New Canon ML-105 EF Multi-Purpose Camera

New Canon ML-105 EF Multi-Purpose Camera
Built small and tough, Canon’s new ML-105 EF captures in the dark

London, United Kingdom, 04 November 2020 – Canon Europe today announces the ML-105 EF, a powerful, multi-purpose camera capable of capturing 2.07 megapixel resolution footage in the dark. Building on the success of the Emmy award-winning ME20F-SH, Canon’s new ML-105 EF achieves equivalent low-light performance in a smaller and lighter body, making it an ideal surveillance camera. The discreet camera body is fortified with a robust build that is shock, dust and water resistant, and can withstand extreme climates. Designed to seamlessly fit into existing systems, the ML-105 EF - one of four model variants - employs an SDI terminal and leverages Canon’s EF Mount, giving system integrators a greater choice of lenses to meet their needs.

Low-light performance
With a maximum ISO of 4 million, the ML-105 EF delivers amazing low-light sensitivity to capture subjects illuminated with less than 0.0005 lux. The 2.07 MP Full Frame 35mm CMOS sensor creates sharp images, with low noise, even in extreme darkness. This feature makes the ML-105 EF ideal for capturing clear images, even at night, such as when shooting wildlife documentaries or mission critical surveillance.

Small, yet robust, the ML-105 EF camera weighs just 800 grams with dimensions of approximately 76 x 76 x 112mm – making it a streamlined, portable solution which can also be comfortably mounted onto a drone or vehicle, giving more dynamic and flexible options for shooting. Its compact form is 50 per cent smaller and 30 per cent lighter than the highly regarded ME20F-SH. With a water and dust resistant design, this pocketable camera can comfortably move between arid deserts and rain-soaked landscapes, all while withstanding extreme temperatures as low as -20˚c to over 50˚c. This camera has the added benefit of vibration and shock proofing. Likewise, for instances when it’s essential to quickly pack up the camera and pull out cables, the ML-105 EF uses a durable ODU terminal.

The EF Mount allows the ML-105 EF to seamlessly fit into a standard workflow and gives users the choice of a full line-up of lenses to meet their needs. Particularly beneficial for capturing distant subjects, this compact camera supports Canon’s EF super telephoto lenses for a solution that can capture subjects hundreds of metres away in low-light. With versatility in mind, the ML-105 EF is compatible with a range of third-party filters including an IR cut filter, Band Pass filter, IR Pass filter and ND filter to achieve the same high image quality in every scenario. This model employs an SDI port - the most commonly used video output interface – to effortlessly integrate with existing infrastructure.

Bolstering the range
Alongside the ML-105 EF, three other lightweight cameras will join Canon’s range of multi-purpose cameras; the ML-100 EF, ML-100 M58 and ML-105 M58. For enhanced portability, all models adopt a new, more compact footprint than the award-winning ME20F-SH. The ML-100 EF and ML-100 M58 models leverage the all-in-one CoaXPress cable and support the Canon EF Mount and General M58 Mount respectively. The ML-105 M58 features SDI connectivity, whilst also employing the General M58 Mount.

New Canon RF Lenses And PIXMA PRO-200 Printer

Canon Adds Two RF Lenses And PIXMA PRO Printer Ideal For The Enthusiast Photographer
Canon Adds Two RF Lenses And PIXMA PRO Printer Ideal For The Enthusiast Photographer

MELVILLE, NY, November 3, 2020 – Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is excited to introduce the compact and lightweight RF70-200mm F4 L IS USM and the RF50mm F1.8 STM, two completely re-designed RF mount lenses with bloodlines to immensely popular EF models that feature new lens formulas and enhanced elements. Canon is also introducing the PIXMA PRO-200 printer, which is ideal for photography students and graphic designers.

“As Canon began to further build out the company’s RF lens portfolio, the goal in mind was to create advanced lenses, for a variety of experience levels, that also featured a sense of familiarity for longtime Canon users,” said Tatsuro “Tony” Kano, executive vice president and general manager of Canon U.S.A.’s Imaging Technologies & Communications Group. “Canon prides itself on being able to uniquely offer both input and output solutions to our customers. We are equally excited to see the images captured with the new lenses, and the prints that are to be created with the new PIXMA PRO-200 printer.”

Canon RF70-200mm F4 L IS USM Lens
The Canon RF70-200mm F4 L IS USM lens is ideal for photography enthusiasts ranging from advanced amateur to professional skill levels. The compact and lightweight nature of the lens makes it Canon’s shortest and lightest 70-200mm F4 zoom lens to date. This RF lens is approximately 32 percent shorter and 11 percent lighter than its EF counterpart with a large portion of the lens element arrangement closer to the camera body. This arrangement is designed to provide photographers with a more balanced feel and experience even at the zoom range’s telephoto end. Additionally, the shorter and lighter design allows the lens to more easily be stowed away in a camera bag when not in use.

The RF70-200mm F4 L IS USM features two independent Nano USM motors, providing an even greater level of high-speed autofocus for still image shooting as well as quiet and smooth autofocus for video shooting. The lens also incorporates a floating focus control that drives the two lens groups individually while using the two aforementioned Nano USM motors. The floating focus lens element shortens the focusing distance and helps reduce breathing, providing users with fast, consistent and reliable performance.

