MELVILLE, N.Y., October 21, 2015 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 Professional Inkjet Printer, a 17-inch, large format solution packed with significant technological advancements, such as a new print head, new ink set and a new image processing engine, resulting in stunning image quality designed for photographers who are “equally obsessed” with the printed image.

This is the first in a new series of imagePROGRAF printers that are marked by the distinctive Canon red line across the body of the printer, echoing the same red line on Canon’s EF L-Series lenses.

The launch of the first printer in the new imagePROGRAF PRO Series of printers further illustrates the commitment Canon has to providing the imaging community with solutions that help deliver superb output true to a photographer’s obsession.”

The BBC on Canon’s ME20F-SH, the ISO 4.5M camera that can see in the dark

Thanks Cheryll for the link. Trent Darby on YouTube posted a clip from a BBC show where they briefly talk about the Canon ME20F-SH, a camera with ISO 4.5M that literally can see in the dark (see here if you don’t believe it).

The Canon ME20F-SH can be pre-ordered at B&H Photo and will go on sale in December for select customers at $30,000.

From B&H’s Explora article about the Canon ME20F-SH:

Enclosing a super-sensitive full-HD 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor inside a small form factor body, the new Canon ME20F-SH Multi-Purpose Camera can record color images in near-complete darkness, while its cubic chassis can be placed unobtrusively on set or in the wild. While the sensor is only 2.2 megapixels (effective) in resolution, each pixel measures 19 microns, making it more than 7.5 times larger than an equivalent 18.1 megapixel 35mm full-frame sensor. This large pixel size allows the sensor to gather much more light in all situations. This helps images taken in low-light situations maintain a low noise floor for cleaner and more vivid video.
