Canon celebrates 3rd anniversary of UN Sustainability Development Goals

Canon celebrates 3rd anniversary of the United Nation’s Sustainability Development Goals

On the 25th September 2018 Canon Europe will celebrate the anniversary of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals along with thousands of individuals, organisations, and institutions across the globe.

Participants of Canon’s Young People Programme in South Africa and Poland.
In 2015 world leaders adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which aim to serve as a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. 

Canon Europe is marking the third anniversary of those SDGs by celebrating Global Day to #Act4SDGs on the 25th September with a special event in Nigeria in collaboration with Slum Art, a charity organisation with a mission to mentor and build creative talents in young people from Lagos. During the event, and over a course of two weeks, photography training will be given to participants aged between 15-19 from three neighbourhoods in Lagos with the aim to give these young individuals the skills to be able to talk about the SDGs that are most important to them and the solutions they want to see through the art of visual storytelling.

The event forms part of Canon’s Young People Programme and will be hosted by fully certified trainers from Canon’s Miraisha programme.

“The Young People Programme is good example of how Canon Europe is seeking to make meaningful social investments across the EMEA region, demonstrating our commitment to our corporate philosophy of Kyosei: living and working together for the common good,” says Stuart Poore, EMEA Director of Sustainability and Government Affairs, Canon Europe.

Now in its fourth year, Canon’s Young People Programme seeks to contribute towards the achievement of the SDGs by giving young people a voice through harnessing the power of positive visual storytelling to drive change. The programme uses the SDGs as a framework to give young people the opportunity to talk about the global issues that affect their futures and by providing the right tools and coaching, it aims to bring participants’ stories to life. Canon Europe has been delivering visual storytelling workshops for young people to date in 23 countries across Europe and has run events reaching more than 3,000 students.

“If we want to make the SDGs happen, we need everyone to take action. Through our work with Canon Europe we are giving young people an opportunity to get involved in the issues they care about, to tell their own stories of SDG Action and share them with the world, and to join the global movement making the SDGs happen.” said Marina Ponti, Head of the Global Campaign Center, UN SDG Action Campaign.

Key programmes throughout EMEA for Canon’s 2018 Young People Programme so far include;
2018 Young People Programme launch at the UN Global Festival of Action – Participants in Canon’s YPP and Photojournalist and Canon ambassador Ulla Lohmann, appeared on UN Web TV to share plans for the year ahead
  • Belgium – In partnership with the charity Plan Belgium, this year’s YPP event in Belgium encouraged conversations around Gender Equality by challenging girls to illustrate where in their home city makes them feel unsafe. Young people were then invited to express their views as a result of the work at a youth forum at Belgium Parliament.
  • European Development Days – Canon showcased how it is utilising the power of imagery to support livelihoods, give young people a visual voice on implementing the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and drive gender equality at this year’s European Development Days
  • Germany – Images from Germany’s YPP were this year displayed at the annual German Federal Chancellory – or “Bundeskanzleramt” – event in Berlin as part of the UN SDG Action Campaign, during which photographs taken by YPP students from Cologne and Krefeld were displayed alongside information on the German national Sustainability Strategy.
  • The exhibition was also displayed at Berlin Central Station during IFA from 1st to 11th September and will be shown from 23rd to 29th September at Cologne Central Station during photokina.
  • Iraq – School girls from Iraq participated in a unique YPP which saw Canon partner with The International Committee of the Red Cross to tell the story of when they and their families were forced to flee war. Their photography was exhibited at one of the world’s leading photojournalism festivals, Visa pour l’Image in September.
  • Italy – This year’s initiative took place at the Istituto Superiore Francesco Morano in Caivano, where participants attended 12 workshops with Canon Ambassador Antonio Gibotta, to learn the fundamentals of photography.
  • Poland – The "To MY create the World" project, ran as three multimedia workshops for primary and middle school students in Katowice, Opole, and Warsaw. The project aimed to work with young creative observers of this world, to people who want to build a sense of responsibility for this world, to the courageous, who want to show their point of view and inspire others to act through the image.
  • Slovenia – Canon hosted its YPP in partnership with the Youth Health and Summer Resort of Red Cross Debeli Rtic, a health centre for children, youth, families and seniors, for 36 children from underprivileged backgrounds who took part in workshops which taught the power of photography and how it can be used to stories to align with the SDGs
  • South Africa – The “Wild Shots Outreach” programme, as part of Canon’s YPP in South Africa, takes place near the Kruger National Park, and is helping to educate underprivileged children in the art of wildlife photography and its impact on conservation (SDG 15 – Life on Land). During this year’s programme, students were taught photography in a series of practical workshops before going on a game drive to put what they had learned into practice.
  • Spain - Canon’s YPP in Spain included a two-week workshop for 30 students at La Nave (Villaverde), in Madrid in collaboration with Teach For All. Participants learnt from Canon Ambassador Jaime de Diego and others prestigious Spanish photographers like Marc Albiac (winner of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year at the age of 15) and Ofelia de Pablo and Javier Zurita (photojournalists whose stories have been featured in the world´s foremost print and visual media including The Guardian UK or The New York Times).
  • UK – This Summer Canon UK hosted another successful year of its Creative Media Camp in partnership with the Ideas Foundation. The five-day event for students aged 13-18 took place at the University of the Arts London and saw 23 students work together in five teams to harness the power of positive visual storytelling to drive change for the SDGs.

