Canon Looks to Adopt Thunderbolt Technology in Video Products

Following the recent release of the new MacBook Pro models, Intel looks to add another Thunderbolt arrow to its quiver of supporting cast.  Intel recently revealed Canon’s Video Products Group is “excited” about the performance it can offer the video content production market.

Hiroo Edakubo, Group Executive of Canon’s Video Products Group stated, “We are excited about Thunderbolt technology and feel it will bring new levels of performance and simplicity to the video creation market.”

Of course, this is hardly a confirmation that we’ll see Thunderbolt in future Canon HDSLRs; however, given the blending of categories between still and video cameras nowadays, the 5D Mark II and family are nearly as much a video camera as they are a still camera.
