Random Thoughts: The See Impossible Teaser

Random Thoughts: The See Impossible Teaser

There have been a lot of good suggestions in our forum on what we may see tomorrow. I think most are wishing for some new EOS or Cinema EOS products, but I don’t think that’ll be happening.

I think that new box logo in the teaser is the important piece. I haven’t seen it used for any other product or service in the past, if you have, please let me know where it was used. The logo does have a “business” feel to it and we’re probably gearing up for a new line of business imaging products.

Some background on the See Impossible domains from our forum
“Totally random info. just to make the rumor mill buzz… I did a search for “Canon see impossible” and discovered that canonseeimpossible.com, canonseeimpossible.net and canonseeimpossible.org were all initiated about a year ago.  They just happen to be hosted on the same server as Phaseone.com!?  Probably just coincidence as there are about 4000 sites hosted there.  IP Address:  216.146.46.11 , 216.146.46.10

canonseeimpossible.com brings up the same page as the seeimpossible.usa.canon.com link.  The page seems to have just recently gone live.  While I was searching, the host that had been reported as being in British Virgin Islands, switched to a U.S. site.”

Canon USA has posted a teaser, and it’s being called “See Impossible”. In the past, these types of teasers have pretty much always been a letdown to the masses who were hoping, or even expecting new hardware.

Canon and Stella McCartney Unveil Limited Edition Camera Bag Collaboration

Canon and Stella McCartney have announced an exclusive collaboration unveiling the limited edition Linda camera bag. Named after Stella’s mother and specially designed for the Canon EOS 100D White, the Linda camera bag combines fashion and technology with creativity and style.

Functional without compromising on style and true to Stella McCartney’s vegetarian philosophy, the Linda camera bag is completely cruelty free, crafted with an innovative Eco Alter Nappa leather alternative which uses natural vegetable oil coating that is less harmful to the environment. The stylish box shaped bag in a colour combination of matte neutral tones and metallic finish has been custom designed to house the Canon EOS 100D White, the world’s smallest DSLR camera. The chic EOS 100D is the perfect camera for those looking to explore the world of photography, whatever their skill level.

The camera bag also doubles as a sophisticated everyday handbag featuring an adjustable strap to be worn either over the shoulder or as a handheld tote.

A limited run of 1,000 bags will be produced and will only be available as a special package with the EOS 100D White. Within the UK, the package will be available from Harrods and Selfridges for £1,200.

The special design collaboration between Canon and Stella McCartney was presented last night at the launch of the the 2014 London Stella McCartney Green Carpet Collection during London Fashion Week at a certified sustainable event co-hosted by Livia Firth, Natalie Massenet, Stella McCartney and Anna Wintour. The limited edition camera bag was presented alongside the designer’s exclusive sustainable evening capsule collection.

Stella McCartney is best known for her creativity, sense of style, innovation, and modern and ethical approach to fashion – making the brand a natural partner for Canon, which shares a mutual commitment to responsible and sustainable business.

Stella McCartney said, “Growing up with a mother and a sister who are photographers, I have fond memories of them pulling out cameras from their bags snapping and capturing moments. It was a no brainer to create a bag for this brilliant Canon camera, because it was really exciting to design something fashionable and stylish that encourages people to take photographs.”

Susie Donaldson, Marketing Director at Canon UK and Ireland said, “Photography and fashion have always gone hand-in-hand, with beautiful, evocative imagery at the heart of Fashion Week. For almost a decade, Canon has played an integral role in capturing the beauty, design, style and excitement of Fashion Weeks across Europe. We are thrilled to be collaborating with Stella McCartney, one of the most talent and admired designers, and extremely proud to be able to launch this striking piece at London Fashion Week.”

Pricing and availability

The Linda camera bag, complete with EOS 100D White will be available from Harrods and Selfridges on from early November 2014 for £1,200.
