This is what should have been in the ad.
‘You want a camera system which keeps up with the latest technology, you want us to innovate, take risks, add features that are standard for other manufacturers, and you tell us this is possible. You want us to invest in advanced sensors which excel in low light, color reproduction and dynamic range, you want 4k video, an EVF and high frame rates in a reasonably priced camera. You say “It can be done.” To all of you, we apologize. Because we don’t see what you see. We see an expensive line of cinema cameras we must protect, and a road map of painfully slow iterations so there’s always a reason for you to spend more money. You love what Sony, Panasonic, and even Samsung are doing, and you see opportunity, you see ingenuity, you see POSSIBLE’
Can we get to 1700 comments!
KAllen: At Canon we see impossible....then give up.
They also make money out of patents also I believe. The use to be in the top 5 a few years ago for new patents. Even bankruptcy will not teach them a lesson. Look at Kodak.
Maybe Canon going in to bankruptcy in a few years like Kodak?
Canon's new super compact is called Grote Zoom and Grote is slang for grotesque...lolz Canon! Another fail like your marketing campaign ;)
stelioskritikakis: 'See Impossible': Canon counts down to... nothing
Their quality in their lenses and cameras (AF problems anyone?!) have been declining for years. There selling on brand image only, not brand quality. Look at the AF problems they have had with the pro bodies over the years and shutter problems with their mid range cameras. Time to go back to the chalk board Canon. It is a D from the consumers
They are counting down to nothing profit in Australia! I think Canon Aus made 5% net profit last year, down from around 25%.
Almost 1600 negative comments Canon. Your marketing needs to be fired.
Sdaniella: Canon Powershot Premium Compact newer "later model" large zoom video (teaser*):
*most have seen a similar (but not exactly same) Powershot G promo video but this has added a bit of Canon 'history promo' covering G1XMkII, G7X, and teaser of new model only shows up at the very end of the video clip (same as screen capture shown elsewhere)
The lens appears to follow pattern of an interchangeable zoom lens, rather than a fixed zoom lens.Sensor size, to keep zoom compact, would have to be smaller, maybe 4/3" sensor.If folks prefer G1X 1.5" sized sensor, then the interchangeable zoom will definitely be a "large zoom" for a Powershot.If the sensor is smaller, like a m43, it will be a model that slots below G1X-series, but above G7X.With an interchangeable "large zoom" compact, with 4/3" (or 2x crop) sensor (18x13.5), it could be an EOS-G mount, and adaptable to EOS-M lenses and EF lenses, too.
Sdaniella is a Canon troll, paid for or works for Canon marketing.
pdelux: 1500+ comments mostly negative.
Theres no such thing as bad publicity!
Got nothing good to sell, just sell the sizzle, not the steak.
The sizzle from Canon is a steaming pile of do do ;)
Canon Australia can't even pay their tax in time...lolz!
Canon spelt fotos wrong...another fail...they should be use to it by now.
Quote from Rob Dunlop from youtube
"We see a world of affordable 4K DSLRs. Canon see Impossible.We see high frame rates, amazing dynamic range, fast responsive EVFs. Canon see Impossible.We see investment in sensor technology to enable the best performance in low light. Canon see Impossible.We see focus peaking, zebras, articulated LCD screens. Canon see Impossible.We see innovation. We see forward thinking. We see inspiration. Canon see Impossible.We buy Sony, Panasonic or Samsung. Canon makes another ad."
The Canon's MD & CE looks dodgy...like their impossible marketing campaign.
Over 1400 negative comments Canon...Wow you failed bro ;)
Is Canon Australia broke yet? I sure this inspiration words will get Canon Australia back in the black ;)
Canon as usual, full of smoke and wind. Marketing at Canon needs to find what real work is about and get a real job. Sorry Canon, Sony will leave you in their dust.
Mike FL: It seems making more sense to compare the $900 LX100 to $500 Sony NEX-6 which has much larger sensor/slow kit zoom lens, but almost same size.
Also, Sony NEX-6 has build_in_Flash and Flip LCD screen which LX100 is lacking.
@Mike FL A iPhone can do 4K, but no where as good quality as a LX100, no zoom lens and it has a crap lens. I like Sony, but you can't compare a NEX-6 AF & kit lens to a LX100 with a Leica/Pana bright zoom lens.
Please don't do fuchsia pink like Pentax.
