Maximilian59 said:I was at photokina now for five days and can say: Canon has the largest area in the mid of there exhibition where nothing is shown. Really nothing but a repeating video on the wall. I estimate it is about 250 squaremeters with a black floor. Of course they have all their gear there and new bodies. But if you go to an exhibition and all you can get from a leading company is nothing to take with home, that is a pitty. Not much really new. A lot of people go there to collect bags and papers. I do expect to get printed information on an exhibition.
Canon also makes printers. But no real specialists there. Maybe one. Hey we are not only taking pictures for our harddrives! Canon makes beamers: There were no beamers from Canon. Seems they don't want us to look at our pictures.
I am a canon shooter for 40 years and no canon basher.
The stand was more like 50x50 square meters = 2500, not just 250 squaremeters. Didn't see an XC15 or C700, which is strange because now Photokina is clearly also a video tradeshow - which Canon supports by showing two future 8K cameras and lenses people could even test themselves. Not much logic behind the whole Canon presentation in Cologne.
