Canon five-year expo lands in Europe
Canon’s 4K concept camera, first unveiled in September at the New York leg of its five-yearly expo was one of the highlights of the show as it roled in to Paris for the European leg.
The futuristic 4K concept camera, which is capable of stunning image quality thanks to an 8-megapixel CMOS sensor, can record video footage four times that of current 1080p standards. Equipped with a 1.8f 20x optical zoom lens the 4K concept is sadly not going into production but offers an exciting look at the future of personal cameras.
Joining the 4K concept camera atop the fanciful treats from the Canon Expo in Paris was the latest Cross Media Station from the Japanese company. Capable of wirelessly charging up to three DSLR, compact camera and camcorder devices simultaneously the Cross Media Station also allows for wireless syncing, file transfer and even for images to be sent direct to a friend’s internet connected printer anywhere in the world.
Canon’s Paris Expo, the second leg of the Expo’s world tour that is soon to touch down for the final stop in Asia, outlined the best in current and future digital imaging hardware in the consumer, business and medical markets. See below for video highlights of the European event.
