The CP+ show in Yokohama, Japan started today and the Canon booth is full of the usual gear, along with some concepts that Canon has shown off in the past and mentioned in their last fiscal reports. The folks at DCWatch decided to show off the concepts.

The concept cameras are for various consumer needs. The first one is the Soto Asobi Camera, which is aimed at the action camera user as it’s waterproof and will survive a 6-foot drop onto concrete. Pricing for these cameras will be around $100.
