in Canon

As if the Canon 7D wasn’t enough, Canon has apparently been dropping invites for “one of their biggest and most important product launches in its history.” It looks set to go down on September 29.

“In the autumn the Canon one of their biggest and most important product launches in the company’s history and we hope you can attend. During a lunch date you are welcome to listen to CEO Jouko Tuominen, Marketing and trend analyst Magnus Lindkvist, when they’re talking about

future trends and success factors in an increasingly digitalized everyday.

Date: 29 September

Time: Cl. 11-13

An invitation with more details coming soon. Welcome!

A picture of one, as I understand it, has created a large box with a red rag over. One side of the box looming, cardboard-colored, without pressure. Should mean something to professional direction. Hopefully not a new color laser …

Canon 1D Mark IV anyone?  Pro video gear?  The infamous Canikon (people still email me on this wanting more details)? A copier that makes perfect copies of Chuck Norris? Anyone?

Take your guess or offer your insider information in the comments below.  Closest to the actual product gets 40 kudos (that’s points, not candies).

I m guessing Canon would release it’s first ever non-tape based Camcorder to rival Sony’s EX series, Or the 1D Mk4
Or the printer that gives perfect print of chuck :D

I agree with Hamza, but I think it’ll be more major than that.

Canon’s first recent forage into the professional filmmaking industry, a camera with RAW workflow, interchangeable PL mount lenses (i.e. pro cinema lenses), and a S35mm sized sensor.

It’s a new color copy machine with a Kung fu grips. Seriously though the names in the flyer are part of canon’s business department not photo or video.
