Back in November, we were told by an unknown source that Canon and GoPro were working on a partnership, we dismissed it a viable rumor and didn’t bother posting about it on this site.
Other sites have started to post about a Canon & GoPro partnership. So we figured we’d also address it, as readers have already started emailing us about this.
The original source told us the following:
Canon will sign a cooperation deal with GoPro. They are interested in the digital image stabilisation and video capabilities of 4K without a crop. GoPro will profit by getting the Canon colour science and undisclosed other key technologies
Canon doesn’t seem to be a company that is much into these types of partnerships, and with GoPro being for sale, it seems like an acquisition Canon could make quite easily if there was a business case for it.
Stranger things have happened, but be mindful of the [CR0] rating on this one.
