Canon Compact Cine Zooms: Real World Performance

The two Canon Compact Cine Zoom lenses, 15.5mm-47mm and 30mm-105mm, offer high performance with great flexibility. They each cover an extended range in a small, lightweight package. Both lenses focus very closely and do not distort the image throughout their range. Even with fast T2.8 apertures, they offer high resolving power with excellent contrast.

There are many places on the web to find basic specs on these lenses, so we decided to show the lens' functionality in real world production settings. Mitch set up "talking head" and "stand up" interior shots, and Jeff went outside to illustrate some "run & gun" situations. These practical demonstrations are designed to illustrate how the lenses may perform under normal shooting conditions.
