Superb image quality

The EF 600mm f/4L IS III delivers ultra-high sharpness and very low levels of distortion. Both Super UD and fluorite elements are used in the optical design to help reduce colour fringing and chromatic aberrations for high clarity and colour accuracy. Super Spectra and Air Sphere Coatings have been applied to individual elements to suppress flareFLAREOccurs when a point light source such as the sun or an artificial light (that is brighter than the rest of the scene), hits the front element of a lens resulting in a lack of contrast, haze, or unwanted semi-transparent objects being present in the image. You can avoid lens flare with a lenshood or filters, however, the effect is also useful for bringing artistic elements into an image, such as sun rays peaking out from behind a rock formation. and ghosting for increased contrastCONTRASTThe difference between areas of different brightness levels in a photograph: A high-contrast image has a greater difference between light and dark areas, whereas a low-contrast image has a narrow range of tones. Contrast is used to direct a viewer’s attention to a photographer’s subject either with colour contrast (bold versus duller colours) or tonal contrast (bright versus darker tones). and colour neutrality when working in backlit conditions. The use of aspherical lens elements in the design helps to limit spherical aberrations and distortion for greater sharpness and accurate rendering.


Features

  • EF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • ApertureAPERTUREAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Aperture refers to an opening inside the lens, similar to the iris of your eye, that changes in diameter to control the amount of light that enters a camera. Aperture is expressed in f-stops: the lower the number, the larger the aperture, e.g. f/1.4 is larger than f/8. A larger (or wider) aperture allows more light to pass through the lens to the sensor (film) as a picture is taken, particularly useful in low-light conditions. A larger aperture also produces a shallower depth-of-field, and thus more background blur. Range: f/4 to f/32

Built to travel

An advanced optical formula not only boosts image quality but also makes the EF 600mm f/4L IS III more portable, making it easier to use on location. As a member of the esteemed L-series, this lens is sealed against dust and moisture for working in inclement environmental conditions and also features a fluorine coating on the front and rear elements to guard against water spots, smudges, or oil residue.


Focus quickly & accurately

Sharp focus is achieved quickly and quietly, using ring-type USM autofocus. Dynamic subjects are tracked accurately as they move about the frame. With a fast f/4 aperture, the focus is quick and accurate even in low-light conditions. Extremely quiet autofocus operation makes the Canon EF 600mm III the perfect discreet companion in the bush when capturing wildlife.


Shoot handheld

With its radical lightweight design and five-stop Image Stabiliser, the EF 600mm f/4L IS III can be used without support, even with such powerful telephotoTELEPHOTOA lens with long focal length capable of making distant objects appear nearer thus larger. Essentially, it isolates and magnifies the subject so that it appears as a full image when shooting from a distance. Telephoto lenses are ideal for photographing subjects that are further away, such as wildlife and sports photography. magnifications. Three stabilisation modes suit various shooting applications and include standard single-shot mode, a panning-optimised mode, and a mode that only activates the Image Stabiliser during the exposureEXPOSUREExposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. Achieving the correct exposure is similar to collecting rain in a bucket, up to an optimum level. The rate of rainfall is out of your control (light), yet you can control these three factors: the bucket’s width (lens aperture), the duration you leave it in the rain (shutter speed), and how effective your bucket is in collecting rain (ISO). These three elements work together to control the amount of light per unit area, preventing underexposure (too dark) or overexposure (too bright), giving you a natural looking image..


Shoot smarter

Fingertip controls allow AF to be started, stopped or momentarily locked. Two pre-programmed focusing positions can be recalled instantly with the touch of a button. A customisable electronic focusing ring further contributes to precise manual focus control, by affording three focusing sensitivity levels for different applications.
