More About the Canon MM100-WS by Cinema5D.
« on: November 30, 2017, 08:40:27 AM »
The folks at Cinema5D had a chance to interview Canon’s Terunori Tajiri to learn more about Canon’s little MM100-WS modular camera. The camera may look like a GoPro and other action cameras, but that is not its purpose. It’s being targeted as a B2B product.

From Cinema5D:

It should be noted that, first of all, the MM100-WS is not an action camera, but a modular device meant for the B2B market as a solution to fulfil the needs of companies. For example, it could prove useful as a body cam in the security and maintenance sectors, although it may also find a home in broadcasting, as it can be connected to external devices like recorders or encoders for wireless video transmission. Read the full story

Most of the technical specifications for the camera are still not known, but a few things are. We know it’ll shoot up to ISO 12800 for video and ISO 6400 for photos, and that it has a maximum video resolution of Full HD along with electronic image stabilization. The camera is quite small measuring in at just 40mm x 40mm x 21.6mm, it is also splashproof and dustproof.

Hi Folks.
For someone who is not in to acronyms and text speak but prefers whole words with one or more syllables, would anyone care to clarify B2B?
I am fed up with googling acronyms and then trying to work out which of the 1/2 dozen alternatives I am supposed to be reading!

Thanks, Graham.

Business to business; Canon don't see this as a general retail product, more like something a company or gov dept would buy in large numbers for a specific though broad range of uses.
Too often we lose sight of the fact that photography is about capturing light, if we have the ability to take control of that light then we grow exponentially as photographers. More often than not the image is not about lens speed, sensor size, DR, MP's or AF, it is about the light.

I share your pain. I actually knew what B2B was, but I find the use of acronyms annoying. If I were king of the world I would impose a strict AP style rule: No use of acronyms on first reference! Proper style would be: "...targeted as a Business to Business (B2B) product..."

In journalism school (back in the day when there were journalists and not just opinion writers masquerading as journalists) I was taught this valuable adage: "NEVER assume your reader lacks intelligence, but ALWAYS assume your reader lacks information."

Hi Folks.
Thank you for the enlightenment.
I too was taught to write titles in full with the acronym in brackets, it's not that hard to do, eliminates so much confusion and yet authors are often too lazy to bother.
The camera looks like a neat bit of kit.

Cheers, Graham.