Visual storytelling in collaboration with Canon Europe and Red Cross

School girls in Ramadi, Iraq, affected by war explore visual storytelling in collaboration with Canon Europe and the International Committee of the Red Cross

Geneva/Ramadi (ICRC/Canon) - The photos: A rusted-out car in rubble. A collapsed bridge. Tattered Iraqi flags. A portrait of a younger sister, a tight smile on her lips.

The photographers: School girls aged 12-18 in the Iraqi city of Ramadi who have seen a portion of their childhood turned upside down when they and their families were forced to flee war.

The sponsors: The International Committee of the Red Cross and Canon, who partnered to create a unique photography workshop to build tighter relationships with communities affected by conflict and violence.

The five-day workshop at Al-Rajaa School, which was severely damaged during fighting in the country, was the first attempt between the ICRC and Canon to use photography as a means to better understand teenagers’ experiences during and after the destruction of Ramadi.

Creative outlets – photography included – are powerful tools to equip young people to drive change and overcome trauma.

“I like photography because it reflects the point of view of other people. When I see a photo, I can sense others’ perspective on things, and discover a side of their personality that I didn’t know.” said 17-year-old Shifaa Adballah Ahmed, one of the participants in the workshop.

The images taken by the schoolgirls will be shown from 3rd September at Visa pour l’Image, one of the world’s leading photojournalism festivals, as part of Canon’s line-up of events for the festival and its commitment to championing the role photography plays in telling the stories that need to be told. The imagery will also be shared on ICRC’s and Canon’s social media channels.

The ICRC-Canon collaboration is built on Canon’s Young People Programme, which seeks to contribute towards the achievement of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) by giving young people a voice and empowering them to drive change through visual storytelling. The ICRC used its unique access in conflict-affected countries, enabling Canon to give the schoolgirls an opportunity to talk about the issues that affect their futures; providing them with the tools and coaching to do this. The project focused on SDG 4 -- quality education -- and SDG 5 – gender equality – but also on highlighting the ways girls’ education has a positive impact on a community.

“Conflict has devastating impacts on communities and especially on children. This photography project gave these girls an opportunity to view and share their daily life through a creative lens, opening a channel of hope and creativity while moving away from violence and displacement,” said the ICRC’s head of delegation in Iraq, Katharina Ritz. “The girls’ excitement for this project was a vivid symbol of how urban warfare can damage school buildings but can’t extinguish the desire for education and a better future.”

“I feel it’s important to inspire younger generations with the power of photography and show how it can be used as an outlet to daily life,” said Mashid Mohadjerin, the Canon Ambassador who held the workshop.” These girls have been through a lot in their lives and I feel privileged to have given them an opportunity to express themselves in a way they’ve never been able to before. It’s also very important to gain new perspectives on stories in these regions and there is something unique that a younger person can bring to the conversation”

“Giving young people an outlet to share their views and stories is really important to us and we believe imaging is a powerful tool to grow awareness of the issues being faced,” said Stuart Poore, EMEA Director of Sustainability and Government Affairs at Canon Europe. “Everyone at Canon has been moved by the images taken by the schoolgirls in Iraq and the topics they address. We look forward to working closely with the ICRC to see how we can take this project further in the coming year.”

New Canon RF Mount Lenses For EOS R Full Frame Mirrorless Camera

Canon RF 28-70mm F2 L USM Lens
Canon RF 28-70mm F2 L USM Lens
Beyond The Realm of Traditional Possibilities: Canon Introduces Four RF Mount Lenses

Canon Also Introduces Three RF Mount Adapters, Providing EF & EF-S Lenses with Full Compatibility and Enhanced Functionality with the New EOS R Camera

New Canon EOS R Mirrorless System Launched View

MELVILLE, N.Y., September 5, 2018 – Helping to rewrite the rules of visual expression, Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today introduced a variety of new RF lenses and accessories to accompany the newly announced EOS R Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera System.

The four new RF lenses are built around Canon’s new RF mount, which features a large 54mm diameter and shorter back focus distance than on current EOS DSLR cameras.
The new RF mount enables new possibilities in optical design and lens formulation,
allowing for faster and lighter lenses with higher performing optics.

Canon  RF 50mm F1.2 L USM Lens
Canon  RF 50mm F1.2 L USM Lens
The four new lenses, the Canon RF 28-70mm F2 L USM, RF 50mm F1.2 L USM, RF 24-105mm F4 L IS USM and RF 35mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM capitalize on the robust optic foundation of Canon’s new EOS R system. The design behind Canon’s new EOS R camera and RF lens system started with the concept of the optimal rear lens element diameter and shorter distance (back focus) for a Full-Frame image sensor.

