Hong Kong Teaser Announcement
« on: April 25, 2014, 06:50:13 AM »

What was the teaser from the other day on the Canon Hong Kong Facebook page for? They announced the PowerShot G1 X II, which was already announced every place else a long while ago. Yet again, a regional announcement is of little interest.

Aren't all pancakes Ultrawide?  ;D
Otherwise the syrup would never stay on top!

Everything I've seen published about this camera so far says it's mediocre, overpriced, and it's bested by competitors at every turn.

Too bad; I had good hopes for this.

Walter: Were you listening to The Dude's story? Donny: I was bowling. Walter: So you have no frame of reference here, Donny. You're like a child who wanders into the middle of a movie and wants to know...

Hi all, I am a Canon fans from Hong Kong, and I think the picture attached is is not an announcement for G1X2 since the G1X2 is already announced on 25 March in Hong Kong and I already took G1X2 back to home on 27 March ^^ , we can find the announcement of G1X2 in the following Canon (HK) webpage
http://www.canon.com.hk/en/corporate/press_release/pressReleaseDetails.do?prmid=10896

Anyway, the picture dated Apr 24 maybe related to some promotion event, promotion webpage or promotional video new to G1X2 in hong kong website, I can found a dedicated promotion page with Flash animation effect yesterday in Canon (HK) website, but it seem to be disappeared today.

Hope everyone enjoy the new G1X II, cheers!!! ^___^

FD mount would be too bold a move! No way that makes it onto the 5D4. Marketing is holding that back for the 5D5.

So, what they are saying is that the marketing team was unaware that the camera had already been released months earlier? That has to be embarrassing!!

Maybe it was a VIP situation, only without Doris Day and Rock Hudson?

Actually it's just the teaser for the local G1X-II TVCM unveiled online on April 24, nothing else

Check PR for recent comments
http://photorumors.com/2014/04/21/new-canon-teaser-for-april-24th/

It has been known locally that Canon's ad campaigns have always been inflated and exaggerated which has caused some public furore

Until late 2012 Canon HK's agency partners included Dentsu, Edelman and Lamb.
