Six New Canon imageCLASS X Series Printers to Lineup

Six New Canon imageCLASS X Series Printers to Lineup

Canon U.S.A. Adds Six New Printer and Multifunction Models to the imageCLASS X Series

Expanded A4 product line helps bridge the document workflow divide between the corporate office and the home office


MELVILLE, NY, October 13, 2021 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is expanding its product offering by adding six new models to the imageCLASS X series of desktop printers and multifunction devices.1 With their small footprint, rich feature set, and tight integration with office solutions, these models are designed for users in a variety of work environments - the corporate office, the home office, or a combination of both.

With organizations shifting to a structure that support remote workers, these new models will help employees stay connected and maintain access to critical business information – regardless of location – while also implementing sophisticated security and control features.2

The similar user experience and ease of operation of the imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX multifunction printers in the office, and the desktop imageCLASS X models at home, help make for a smooth transition between the two work environments. Both imageCLASS X and imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX models also support the Canon PRINT Business app, allowing users to perform many functions from their compatible smartphone. Plus, with the optional uniFLOW Online output management solution, organizations can benefit from additional security features while having the ability to facilitate detailed reporting and comprehensive tracking.

The new imageCLASS X models are added to a strong lineup that earned Buyers Lab’s 2021 A4 Line of the Year Award. The exciting new additions include the imageCLASS X MF1643i/iF II black-and-white multifunction printers, offering print speeds up to 45 pages per minute (PPM) and the inclusion of a starter cartridge. These models, which replace the imageRUNNER 1643i/iF and imageCLASS MF543dw models, feature a five-inch color touch panel and offer the flexibility of desktop or floor-standing options.

The new imageCLASS X MF1238 II and the imageCLASS X LBP1238 II models are black-and-white multifunction and single-function printers, respectively, offering print speeds up to 40 PPM and a five-inch color touch panel display. These models replace the previous imageCLASS X MF 1238 and LBP 1238 models

The imageCLASS X 1643 II Series, the imageCLASS X MF1238 II, and the imageCLASS X LBP 1238 II support a new standard Cloud Apps feature, allowing users to scan to or print from popular compatible cloud storage services such as DropBox, Google Drive, or OneDrive. 3

The Color imageCLASS X MF1538C is an A4 color multifunction model with a print speed of up to 40 PPM – a new speed range for a Color imageCLASS X MFP. The new model features a seven-inch color touch panel, the first of its kind for the imageCLASS Series. In addition to being larger and easier to view, the new control panel leverages similar features to the user interface of the imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX models, such as flick and pinch capabilities, the timeline feature, and a similar home screen. This model also supports the remote operation feature, allowing users to replicate the user interface of the device through the Remote Operation Kit on a PC, or the Canon PRINT Business App on a compatible mobile device.

The Color imageCLASS X LBP1538C is a single-function printer that produces vibrant results with speeds of up to 40 ppm. This model replaces the Color imageCLASS LBP712Cdn and includes the additional capability of Wi-FiR connectivity. With its compact design, this new model provides the flexibility to work as either a desktop or floor-standing model.

“These exciting additions strengthen the Canon lineup with solutions designed to enhance the work environment for both in-office and home office locations,” said Shinichi Yoshida, executive vice president and general manager, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “By taking steps such as streamlining the Wi-Fi setup, facilitating cloud storage support and improving the user experience, Canon continues to support its customers with technology designed for the modern hybrid work environment.”

Availability:

The new imageCLASS X models are comprised of the Color imageCLASS X MF1538C (MSRP: $3,100), Color imageCLASS X LBP1538C (MSRP: $1,795), imageCLASS X MF1643i II ($1,430), imageCLASS X MF1643iF II (MSRP: $1,738), imageCLASS X MF 1238 II (MSRP: $1,195) and the imageCLASS X LBP1238 II (MSRP: $599).*

New Canon imageCLASS Laser Printers

New Canon imageCLASS Laser printers imageCLASS LBP236dw
New Canon Laser Printers Deliver Ease of Use, Cloud Connectivity and Enhanced Security Features for Hybrid Workplaces


MELVILLE, NY, October 8, 2021 – As working from home and hybrid work styles have become more common, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, announces three new imageCLASS black-and-white laser printers to help enhance productivity for small businesses and home office workers. These models include new features to help meet the latest market needs for ease of use, workflow efficiency, and security features.

