Canon celebrates 30th anniversary of launch of first Bubble Jet inkjet printer

Canon Celebrates 30th Anniversary Of Launch Of First Bubble Jet Inkjet Printer

TOKYO, Japan, August 26, 2015—Canon Inc. today commemorated the 30th anniversary of the launch in 1985 of the BJ-80, the Company’s first inkjet printer employing Bubble Jet technology.

In the mid-1970s, Canon researchers carried out research and development into the wide range of possibilities offered by inkjet technology. In an experiment conducted during that time, the tip of a soldering iron came into contact with a syringe needle containing ink, causing ink droplets to spurt out of the tip of the needle. This incident led to various experiments and tests which, in turn, resulted in the creation of Canon’s proprietary inkjet technology that uses the heat from a heater to eject ink droplets. In October 1977, the Company submitted a basic patent application for the world’s first thermal inkjet (Bubble Jet) technology, laying the foundation for future inkjet printer development.

More Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II specs and new image leaked

More Canon EF 35mm F/1.4L II Specs And New Image Leaked

More tidbits about the upcoming Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II lens leaked at Digicame Info.

  • The price of the EF 35mm f/1.4L II will be around 275,000 Yen (that’s $2,300, I think the lens will cost around $2,000)
  • Will be released in Japan in mid October 2015
  • The lens uses Blue Spectrum Refractive optics (BR) to obtain low chromatic aberration. BR elements greatly refract the light in the short wavelength region
  • Chromatic aberration is corrected by significantly refracting the particular wavelength range
  • The lens has a new, more advanced weather sealing
  • The lens is more resistant to impacts

Another set of specs leaked yesterday. The Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II will be announced before the end of August, most likely together with the EF-M 15-45mm f/3-5-6.3 IS STM lens and the Rebel SL2. Stay tuned on Canon Watch!
