The RF 16mm f/2.8 STM, a compact and lightweight full frame ultrawide angle fast lens designed for EOS R system, weighs only 165g and 40.2mm in length. Its 0.26x magnification at 0.13m minimum focus distance also allows creating close-up photos with unique perspective. All these features make it an ideal choice for landscape or snapshots for entry full frame users.

16mm Ultra-wide Angle with Excellent Image Quality

The RF 16mm f/2.8 STM features a newly developed optical design with 9 elements in 7 groups. Taking the advantage of large mount diameter and short back focus of RF Mount, a large-diameter lens elements is placed closer to the image plane to achieves both a compact optical system and excellent quality throughout the whole image. The incorporation of 1 PMo aspherical lens in the focus group at the 8th lens near the image plane achieves high image quality in the periphery from infinity to the minimum distance by correcting astigmatism and curvature of field. When paired with the real-time Lens aberration Correction[1] and Digital Lens Optimizer built-in to all EOS R series camera, high image quality is ensured. The lens also features the renowned Super Spectra Coating and optimized shapes of lens elements to help improving anti-ghosting and flare performance, an optional petal type Lens Hood EW-65C can be added to further enhance flare resistance.

The RF 16mm f/2.8 STM is an ideal choice for Entry Full frame EOS R users, who currently own a standard zoom kit lens, to expand their photo genres and expressive capability. The lens covers an ultra-wide angle 108o11’ field of view, allows capturing of more breath-taking scenery than the 24mm focal length of standard zoom kit lens or taking spacious photo even in small places. User can also get closer to their subject with this lens and brings more visual dynamic to the photos with perspective unique to ultrawide angle lens. The lens wide f/2.8 aperture and 7-blade circular aperture brings natural and soft bokeh.

When used with EOS R3/EOS R5/EOS R6, the In Body Image Stabilizer offers up to 5.5-stop shake compensation[2] to facilitate handheld shooting.

For content creators active on social media, the combination of RF 16mm f/2.8 STM and Full Frame EOS R-series camera is a great tool for video content shooting. This combination brings wide angle of view for content creators with more background blur and higher image quality than typical smartphone cameras, even for indoor or dark environment.

With an ultrawide angle lens, getting closer to the subject brings more exaggerated perspective distortion. By making use of this exaggerated perspective distortion, users can create adorable and funny kids or animals’ photos which are eye catching on social media. In the meantime, the 0.26x maximum magnification at 0.13m handles small subject with ease, the lens f/2.8 large aperture also brings beautiful background blur to close-up images.

Affordable and Compact

While RF 16mm f/2.8 STM is a fast ultrawide angle lens, it is affordable comparing to similar type of lenses in the market, even entry full frame users with limited budget can now experience the fun of ultrawide angle lens.

Six New Canon imageCLASS X Series Printers to Lineup

Canon U.S.A. Adds Six New Printer and Multifunction Models to the imageCLASS X Series

Expanded A4 product line helps bridge the document workflow divide between the corporate office and the home office


MELVILLE, NY, October 13, 2021 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is expanding its product offering by adding six new models to the imageCLASS X series of desktop printers and multifunction devices.1 With their small footprint, rich feature set, and tight integration with office solutions, these models are designed for users in a variety of work environments - the corporate office, the home office, or a combination of both.

With organizations shifting to a structure that support remote workers, these new models will help employees stay connected and maintain access to critical business information – regardless of location – while also implementing sophisticated security and control features.2

The similar user experience and ease of operation of the imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX multifunction printers in the office, and the desktop imageCLASS X models at home, help make for a smooth transition between the two work environments. Both imageCLASS X and imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX models also support the Canon PRINT Business app, allowing users to perform many functions from their compatible smartphone. Plus, with the optional uniFLOW Online output management solution, organizations can benefit from additional security features while having the ability to facilitate detailed reporting and comprehensive tracking.

