Newsday has reported that 60 employees – formerly of Canon USA's Melville, NY location and primarily in the camera division – have been laid off.
 
The site goes on to say:
Canon employed 1,569 people in Melville in 2017, according to the most recent state records. It must report its local employment annually to the state and to Suffolk County, both of which aided in the construction of Canon’s $500 million headquarters near Exit 49 of the Long Island Expressway.
 
The company moved from Lake Success to Melville in 2013 after a 25-year search for a new home. It has exceeded the employment promises made to the state and Suffolk so far. State records show Canon's employment cannot fall below 1,360 people or it would have to pay back some of the grant money and tax-break aid it has received.

New AI-Integrated Platform Can Help Photographers Advance Their Craft, Save Time with an Improved Workflow as well as Easily Organize and Share Their Photos
 
MELVILLE, NY, February 27, 2019 – In 2017, approximately 1.2 trillion photos were taken; turning millions of people into prolific photographers1, who are spending a tremendous amount of time arranging and searching through their library of photos. To help photographers streamline their workflow and continually improve their craft, Canon U.S.A., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the company’s first online photo-community platform – RAISE. This new platform utilizes artificial intelligence (AI) to help photographers organize and categorize their photos through auto-tagging.
 
Features and benefits of RAISE include:
 
  • Organize – Through the use of Canon’s AI engine, photos uploaded to the platform can be auto-tagged through category and subject tags, as well as photo-centric tags such as the composition, style, emotion and color. Users can upload high-resolution JPEG images to the platform and all photographers retain ownership of all images uploaded to RAISE.
  • Explore – Photographers can receive insights from the RAISE community to learn and help improve their skills to step-up their photography. They can also draw inspiration from the platform with a feed personalized for them based on their own uploaded photos, tags and preferences.
  • Share – Photographers can create Collections within RAISE to privately share with current and prospective clients as well as loved ones, who may not be a part of the RAISE community. A photographer’s work can also be shared publically within the community to receive recognition as well as photo-centric compliments from other photographers, like “great lighting,” beautiful composition,” etc.
An Adobe Lightroom plugin version of RAISE, which is compatible with Adobe Lightroom Classic CC, is currently scheduled to be released next month. This will further enhance the usability of the RAISE features such as auto-tagging images within a user’s Lightroom library through RAISE collections in the platform.
 
“Creativity is born from community – from collaboration with like-minded individuals,” said Kazuto Ogawa, president and chief operating officer, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “With RAISE, we are building that community for photographers. Through this new platform, photographers from all different professional backgrounds and skill sets can come together to share their talents and connect with others in the community. Simply put, we hope RAISE will inspire the next generation of photographers to RAISE the bar and propel their creativity to new heights.”
 
The new platform along with Canon’s latest solutions will be showcased at this year’s Wedding Portrait & Photography Show (WPPI) in Las Vegas from February 27 - March 1 in the Canon booth #121.
 
For more information about RAISE and/or to join the community, please stop by the Canon booth at WPPI or visit, raise.usa.canon.com.

MELVILLE, NY, February 5, 2019 – On February 3rd, Canon U.S.A., a leader in digital imaging, was proud to see an estimated 70 percent1 of professional photographers in the Atlanta stadium captured the Big Game between Los Angeles and New England with Canon cameras and lenses. The sidelines were filled with Canon’s iconic white barrels from the opening kickoff to the final whistle. In addition to the sports photographers using Canon camera systems throughout the stadium, an extensive array of Canon HD and 4K UHD broadcast lenses were used to help deliver the live telecast to over 100 million viewers.
 
“As one of the premier sporting events in the world, the Big Game has become an iconic piece of American culture,” said Kazuto Ogawa, president and chief operating officer, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “The opportunity that these photographers have on such a large stage is one that can launch a career with the push of the shutter. Canon is proud to help support these photographers on this important assignment, while also helping to broadcast every inch and angle of the game for viewers to enjoy at home.”
 
A fixture at major sporting events throughout the year, the knowledgeable staff from the Canon Professional Services (CPS) team was on site at the stadium in the week leading up to game day to assist photographers in a multitude of ways. The CPS team kicked off preparations by bringing in loaner gear to supplement the arsenal of cameras and lenses owned by Canon professionals. On site, credentialed photographers were able to bring their gear to CPS for a thorough clean and check to help ensure their equipment was in peak condition and ready to go. Right before game day, the CPS team hosted a Canon-sponsored luncheon dedicated to photographers capturing the Big Game. A Canon broadcast lens technician was also on site at the stadium in the days leading up to the Big Game, providing cleaning and maintenance services to help ensure optimal image quality could be achieved for the vast television viewing audience.
 
For veteran sports photographer and Canon Explorer of Light Damian Strohmeyer, Canon and CPS have always been a great resource throughout his career. Strohmeyer has shot the Big Game for 33 years, with 2019 marking his 31st consecutive year.
 
“Each year, CPS pulls out all of the stops for the Big Game,” said Strohmeyer. “But quite honestly, CPS service and support is phenomenal all year round. My Canon gear is incredibly important to help me get the job done. I always know what is going on with my gear, and I’m always supported if I need a replacement or want to try something new. Knowing that I have CPS behind me gives me great peace of mind – especially at an assignment as important as the Big Game.”
 
In 2019, Canon Professional Services will be on site to assist professional photographers at over 25 engagements, including major sporting, auto racing, Hollywood and political events.

From Canon USA:
 
MELVILLE, N.Y., April 3, 2018 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, has announced that Mr. Yuichi Ishizuka, the company’s president and chief operating officer, has taken a new assignment as president and chief executive officer of Canon Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) as of April 1, 2018. This announcement marks the culmination of a thirty-three year tenure with Canon Americas for Mr. Ishizuka, who also holds the position of managing executive officer for Canon Inc. in Japan.
 
Canon U.S.A. has announced that Mr. Kazuto Ogawa will succeed Mr. Ishizuka in the role of president and chief operating officer. Mr. Ogawa comes to Canon U.S.A. from Canon China, where he served as executive vice president. Mr. Ogawa brings with him over three decades of experience with Canon, including positions across the globe.
 
“I’d like to thank Mr. Yuichi Ishizuka for his strong leadership, visionary spirit and tireless dedication to Canon U.S.A., where he provided the same innovative direction that he will bring to his new role overseeing Canon Europe, Middle East and Africa,” said Joe Adachi, chairman and chief executive officer, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “It is with great honor that I announce the appointment of Mr. Kazuto Ogawa to the position of president and chief operating officer of Canon U.S.A. On behalf of the company, I welcome Mr. Ogawa to our team and look forward to working alongside him as we continue to cement our status as an imaging leader.”
 
A graduate of Waseda University in Tokyo, Japan, Mr. Ogawa began his career with Canon Inc. in 1981. Between the years of 1995 and 2005, Mr. Ogawa held positions with Canon Singapore, Canon Hong Kong and Canon China before returning to Canon Singapore to serve in the role of president and chief executive officer. In 2008, Mr. Ogawa was named president and CEO of Canon Canada. Following that, he was named as an executive officer of Canon Inc. in 2011. He was later appointed executive vice president of Canon China in February 2014, and became a managing executive officer of Canon Inc. in April 2016.
