Image Quality and the Contemporary Cine Lens

This presentation will discuss current aspirations in video image quality and how these bear upon contemporary cine lens design

By PVC News Staff | November 05, 2012

Digital imaging continues to advance at a rapid pace. Hardly has High Definition digital video become an established norm than new global standards have been written for 4K and even 8K digital imaging systems. The proliferation of digital cinematography cameras over the past half-decade has seen an accompanying expansion in new cine lens designs. Canon is an increasingly active player in this exciting new arena.

This presentation, by Canon U.S.A.'s resident optics expert, Larry Thorpe, will discuss current aspirations in video image quality and how these bear upon contemporary cine lens design. High-resolution video performance parameters will be reviewed and related to the realities of modern lens design and manufacturing. Special emphasis on optical Modulation Transfer Function (MTF) and its relationship to perceived picture sharpness will be discussed in detail. The particular challenge of cine zoom lens design will be outlined.

The following Canon Cinema lenses will be demonstrated at this event:

  • CN-E24mm T1.5 L F
