Canon making smaller SLRs to compete with Mirrorless Rivals?
"It's not a question of whether or not you have a mirror. There is a consumer need for good-quality cameras to be made smaller. We will meet this need."
Since the day that Nikon eventually affiliated themselves in the league of mirrorless cameras, the whole wide world came into realizing what will its rival and most evaluated competitor got to do with this. The battle of smaller presumer cameras, Nikon and Canon? What now?
Well finally, Canon gave us tidbits on their next step in the battle arena and whose side they will join. Eventually, they prefer to stick with DSLRs, but smaller. Spokesperson of Canon, Masaya Maeda didn’t give us elaborate details, but here is how he smashed Reuters’ inquiry :
“It’s not a question of whether or not you have a mirror. There is a consumer need for good-quality cameras to be made smaller. We will meet this need.”
And to add a little bit more on this experience, Maeda hyped up the fact that it will never be a challenge for his company to retain mirror (a viewfinder, which fill help you obtain better results and higher shooting rates) in a smaller design, and that they’ve actually made smaller (very small actually) SLR cameras before during the film era.
We are all wishing that Canon’s new sweetheart wouldn’t be any bigger that G11, with much love and respect.View Article Source »
