Canon UK Launches New Merchandise Collection
« on: March 20, 2017, 07:15:16 AM »
United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, 17th March 2017 – For the first time ever, Canon UK is launching a range of branded clothing and accessories. From vintage camera t-shirts to umbrellas and bibs, you can get fully kitted out this spring.

A selection of the new merchandise has been designed to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the EOS system and features cameras from the EOS archive. Plus, the vintage series includes designs from the original Canon camera “Kwanon” logo, first introduced in 1934.

The new collection includes clothing such as t-shirts, jackets, sweaters and hoodies, as well as accessories like umbrellas, baby bibs, hats and limited edition camera bags.  Camera fans will also be able to get their hands on a miniature Hansa Canon camera model, replicated on Canon’s first production model and Japan’s first high-quality 35mm camera launched in 1936.

Of course they are taking 29 GBP for a shirt. They're Canon.

Now how about another shirt for 49 GBP that has a red ring?

Prices are typical of any manufacturer's official merchandise.
Some people like such things,  others dont.

Don't like it? Then dont buy it

Hi romanr.
Absolutely, I object to paying for carrier bags with advertising on, I would pay for plain ones willingly (and I am encouraged by the reduction in carrier bag usage) and to me this falls in that category.

Hi lw.
It seems to me merchandising (let's just call it what it really is, advertising) for products like this could be cheaper, perhaps offset part of the cost (or reduce the profit margin really) against the marketing budget!  :o :)

Cheers, Graham. (Playing devils advocate ;D ;D)

Of course. Such items never represent their cost of manufacturing or stand up in comparison to similar quality items not sold as official merchandise.

But my point was that the Canon items are no different to the cost of typical official merchandise from other manufacturers  ( and i would guess Canon would be seem as a premium brand)

But if you think these are expensive then compare them with some official merchandise from sporting franchises!!!
