On Display for the First Time in the U.S. will be the New Cinema EOS C100 Mark II Digital Video Camera, EOS 7D Mark II and PowerShot G7 X Digital Cameras along with the Latest in Lenses and Professional Printing Solutions
 
NEW YORK, October 23, 2014 - Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, will demonstrate its latest digital camera optics and printer lineup, including the recently announced EOS C100 Mark II Digital Video Camera, at PhotoPlus Expo 2014 in the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City, October 30 - November 1, 2014 in Booth #121.
 
Visitors to the Canon booth will have the opportunity to see the new EOS C100 Mark II, the latest addition to the Company’s Cinema EOS line of professional Super 35mm digital cameras. Additionally, PhotoPlus Expo attendees can try, firsthand, the powerful new EOS 7D Mark II Digital SLR camera, the full line of Canon EOS and Cinema EOS cameras, EF and CN-E lenses, Canon’s professional and consumer camcorders, and the latest in PowerShot cameras including the new PowerShot G7 X. The Company will also be showing its gallery of PIXMA PRO and imagePROGRAF large format professional inkjet prints and will feature stunning images from Canon’s Explorers of Light, as well as live printing demonstrations throughout the show.
 
For the first time at PhotoPlus Expo, the Canon booth will feature images from the Austin, TX, and Seattle, WA, portions of the 2014 PIXMA PRO City Senses Tour. Attendees can experience this interactive image gallery that brings the printed image to life through the senses of touch, taste, smell and sound. The PIXMA PRO City Senses Tour began in 2013 and this year traveled to three new cities -- Boston, MA, Austin, TX, and Seattle, WA, with celebrity hosts and photographers Donnie Wahlberg, Michael B. Jordan, and Joel McHale.
 
Canon will continue its Live Learning Stage educational series with a combination of lectures and live photo shoots featuring professional photographers, videographers and Canon Explorers of Light. Professionals such as Scott Kelby, Alex Buono, Peter Read Miller, Adam Jones and Michele Celentano will discuss and demonstrate their personal expertise and share their experience with audiences. The Live Learning Stage presentation series, which is open to all attendees, will take place throughout the duration of PhotoPlus Expo. Canon will also host demonstrations of portrait lighting using Canon’s Speedlite system, time lapse video shooting, 4K video for still-frame output to PIXMA PRO-100 and imagePROGRAF iPF6400 printers, and an EOS 7D Mark II demonstration.
 
Canon Solutions on Display
Attendees will be treated to stunning images in amazing detail and accurate color courtesy of the REALiS WUX6000 and REALiS WUX400ST LCOS projectors, casting images onto a large 130-inch screen. The demonstration will show how REALiS projectors can help professional photographers showcase their work in a large format to clients in studios and galleries to help them visualize for image selection or entice them to order large-format prints. In addition, a REALiS WUX400ST will be displaying a digital signage application running Canon commercials on a loop, an ideal solution for both advertising and education fields.

Canon Professional Services will once again host the CPS Lounge where Gold, Platinum and Cinema CPS members can have their Canon equipment (up to two current Professional DSLR bodies or lenses*) cleaned and checked during Expo hours starting Thursday, October 30th through Saturday, November 1st in Room 2D12.

Tamron 16-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD Macro Lens
From Tamron:
 
Tamron Co., Ltd. (President & CEO: Morio Ono; Head office: Saitama-shi), a leading manufacturer of precision optics, announced that it had produced a total of 5 million high-power zoom lenses* for interchangeable-lens cameras as of September 30, 2014.
 
Over 22 years since Tamron released the AF28-200mm F/3.8-5.6 Aspherical (Model 71D) in 1992, the company has continued to develop innovative high-power zoom lenses as a "pioneer of high-power zoom lenses" such as further expanding the focal range, realizing astounding lightweight and compact structure, supporting digital SLR cameras, incorporating VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanisms, and implementing the PZD (Piezo Drive) ultrasonic motor.
 
Tamron has announced that it has produced a total of 5 million Tamron high-power zoom lenses as a result of the development of high-power zoom lenses spanning the past 22 years.
 
At present, Tamron has a wide lineup of high-power zoom lenses supporting various camera formats. In particular, during 2014, the company has released the 16-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD MACRO (Model B016) for APS-C sized digital SLR cameras with a world-first 18.8x zoom, the 28-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD (Model A010) supporting full-frame digital SLR cameras, and the 14-150mm F/3.5-5.8 Di III (Model C001) for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras.
 
*Tamron defines high-power zoom lenses as lenses with a 7x zoom or higher.
 
See Tamron's All-In-One Zoom History and Tamron's Currenty High-power Zoom Lineup (.pdf).
