This Canon Patent Describes Canon’s Prototype 100-400mm Miniature Concept Camera

Canon Patent

Back in February Canon showcased various concept cameras at CP+ 2019.

One of these cameras, the IVY REC, can now be funded on Indiegogo. Another of those concept cameras is a miniature camera with a 100-400mm telephoto soon (image on top).

Canon patent application 2019-0208134 describes optical formulas and technology of the 100-400mm concept camera. Interesting fact: the lens itself appears to be removable. This could mean Canon will make more focal lengths to fit on this diminutive camera.

More Canon patent applications are listed here. Some particularly interesting patent applications we think might get into production are these:

Tamron announces the development of a new ultra-telephoto zoom lens with superior image quality, advanced features and lightweight, compact design

September 15, 2017, Saitama, Japan -Tamron Co., Ltd. (President & CEO: Shiro Ajisaka), a leading manufacturer of optics for diverse applications, announces the development of a new ultra-telephoto Tamron 100-400mm F/4.5-6.3 Di VC USD zoom lens (Model A035) for full-frame DSLR cameras. The advanced optical design of Model A035 includes 3 LD (Low Dispersion) lens elements for greater aberration reduction and Tamron’s original eBAND Coating for superior anti-reflection performance. At 1,115g (39.3 oz) the new lens is the lightest weight in its class* and features magnesium material in key areas of the lens barrel to improve weight reduction, strength and portability. The Model A035 delivers fast and precise autofocus performance and consistently powerful VC (Vibration Compensation) benefits thanks to the high-speed Dual MPU (Micro-Processing Unit) control system that is found in the latest Tamron lens models.

Model A035 is fully compatible with Tamron’s 1.4X tele converter that multiplies the lens’s focal length, and the Tamron TAP-in ConsoleTM which enables lens customizations for focus adjustments, VC mechanism adjustments and more. Additionally, an Arca Swiss compatible tripod mount is available as an optional accessory.

This combination of features and optional accessories join to create a lens that photographers everywhere will enjoy using in various shooting situations, including low-light conditions that require handheld operation as well as those where convenient attachment to a tripod is preferred.
