The Canon Cine-Servo CN20x50 50-1000mm T5.0-8.9 EF is an ENG-style motorized zoom lens for Canon-branded EF-mount cameras. Key features include:

  • Perfect for Super 35mm/APS-C crop-sensor cameras

  • ENG-style hand grip with a zoom rocker

  • 50-1000/70-1500mm zoom

  • Canon electronic communication

Broadcast Standard Interface. The Canon Cine-Servo CN20x50 50-1000mm T5.0-8.9 EF features the same 12-pin camera interface for power and serial data as found on regular Canon broadcast lenses. It also has three 20-pin connectors below its servo so that you can connect a system to collect 16-bit virtual image data.

Motorized Zoom. This lens features an ENG-style hand grip with a zoom rocker. Power is provided by a 12-pin Hirose connector (we provide a D-Tap adapter). This servo-drive unit is compatible with industry-standard lens controllers for full zoom, focus, and iris control. Its 16-bit metadata output means you can integrate it into studio systems, and you can remove the servo drive entirely if you’re shooting in a cinema style.

Cinema Construction. Designed with professional production needs in top priority, the lens has dual film-industry pitch gears (0.8 & 0.5) for focus, zoom, and iris control, and an 11-blade stepless aperture. There’s also a knurled focus ring that’s limited to 180° rotation.

20x Zoom Range. The Canon 50-1000mm T5.0-8.9 EF has a 20x zoom range, which is very long for a lens designed for Super 35mm/APS-C crop-sensor cameras. You can use the built-in extender to expand the zoom range to 75 to 1500mm while still supporting 4K resolution.

Q & A

  • Is the Canon Cine-Servo 50-1000mm available in any other mounts?
    • Yes. We also rent the this lens in the PL mount.

  • What type of power source does this lens use?
    • For most cameras, this lens will require a D-Tap power source to power the lens with the included 12-pin to D-Tap cable.

    • If you’re using this with a Canon C500 Mark II or C300 Mark III, you’ll need a battery cable & battery plate with compatible brick battery or the Canon EU-V2 Expansion Unit 2 and Canon 12-Pin to 12-Pin Interface Extension Cable 15.7-inch to power the lens from the expansion unit’s lens terminal.

  • Do I need a rail system with this?
    • No! We include two 24-inch 19mm rails, 19mm studio lens support, bridge plate, and O’Connor dovetail with this lens.

    • Please note, the included bridge plate includes two 3/8-16 attachment screws for connecting to a camera baseplate and is not intended to have a camera mounted directly to it.

  • Do I need a certificate of insurance (COI) or deposit to rent this item?
    • Yes. We require a COI or deposit to rent this product.
