Canon has exhibited a 4K concept hybrid camera at its expo in Paris. First showcased at the company's Expo 2010 in New York last month, the camera is built around an 8MP CMOS sensor, 20x (24-480mm equiv.) zoom lens and offers 60fps 4K resolution video recording - almost four times the resolution of full HD videos.

Canon Unveils New Concepts for Future of Imaging at Canon EXPO 2010 Paris
Canon Europe today unveiled a wide range of new products and concept imaging technologies at Canon EXPO 2010 in Paris, which will shape the future of imaging for consumer, professional, business and healthcare environments.

The company will also outline its commitment to further develop its services business to deliver value for customers with a new Consultancy Services business, entering the enterprise information and media management market.
In the 'New Perspective of Imaging' zone, Canon's technologies give visitors a unique view into the power of image; to see images in a way they could not have seen before - making the invisible, visible.
A compact and lightweight Multi-purpose Camera is revealed, which supports both video and still image capture with ultra-high definition 4K resolution. Suitable for both work and professional use, it has a newly developed CMOS sensor for video shooting at high frame rates in excess of 60 frames per second.
Interactive mixed reality; combining the real and virtual worlds in real-time to create a visual experience in which users can not only "see" images in a visual space, but also control and create them.
