What Else is Coming for Photokina? [CR2]

What Else is Coming for Photokina? [CR2]

We’re told a lot of the imaging line will see new products.

We’ve confirmed that Canon will announce new projectors at various price points for Photokina. You can also expect new printers in the Pixma line, at least one of the printers will be “Pro”. No word on the much desired 17″ Pixma Pro printer. We’ve heard it was in development, but we’re not sure when it’s coming to market.

We can also expect a couple of PowerShot announcements. A new durable camera is likely. We’re still waiting on the SX60 to make an appearance, and this seems like a good time do it.

Lots more to come…
