The Canon Online Store has 15% off of all refurbished gear:
 
Refurbished Canon DSLR Cameras
Refurbished Canon Lenses and Flashes
 
These are incredibly hot prices! For example, the refurbished Canon EOS 7D is in stock (at the moment) for only $1,155.15. At these prices, you can likely make money on resale of the gear should you need/want to do so later. Act extremely fast as I doubt supplies will last! (thanks Scott)

Canon UK has announced that its Pro Solutions 2011 show – a two-day event for photography, video, and broadcast professionals – will be held on 25 and 26 October 2011 at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London.
 
Now in its third year, Pro Solutions has been designed to be the largest and most comprehensive consumer-focused exhibition of Canon’s imaging products where visitors can experience Canon’s complete workflow solutions, from image capture to output. Its aims are to educate and inspire visitors and to demonstrate to them how Canon technologies, and those of compatible products, can be used in their digital workflow to generate increased revenue and business.
 
The Pro Solutions 2011 show will be centred on extensive displays of Canon products, including professional DSLR cameras, L-series lenses, pro HD camcorders, large format and A3 inkjet printers, and broadcast lenses. Visitors will have the opportunity to see live demonstrations of professional workflow solutions, plus there will be a comprehensive schedule of free seminars given by Canon Ambassadors and renowned photographers and filmmakers from a wide spectrum of genres.
 
The convergence of stills and video technology will be an extremely important element of the show and visitors will be able to gain a greater understanding of how to develop and evolve their businesses in a rapidly changing market. As in previous years there will be a wide range of companies at the show who provide tailored products, services and solutions to professionals, and visitors will be able to ‘try and buy’ products at the show.
 
Susie Donaldson, Consumer Marketing Director, Canon UK and Ireland said: "We are delighted that the Pro Solutions show will return again in 2011. The feedback from visitors and exhibitors from last year’s show was very positive. Last year professional image makers used the show to get hands-on with the entire Canon professional range, and the information shared at the seminars and live demonstrations gave them a vital insight into how to maximise their business potential. Canon is proud of our unique proposition of image-capture to image-output, and the content for this year’s Pro Solutions Show 2011 looks set to be really exciting."
 
Entrance to Pro Solutions will be free for all those who pre-register online. The show opening times will be from 11am to 8pm on Tuesday 25 October and from 10am to 5pm on Wednesday 26 October.

According to a Reuters article:
 
"Canon (7751.T), the world's largest maker of digital cameras, is exploring the possibility of launching a mirrorless model, featuring many of the capabilities of an upmarket single-lens reflex camera in a more compact body, a senior company executive said."
 
Also:
 
"Masaya Maeda, head of Canon's camera division, also said the company had restored camera production to pre-quake levels at the end of June, after supply chain woes hampered output after the March 11 disaster, and it now plans to hike production capacity in Taiwan."
