22 Oct 2019 — Explore and Share More with the New Canon EOS M200 Lightweight and packed with user-friendly features, the EOS M200 is the newest interchangeable-lens camera for those looking to create better content for sharing on social media. Canon announced the latest addition to the EOS mirrorless interchangeable lens camera line-up: the EOS M200. A compact and intuitive camera, the EOS M200 is perfect for those looking to up their social media game from smartphone photography, to deliver higher quality images and videos to their followers. The camera is also ideal for users who desires higher quality selfie stills and videos or enthusiasts who wish to embark on their photography journey. Stills and videos that stand out At the heart of the EOS M200 is a 24.1megapixel APS-C size CMOS sensor. The Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology, which is proprietary to Canon, has been improved and the number of AF zones available for automatic selection has expanded to a maximum of 143 points, ensuring that users can achieve high-speed AF with fast live view shooting effortlessly, for sharp high-quality images. Being an interchangeable lens camera, users have the flexibility of selecting different EF-M lenses for various purposes, be it for macro, portrait, wide angle or telephoto shots, allowing more creative expression for various content. The camera can also be adapted to use Canon’s existing line-up of EF/EF-S lenses, which further expands the freedom of imagination for users to deliver unique content. What is a portrait or selfie if the eyes are not in focus? As eye is the window to the soul, the Eye Detection AF ensures that the subject’s eyes are always in focus even if the subject is constantly moving—allowing the user to focus more on nailing that perfect shot with more natural expression. With the new DIGIC 8 image processor, ISO capabilities have been enhanced on the EOS M200 and a maximum ISO speed of ISO 25600 (expandable to ISO 51200) is achievable for still images. This makes capturing clear images in dark locations possible. The EOS M200 is also capable of shooting 4K videos at a smooth 24p and 25p, with high image clarity and blurred background expression. Stylish design and useful features Designed to be slim and lightweight, the EOS M200 body weighs approximately 299g and can easily fit into bags. With two colours to choose from, the black EOS M200 comes in a premium matte finish whereas the white EOS M200 is designed with a textured grip and a sleek silver ascend on the top body—that perfect style companion. Crafted not only for ergonomic comfort, it is designed with intuitive three mode dial on the top ensuring quick access so the user would not miss that perfect moment that they want to share with their followers. The camera also comes with the Creative Assist function, where users can easily adjust the desired look of photos directly in-camera with intuitive words such as “brightness” and “background blur” without having prior knowledge of shutter speed, aperture or white balance. Additionally, a variety of in-camera creative filters allow users to add effects to their photos - such as grainy film, HDR oil painting, watercolour and fish-eye effects. Equipped with a Silent Shooting mode, users of the EOS M200 can shoot still images in scenarios such as presentations, music recitals and art museums without worrying about the shutter sound. The LCD screen of the camera tilts 180 degrees with a dedicated self-portrait mode. With most social content being consumed on mobile, content with vertical orientation is key. The EOS M200 fulfils that criteria with the ability to record movies that would automatically playback in vertical position on mobile devices. Movies can also be easily recorded with the record button displayed on the LCD. What’s more, the visual guide, which is particularly useful for those who are new to photography, is built into the EOS M200’s user interface. This includes a shooting mode guide, a menu display with item descriptions, along with hints and tips to understand technical terms. There is also the optional Tripod Grip accessory HG100-TBR that can also double up as a table tripod and for steadier handheld recording, which will come in handy for content creators who take selfie shots or videos. Smartphone connectivity In addition to Wi-Fi, the EOS M200 supports Bluetooth connection as a way to connect to smart devices such as smartphones and tablets. Once the initial pairing setting is complete, the EOS M200 and the corresponding smart device will automatically connect via Bluetooth. After pairing and selecting a function within the app, the camera will automatically be connected with the appropriate connection method. Users can transfer images via Wi-Fi connection from the EOS M200 to a smart device in two ways: the conventional method of transferring only selected images or send images to the smart device simultaneously while shooting. The latter will be especially useful for those who want to manage captured images quickly so they could upload to social media.

11 Oct 2019 — Canon Launches the New Océ Colorado 1650 Incorporated Océ FLXfinish Technology for Matte or Gloss Prints Independent of Media Canon unveiled the Océ Colorado 1650 printer at PackPrint 2019 in Bangkok, Thailand, expanding the range of roll-to-roll large format devices that feature Canon UVgel technology. The Océ Colorado 1650 features two innovations in the form of a new flexible ink, and Océ FLXfinish technology, which will boost quality standards for customers requiring more media versatility. The new 64” production printer builds on the breakthrough productivity, output quality, never seen before automation and media versatility of the Océ Colorado 1640. It delivers optimal performance for print service providers (PSPs) producing high volumes of applications such as self-adhesive vinyls, wall coverings, canvasses, soft signage and vehicle graphics requiring a high degree of flexibility for mounting and framing. Mr. Steve Ford, Managing Director, Production Printing Asia, Canon said that we are very excited to introduce the Océ Colorado 1650 in Southeast Asia at the PackPrint 2019. By delivering consistently great quality, our large format graphics roll-to-roll and workflow solutions are helping print service providers to achieve operational excellence and extend their capabilities to new exciting applications. This allows them to focus their resources and energies on creating value for customers that will translate to sustainable business growth.” said The fact that we can now also offer the additional choice of matte and gloss prints at the push of a button is a very exciting development for graphics producers, enabling them to unlock new business opportunities in premium interior POS and décor, with a single printer and without switching media or inks. Mr. Steve concluded. Océ Colorado 1650 – The Flexible Choice The Océ Colorado 1650 works with a new version of Canon UVgel ink, designed for maximum flexibility by increasing the ‘stretchability’ of each cured ink droplet. This means output from the printer can be used for soft signage applications that require bending, folding or stretching. In addition, the Océ Colorado 1650 incorporates Canon’s unique Océ FLXfinish technology, a new approach to LED curing which allows the user to choose between matte or gloss modes for each individual print to achieve different aesthetic finishes, without the need to change inks or media. A gloss finish gives visual impact to applications such as banners and posters, while a matte appearance is particularly appealing for high quality indoor applications viewed in artificial light, such as wall coverings or premium instore Point-Of-Sale (POS) materials. Océ FLXfinish technology also enables printing on porous media, such as uncoated papers, wallpaper as well as soft signage materials such as textiles and silicon-edged graphics, by enabling each ink droplet to be ‘fixed’ immediately on jetting, preventing absorption by the substrate. The Colorado Series features exact positioning, enabling near perfect registration for double-sided printing and ‘inside out’ printing of media with the printable surface facing in, further boosting productivity and versatility. Fueling new opportunities Canon’s theme for PackPrint 2019 is “FUEL EMOTION WITH PRINT” - based on the SPEED campaign built around the book from documentary photographer Horst A. Friedrichs which features images of British subcultures from the last two decades. This book was digitally printed on an Océ ProStream 1000 continuous feed inkjet press and Océ VarioPrint i-series high speed inkjet sheetfed press. From applications such as direct mail, to purchase-boosting POS, through to interior décor which enhances the customer’s brand experience, ‘Speed’ demonstrates print’s key role in a multi-channel brand campaign and how emotion can be fueled with print. Canon has exhibited a number of large format rigid print applications such as promotional and decorative signage, wood, photo and fine art prints printed on the Océ Arizona 1300 series, true flatbed UV LED printer. In addition, live roll-to-roll Océ Colorado series applications such as SAV, wall covering, vehicle graphics, floor graphics and POS displays will be demonstrated at the stand.
