Imaging Resource sat down with Masaya Maeda, Canon's Senior Managing Director and Chief Executive of Canon Inc's Image Communication Products Operations. A lot of topics of interest were covered, including EOS M, EF-S and EF-M lenses, printers and more.
Maeda says Canon will be releasing new printers soon, first up will be the ImagePROGRAF Pro-1000 which will be coming next month for PhotoPlus last we heard. This is the 12 ink, 17″ printer they showed last week at the Canon EXPO in New York City.
When asked about EOS M:
Going forward, and this would be a repeat of what I said before, but we will put more effort into mirrorless, and also, naturally, we will continue to expand the EF-M lens group. In the very near future, I think that Canon will come out with a mirrorless camera that you would really like.
We can also expect new EF-S and EF-M lenses in the near future, unfortunately there was no mention of the EOS-1D X Mark II or EOS 5D Mark IV, probably the two most anticipated products by Canon users.
