighter images, from the centre to the corners.

An excellent MTF profile over the entire image plane, minimisation of chromatic aberrations, and maximisation of contrast support help provide stunning imagery, whilst a maximum aperture of f/1.8 makes this lens eminently suited to low-light applications.


The HJ18ex7.6B IRSE S/IASE S features a useful 18x zoom range as well as a very handy 2x extender built-in.

The HJ18ex7.6B IRSE S/IASE S gets you closer to the action with its versatile 18x zoom lens. A focal length of 7.6-137mm provides coverage for most shooting situations, while a built-in 2x extender is available for when you really need to get close up. And with an MOD of just 56cm, tight corners are never a problem.


The HJ18ex7.6B IRSE S/IASE S is lightweight and comfortable to use thanks to an ergonomic handgrip.

Responding to the varied demands of ENG environments, the HJ18ex7.6B IRSE S/IASE S is a robust unit employing a magnesium alloy body for lightweight, exceptional durability. And despite numerous performance enhancements it weighs less than its predecessor at just 1.58kg.


The HJ18ex7.6B IRSE S/IASE S benefits from over 50 years of Canon history in TV lens manufacturing and offers a variety of optical and mechanical innovations including proprietary lens coatings which substantially reduce flare, glare and internal reflection. Minimisation of ghosting and other chromatic distortions caused by strong light sources further extends the operational contrast range.


A new digital drive unit employs 16-bit optical rotary encoders.

In addition to providing outstanding image quality, the HJ18ex7.6B IRSE S/IASE S is designed for practicality.

A new digital drive unit employs 16-bit optical rotary encoders to ensure responsive, precise, repeatable user operation. Start-up is fast, with multiple types of image compensation - including lens and chromatic aberration - supported.

The drive unit is compatible with existing zoom and focus demands, whilst virtual studio integration is enhanced thanks to precise 16-bit encoder output.

An Easy mode makes navigation of frequently used menu functions more straightforward, whilst System mode supports lens adjustment between projects.
