40x Optical Zoom with 56° Wide Angle Lens

The VB-C60 features the industry’s most powerful 40x optical zoom and 4x digital zoom. The camera’s advanced auto focus system achieves smooth, immediate focus. Thanks to Canon’s optical technology, the
VB-C60 ultra-long zoom is able to maintain edge-to-edge tonal accuracy and clarity through the entire zoom range. The VB-C60 also features a genuine Canon wide angle lens, with a 56° horizontal field of view.

Canon’s superior optical technology is powerful and precise, our high-precision aspherical lens allows for high resolution video in a variety of conditions. Colors remain true due to use of low dispersion glass. The bright F1.6 diameter lens combined with high-sensitivity CCD provides optimal contrast even in low light.

The infrared lens coating minimizes ghosting due to infrared rays and increases night mode sensitivity. The lens system is built upon Canon video camera technology to provide high quality continuous video capture that is equipped to handle diverse lighting conditions and temperatures throughout the day.
