Patent Fun
I must say reading Canon patents makes my brain feel good. What’s especially awesome about Canon and patents is they have about 50 a week!

Here’s one good enough for Ashton Kutcher.

  1. I would like the talking Selphy printer technology to migrate to the DSLRs, so you can talk to your cam to adjust its settings and it would answer back with: “Your pix are cr*p, buy a P&S you poser!!11”

  2. Again, the big boys are in no way shape or form afraid of Red. Canon can take 2 years to work on a model, because in the meantime they’ve put out God only knows how many other models, and that’s just the still camera department. Same with Sony. Same with Nikon. Same with…

    I’m a fan of Red, but they’re not “pushing hot chillies…” as you so eloquently stated. They made one game changing camera, and promises of many more. But they get away with it because the renders are really slick. When you’re motto is “Everything is subject to change. Count on it”, you have to take non released cameras with a grain of salt.
