I'm actually hopeful the Kids Mission Camera becomes a deliverable product. I'd love to scoop up a few of those for my nieces and nephews. They have a Kodak Printomatic (aka Polaroid Snap) already, but they burn through the ZINK paper at an alarming rate, so the camera fun is usually a short-lived experience.
Pffft! That thing is dead on arrival if it doesn't offer full frame 4k and 25 stops of dynamic range. We both know your nieces and nephews will move to the Sony system if Canon disappoints them again!

Normally we assume that 'market' means 'viable market'

If Canon only sold 100 of these Mission cameras we could say there wasn't a market for them.
We have bought many things at work which have had the serial number 1, and most of those items have had a market of less than 100 :)

The Kids Mission Camera is going to be the first ILC with IBIS and optical stabilisation and the pros will go totally bananas because they'll have to wait until 2030.

Instead of this nonsense i need info if the new rf 70-200 is a pump design or not. No interviewer i saw has asked that yet.....

Although I would much rather have seen that Canon introduced the 7D Mk III and offered theis cropped action clients a step up in technology.
Everybody but you knows that the 7D cameras are announced in late August. Unfortunately, not every year.

It looks like it extends. In some of the pictures you can see a raised switch on the other side. Usually, that's a lock switch.

Unless they frequent these forums... then they know that "real photographers" don't care about DR, 4k, IBIS, fps, dual slots and so on, only about Canon color science (as long as Canon has the lead there) :).

I know you are joking, but it sounds like your expectations for a $2000+ photo tool don't go beyond a kids' toy camera that costs 20 times less?

Is there a real market for this stuff these days? Yeah, yeah, I know some people will buy these things, but that’s doesn’t make a market. Cheap digital cameras have been dying for years now, and will continue to do so.
But perfect for introducing a toddler to photography due to the tough build. My grandson is all over my gear when I get it out. One could deduce that there is a market or it won't be made. ;)

Just "gave" an old point and shoot (Canon, of course!) to my 5 yr old Grandson. He now goes on "photo shoot" walks with me and we critique his images at home. I have looked at cameras for kids and nothing quite fits what I think he would need. I'd like to see this concept camera come to market.
Exactly what these are for. Good fun with the grand kids! My protege is almost two. Another couple of years and I can't wait!
