"TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan's Canon Corp cut its operating profit outlook for the second quarter in a row, below analysts' estimates, warning that sales of its signature high-end cameras will fall this year for the first time since their launch in 2003."

Hint: maybe time to develop a few new products?