The new imageCLASS X models are added to a strong lineup that earned Buyers Lab’s 2021 A4 Line of the Year Award. The exciting new additions include the imageCLASS X MF1643i/iF II black-and-white multifunction printers, offering print speeds up to 45 pages per minute (PPM) and the inclusion of a starter cartridge. These models, which replace the imageRUNNER 1643i/iF and imageCLASS MF543dw models, feature a five-inch color touch panel and offer the flexibility of desktop or floor-standing options.

The new imageCLASS X MF1238 II and the imageCLASS X LBP1238 II models are black-and-white multifunction and single-function printers, respectively, offering print speeds up to 40 PPM and a five-inch color touch panel display. These models replace the previous imageCLASS X MF 1238 and LBP 1238 models

The imageCLASS X 1643 II Series, the imageCLASS X MF1238 II, and the imageCLASS X LBP 1238 II support a new standard Cloud Apps feature, allowing users to scan to or print from popular compatible cloud storage services such as DropBox, Google Drive, or OneDrive. 3

The Color imageCLASS X MF1538C is an A4 color multifunction model with a print speed of up to 40 PPM – a new speed range for a Color imageCLASS X MFP. The new model features a seven-inch color touch panel, the first of its kind for the imageCLASS Series. In addition to being larger and easier to view, the new control panel leverages similar features to the user interface of the imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX models, such as flick and pinch capabilities, the timeline feature, and a similar home screen. This model also supports the remote operation feature, allowing users to replicate the user interface of the device through the Remote Operation Kit on a PC, or the Canon PRINT Business App on a compatible mobile device.

The Color imageCLASS X LBP1538C is a single-function printer that produces vibrant results with speeds of up to 40 ppm. This model replaces the Color imageCLASS LBP712Cdn and includes the additional capability of Wi-FiR connectivity. With its compact design, this new model provides the flexibility to work as either a desktop or floor-standing model.

“These exciting additions strengthen the Canon lineup with solutions designed to enhance the work environment for both in-office and home office locations,” said Shinichi Yoshida, executive vice president and general manager, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “By taking steps such as streamlining the Wi-Fi setup, facilitating cloud storage support and improving the user experience, Canon continues to support its customers with technology designed for the modern hybrid work environment.”

Availability:

The new imageCLASS X models are comprised of the Color imageCLASS X MF1538C (MSRP: $3,100), Color imageCLASS X LBP1538C (MSRP: $1,795), imageCLASS X MF1643i II ($1,430), imageCLASS X MF1643iF II (MSRP: $1,738), imageCLASS X MF 1238 II (MSRP: $1,195) and the imageCLASS X LBP1238 II (MSRP: $599).*

New Canon Laser Printers Deliver Ease of Use, Cloud Connectivity and Enhanced Security Features for Hybrid Workplaces


MELVILLE, NY, October 8, 2021 – As working from home and hybrid work styles have become more common, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, announces three new imageCLASS black-and-white laser printers to help enhance productivity for small businesses and home office workers. These models include new features to help meet the latest market needs for ease of use, workflow efficiency, and security features.

The new imageCLASS MF455dw (up to 40-pages per minute black-and-white multifunction printer) and imageCLASS LBP237dw/LBP236dw (up to 40 PPM) black-and-white printers increase and strengthen Canon’s mid-range printer offerings. They will benefit home office workers by producing high-speed, quality prints with a user-friendly interface and Wi-Fi printing capabilities. The imageCLASS MF455dw and LBP237dw models utilize Canon’s Application Library device platform, which provides the ability for frequently used applications and convenient functions to be registered as quick buttons on the home screen.

The new models build upon the platform capabilities of their predecessors with new features such as:
  • Improved Wi-Fi Setup Process: Connecting to Wi-Fi can now be completed in far fewer steps.
  • Cloud Connect (Scan and Print)*: The MF455dw allows cloud-based printing and scanning directly from the printer’s 5-inch color touch screen. The LBP237dw allows users to print from the cloud. Users can print documents, or scan images and documents, directly from and to Dropbox, Google Drive, or OneDrive accounts.

