Collaborates with FedEx Office, Sims Recycling Solutions and Close the Loop to Offer Customers Ink Cartridge Recycling
 
LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., September 27, 2011 – Continuing its commitment to environmental responsibility and sustainability, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging, announces a new nationwide inkjet cartridge recycling program. Designed in collaboration with FedEx Office®, Sims Recycling Solutions and Close the Loop, this program utilizes the best environmental practices in treatment of recyclable materials.
 
Canon PIXMA printer users can now drop off empty genuine PIXMA inkjet cartridges at more than 1,600 FedEx Office Print and Ship Centers across the United States. From FedEx Office locations, cartridges will be consolidated by Sims Recycling Solutions, who specialize in the large-scale processing of electronic waste. After being consolidated by SIMS Recycling, the Genuine Canon ink cartridges go to Close the Loop, a "material recovery" company specializing in the recycling of inkjet cartridges. This program will be free of cost to all Canon consumers.
 
"With the rise in consumer environmental awareness, Canon is pleased to offer customers the opportunity to participate in this national recycling program," said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies and Communications, Canon U.S.A. "Environmental responsibility and awareness have always been a top priority for Canon, and recycling is one of the simplest yet most beneficial aspects of this."
 
The recycling program will tie into the Canon Generation Green initiative that focuses on helping to reduce the environmental burdens in all stages of a product's lifecycle. Generation Green is designed to provide business partners, customers and consumers a way to identify and learn about the various eco-conscious features and solutions that Canon has to offer, including possible cost savings through energy efficiency.
 
In addition, components from the recycled cartridges can be turned into materials for other products. Close the Loop's innovative products include felt-tip pens and markers made from inkjet plastics and inks; industrial colorants made from recycled ink; recovered metals that can be recycled into new steel and aluminum ingots; and scrap plastics that can be turned into the company's synthetic "eLumber" and various eLumber products.

Canon made some non-Camera announcements yesterday. I'll send you directly to the Canon USA press releases for the details:
 
Canon U.S.A. Enhances Creativity With New PIXMA Printers
Canon U.S.A. Announces New Desktop Accessories For Today's Business Professionals
Canon U.S.A. Expands imageCLASS Laser Multifunction And Printer Lineup With Seven New Products
Canon U.S.A. Commemorates The 20th Anniversary Of Its Jamesburg Location
 
I have a current model Canon X Mark I Premium Black Desktop Calculator - it looks great on my black back-painted glass desktop. The new models would replace my wireless keypad as well. Very nice.
 
Sorry for being a day late on these announcements. I arrived home at 1:00 AM this morning after three days on the road. I'm behind on email replies as well - please be patient - I'll be responding soon.

Canon CA has moved the EOS 1Ds Mark III to the archives (thanks Edward).
 
This seems like an unusual move - unless a replacement model is soon to be announced. I already suspected that a Canon EOS 1Ds Mark IV announcement was coming soon - this occurrence feeds my guess. Perhaps an August announcement?

In a press release issued today, Canon UK has announced the EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II Lens.
 
Europe-only? Canon USA has said nothing about this new lens - I'm inquiring.
 
Update: At this time, Canon USA has no information about the availability of this lens in the US.

"When is the Canon EOS 5D Mark III going to be announced?" is the big question hitting my inbox these days. And that is a good question - one that Canon has not answered publicly.
 
Last year, my guess was that the EOS 5D Mark III would be announced in August 2011 with availability in December. The reasoning behind this answer was that the Canon EOS 5D Mark II was announced 3 years after the Canon EOS 5D and August is historically the month of one of Canon's biannual major DSLR, lens and flash announcements. The 5D II became available in December (to those who preordered early).
 
Today, I'm much less optimistic about seeing a 5D Mark III this year.
 
Why?
 
First, the Canon EOS 1Ds Mark IV announcement did not happen in its historical timeframe (August 2010) - and has not happened to date. I expect the Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III to be updated before the EOS 5D Mark II.
 
And second, the disaster in Japan was hugely disruptive. Details of Canon's recovery have been absent lately, but I have not been hearing any optimistic news coming from the affected area. I'm happy that we can still buy most current Canon DSLRs and lenses.
 
So back to the question: "When is the Canon EOS 5D Mark III going to be announced?" As with the rest of Canon's unannounced products, no one who knows is allowed to say. My complete guess is that we will not see an upgrade to the 5D II available until at least mid-2012.
 
The advice I've been giving is to get the incredibly successful Canon EOS 5D Mark II now. It has impressive image quality and you will most likely get a LOT of great shots from it before even my last-year-estimated 5D Mark III arrival date.
