Press release:

Canon PowerShot N honored with Bronze International Design Excellence Award

TOKYO, July 3, 2014—Canon Inc. announced today that the Company’s PowerShot N digital compact camera (released in April 2013) has been recognized with the Bronze International Design Excellence Award (IDEA) in the Entertainment category by the Industrial Designers Society of America.

Considered the preeminent international design awards competition, the International Design Excellence Awards, launched in 1980, aim to foster business and public understanding of the importance of industrial design excellence to the quality of life and the economy. Products are reviewed based on not only their functions and aesthetic quality, but also such factors as level of innovativeness, as well as benefits to users and to society as a whole. The awards program recognizes the best product designs from a wide range of sectors, including industrial products, consumer electronics and household goods, along with vehicles, sports items and furnishings.

Canon developed the new-concept PowerShot N for users looking to enjoy various ways of capturing and sharing photos via social networking sites using smartphones, tablet PCs and similar devices. Featuring an all-new design and novel operability, the camera includes such features as a Creative Shot mode, which automatically adjusts composition, color and lighting to produce five unique images along with the original photo, as well as a shutter ring that shifts vertically to snap photos. In addition, a Mobile Device Connect Button allows the camera to easily connect to a smartphone or other device with a single touch of a button.

In addition to the IDEA bronze award, the Canon PowerShot N has also been honored with a prestigious 2013 Good Design Award in Japan and 2014 iF Design Award in Germany.

Encouraged by the recognition of the Company’s design excellence, Canon will continue striving to realize products that combine the highest levels of performance and design.

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV To Feature 4K Video?

Photobucket

Canon EOS 5D Mark III price check: Amazon, B&H, Adorama, Canon USA, Digitalrev, eBay

Just recently a rumor surfaced stating that Canon may announce the EOS 5D Mark IV at the beginning of 2015. Now I have been told (thanks) that the successor of the EOS 5D Mark III could feature 4k video. The feature is going to be implemented, so the source, to further push the 5D into the videographers domain.

Currently Canon is featuring 4k on the EOS-1D C (Adorama | B&H Photo). It would be a more than welcome move if the 5D Mark IV would deliver 4k! Canon added HD recording to the EOS 5D Mark II, let’s hope the EOS 5D Mark IV will make the next step. Just to remind: full HD has a 1920 x 1080 resolution, 4K has a resolution of 4096 x 2160.

Take it with a grain of salt. Canon has been very smart in keeping their plans secret in the last time. It’s still a long time until we will see the EOS 5D Mark IV.

Canon And Microsoft Sign Patent Agreement

Canon Announcement

Were will this lead? A rather obscure patent agreement between Canon and Microsoft. Will Canon’s imaging technology find its way into Microsoft’s smartphones (made by Nokia)? Looks like.

Press release:

Microsoft and Canon sign patent cross-licensing agreement

REDMOND, Wash., and TOKYO — July 2, 2014 — Microsoft Corp. and Canon Inc. on Wednesday broadened their strategic alliance with the announcement of a broad patent cross-licensing agreement. With this agreement, Microsoft and Canon gain licenses to each other’s highly valued and growing patent portfolios.

“This collaborative approach with Canon allows us to deliver inventive technologies that benefit consumers around the world,” said Nick Psyhogeos, general manager, associate general counsel, IP Licensing of the Innovation and Intellectual Property Group at Microsoft. “Microsoft believes cooperative licensing is an effective way to accelerate innovation while reducing patent disputes.”

This agreement covers a broad range of products and services each company offers, including certain digital imaging and mobile consumer products. Microsoft and Canon have a long history of collaborating to bring high-quality, cutting-edge products to consumers, including color technology. Contents of the agreement will not be disclosed.

“This agreement is a natural extension of our longstanding relationship with Microsoft and commitment to developing innovative technologies,” said Hideki Sanatake, senior general manager, Corporate Intellectual Property & Legal Headquarters of Canon Inc.
