“The proliferation of digital cinema cameras over the past half-decade has seen an accompanying expansion in new cine lens designs and Canon has become an increasingly active player in this exciting new arena by developing nine new cine lens models in just the past year alone. The February 6th Canon Live Learning Event, titled Image Quality and the Contemporary Cine Lens, was put together to keep professionals updated and aware of what Canon has been and will be working on in this field. It was headlined by two experts who were able to talk through these developments and share their experience and knowledge.


Canon U.S.A.’s resident optics expert, Larry Thorpe, discussed current aspirations in video image quality and how these bear upon contemporary cine lens design with the crowd in attendance at the Canon Live Learning Event. His thorough presentation detailed the realities of modern lens design and manufacturing while also  placing a special emphasis on optical Modulation Transfer Function (MTF) and its relationship to perceived picture sharpness.”
