Canon See Impossible Explained

Canon See Impossible Explained

From AdWeek
“As smartphones continue to erode sales of cameras and equipment, traditional brands are building digital platforms that double as marketing assets. Today, Canon launched the multiyear “See Impossible” campaign, shifting the marketing focus away from products and onto customers’ stories.

Canon’s campaign centers around a new microsite, which houses a series of digital videos that highlight how customers use a range of products. One 45-second clip shows how an author used the technology to self-publish her book. Going forward, Canon will expand the site’s content to include submissions from consumers and clients.”

Random Thoughts: The See Impossible Teaser

Random Thoughts: The See Impossible Teaser

There have been a lot of good suggestions in our forum on what we may see tomorrow. I think most are wishing for some new EOS or Cinema EOS products, but I don’t think that’ll be happening.

I think that new box logo in the teaser is the important piece. I haven’t seen it used for any other product or service in the past, if you have, please let me know where it was used. The logo does have a “business” feel to it and we’re probably gearing up for a new line of business imaging products.

Some background on the See Impossible domains from our forum
“Totally random info. just to make the rumor mill buzz… I did a search for “Canon see impossible” and discovered that canonseeimpossible.com, canonseeimpossible.net and canonseeimpossible.org were all initiated about a year ago.  They just happen to be hosted on the same server as Phaseone.com!?  Probably just coincidence as there are about 4000 sites hosted there.  IP Address:  216.146.46.11 , 216.146.46.10

canonseeimpossible.com brings up the same page as the seeimpossible.usa.canon.com link.  The page seems to have just recently gone live.  While I was searching, the host that had been reported as being in British Virgin Islands, switched to a U.S. site.”

Canon See Impossible Teaser

Canon USA has posted a teaser, and it’s being called “See Impossible”. In the past, these types of teasers have pretty much always been a letdown to the masses who were hoping, or even expecting new hardware.

High Megapixel Camera Development Announcement Mentioned Again [CR1]

High Megapixel Camera Development Announcement Mentioned Again [CR1]

Another mention of a development announcement for a high megapixel pro body from Canon coming in 2014. There were no specifications given, or a date that this could happen.

CR’s Take
I’m still not convinced this isn’t a product of the previous posts on the topic being recycled, as well as Canon’s own mention of it. With all the hype surrounding the EOS 7D Mark II and the fact we won’t see the camera until November, I can’t see anything happening for a new DSLR before the EOS 7D Mark II comes to market.

Saying goodbye can be the hardest part of any rental. With our new Keeper program, you can try it, then buy it!

Just rent an eligible item, and then we’ll give you a starting purchase price based on the age of the copy we send you. We’ll even give you a credit for a portion of the rental fees. Even better, you can handle the entire transaction with just a few clicks on our website (although we’d be more than happy to handle it over the phone if you are just dying to talk to one of our friendly customer service agents).

What equipment is eligible?
Almost all of our equipment is eligible. If it is impossible for us to get a quick replacement for a particular piece of gear, either because it is backordered or because our suppliers are slow to get us new copies, it may not be offered for sale. If you see a piece of equipment not offered for sale, just send us an email. In many cases, we just haven’t gotten around to updating the product to be eligible for sale.

Next Rebel Going EVF? [CR1]

Next Rebel Going EVF? [CR1]

The next Rebel, apparently coming in Q2 of 2015 will be the first Canon DSLR to use a electronic viewfinder. The camera will also feature the 70D’s 20mp sensor that uses split pixel technology and also feature DIGIC 6 like most of the new cameras. This combination of technologies would raise the bar considerably as far as image quality goes in the Rebel line.
