Canon’s “biggest product launch yet” Will Be Revealed Online next week

Simon Skinner - 1 month ago

Canon has announced that it will be live-streaming a significant launch for the first time in the brand’s history and everyone is invited in for the big reveal. 

The launch, which has been arranged for next week, has been labelled “its biggest product launch yet” and for the very first time, the brand will live stream the launch event, which will be made available directly to the public.

Canon REIMAGINE

The ‘open’ launch will take place next Thursday [9th July 2020] at 13:00 BST, carries the title, ‘REIMAGINE’, which was Canon’s original label for the launch of the Canon EOS R system in September 2018. Curious?

Canon is obviously dropping a big hint as to what the big reveal might contain. We can only imagine that Canon appears to be inviting us all to tune in to witness the arrival of more products relating to the EOS R system. 

Canon has confirmed that a number of its high-profile ambassadors will be in attendance at the event for Q&A discussions of the launch, including:

  • Ilvy Njiokiktjien – a much-lauded Dutch documentary photographer who has worked all over the world, taking photographs for NGOs and major global publishers
