Canon Says Q1 Profit Hit by Weak Printer, Camera Sales

Canon Says Q1 Profit Hit by Weak Printer, Camera Sales

By Canon Rumors | April 26, 2016 | Canon Business General

From Reuters

  • Q1 operating profit falls 39 pct, more than expected
  • Office equipment, compact digital camera sales slump
  • Firm trying to diversify away from consumer cameras (Adds segment breakdown, context)

TOKYO, April 26 Japan’s Canon Inc on Tuesday reported a steeper-than-expected fall in first-quarter operating profit on weaker demand for office equipment in emerging markets and slower global sales of compact digital cameras.

The world’s biggest maker of printers and cameras also cut its outlook for the full year ending December.

For January-March, operating profit dropped 39 percent to 40.1 billion yen ($361.4 million), the company said. That missed the 67.74 billion yen average of five analyst estimates, according to Thomson Reuters data.

Canon said it now expects full-year operating profit of 300 billion yen, lower than a previous forecast of 360 billion yen.

New Battery Grip for EOS 5D Mark IV & More [CR2]

New Battery Grip for EOS 5D Mark IV & More [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | April 22, 2016 | Canon DSLR Rumors

Information for the EOS 5D Mark IV is coming in slowly.

We’re told that the new EOS 5D Mark IV, which will be announced in August will have a new battery grip, the BG-E20. We don’t know at this time if the new camera will use an LP-E6 series battery or not, though we hope it does.

There is no dedicated external wifi transmitter coming for the camera, so that seems to confirm that wifi will be built-in to the EOS 5D Mark IV.

We’re also told that the EOS 5D Mark IV will see the return of the red autofocus point in AI servo mode.

That patent train continues for EF-M lens optical formulas, this time we see a 50-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO lens for APS-C sized sensors. This optical formula patent shows the lens for both EF-M and EF-S mounts. It’s definitely interesting to see diffractive optics development for consumer grade cameras.
