Canon Photo Service Center : Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020

TOKYO, July 19, 2021—Canon Inc. and Canon Marketing Japan Inc. announced today that the company will establish a photo service center for professional photographers in the Main Press Center (MPC), where members of the international press gather, during the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020 (henceforth, Tokyo 2020 Games) with the purpose of ensuring photographers are as best-equipped as possible to capture exciting and definitive moments of top-class athletes.

Professional photographers around the world require camera manufacturers to develop state-of-the-art technologies and top-class-performance equipment, as well as provide a comprehensive network of meticulous service and support.

Thus far, Canon has provided on-site support for press photographers, including camera and lens maintenance and technological support, behind the scenes at major sporting events around the world. The Tokyo 2020 Games are no exception—there too, Canon will apply its professional support know-how acquired over its long history in order to provide flexible and appropriate support for photographers and the various requests and equipment troubles they may have.

The Tokyo 2020 Games Main Press Center, located in the West Hall of the Tokyo Big Sight convention center, is expected to receive many members of the international press. As a Gold Partner of the Tokyo 2020 Games (still cameras and desktop printers), Canon aims to contribute to the successful operation of the event. With this goal in mind, the company will establish the largest camera photo service center of this event within the MPC.

At the photo service center, which will operate under the motto of "Zero Downtime" to ensure that photographers don't miss their chance at capturing decisive moments of this intense competition due to equipment trouble or other such problems, Canon will provide speedy maintenance service, equipment repairs and loaning of replacement equipment so that photographers can always be ready and in the best possible condition.

The Canon photo service center will provide such equipment as the company's professional flagship camera, the EOS-1D X Mark III, as well as the EOS R5 and EOS R6 mirrorless cameras and super-telephoto lenses. In addition, elite and highly trained staff will be working on-site to support photographers until the end of the closing ceremonies of the Tokyo 2020 Games.

In addition, Canon's remote camera system will be used at the event venues. The Robotic Camera System CR-S700R enables digital interchangeable-lens cameras (DILC) to be operated remotely, including the ability to adjust shooting angles, and can be installed and used in locations at the event areas where human photographers cannot access, such as from ceilings.

Canon strives to support photographers aiming to capture historic and powerful moments of top-class athletes engaged in fierce competition and contribute to the promotion and development of photographic culture. In addition, the company will support the efforts of the media to deliver to people around the world moments of passion and excitement during the sporting world's premiere event, thus contributing to the promotion of the Olympic and Paralympic movement.

*The Canon photographer service center will take thorough precautions against the spread of COVID-19 infections in order to ensure that photographers and staff may use and operate the booth safely and with peace of mind.

The FD 800mm f/5.6 S.S.C. (released in June 1976) - Canon's first interchangeable lens to adopt the white coating

Canon adopts a white paint coating for its L-series telephoto and super-telephoto lenses.

Canon developed the signature white of its lens barrels as a tool for photographers at international sporting events. The first such lenses* produced by the company, the FD600mm f/4.5 S.S.C. and FD800mm f/5.6 S.S.C. large-diameter super-telephoto lenses, were released in June 1976.

Compared with standard lenses, super-telephoto lenses are much larger, and therefore more prone to the effects of sunlight and are frequently used under the intense heat of the summer sun.

In order to reduce the adverse effects that heat has on the lens' optical performance, Canon adopted its signature white coating for its lens barrels, which reflects heat more effectively than black. Canon continues to improve this technology through such improvements as a proprietary heat shield lens barrel coating used by the EF400mm f/2.8L IS III USM and EF600mm f/4L IS III USM lenses (released in 2018).

At various sporting events held worldwide, there is often a "sea of white" in the photographers' section—rows upon rows of professionals using Canon lenses. Among photographers, these lenses gained the nickname "white lenses," and the color white came to be known as a marker of a high-performance professional lens.

*Among lenses for interchangeable-lens cameras. The lenses were used with the TV2000mm f/11 super-telephoto lens (released in September 1960) for broadcast cameras for broadcasting baseball matches.