The new imageCLASS MF455dw (up to 40-pages per minute black-and-white multifunction printer) and imageCLASS LBP237dw/LBP236dw (up to 40 PPM) black-and-white printers increase and strengthen Canon’s mid-range printer offerings. They will benefit home office workers by producing high-speed, quality prints with a user-friendly interface and Wi-Fi printing capabilities. The imageCLASS MF455dw and LBP237dw models utilize Canon’s Application Library device platform, which provides the ability for frequently used applications and convenient functions to be registered as quick buttons on the home screen.

The new models build upon the platform capabilities of their predecessors with new features such as:
  • Improved Wi-Fi Setup Process: Connecting to Wi-Fi can now be completed in far fewer steps.
  • Cloud Connect (Scan and Print)*: The MF455dw allows cloud-based printing and scanning directly from the printer’s 5-inch color touch screen. The LBP237dw allows users to print from the cloud. Users can print documents, or scan images and documents, directly from and to Dropbox, Google Drive, or OneDrive accounts.

Based on a recent study, the biggest security risk for home office workers is less secure home-based devices accessing company data. Enhanced security features with the three new imageCLASS printers now provide an added layer to help protect users from digital threats**. The new models support Transport Layer Security, a security feature that provides authentication and encryption, as well as detects alterations.

“As a company built on innovation, Canon is proud to deliver solutions designed to meet new customer needs through the continued expansion of the imageCLASS printer line,” says Shinichi Yoshida, executive vice president and general manager of Canon U.S.A., Inc. “These new models are designed to help improve productivity, efficiency, and security features for small businesses, in particular those with hybrid workplaces.”

The free Canon PRINT Business application for compatible mobile devices offers convenient and quick printing and scanning on the go for the MF455dw and LBP237dw/LBP236dw models. It takes only five seconds for the first page to print on all of these 3 new imageCLASS models, currently the fastest time among most competitors.

All three models are supported by Canon’s friendly and knowledgeable customer service team which provides expert assistance for every level of experience.***

The new imageCLASS MF455dw will be available for purchase in November. The LBP237dw/LBP236dw are available for purchase immediately through the Canon Online Store.

New Canon RF 5.2mm F2.8 L Dual Fisheye Lens

Canon RF 5.2mm F2.8 L Dual Fisheye lens
Virtual Reality Through a New Lens: Canon Introduces Their First Dual Fisheye Lens for Stereoscopic 3D 180° VR Capture in 8K

MELVILLE, NY, October 6, 2021 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, has introduced its first product designed to empower the next generation of immersive storytellers. The new RF5.2mm F2.8 L Dual Fisheye lens brings stereoscopic 3D virtual reality (VR) capture* to the Canon EOS R5 camera as part of the EOS VR System, which also includes a future firmware update for the EOS R5 camera to support use of this lens with new VR shooting specific functions, as well as new upcoming Canon EOS VR software solutions for conversion and processing. 

As the world’s first digital interchangeable dual fisheye lens capable of shooting stereoscopic 3D 180° VR imagery to a single image sensor** the complexities of virtual reality production and the ability to view the content in full capacity, are greatly streamlined for seasoned professionals and newcomers to the craft. In order to truly experience the captured content by this system in its truest form, a compatible VR headset is recommended for use such as the Oculus Quest 2, allowing the viewer to immerse themselves in the content — by simply moving their head to provide a vivid, incredibly wide view.

“At Canon, we innovate so creators can push artistic boundaries, and this commitment to innovation is what led us to introduce the new RF5.2mm F2.8 L Dual Fisheye lens. As Canon’s first entry into the world of virtual reality image capture, the EOS VR System represents an important milestone in our company’s rich history as a lens manufacturer and welcomes a bright future for VR content creation,” said Tatsuro “Tony” Kano, executive vice president and general manager of Canon U.S.A.’s Imaging Technologies & Communications Group. “This new RF lens produces a stunning 8K virtual reality image and sets itself apart through its simplified workflow. Our goal is to make immersive storytelling more accessible for all.”

