Canon has unveiled a new version of its EOS-1D X digital camera aimed at the professional market, one it initially released four years ago. The EOS-1D X Mark II is an upgraded version of the original, housing a new 20.2-megapixel full frame CMOS sensor with dual DIGIC 6+ image processors, giving it a boost in terms of speed and image quality, as well as allowing it to film 4K and 1080p video at 60 and 120fps respectively with a "Dual Pixel" CMOS autofocus.
Canon has launched a collection of new cameras at CES, with five more imaging devices entering the PowerShot range. A pair of super-zoom PowerShot SX cameras, the 20.3-megapixel SX540HS and the 20-megapixel SX420 IS, are joined by a trio of compact snappers in the PowerShot ELPH product line: the 20.2-megapixel PowerShot ELPH 360 HS, the 20-megapixel ELPH 190 IS, and the 20-megapixel ELPH 180.
Canon has launched a trio of cameras, following after yesterday's quiet surfacing of the imaging devices on company websites. The EOS M10 is an entry-level mirrorless camera with self portrait modes and a lens that can shorten to make it easier to carry around, while the PowerShot G5 X includes a high-resolution electronic viewfinder, and the PowerShot G9 X is billed as a lightweight camera that can be and easily carried anywhere due to its size.
Canon is experimenting with virtual reality, and has recently shown off a prototype VR headset. Revealed at the Canon Expo, the prototype has a relatively similar construction to other headsets, though it does require users to wear separate headphones due to a lack of built-in audio, and rather than be worn on the head, Canon has instead gone for a design with two stalks below the display that are used by the viewer as handles.
Shortly after unveiling its work on a 250-megapixel camera sensor, Canon has confirmed it is working on another high-resolution digital SLR camera. The camera will house a 120-megapixel sensor, the same resolution as a sensor it showed off in 2010, and is more than double the sensors in its current high-resolution camera range, with Canon developing the imaging device specifically for professional use in creating 8K video content.
Canon has revealed it is continuing to work on higher resolution sensors, and has topped the 120-megapixel sensor it showed off in mid-2010 by unveiling a more recently developed unit with a 250-megapixel resolution. The APS-H sensor, capable of creating a photograph with a resolution of 19,580x12,600, is claimed to have the world's highest number of pixels in a CMOS sensor smaller than a 35mm full-frame sensor.
Canon has confirmed it will be bringing the EOS M3 mirrorless camera to the United States in the near future, following its launch in European and Asian markets earlier this year. The compact snapper, which houses a 24.2-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor with the DIGIC 6 image processor, will be arriving in the country in early October, with it keeping exactly the same list of specifications as its international counterparts.
Canon today announced an expansion to its Pixma printer line. Revealed today are seven new models of printers utilizing Canon's print technology with the Pixma MG7720, three models in the the MG6800 series, and three models of the MG5700 series of Wireless Inkjet All-in-One (AIO) printers.
Canon has added two more enterprise-focused printers to its ImageRunner and ImageRunner Advance lineup. The color ImageRunner Advance C350P and the black-and-white ImageRunner 1435P both take up a small footprint in an office, have high-capacity toner bottles, can be easily integrated into managed document services, and while they both have separate drum and toner-based print engines, they share consumables with others in the range to help minimize support costs.
Canon has unveiled a new PowerShot compact camera with a large zoom and resolution. The PowerShot G3 X packs a one-inch, 20.2-megapixel CMOS sensor with a DIGIC 6 image processor into a dust and water-resistant case, while on the front is an f/2.8-5.6, 25x optical power zoom lens, the equivalent of 24-600mm lens, which also benefits from an improved five-axis Intelligent Image Stabilization system for clearer images.
