In particular, through the government's economic open-door policy and domestic-demand expansion policies, Vietnam has achieved economic growth approaching 6% over the past few years with further expansion expected in the future, which has created a pressing need for Canon to establish a strategic marketing system in the country.
 
In response to these circumstances, Canon has newly established Canon Marketing Vietnam Company Limited in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
 
In addition to existing business segments, through the new marketing company, Canon also aims to further expand its market share within such industries as production printing, and motion-picture and broadcasting production.

1. Name: Canon Marketing Vietnam Company Limited
2. Location: Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
3. Representative: Noriji Yoshida (to be appointed President & Legal Representative)
4. Business activities: Import, distribution, sales and service of Canon products in Vietnam

7. Equity structure: Canon Singapore Pte. Ltd.: 100%
8. Establishment: June 2012
11. Start of operations: August 2012 (tentative) Note: Canon currently operates the following manufacturing subsidiaries in Vietnam: Canon Vietnam Co., Ltd., established in April 2001, which manufactures such products as inkjet printers and laser printers

This Canon EOS 1D X AFMA Bug update just in from John:
 
"With AF4 menu option Orientation Linked AF Point set to the default of Same for Both Vert/Horiz, behavior of the AFMA setting is normal. But, when it's set to Select Separate AF Points (which mine was), the AFMA zeroing out occurs."
 
"Simply changing that one setting from default 'breaks' the AFMA behavior ... and resetting that one setting to default restores the correct behavior."
 
"Trowski figured this out, also."