Additional Features of The Canon RF70-200mm F4 L IS USM Lens Include:
  • 16 lens elements in 11 groups, including four UD lenses, that help to reduce chromatic aberration
  • Optical Image Stabilizer with up to 5 Stops[i] of Shake Correction
  • Up to 7.5 stops[ii] of Shake Correction with coordinated control of Optical Image Stabilizer and In-Body Image Stabilizer
  • Three stabilizer modes
  • Customizable control ring that allows photographers to adjust exposure compensation, shutter speed, aperture, or ISO
  • 12-pin communication system
  • L-Series dust and weather-resistant build with a fluorine coating
  • Minimum focusing distance of 1.97 feet and a maximum magnification of 0.28x
  • Air Sphere Coating (ASC) that helps minimize lens flare and ghosting

Canon RF50mm F1.8 STM Lens
Creatives love using a 50mm lens because that focal length is similar to the natural viewpoint of the human field of vision. This perspective allows for the lens to be used in a wide variety of shooting situations, including portraits, landscapes and food photography. What’s more, Canon 50mm f/1.8 lenses have long been a popular tool for both photographers and creators due to their budget-friendly price point, extremely compact and lightweight form factor, and versatility.

The tradition continues with the RF50mm F1.8 STM that, in many ways, is improved over its EF counterpart. The first visually noticeable improvement is the customizable control ring that has become synonymous with RF lenses. The control ring allows photographers to adjust exposure compensation, shutter speed, aperture, or ISO and with a flip of the side switch can adjust focus. The inclusion of a PMo aspherical lens helps to reduce chromatic aberration and provides high-image quality even at the periphery of the image. Additionally, the combination of the lens shape and Super Spectra Coating (SSC) helps to minimize ghosting and flaring.

Additional Features of The Canon RF50mm F1.8 STM Lens Include:
  • Six lens elements in five groups
  • 12-pin communication system
  • Minimum focusing distance of 0.98ft and a maximum magnification of 0.25x
  • Up to 7 Stops[iii] of Shake Correction with EOS R Series cameras with In-Body Image Stabilizer

Canon PIXMA PRO-200 Printer
Continuing a long history of high-quality input to output digital imaging equipment, the PIXMA PRO-200 printer is 15% smaller than its predecessor, the PIXMA PRO-100. With the ability to print up to 13 inches x 19 inches and featuring improved ChromaLife 100+ dye-based ink, the latest PRO printer helps to create prints that are more representative of the original digital file. A helpful tool of the trade for photographers who print work for themselves and graphic artists or photography students working on their portfolios from their homes, the PIXMA PRO-200 printer also features:
  • A new 3-inch LCD screen to help users set up the printer, connect to WiFi, monitor ink and paper levels for an improved user experience
  • New Skew Correction feature, which automatically corrects shifts the paper may encounter during printing
  • Professional print and layout software, which can work as a stand-alone program, or integrated into Adobe® Lightroom® or Photoshop® as a plugin to work within a photographer’s workflow, to help take the guesswork out of making great prints
  • Vast media support to print on a variety of surfaces such as Canon Photo Paper Pro Luster and Premium Fine Art Rough, as well as the ability to print longer panoramic images in comparison to previous models

Pricing and Availability
The Canon RF70-200mm F4 L IS USM, and RF50mm F1.8 STM lenses are scheduled to be available in early and mid-December 2020 for a suggested retail price of $1,599.00 and $199.99, respectively*.

The Canon PIXMA PRO-200 printer is scheduled to be available later in November 2020 for a suggested retail price of $599.99*.

Canon's iNSPiC REC wins Bronze Award at DFA Design

Canon's iNSPiC REC wins Bronze Award at DFA Design for Asia Awards 2020
Canon's iNSPiC REC wins Bronze Award at DFA Design for Asia Awards 2020

TOKYO, November 2, 2020—Canon Inc. announced today that the company's iNSPiC REC was recognized for design excellence by the Hong Kong Design Centre, winning the Bronze Award at the DFA Design for Asia Awards 2020.

The Bronze Award-winning iNSPiC REC camera features a palm-sized compact and lightweight body with a carabineer clip design that delivers superb portability, waterproofing and shockproofing. From outdoor to everyday use, the iNSPiC REC is a light and easy-to-carry concept camera that's ideal for a wide range of scenarios.

The iNSPiC REC's carabineer design allows users to easily clip it on to and remove it from clothing, accessories and other items. Thanks to its key-holder style form, users can easily carry it around and easily point and shoot whenever the mood strikes. The camera realizes a lightweight, compact and portable size, weighing approximately 90 g and measuring approximately 110.5 mm (W) x 45.2 mm (H) x 18.5 mm (D).

The camera is waterproof1 to depths of 2 meters for up to 30 minutes, dustproof (IP68) and shockproof up to 2 meters, making it easy to use and well-suited for the outdoors, sports, oceans and use by kids.

With modern digital photography, it has become commonplace for users to have the ability to see their photos immediately after capturing them. However, the iNSPiC REC opts to forego a display so that users can enjoy viewing their photos at a later time instead. By connecting the camera and a smartphone via the dedicated app2, users' smartphones can view and save captured photos, and even be used for live viewing while shooting.

Canon has participated in the DFA Design for Asia Awards since 2013, having thus far won awards for such products as its Cinema EOS System professional cinematography equipment, video camcorders, cameras and interchangeable lenses. Encouraged by this latest industry recognition, Canon will continue striving to create products that combine the highest levels of performance and design excellence.