Canon RF 5.2mm F2.8 L Dual Fisheye lens

The RF5.2mm F2.8 L Dual Fisheye features high-quality L-series optics engineered with an interpupillary distance of 60mm for delivery of 3D imagery in VR with natural parallax closely resembling human vision when viewed through a compatible headset. With a 190 degree field of view captured from two separate optical systems they deliver outstanding results for 180° VR viewing platforms. With subwavelength coating technology offering impressive flare control in backlit conditions, VR creators can have freedom to shoot regardless the time of day, or position of the sun. 

The dual fisheye design provides versatile exposure control with a maximum aperture of a bright f/2.8 to a deep depth of field of f/16 with electronically controlled apertures allowing the dual fisheye lens to operate just like other RF mount lenses. Between the dust and water-resistant sealing and fluorine coating of the lens and the robust build of the EOS R5 camera, this System delivers peace of mind even in challenging weather conditions. Canon’s free Camera Connect app and Canon's EOS Utility program both will be updated in the future to offer remote-control live view functionality for monitoring purposes while on-the-go.

The EOS VR System’s convenient workflow is a standout feature. Accomplished by recording left and right fisheye images to a single full-frame image sensor, this design helps to solve common VR challenges of stitching and synching, by outputting one single image file. Canon is currently developing two paid subscription-based software solutions as available options for completing the post-production process. Canon’s EOS VR Utility will offer the ability to convert clips from dual fisheye image to equirectangular and make quick edits, as well as select the resolution and file format before export. With the EOS VR Plug-In for Adobe® Premiere® Pro, creators will be able to automatically convert footage to equirectangular, and cut, color, and add new dimension to stories with Adobe Creative Cloud® apps, including Premiere Pro.

Compact, lightweight, and portable, the RF5.2mm F2.8 L Dual Fisheye is easily packed in a camera bag to help the creator tell unlimited virtual reality stories.

Additional features of Canon’s first interchangeable, stereoscopic 3D 180° VR 180 lens include:
  • Close-focusing distance of 7.87-inches/0.2m is possible - max magnification is 0.03x.
  • Aperture range of f/2.8 to f/16 with a 7-blade aperture and simultaneous electro-magnetic diaphragm for both left and right lenses.
  • Built-in Gelatin Filter Holder – allows ND gel filters to be used in bright environments if a bright aperture is desired.
  • Fluorine Coating on the front lens elements, with a dust and water resistant design.
  • Extremely compact size – allowing it to be used in different types of productions.

Pricing and Availability

The Canon RF5.2mm F2.8 L Dual Fisheye lens is scheduled to be available in late December 2021 for an estimated retail price of $1,999.00***. In addition to the lens, both of Canon's EOS VR Software solutions (EOS VR Utility and the EOS VR Plug-in for Adobe Premiere Pro) are currently scheduled to be available in late December 2021. Both software solutions will be available as a paid subscription based model, but will offer free trial periods (details to be disclosed at a later date) as well as the ability to process still images and certain clip lengths for free.

Canon RF 5.2mm F2.8L DUAL FISHEYE lens - Official Canon Video

The innovative Canon 3D VR System and the Canon RF 5.2mm F2.8L DUAL FISHEYE lens


Canon EOS VR System
The ground-breaking new EOS VR SYSTEM includes the new Canon RF 5.2mm F2.8L DUAL FISHEYE lens for digital interchangeable lens cameras, enabling 180° VR shooting with one camera to a single sensor.

Innovative lens design for simplified capture
The Canon RF 5.2mm F2.8L DUAL FISHEYE dual forward-facing fisheye lenses have an ultra-wide 190-degree field of view which form the basis of its stereoscopic VR capture capability. Canon’s advanced lens design then enables projection of two images onto the camera’s single sensor for perfect alignment and synchronisation straight out of the camera. By utilising the lens in this way, VR setup is simpler than a two-camera system.

Pushing optical boundaries
The stereoscopic Canon RF 5.2mm F2.8L DUAL FISHEYE lens features the infamous red ring, denoting it as a professional L-series lens that utilises two UD elements per lens, helping to produce sharp clear images, from edge-to-edge. The Canon RF 5.2mm F2.8L DUAL FISHEYE lens SWC coating is ideal for shooting with the sun in the frame, as it suppresses ghosting and flare of sunlight – a commonly encountered shooting condition in VR capture.