Based on a recent study, the biggest security risk for home office workers is less secure home-based devices accessing company data. Enhanced security features with the three new imageCLASS printers now provide an added layer to help protect users from digital threats**. The new models support Transport Layer Security, a security feature that provides authentication and encryption, as well as detects alterations.

“As a company built on innovation, Canon is proud to deliver solutions designed to meet new customer needs through the continued expansion of the imageCLASS printer line,” says Shinichi Yoshida, executive vice president and general manager of Canon U.S.A., Inc. “These new models are designed to help improve productivity, efficiency, and security features for small businesses, in particular those with hybrid workplaces.”

The free Canon PRINT Business application for compatible mobile devices offers convenient and quick printing and scanning on the go for the MF455dw and LBP237dw/LBP236dw models. It takes only five seconds for the first page to print on all of these 3 new imageCLASS models, currently the fastest time among most competitors.

All three models are supported by Canon’s friendly and knowledgeable customer service team which provides expert assistance for every level of experience.***

New Canon RF 5.2mm F2.8 L Dual Fisheye Lens

Canon RF 5.2mm F2.8 L Dual Fisheye lens
Virtual Reality Through a New Lens: Canon Introduces Their First Dual Fisheye Lens for Stereoscopic 3D 180° VR Capture in 8K

MELVILLE, NY, October 6, 2021 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, has introduced its first product designed to empower the next generation of immersive storytellers. The new RF5.2mm F2.8 L Dual Fisheye lens brings stereoscopic 3D virtual reality (VR) capture* to the Canon EOS R5 camera as part of the EOS VR System, which also includes a future firmware update for the EOS R5 camera to support use of this lens with new VR shooting specific functions, as well as new upcoming Canon EOS VR software solutions for conversion and processing. 

As the world’s first digital interchangeable dual fisheye lens capable of shooting stereoscopic 3D 180° VR imagery to a single image sensor** the complexities of virtual reality production and the ability to view the content in full capacity, are greatly streamlined for seasoned professionals and newcomers to the craft. In order to truly experience the captured content by this system in its truest form, a compatible VR headset is recommended for use such as the Oculus Quest 2, allowing the viewer to immerse themselves in the content — by simply moving their head to provide a vivid, incredibly wide view.

“At Canon, we innovate so creators can push artistic boundaries, and this commitment to innovation is what led us to introduce the new RF5.2mm F2.8 L Dual Fisheye lens. As Canon’s first entry into the world of virtual reality image capture, the EOS VR System represents an important milestone in our company’s rich history as a lens manufacturer and welcomes a bright future for VR content creation,” said Tatsuro “Tony” Kano, executive vice president and general manager of Canon U.S.A.’s Imaging Technologies & Communications Group. “This new RF lens produces a stunning 8K virtual reality image and sets itself apart through its simplified workflow. Our goal is to make immersive storytelling more accessible for all.”

Canon RF 5.2mm F2.8 L Dual Fisheye lens

The RF5.2mm F2.8 L Dual Fisheye features high-quality L-series optics engineered with an interpupillary distance of 60mm for delivery of 3D imagery in VR with natural parallax closely resembling human vision when viewed through a compatible headset. With a 190 degree field of view captured from two separate optical systems they deliver outstanding results for 180° VR viewing platforms. With subwavelength coating technology offering impressive flare control in backlit conditions, VR creators can have freedom to shoot regardless the time of day, or position of the sun. 

The dual fisheye design provides versatile exposure control with a maximum aperture of a bright f/2.8 to a deep depth of field of f/16 with electronically controlled apertures allowing the dual fisheye lens to operate just like other RF mount lenses. Between the dust and water-resistant sealing and fluorine coating of the lens and the robust build of the EOS R5 camera, this System delivers peace of mind even in challenging weather conditions. Canon’s free Camera Connect app and Canon's EOS Utility program both will be updated in the future to offer remote-control live view functionality for monitoring purposes while on-the-go.

