Hikvision is OWNED by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party). OK I guess, if you're in Beijing.Probably has to do with this, just below:
Update #2: I have been told that Canon will announce new PTZ cameras that will cost around $4000 USD. This isn’t a new segment for them though, but their current offerings are $10,000 USD and up.
So, no, sadly, they won't be replacing my $100-$200 Hikvision cameras (which are great for what you pay!)