Streamlined 180° VR workflows
The brand-new EOS VR SYSTEM uses the Canon RF 5.2mm F2.8L DUAL FISHEYE lens on a single sensor camera where no lens alignment is required – meaning only one file is produced for both the left and right images which is already perfectly synchronised. This allows the Canon software or plug-in to accurately convert the captured dual circular fisheye format to a standard 180° VR format, ready for further editing in Adobe Premiere Pro or viewing on a VR headset.

New Canon imagePROGRAF GP Series Large Format Printers

New Canon imagePROGRAF GP Series Large Format Printers
Canon Launches World's First Large Format Printer with Aqueous Pigment Fluorescent Pink Ink for High Value Added Output and Graphics Applications

New imagePROGRAF GP Series has the largest Color Gamut in imagePROGRAF’s history

MELVILLE, NY, September 28, 2021 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, continues to bring new and exciting innovations to large-format printing. Newly launched is the imagePROGRAF GP Series, the world’s first* aqueous inkjet models to include Fluorescent Pink ink. Comprised of the 24-inch imagePROGRAF GP-2000, 44-inch imagePROGRAF GP-4000, 24-inch imagePROGRAF GP-200 and 36-inch imagePROGRAF GP-300, this series produces vivid neon colors for high value added output and graphics that will captivate consumer’s attention and may help to increase print business opportunities.

“Radiant Infusion”, a unique Canon technology, layers the Fluorescent Pink ink with other inks on the paper surface during printing, to create bright and soft color reproduction. This allows for the printing of high color graphics that support the expansion of a business’s printing capabilities. The Fluorescent Pink ink can also be used to print in specific areas such as text and objects to enable fluorescent color expression that makes those areas stand out. The user also has the option to print with or without the fluorescent ink completely. These GP Series inks can replicate the colors that represent one’s corporate brand that can be difficult to reproduce on a conventional inkjet printer. The Radiant Infusion technology is also integrated into PosterArtist Lite software to allow users to create high impact posters easily.

“We are proud to announce that the imagePROGRAF GP Series has obtained the world’s first “PANTONE Calibrated”1,2 license for the PANTONE PASTELS & NEONS GUIDE Coated3 containing the highly demanded fluorescent and pastel colors,” said Iain Pike, Director of Licensing and Business Development, Pantone/X-Rite. “Canon has also acquired PANTONE Calibrated licensing with two Pantone publications which expands the choice of color specification and helps ensure output results match the exact color viewed in the Solid Coated Guide by the designer.”

These devices allow the consumer to replicate high impact graphic posters, wall art and custom pop art that are ideal for the Millennial and Gen Z populations. These audiences, more than ever before, are purchasing items with vivid neon and fluorescent colors that can be seen on these personalized posters.

“We are proud to deliver on our commitment to develop pioneering solutions that answer the demands of the industry and therefore increase business potential for Canon customers,” said Shinichi Yoshida, executive vice president and general manager, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “Today Canon is excited to introduce the imagePROGRAF GP Series, the world’s first aqueous inkjet models to include a fluorescent color. This series was built with the widest color gamut of any imagePROGRAF in history to easily produce vibrant, eye catching output.”

The imagePROGRAF GP-2000/4000 models have a 10-Color pigment-based plus Fluorescent Pink ink set, which includes Green, Orange, Red, Violet, Matte Black, Black, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Gray colors. This ink combination helps expand the range of color reproduction to achieve the largest color gamut in the history of the imagePROGRAF line-up. The GP-2000/4000 models achieve 99% coverage*4 of “PANTONE FORMULA GUIDE Solid Coated” and 97% coverage of “PANTONE PASTELS & NEONS GUIDE coated3. The GP-2000/4000 come equipped with a built-in multi-sensor which helps enable easy and economical color calibration for consistent color reproduction from print to print, as well as from printer to printer. In addition, these models are equipped with Intelligent Media Handling, which allows the operator to place the roll in the machine and the printer will automatically load the paper and detect media length, width and type. An optional Multifunction Roll System is available for these devises, which also utilizes Canon's intelligent media handling. This is a versatile media handling solution system that enables either a second roll of media to be loaded in the printer, or the unit can be configured as a bi-directional media Take-up unit. Features such as these and the Radiant Infusion technology make these devices ideal for print-for-pay, design offices, proofing and signage markets.

