Creativity has a new home with Canon Light Awards
Exciting monthly challenges push boundaries of imagination, craft and skill.
Sydney, Australia, 26 November 2014 – Canon Australia has announced an all-new creative challenge exclusive for Canon camera users in Australia – the Canon Light Awards.
Created by photographers for photographers, the Canon Light Awards will encourage creative shooters to push the boundaries of their imagination, craft and skill. In return, Canon has prepared a program to help them achieve their photography aspirations, including personalised feedback for winners from Canon Master Photographers, and one of Australia’s biggest photo competition prize pools.
At Inter Bee 2014 Canon showed off a a prototype 7×19.7N KAS D Cinema servo lens that’s capable of 8K footage (7,630 x 4,320). Japanese broadcaster NHK has been using the lens for their 8K testing. This lens will never be available to the general public.

The CAMSLINGER 160 Street Edition bag introduces a new concept of carrying a mirrorless camera on the hip or as a sling bag (works also for a superzooms or a smaller DSLR). It’s not a solution to transport large amounts of gear as the bags are on the smaller side, but for daily live when out shooting with smaller gear it will be a very quick and good solution. I have one and I love it. The prizes: Cosyspeed CAMSLINGER 160 Street Edition bag
