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.

Canon are just copying Nikon with this as this was the first camera to debut with an inbuilt projector:

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.
Canon 6d, t1i, 24-70/4L, 20/2.8, 28/1.8, 40/2.8, 50/1.8II, 100/2.8 macro, 70-300/4-5.6, g1x, 430exII, 90ex
Elan 7N with 28-105/3.5-4.5II, Rebel G with 35-70/3.5-4.5, A-1 with 28/2.8, 50/1.8, and 135/3.5

+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.
