Canon Professional Services Program Announces New Points Qualification System and Website to Enhance Membership Opportunities For Emerging Professionals

Canon Hosts CPS Lounge at PhotoPlus Expo 2011 with a Full Roster of Membership Benefit Activities

LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., October 20, 2011 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging, today announced an enhancement to the Canon Professional Services (CPS) program with a new qualification system for membership acceptance. The new CPS professional points system allows an expanded roster of equipment to qualify prospective members into the program. The new points system will help many professionals who were unable to join based on the previous membership requirements.

In April of 2010, Canon extended its CPS membership to qualifying videographers, cinematographers and filmmakers and the overwhelming response received from these professional clients has prompted the need for a third CPS support center. Under the new points system, professional image makers can now qualify with ownership of a broader range of professional products including DSLR camera bodies, professional camcorders, lenses and accessories (speedlites and wireless transmitters, etc). The CPS program is designed to extend Canon's support assistance to imaging professionals with fast service, equipment evaluation loans, and a range of other benefits. For details and additional information on the new CPS points system and to see a comprehensive list of all eligible pro DSLR and Video equipment, please visit the CPS web page at:

Canon will once again host the CPS Lounge during PhotoPlus Expo 2011 at the Jacob Javits Center, October 26th-29th. The CPS Lounge will be open to the public on October 26th at noon, the day before PhotoPlus Expo opens and will be located in rooms 2D02/03 and 2D04/05. In addition to answering questions and providing Clean and Check services throughout PhotoPlus Expo, Canon Professional Services will also host a number of great opportunities for CPS members to enjoy additional membership benefits:

On October 27, 2011, between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. legendary Rock & Roll photographer and CPS member, Bob Gruen will be signing copies of one of his iconic images for the first 100 Gold and Platinum CPS members to visit the lounge. These limited edition prints will be produced on the latest professional Canon printer.

On October 28th from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the CPS Lounge, Canon Explorer of Light, Vincent Isola will be signing prints for Gold and Platinum members. Images will be printed on the latest professional Canon printer.

Free Large Format Print Sample Member Images

CPS Gold and Platinum members are encouraged to bring with them their favorite image file to receive a free large format sample print of their image, courtesy of Canon Professional Services. Throughout PhotoPlus Expo Canon will station an imagePROGRAF iPF6350 large format printer in the CPS Lounge where Gold and Platinum members will be able to receive a sample print of their own image, limited to one print per member.
