Interview With Canon USA’s President and COO about the EOS R

Interview With Canon USA’s President And COO About The EOS R
The Canon EOS R. High resolution model coming in 2020?

Dave Etchells of Imaging Resource had a conversation with Mr. Kazuto Ogawa, Canon USA’s President and COO.

The Canon EOS R is obviously at the center of the conversation.

DE: Now that we’ve seen the EOS R, we’re kind of wondering who the specific audience is for it, in that it’s not at the high-end like the 5D Mark IV or a 1D X Mark II, but it’s a lot more than a 6D II or an 80D. Where do you see the market for it, and how are you bringing it to that market?

KO: Of course, customers can always choose the best products, but we don’t categorize them, saying “Okay, this camera is this market, this camera is this kind of market.” We don’t say that kind of thing. But judging from the specification and the current EOS line, more or less, the 5D, 6D, or the 80D; a similar position to that. So higher-end enthusiasts, or as a backup camera for professionals, that kind of category. 5D Mark IV, 6D, these are the full-frame cameras, right? The positioning of them. Read the interview here…
