Creative Canon Invite for March 22
« on: March 15, 2013, 07:16:52 AM »

Projector Pen
Canon sent this invitation out for the press event next week on March 22. Beyond the standard paper invitation, they sent a pen with “IXUS/PowerShot” on it. The pen doubles as a projector, and projects the invite information.

It’s interesting that EOS is not on the pen, unless the function of the pen is a hint about a new PowerShot.

This is one creative invitation. Hopefully what is to come will have some more "umf!" in it.

oh yeah great, exactly what the world needs.. another P&S powershot.

Sales (profits) of "lame P&S" fund R&D that goes into DSLR's.(*)
In general, yes, we need Canon (and Nikon and Sony and...) to have profitable P&S products to drive R&D.

lets hope the 70D will be announced and not only

(*) This is a general statement of how business works; I don't have specific figures on sales/profits and how they're used within Canon.

I could be wrong, but I don't recall Canon having invites to major press announcements for P&S cameras.

well then the future looks very grim and canon should start making mobile phones.

If they did make a phone with a good lens/sensor combo, a proper flash, and built-in apps to control them with SLR-level controls, I'd buy one.  I think they'd sell like crazy to all sorts of Canon photogs.

+1.
Nowadays people who want cheap and lightweight P&Ss buy good mobile phones and those who want expensive and bulky ones buy entry-level dSLRs.

Such a creative invite in my mind would mean that it's for the 7d successor instead of the 60d's

Quite a ''revolutionary'' invite, should be followed by the announcement of a 'revolutionary' product!
