Canon has publicly stated that it plans to put notable effort behind specialized cameras as it prepares for the future of the digital camera industry. Therefore, this latest rumor of a PowerShot camera driven by AI would make a lot of sense.

Canon has been showing off an AI-powered fixed-lens camera for some time, the first instance of which happened at the Photography Show in the United Kingdom, and then again last year at CES in Las Vegas. At CES, the camera was called an “intelligent compact camera.” From what has been seen in the past, it’s not the

Canon is preparing for a time when the digital camera market will only ship 10 million units annually, about 8.2% of the number shipped in 2010. With that in mind, the company is slimming down its production, sales, and product lineups going forward.

Toyo Keizai has been publishing some outstanding stories that are delving deep into the digital camera industry, and the latest is based on an interview with Canon’s General Manager of the Image Communication Business Division Takeshi Tokura, the same Tokura who also told Toyo Keizai that 8K was only included in the EOS R5 because Canon

Canon Exec Suggests the EOS R5 Only Has 8K for Marketing Reasons

Canon’s General Manager of the Image Communication Business Division Takeshi Tokura was recently interviewed by Toyo Keizai about the success of the R5 and R6. In it, Tokura seems to suggest that 8K was important to include in the R5 mainly to beat competitors to it.

At launch, there was significant negative press involving the R5’s overheating problems in its 4K and 8K video modes. Tokura says that the reason the camera still continues to sell well despite these hardware limitations is because video performance isn’t important to the camera’s main market.

“I don’t think video-focused users are driving the

Canon’s imaging division general manager Tsuyoshi Tokura has given an interview to Japanese camera website Toyokeizai in which he touches on the EOS R5’s controversial debut for filmmakers. Tokura claims 8K went on there in an effort to be first ahead of other companies, and that he doesn’t care whether it attracts video users or not. There is no big mission to please us… If it gets through a shoot without overheating, we should be grateful but really Canon’s management doesn’t care. “I don’t think video-focused users are driving the reputation of this new product. However, I was particular about …

Yodobashi Camera has published its top ten cameras sold in December of 2020 and the Canon EOS R5 it at the top of the list. While we’re still waiting for BCN+R and CIPA to reveal December sales numbers, this is the second major retailer to report the popularity of the R5 in December.

Echoing reports of product shortages being the culprit for not sustaining top position, Yodobashi

As a showcase of its CE-SAT-1 Earth-imaging satellite, Canon is allowing anyone to take their own photos of Earth from space as part of a demonstration for CES.

From its orbit, the camera is capable of photographing a ground area of around 3.7 miles by 2.5 miles. The satellite is also equipped with a 40cm Canon Cassegrain telescope with a 3720mm