The imagePROGRAF GP-200/300 printers have a 5-Color pigment based plus Fluorescent Pink ink set, which includes Matte Black, Black, Cyan, Magenta and Yellow colors. These printers support Radiant Infusion for in-house production of large format prints with increased appeal and visibility in various industries such as retail stores, restaurants, government offices, schools and general offices. The compact design of these printers allow them to easily fit in the small confinements of a classroom or company office without taking up too much valuable work space. For added convenience, all operator related tasks can be performed from the front of the printer allowing for the machine to be flush against the wall, ideal for locations with limited space.

Bundled with PosterArtist Lite, Canon’s poster creation software, users are able to create posters in 4 easy steps with included images and templates. The software includes new templates that allow you to create eye-popping, colorful images and posters in-house with ease. Adding even more value to this included software, Canon has partnered with photo stock companies (Pixabay, Unsplash, Pexels) to offer even more of an extensive array of images that can be easily incorporated into your custom poster design. This software has been updated to support Radiant Infusion technology; “Vivid mode” helps make the entire image vibrant as well as “Spot mode” that prints fluorescent ink in specific areas to make those areas stand out.

The new GP Series printers also have available as standard, a wide variety of creative and workflow software to help increase the productivity and efficiency of large-format printing environments. These software features include Direct Print Plus, Accounting Manager, Device Management Console and much more!

Leading RIP5 vendors in designing, proofing output, print services for large format printers, such as Caldera, CGS, EFI, Eisfeld, ONYX, Colorbyte and SAi are preparing RIPs that support the GP-4000/2000 models. Users can use software RIPs for any purpose without changing their familiar output workflow.

Canon U.S.A. Inc. Helps Empower Aspiring Photojournalists through its Support of the Eddie Adams Workshop


MELVILLE, NY, September 20, 2021 – Building on its commitment to foster young talent through the power of technology, Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced its participation as a lead supporter of the esteemed Eddie Adams Workshop. The workshop is an annual program that offers a unique learning environment for young photojournalists while honoring the legacy of photographer and photojournalist Eddie Adams. This collaboration further cements Canon’s support of photojournalists while enabling future generations of storytellers to continue to learn and grow through the power of photography.

Since its inception in 1988, the Eddie Adams Workshop has helped shape the future of photojournalism by investing in students based on their demonstrated skills. The workshop, which is also known as "Barnstorm" due to its location at a rustic upstate New York farm, continues to be the only tuition-free forum of its kind, inviting 100 students specially selected from around the world based on the quality of their craft. Many alumni of the program have been awarded the industry’s most prestigious accolades including Pulitzer Prizes, World Press Photo awards, ICP Infinity Awards and many more.

“It is a true honor to support such a prestigious program like the Eddie Adams Workshop that empowers such enormous talent in the photojournalism and photography space,” said Tatsuro “Tony” Kano, executive vice president and general manager of Canon U.S.A.’s Imaging Technologies & Communications Group. “Through the collaboration with Canon, the Eddie Adams Workshop gives budding photojournalists and photographers the opportunity to try a wide range of Canon professional cameras, lenses and accessories. This exposure to Canon’s superb digital imaging technology, along with the program’s unparalleled history of nurturing talent, exchanging ideas and building relationships, truly represents the embodiment of what our company stands for—an unwavering dedication to help people tap into their creativity to reach new heights of their potential.”

During the workshop, students are divided into teams and paired with a mentor photographer as well as an editor and researcher to offer assistance on their assignments. Each day consists of hands-on activities including shooting and editing content, combined with presentations led by renowned photographers, who discuss their personal experiences and careers.

In addition to supporting the Eddie Adams Workshop, Canon will provide a prize of top-of-the-line professional Canon equipment suited for today’s working photojournalist for a contest administered by the Eddie Adams Workshop.

