I can't think of any (cloud) services that Canon offers that I would be willing to subscribe.

That being said, if it IS a hardware subscription program (e.g., for cameras), I think that would be cool. Maybe it's about time Canon introduced a program like the medium format companies; one that guarantees equipment buyback when the next generation comes out.  This would definitely ease some of the pain of the inevitably high price of a true 1Ds replacement.

First thing I see is the cartoonish cloud on the invite. For some reason I seriously doubt this'll be EOS or high-end equipment related. Basing that on nothing more than a hunch. Am I reading too much into it? Apple's press invites usually have a tiny or subtle hint at what the announcement could be about. Has Canon ever used a "cloud" before? Could they be starting up a cloud based image storage service?
I'm rambling now....what say others....?

Thanks, Mr. Bob. Glad to see I'm not the only one who knows the difference between the city and Lon Gisland.

Canon's new headquarters is not in New York City. It is in Melville Long Island.

Maybe they'll finally release a 28-135 that doesn't feel cheap even when compared with the cheap kit lens that came with my original 300D.

I see 'Cloud' and I think monthly charges.

All future lenses and bodies will only be sold on a month to month rental basis! We at Canon are PROUD to make the change to this model that has been so demanded and begged for by the vast majority* of our customers.
 ;D



*"vast majority hearby legally meaning in this notice approximately 1 or 2 customers"

You're both wrong.

Company Name:   Canon Inc.
Founded:   August 10, 1937
Headquarters:   30-2, Shimomaruko 3-chome, Ohta-ku, Tokyo 146-8501, Japan

And it's not 'new'. Blooming Americans.

Header at the top of this discussion from the "Canadian" Canon Rumors Guy, that we are all responding to:
"From Canon USA
A press event has been scheduled for Wednesday, August 21, 2013 at Canon’s new headquarters in New York."

I believe we are all talking about the blooming USA Headquarters, as stated at the top of the discussion???