The EOS VR System’s convenient workflow is a standout feature. Accomplished by recording left and right fisheye images to a single full-frame image sensor, this design helps to solve common VR challenges of stitching and synching, by outputting one single image file. Canon is currently developing two paid subscription-based software solutions as available options for completing the post-production process. Canon’s EOS VR Utility will offer the ability to convert clips from dual fisheye image to equirectangular and make quick edits, as well as select the resolution and file format before export. With the EOS VR Plug-In for Adobe® Premiere® Pro, creators will be able to automatically convert footage to equirectangular, and cut, color, and add new dimension to stories with Adobe Creative Cloud® apps, including Premiere Pro.

Compact, lightweight, and portable, the RF5.2mm F2.8 L Dual Fisheye is easily packed in a camera bag to help the creator tell unlimited virtual reality stories.

Additional features of Canon’s first interchangeable, stereoscopic 3D 180° VR 180 lens include:
  • Close-focusing distance of 7.87-inches/0.2m is possible - max magnification is 0.03x.
  • Aperture range of f/2.8 to f/16 with a 7-blade aperture and simultaneous electro-magnetic diaphragm for both left and right lenses.
  • Built-in Gelatin Filter Holder – allows ND gel filters to be used in bright environments if a bright aperture is desired.
  • Fluorine Coating on the front lens elements, with a dust and water resistant design.
  • Extremely compact size – allowing it to be used in different types of productions.

Pricing and Availability

The Canon RF5.2mm F2.8 L Dual Fisheye lens is scheduled to be available in late December 2021 for an estimated retail price of $1,999.00***. In addition to the lens, both of Canon's EOS VR Software solutions (EOS VR Utility and the EOS VR Plug-in for Adobe Premiere Pro) are currently scheduled to be available in late December 2021. Both software solutions will be available as a paid subscription based model, but will offer free trial periods (details to be disclosed at a later date) as well as the ability to process still images and certain clip lengths for free.

Canon RF 5.2mm F2.8L DUAL FISHEYE lens - Official Canon Video

The innovative Canon 3D VR System and the Canon RF 5.2mm F2.8L DUAL FISHEYE lens


Canon EOS VR System
The ground-breaking new EOS VR SYSTEM includes the new Canon RF 5.2mm F2.8L DUAL FISHEYE lens for digital interchangeable lens cameras, enabling 180° VR shooting with one camera to a single sensor.

Innovative lens design for simplified capture
The Canon RF 5.2mm F2.8L DUAL FISHEYE dual forward-facing fisheye lenses have an ultra-wide 190-degree field of view which form the basis of its stereoscopic VR capture capability. Canon’s advanced lens design then enables projection of two images onto the camera’s single sensor for perfect alignment and synchronisation straight out of the camera. By utilising the lens in this way, VR setup is simpler than a two-camera system.

Pushing optical boundaries
The stereoscopic Canon RF 5.2mm F2.8L DUAL FISHEYE lens features the infamous red ring, denoting it as a professional L-series lens that utilises two UD elements per lens, helping to produce sharp clear images, from edge-to-edge. The Canon RF 5.2mm F2.8L DUAL FISHEYE lens SWC coating is ideal for shooting with the sun in the frame, as it suppresses ghosting and flare of sunlight – a commonly encountered shooting condition in VR capture.

Streamlined 180° VR workflows
The brand-new EOS VR SYSTEM uses the Canon RF 5.2mm F2.8L DUAL FISHEYE lens on a single sensor camera where no lens alignment is required – meaning only one file is produced for both the left and right images which is already perfectly synchronised. This allows the Canon software or plug-in to accurately convert the captured dual circular fisheye format to a standard 180° VR format, ready for further editing in Adobe Premiere Pro or viewing on a VR headset.