With over 130 million EF lenses in circulation since Canon launched the mount in 1987*, the Company is enhancing the possibilities for its loyal customers who own and love their EF glass. Canon is introducing three RF Lens Mount Adapters that expand the capabilities of existing EF lenses when paired with the EOS R camera. The Canon Mount Adapter EF-EOS R allows photographers to utilize the full breadth of Canon’s EF, EF-S, TS-E, and MP-E lenses on the newly introduced EOS R camera system. The Control Ring Mount Adapter adds a customizable control ring via the adapter that provides photographers with added functionality to their fingertips. 

The Drop-in Filter Mount Adapter now easily places circular polarizing or variable neutral
density filters behind the lens, opening up new options for lenses such as the EF 11-24mm
where using  optical filters were previously not an option.

“Knowing exceptional optics are a vital tool in shaping the image a photographer captures, Canon designed the EOS R camera system from the ground up with optics as the starting point,” said Kazuto Ogawa, president and chief operating officer, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “Canon is very excited about the world-class optics we have developed to marry with the new RF mount. With our rich history and more than 130 million EF lenses being used across the globe, Canon optics will continue to be at the forefront of our digital imaging development now and into the future.”

New Canon RF Series Lenses
Three of the newly announced Canon RF lenses are counted among Canon’s top-of-the-line L-series optics; incorporating rugged, dust and water-resistant construction. All four new RF lenses feature a customizable control ring that allows photographers to adjust exposure compensation, shutter speed, aperture or ISO.

The Canon RF 28—70mm F2 L USM lens, the world’s first standard zoom lens with an f/2 aperturei is excellent for capturing landscapes, weddings and portraits with its large aperture for stunning bokeh. Initial testing within Canon has shown this new lens to produce better optical image quality and sharpness over similar focal length EF-series lenses, including the extremely popular and highly regarded EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM.

A portrait photographer’s must-have, the Canon RF 50mm F1.2 L USM lens sports an ultra
large-diameter f/1.2 aperture and Canon’s Air Sphere Coating (ASC) technology to dramatically
reduce flares and ghosting. This amazing new lens is capable of rendering subjects life-size on
the full-frame sensor with its minimum focusing distance of only 0.59 inches.

Canon RF 24-105mm F4 L IS USM Lwns
Canon RF 24-105mm F4 L IS USM Lwns
Photographers seeking an all-around utility lens for the new EOS R camera system need to look no further than the Canon RF 24-105mm F4 L IS USM lens. Coming in nine percent shorter in length than the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM, this compact lens employs a CIPA standard of 5 stops of IS and is equipped with NANO USM technology, the first L-series lens with the technology. This small chip-shaped ultrasonic motor is engineered to help deliver high-speed, smooth, precise and near-silent operation, plus full-time manual focus (when using one-shot AF).

A fast, wide-angle single focus lens, the Canon RF 35mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM lens is an excellent option for photographers looking for an affordable compact lens. Featuring a maximum shooting magnification of 0.5x, the lens can easily shoot macro photography of subjects such as flowers, food and even insects. The lens also utilizes a CIPA standard of 5 stops of IS and is compatible with Hybrid IS, compensating for both angular and shift camera shake.

Enhanced Capabilities for Canon EF Lenses
Thanks to its large lens mount design, Canon’s new EOS R series camera system delivers new capabilities in both design and function, but for existing Canon lens owners it does something incredible. It enhances the capabilities of existing EF and EF-S lenses with full compatibility and in some cases, enhanced functionality when paired with one of three RF mount adapters.

Canon lenses are historically top-rated, and the Company is looking to help customers gain even more value in their investment with three new RF mount adapters.
  • The Canon Mount Adapter EF-EOS R is a standard adapter that provides full compatibility with EF lenses. Autofocus, metadata, and Optical Image Stabilization on EF lenses all continue to work seamlessly with the new EOS R camera through this adapter.
  • The Control Ring Mount Adapter EF-EOS R continues full EF lens compatibility with the addition of a customizable control ring. Functions that can be assigned and adjusted by the control ring include aperture, shutter speed, ISO speed and exposure compensation.
  • In addition to full EF lens compatibility, the Drop-In Filter Mount Adapter EF-EOS R allows for lens filters to be used behind any EF lens and help photographers conveniently utilize variable ND and circular polarizing filters with any EF lens. 

New Speedlite Series
Canon is also introducing a new compact and lightweight Speedlite, the EL-100. Designed for photographers who are just beginning to use an external flash or are in need of a secondary unit, the new Speedlite delivers both soft and natural lighting reproduction. In addition, the EL-100 can rotate upwards and to the left and right enabling photographers to bounce the flash off of nearby ceilings, walls or surfaces.

Additional Features of the Canon Speedlite EL-100 include:
  • Maximum Guide Number of Approx. 85 ft./26m at ISO 100
  • 24mm Wide-angle Coverage
  • Optical Wireless Flash Function (Sender and Receiver)
  • Flash Exposure Control Including Support for Stroboscopic Flash and Continuous Shooting Camera-linked Functions Including Interlocked External Flash Power On/Off
  • Mode Dial with AUTO Position
