Canon doesn’t believe in large sensor compact cameras, future of semi-pro APS-C is questionable, EOS 70D is coming soon


In an interview with dpreview Masaya Maeda (Managing Director and Chief Executive, Image Communication Products Operations at Canon)  made some interesting points on the directions Canon might be taking in the future:

  • There is no room for large sensor compact cameras like the Sony RX100.
  • Canon EOS 70D camera is coming: "Some day in the future. Without fail".
  • The future of semi-pro APS-C DSLR cameras is questionable: "That's something we're considering at the moment. From our semi-pro users there's still demand for APS-C but in the future, I think we will see an increase in the number of full-frame models."
