Canon update

  • First, Canon filed a patent in Japan for a 11mm f/2 lens for APS-C size sensor (35mm equivalent 17.8mm):

Patent details:

- Patent: 2011-65138
- Focal length: 11.1mm
- Aperture: 2.0
- Angle of view: 49.7°
- 3 aspherical surface

  • Canon developing "ultra-high pixel density  capable of capturing details invisible to the naked eye":

"We produced steady results, including the development of CMOS sensors with an ultra-high pixel density capable of capturing details invisible to the naked eye. We showcased some of our achievements at “Canon EXPO” events held in New York, Paris, and Tokyo from September through November, where we also introduced our future vision with our imaging technology and products. Many who attended these events expressed praise and high expectations for that vision."

  • In an interview with Quesabesde Canon showed again that they are delusional when it comes to the growing mirrorless market: they believe that the Canon S95 and G12 models are sufficient to cover the need of a high end compact camera. Further in the interview Canon's spokespeople made this comment on the Fuji X100: "It has generated much interest, but will have to see how that translates into sales, because $1,000 is a lot of money for a compact".
