The CP+ Camera & Photo Imaging Show in Yokohama, Japan is normally a time that the Japanese camera companies make major announcements or show off major products that haven't begun shipping. The Canon EOS-1D X Mark III and the Canon EOS RP are a couple of the big announcements in the last couple of years.

Obviously, this is not a normal year.

So is Canon going to be announcing anything ahead of the CP+ 2021 virtual trade show that begins on February 25, 2021?

Judging by the lack of leaks, patents and other signs pointing at a major product announcement, for the moment it looks like Canon is going to be pretty quiet for the show.

I was thinking about what Canon could do for the show to build a little buzz if they aren't going to make a camera announcement.

  • A new feature firmware update for cameras like the EOS R5, EOS R6 and EOS-1D X Mark III would make a lot of people happy.
  • A development announcement of a lens or two, and they could tease the RF lens roadmap a bit.
  • Another concept camera to show the new direction of the PowerShot brand, but we did just get the official announcement of the PowerShot PICK.

There are two other possibilities; they've closed the leaks or they simply aren't going to showcase anything new this year.

Whatever happens, I think something should be announced to get Canon's name back in the news cycle for imaging.
