Canon Middle East today unveiled what it’s calling its ‘Autumn collection’. This comprises over 40 new consumer products including digital still, SLR and video cameras and lenses, ‘Pixma’ branded photo and multifunction printers, ‘SELPHY’ compact photo printers, and three new multimedia projectors. Canon’s 12 new Pixma branded printer products include five multifunction printers (offering print, scan and copy functions), all of which feature the firm’s new ‘FINE’ (Full-Photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering) technology. With this it claims users can output quick, photolab quality prints. Canon also claims these new models are up to 58% faster than previous Pixma machines, plus they include the firm’s new ‘Chroma Life100’ feature, thanks to which Canon reckons printed photographs will remain fade resistance for longer than ever before. On the digital camera front, Canon has unveiled seven new models. These include three new Digital IXUS products, which now incorporate the same DIGIC II processing technology as Canon’s professional EOS-1 series D-SLR products. Its SLR line has also been bolstered by the launch of the EOS 5D; a full-frame sensor camera that Canon today suggested creates a whole new D-SLR category. The EOS-1D Mark II N meanwhile replaces the EOS-1D Mark II, offering a higher performance buffer to deliver a 48 frame burst in JPEG and 22 frame burst in RAW. Canon also launched what it claims is the world’s first four megapixel CCD digital video camera – its flagship MVX4i, plus three new ‘Selphy’ branded compact photo printers and the LV-X5 multimedia projector, aimed at the education market. The firm’s new 2100-lumens LV-7240 and 2500-lumens LV-7245 projectors meanwhile are aimed at business users. Canon has yet to confirm Middle East pricing for these new products, but once these details have been finalised its new releases should hit stores over the next few weeks.