The devotion of alumni is infinite with more than 40 former students returning to assist in the evolution of the Eddie Adams workshop in leadership, mentorship and speaker positions. They bring with them countless lessons learned in the field, sharing not only their photographs but also their process with students at the workshop. Industry changes are reflected in real time by innovators themselves.

The annual workshop honors and celebrates the legacy of Eddie Adams (June 12, 1933 – September 19, 2004), an accomplished photographer who spent years in the United States Marine Corps serving in the Korean War as a combat photographer. Throughout his noble career, he worked alongside military personnel to uncover and document important news stories from around the world. To acknowledge and honor young photographers in the same space, Adams designated one spot specifically for a military photographer during the second Eddie Adams Workshop in 1989. Furthermore, to help lead the annual workshop over the past 30 years, members of every branch of the U.S. military have attended or volunteered at the workshop.

“We are so excited to bring Canon on as a lead supporter of this workshop. We are honored to partner with such a dedicated leader in the digital imaging technology space and one that believes so strongly in empowering today’s storytellers,” said Mirjam Evers, Executive Director, Eddie Adams Workshop. “Canon brings a new energy and invaluable knowledge to our program and we are so excited for the collaborations that lie ahead.”

About Barnstorm: The Eddie Adams Workshop:

For more than 30 years, the purpose of the Eddie Adams Workshop is to create a forum where the exchange of ideas, techniques, and philosophies can be shared between both established members and newcomers of the profession of picture journalism. The workshop is a tuition-free, invitation-only event. Attendees are portfolio-selected by the Eddie Adams Workshop Board of Directors. For more information, please visit www.eddieadamsworkshop.org.

The New Professional Canon EOS R3 Announced

The EOS Revolution Continues: Canon Officially Announces the Company’s Most Technologically Advanced Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera, the Professional-Grade EOS R3

MELVILLE, NY, September 14, 2021 – Building on the success of the EOS R camera series, Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the next leap forward in full-frame mirrorless cameras - the professional-grade Canon EOS R3. The new camera leverages the advancements in technology that Canon has developed since the original EOS R launch in 2018 and bridges the gap between the immensely popular EOS R5 and the world-renowned Canon flagship EOS-1D X line. The EOS R3 is the first “3” series camera from Canon since the widely used EOS-3 film camera launched in 1998.

The EOS R3 camera’s features greatly emphasize superb AF performance and speed with fast-moving subjects. It was designed to meet the reliability and durability demands of professionals, even when working in some extremely challenging conditions.

“The launch of the EOS R3 sets a new benchmark for the Canon EOS R camera system. Canon listened carefully to the voices of professionals when developing a camera to meet their standards,” said Tatsuro “Tony” Kano, executive vice president and general manager of Canon U.S.A.’s Imaging Technologies & Communications Group. “The EOS R3 is a monumental evolution in digital imaging technology. I look forward to seeing the camera in action on the sidelines of sporting events and in the hands of nature and wildlife photographers across the globe.”

The core of the EOS R3 features a Canon designed and manufactured 24.1-megapixel back-illuminated stacked CMOS sensor. The sensor is the first of its kind from Canon, and when combined with the DIGIC X processor, delivers a high-speed readout allowing for continuous blackout-free shooting1 at up to 30 fps in electronic (silent) shutter mode and up to 12 fps in mechanical shutter, with minimum rolling electronic shutter distortion. The combination also increases the high sensitivity, light-capturing efficiency of a native ISO range of 100-102400, expandable up to 204,800 for still images. Like the EOS R5 and R6, the camera features the improved Dual Pixel CMOS AF II with 1,053 AF Points and evolved EOS iTR tracking down to EV -7.5 for subjects such as eye, face, head, animals2, and select cars and motorcycles. In addition, the camera features up to 8 stops3 of in-body image stabilized (IBIS) shake correction.

Leveraging technology and performance feedback from the popular EOS R5 and EOS R6 cameras, the EOS R3 uses Deep-Learning technology to further enhance eye and body detection for even better performance during portrait and action-type shooting. Featuring a new 5.76-million-dot and 120fps blackout-free1 Electronic Viewfinder, the EOS R3 camera will provide photographers with the ability to select the initial area for AF tracking by simply looking directly at the viewfinder location where they want to begin AF. With Eye input AF2 and Servo AF activated, the camera will focus on and track moving subjects at that location in the frame. When Face Detect + Tracking is active, the camera will continue to follow moving subjects around the entire active AF area.

