Apple and Canon plotting tie-up?

Camera giant about to get close to Cupertino?

Rumours of hook-up between two tech titans abound.

Apple and Canon are said to be prepping a tie-up, which could see the two work on new products. Details remain scarce, but a hook-up between the two could be mean some seriously smart new tech.

The gossip comes from Canon Rumors, where the site’s Alex Johnson says, “I’ve received a few pieces of information about an upcoming collaboration between Apple and Canon. What that collaboration is hasn’t been spelled out to me. It could be with the upcoming Final Cut Pro 8, or maybe something more.”

Final Cut Pro would be a good fit for Canon’s top end camcorders and HD-loaded DSLRs. How this would work in practice though is unclear.
