Canon Netherlands Hints at Unreleased PowerShot Zoom
In the same way it has teased us about upcoming DSLR announcements, Canon Netherlands has posted a video that hints at an upcoming PowerShot zoom announcement ("grote" means "large" in Dutch). You can find the page that contains the video here (scroll down near the bottom of the page).
 
In my opinion, this type of marketing was certainly appropriate for big-time DSLR announcements – but teasing a PowerShot zoom seems to be a little over-the-top for me.

Photographer/developer Adriano let us know that his Cook Picture Styles are now available free for download.
 
From the developer:
"Cook Picture Styles were the result of more than one year of developing to get the best possible dynamic range from a Canon DSLR and to create the best real-world colors without introducing a flat look. The picture styles reduce the need of post production grading, without hurting the textures in the image or introducing gradient banding. Cook Picture Styes are now free for use and distribution."
Basically, there are 14 picture styles intended to be used in-camera (denoted by the "_cam" suffix) and 14 picture styles which can be applied in Digital Photo Professional (denoted by the "_dpp" suffix).
 
I tried out the profiles and they do seem to help the overall balance of contrast in certain situations. They could prove useful – so go ahead and pick them up while you can. [Sean]
 
Download the Cook Picture Styles (with full instructions).

From Hollywood Films to Publishing and Medical Technologies, New Inspirational Brand Ethos Spotlights the Breadth of the Company’s Capabilities and Contributions to Developing Imaging Technologies that Showcase the Impossible for Customers
 
MELVILLE, N.Y., October 7, 2014 — Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is proud to announce “Canon See Impossible”—a branding effort aimed to inspire customers to see impossible with Canon products. As part of the companywide marketing initiative, the iconic brand will roll out a new logo visual to include the addition of the “Canon See Impossible” tagline, accompanied by a 3-D visual of an expanding box, symbolizing the Company’s desire to break the boundaries of what is possible and shift the focus from Canon as being solely a manufacturer of quality digital imaging products to a Company that empowers the creative spirit within its people and customers.
 
Central to the new marketing initiative, the light within the borderless box represents the dedication the Company has to building new collaboration paths with both consumers and commercial clients to constantly innovate and to challenge convention. As the next chapter in the Company’s long history unfolds, Canon is working to listen, adapt, and build a prescient understanding of the changing market forces it faces today and the opportunities they present.
 
Creative is featured on seeimpossible.usa.canon.com, a digital hub housing consumer, professional, and commercial stories of inspiration, imagination, and innovative end-user applications of Canon imaging technology.
 
“As a technology-based brand, Canon is constantly challenged to empower its customers in today’s high-tech and fast-paced world in which new apps and innovations are launching every single day,” said Joe Adachi, Chairman and CEO, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “With imagination and customer focus at the core of the Canon business model, ‘Canon See Impossible’ will highlight the combined technological innovation and human ingenuity that makes the impossible possible. Our new rallying cry will extract creative thinking from a place of isolation, encourage exploration of the unknown, and showcase our creativity as it impacts the real world with limitless possibilities.”
 
The Company’s heritage in imaging technology advancement and migration into new, applicable business domains has been going on since the 1930’s. The foundation of success was initially built with film cameras, which led to the evolution of high-quality digital cameras for families and professionals, and eventually led to groundbreaking imaging platforms for Hollywood productions that use Canon Cinema EOS Camera technology. Remarkable technologies that have empowered end-users to see the infinite possibilities of the image and to make the impossible come alive go beyond photography applications. Advances in optics development, imaging sensors and powerful image processing technology have been harnessed to deliver a wide range of cutting-edge solutions today. One of the latest developments has been with eye-care technology, allowing ophthalmologists to see deep into the eye, helping to enable early detection, treatment and prevention of eye disease.
 
Canon has introduced groundbreaking developments in digital imaging reproduction hardware and software solutions. Canon has created new business models, in conjunction with key partners, such as on-demand book printing, empowering aspiring authors to publish and bring their literary visions forward. Central to the “Canon See Impossible” campaign is cultivating storylines that illustrate how Canon technology, combined with end-user ingenuity, breaks new ground daily and how, together, the sharing of ideas and opportunities will help provide a picture of future imaging technology and service development direction.
 
Elements of “Canon See Impossible” will be launched in print, digital media, and live events and will run on various video media platforms during the fourth quarter of 2014, extending into 2015 and beyond as part of a multiyear effort by Canon.
 
Note: The See Impossible website just got a little more interesting.