The EOS R3 camera doesn’t just capture spectacular still images, it also packs impressive video specs as well. The camera is capable of shooting 6K 60p RAW and 4K 120p 10-bit uncropped video with Canon Log 3 support, in addition to the possibility for oversampled 4K and RAW movie internal recording. Canon Log 3, which is frequently used in cinema production, helps to reduce the possibility of highlight blowouts. What’s more, the features such as industry standard BT.709, BT.2020 color gamuts, and cinema gamut help to maintain color and tonal consistency. Coordinated 5-axis IBIS helps to correct operator motion or shaking providing dependent video capturing even when using a lens without built-in Optical IS.

Additional features of the EOS R3 Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera include:
  • Canon’s next-generation Multi-Function Shoe that is compatible with a variety of accessories including the Speedlite EL-1, and new accessories such as the ST-E10 Speedlite Transmitter, External Mic and Smartphone Link Adapter
  • One-piece magnesium alloy design, integrating the body with a vertical grip section
  • Weather and dust resistance equivalent to EOS-1D camera models.
  • Mobile File Transmitter application for iOS® and Android® devices allows photographers to transfer their images quickly and easily without the need for wired LAN equipment
  • Built-in Wired LAN, 5GHz Wi-Fi®, USB and Bluetooth® technology
  • Dual-card slots, supporting one CF express and one UHS-II SD

The Canon EOS R3 Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera is scheduled to be available in November 2021 for a suggested retail price of $5999.00*. For more information, please visit usa.canon.com.

  • Canon RF16mm F2.8 STM lens
  • Canon RF100–400mm F5.6–8 IS USM lens


MELVILLE, NY, September 14, 2021 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the RF16mm F2.8 STM and RF100–400mm F5.6–8 IS USM lenses. Both lenses invite current EOS R series users and those who are considering a move to Canon’s prominent mirrorless system, such as the EOS R or EOS RP, to expand their content creation abilities with the visual drama of an ultra-wide-angle lens and true telephoto-only zoom lens. As the “lens first” EOS R series continues to expand, these latest lenses open the door to a wide-range of imaging creators, encouraging them to test the powers and possibilities of their art.

Canon RF16mm F2.8 STM Lens

Ultra-Wide Perspectives

Whether you are excited to start exploring the creative world of ultra wide-angle photography or someone who is looking to add another lens to expand your imaging offerings, the Canon RF16mm F2.8 STM is compact, lightweight and affordable. Long gone are the days of optical corrections or sharpness challenges – the new ultra-wide, 16mm RF lens, for full-frame cameras, comes with a fast and bright f/2.8 maximum lens aperture, as well as smooth and brisk AF (autofocus). This lens is a strong addition to the landscape, architecture or travel photographer — but it also provides the vlogging creator and the EOS Webcam Utility software user the power to integrate environments into their imagery, with its super-wide coverage.

Additional features of Canon’s new ultra wide-angle prime lens with 16mm focal length F2.8 include:
  • STM Motor for smooth focusing when recording video
  • Compact size and light weight — similar to RF50mm F1.8 STM
  • Minimum focus distance of 5.11”
  • Maximum magnification of 0.26x
  • 43mm filter thread

Canon RF100–400mm F5.6–8 IS USM Lens

Truly Telephoto Possibilities

The Canon RF100–400mm F5.6–8 IS USM provides users with a versatile and popular zoom range that brings subjects closer with ease. It’s an affordable and easily hand-holdable entry into the world of super-telephoto, full-frame photography and video.

And, for the first time in a non-L-series lens, the RF100–400mm will accept optional Canon RF 1.4x and 2x tele extenders, offering even more telephoto potential in a lightweight package. 

Yes, the Canon RF100–400mm is an excellent gateway into the world of wildlife, nature, and sports photography.

  • Smooth and nearly silent AF during video recording
  • Superb close-focusing — at 400mm, excellent 0.41x magnification
  • 9-blade aperture, for smooth backgrounds/foregrounds
  • 67mm filter thread
