French site Phototrend sat down with a bunch of Canon executives for an interview at CP+ 2024.

While the interview is in French, you can get all the content with a machine translation. Here are some of the discussed topics:

  • Canon plans to feature artificial intelligence and deep learning technologies in future cameras
  • Canon claims to have a 48% share in the global market of interchangeable lens cameras
  • There will be more RF-S lenses
  • Canon does not have any real plan to open the RF mount specifications to other manufacturers but there are non-disclosure agreements with other manufacturers regarding certain types of lenses and their positioning in the market
  • Third party lens manufacturer do not have the same access to camera functions as Canon lenses have, ergo: Canon lenses do perform better than third party lenses
  • Artificial Intelligence will come, and has the primary function to improve autofocus, to assist with subject recognition and with in-camera image processing (low light, noise, aberration corrections)
  • Global shutter doesn’t seem to come to consumer cameras any time soon
  • Canon has been asked many times about the EOS R1, the execs say, but they can not say when it will be released. However, this is the year of the Olympics and from what I got from the machine translated interview, some select photographers might testing the EOS R1 during the games.
