From Canon USA:
 
MELVILLE, N.Y., October 18, 2016 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced that their service operation in Ridgefield Park, New Jersey has relocated to 125 Chubb Ave., Suite 100N, Lyndhurst, New Jersey. The new Professional Service & Support Center is geared toward industry professionals and photo enthusiasts and is designed to support the imaging community in the New York metropolitan area. This facility will be open Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM on a walk-in basis with no appointments needed.
 
At this new location, Canon will showcase many of its latest imaging products in the professional products showroom with a Canon technical expert on-site to demonstrate product features and answer questions. The state-of-the-art facility also offers repair and maintenance operations for Canon’s extensive lineup of professional Cinema and Broadcast lenses, EF series photography lenses, Cinema EOS and EOS Digital SLR cameras, and high-definition camcorders. Repair operations at the facility include six state-of-the-art lens and camera adjustment rooms, Canon’s most advanced adjustment and calibration equipment, spare parts inventory, and experienced repair staff.
 
“The new facility in Lyndhurst will provide an inviting location for Canon’s existing customers as well as new customers looking to learn more about our products,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “This move also continues the expansion and improvements of our 100 percent U.S.-based service and support network.” The Lyndhurst facility is one of three service facilities that Canon has made available to professional clients, joining the Canon Hollywood Professional Technology & Support Center, located in Hollywood, California, and the Chicago Professional Service & Support Center, located in Itasca, Illinois. These facilities provide local support to key markets and deliver an average repair process time of less than two days for CPS customers.
 
Additional camera and lens service facilities for both professional and consumer clients are located in Jamesburg, NJ, Costa Mesa, CA and Newport News, VA.

From Canon:
 
TOKYO, October 18, 2016—Canon Inc. announced today the successful development of the world’s first indium phosphide (InP) immersion grating. Strengthening its lineup of immersion gratings, which includes gratings made from germanium (Ge) and cadmium zinc telluride (CdZnTe), Canon is contributing to even greater progress in cosmological observation by expanding the range of observable infrared frequencies.
 
In order to retrieve information contained within light emitted from space, astronomical telescopes and man-made satellites are equipped with spectroscopes—devices that incrementally divide light by its different frequencies—that play a vital role in cosmological observation. Compared with typical reflective elements, immersion gratings enable spectrometers that are smaller in size and realize higher levels of performance. With the addition of an InP immersion grating to Canon’s lineup, spectrometers could be reduced to approximately 1/27th the volume of those equipped with typical reflective elements that cover the same frequencies. Overcoming restrictions on size and weight, which, until now, made it difficult to launch man-made satellites equipped with high-performance spectrometers, is expected to further expand the possibilities of cosmological observation. What’s more, the application of this grating to next-generation large ground-based telescopes, which face the problem of ever-increasing sizes, could lead to reductions in size without sacrificing performance.
 
With the addition of an InP immersion grating, Canon’s immersion grating lineup now covers light from near infrared to far infrared, enabling observation of almost the entire spectrum of infrared frequencies used in the field of astronomy (from 1 to 20 µm). Infrared light can be captured from much farther distances than visible light, making detection of matter in space possible on a molecular, and even atomic, level. As such, the new InP immersion grating could facilitate research into not only the origin of life and planets, but also the origin of the universe itself, contributing to even greater developments in space science.
 
While the benefits of fabricating immersion diffractive gratings were realized long ago, because the transmissive semiconductor materials suited to the infrared frequencies used in the field of astronomy (from 1 to 20 µm) are particularly brittle, achieving a surface of virtually perfect regularity with grooves measuring only a few nanometers proved difficult. Canon applied its own ultra-precision processing technology, cultivated through the manufacture of precision components, using only machining processes to successfully develop immersion gratings even with such brittle semiconductor materials. The resulting InP immersion grating realizes an arrangement of 990 steps at 47 µm intervals.
 
Diffractive elements for use with high-dispersion infrared spectra ordinarily have an absolute diffraction efficiency of 50–60%. Canon’s InP immersion grating, however, achieves an absolute diffraction efficiency of approximately 75%. With its high-efficiency performance, enabling superior light capture even amid low light intensity, it will enable small telescopes to achieve high precision measurement, and large telescopes to measure infrared light from much farther distances in space.
 
Canon will host a presentation on its indium phosphide immersion grating at the International Conference on Space Optics 2016, to be held from October 18 to 21, 2016, in Barritz, France.

Developer Steffen Gerlach has created a free program for Windows users – A Sharper Scaling – which he claims produces better enlargements than Photoshop's bicubic interpolation.
 
For those that want to preserve details in large prints while cropping heavily, this might be a plausible solution.
