Japanese dc.watch.impress published an interview with Canon’s Managing Director, Mr. Masaya Maeda. The article is long and in Japanese. The interview touches on many aspects of Canon’s strategies. You can read the original article here, and the machine translation by Google is also available, although it is rather poor and missed a lot of the original meaning.
The interview topics include the following :
- Cinema EOS and video features of DSLRs
- EOS-1D C
- EOS-7D MK II
- Mirrorless Camera strategy
- PowerShot N
Apparently, EOS-7D Mark II will not be announced at the CP+ show in Yokohama, Japan next week. Instead, Canon may announce the development of the MK II with a later date for official release. Also, there may be a Firmware update to the EOS-1D C camera coming very soon. If some of my Blog readers out there understand Japanese, please read the interview and let me know what you get out of it. Thanks.