Robotic Camera System CR-S700R

For on-location press at sports matches and other events, remote camera technology enables still photography from perspectives and angles that would not be possible through conventional means. Allowing photographers to operate their cameras from a distance, this technology is becoming increasingly widespread.

In February 2020, Canon released the Robotic Camera System CR-S700R solution for capturing still photos using interchangeable-lens cameras* via remote operation.

The Robotic Camera System CR-S700R, developed in response to and in order to meet the needs of users worldwide, supports the still image capture for press photographers.

*Compatible with the following camera and lens models:
EOS-1D X Mark III (released in February 2020), EOS-1D X Mark II (released in February 2016), EF11-24mm f/4L USM (released in February 2015), EF16-35mm f/2.8L III USM (releases in October 2016), EF24-70mm f/2.8L II USM (released in September 2012), EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS III USM (released in September 2018), EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM (released in March 2010), EF24-105mm f/4L IS II USM (released in October 2016), EF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM (released in December 2014). As of July 19, 2021.

New Canon EOS Firmware: EOS R5, EOS R6 and EOS-1D X Mark III

New Canon EOS Firmware: EOS R5, EOS R6 and EOS-1D X Mark III

Canon supports filmmakers with the release of new firmware for its professional cameras

London, United Kingdom, 8ᵗʰ July 2021 – Canon Europe today announces firmware updates for the EOS R5¹, EOS R6 (firmware v1.4) and EOS-1D X Mark III (firmware v1.5). In response to feedback from users, these firmware updates make each camera a powerhouse for professional video capture.

Building on user feedback, Canon’s latest firmware update unlocks professional video capabilities for the EOS R5, EOS R6 and EOS-1D X Mark III

Cinema quality video content

Already available in the EOS R5, the new firmware update brings the highly requested Canon Log 3 (C-Log 3) to the EOS R6 and EOS-1D X Mark III. Canon’s renowned Log 3 expands the dynamic range and offers more colour space options to achieve rich, high-quality video that mirrors that of Hollywood standard cinema cameras. This logarithmic gamma curve also increases the compatibility of these models with cinema production workflows, making it easier to colour match footage captured with Canon’s Cinema EOS Series cameras.

Simplified video workflows

Alongside the availability of C-Log 3, these firmware upgrades add dual card recording to all three cameras. Users can now record the same video file - resolution, fps and codec - to both memory cards, ensuring that if one card is corrupted there is still a back-up of their footage2. The firmware update for the EOS-1D X Mark III and EOS R5 also adds support for the new industry standard CFexpress VPG400 cards, which guarantees a minimum write speed of 400 MB per second for more reliable filming. This is essential when shooting in 8K or recording RAW footage.

Compatible with cinema products

The upcoming firmware update to the EOS R5 introduces compatibility to Canon’s CN-E18-80mm T4.4 L IS KAS S and CN-E70-200mm T4.4 L IS KAS S Cine servo zoom lenses, making it a versatile camera to help users take content to the next level. With the new firmware, EOS R5 operators can control exposure, focus and zoom from the body, as well as start recording using the record button on Canon Cine servo zoom lenses. This compatibility also extends to Canon’s EOS utility and Camera Connect software, so users can seamlessly integrate the EOS R5 into any workflow.

Canon’s new EOS R5 firmware makes external full frame 8K ProRes RAW and 5K cropped ProRes RAW recording possible when connected to the Atomos Ninja V+ recorder and 5K cropped ProRes RAW recording with the Atomos Ninja V recorders, offering unrivalled image quality from an affordable and compact camera system.

When combined with the EOS R5, the Atomos Ninja V+ is able to record 8K recording at 30 fps, unlocking new possibilities for filmmakers and videographers. These professional recording formats also allow the white balance and ISO to be seamlessly changed during processing.

These latest firmware updates unlock critical video capabilities to catapult content creators to new levels of production value.

The EOS R6 and EOS-1D X Mark III firmware update is now available to download from here:
