High Page Yields, Low Total Cost of Ownership and Media Versatility
The large ink tanks and high-volume ink bottles keep business printing cost low. A full set of ink delivers up to 14,000 prints in color or 6,000 prints in greyscale from a black ink bottle. For businesses that need to print more without sacrificing print quality, the economy mode helps save even more with 21,000 and 9,000 prints in color and greyscale, respectively.The MAXIFY GX5070 printer offers compatibility with a wide range of media. The ability to print on a variety of textures and print surfaces, reduces the need for businesses to have to buy different printers when they want to switch between envelopes, labels, glossy paper, and banner paper up to 1.2 m long.

Water Resistant1 Prints Resist Smudging
The use of pigment inks deliver water resistant1 prints on plain paper, lending a laser print-like quality not found in conventional inkjet printers. Text, color bars and charts will resist smudging when in contact with highlighter pens, while rain-splashes and accidental water spills can dry out without color bleeding to printed content.

More Efficiency and Productivity for Businesses
The MAXIFY GX5070 is capable of auto 2-sided printing and offers fast print speeds for high volume printing, combined with a paper feeding capacity of up-to 350 sheets, meaning less time spent refilling paper.The printer comes with a user-replaceable maintenance cartridge that is commercially available. This makes it less likely that the printer will need to be sent in for servicing, resulting in less printing downtime.

Compact, Space-saving Footprint
Home office or small business owners can make good use of limited space with this compact printer that can be placed on a retail store counter or reception desk, or on a shelf to save space.

Stay Connected and Protected All the Time
The MAXIFY GX5070 is built with modern businesses and home offices in mind, flexible enough to be placed anywhere in the office as they come with not just wired network interfaces, but also wireless2 connectivity. Advanced security features ensure the protection of sensitive documents and a secure connection to the printer and wireless network with WPA- Enterprise.

Canon EOS System Celebrates 35th Anniversary

Canon EOS System celebrates 35th anniversary
TOKYO, February 24, 2022—Canon Inc. will celebrate in March 2022 the 35th anniversary of the launch of the company's EOS System, which includes EOS-series interchangeable-lens cameras and a diverse range of system accessories, beginning with interchangeable EF lenses.

Canon's EOS System made its debut in March 1987 with the launch of the EOS 650 single-lens reflex (SLR) camera and EF lenses1. An acronym of "Electro Optical System" while also carrying the name of the Greek Goddess of the dawn, the EOS series saw first light in 1987 as the world's first fully electronic mount system, representing a new generation of AF SLR cameras.

During the film-camera era, EOS SLR cameras garnered high acclaim from a wide range of users for their innovative technologies and designs focused on Canon's key concepts of high speed and ease of use. During this period, the company launched the top-of-the-line professional model EOS-1 in 1989 and, with the introduction of the compact lightweight EOS Kiss (EOS Rebel XS and EOS 500 in other regions) in 1993, succeeded in expanding its user base.

Following the introduction of the EOS D30 in 2000, when the popularization of digital SLR cameras was in full swing, Canon developed such innovative models as the high-speed and high-image-quality professional-oriented EOS-1D (2001), the EOS Kiss Digital (2003, EOS Digital Rebel or EOS 300D in other regions) which appealed to a broad user base, and the EOS 5D Mark II (2008), which featured Full HD video recording, in an effort to offer products that fulfilled the company's new key concepts of high speed, ease of use and high image quality. In 2012, EOS video technology was transformed for the B-to-B sphere in the form of the Cinema EOS System, marking Canon's entry into the video production industry.

From there, Canon continued to serve an increasingly diverse range of users. In 2018, the EOS R System was born from Canon's desire to construct the ideal lens mount and maximize the appeal of its new RF lenses. The company followed up in 2020 with the EOS R5, the world's first digital camera to feature 8K recording2. The next year, 2021 witnessed the launch of the EOS R3, which boasts eye-control AF capability, and the EOS VR System for recording VR content.

Enabling visual expression through still photography, video, and even VR content, the EOS system expands the possibilities of visual expression with a lineup comprising a total of 21 EOS series cameras3 and 104 RF and EF lenses4. Further underwriting the company's long-running and expansive user base, Canon has maintained the world's No.1 share5 of digital interchangeable-lens cameras since 2003—a total of 18 years running.

Canon will continue to refine its diverse imaging technologies based on its core optical technology to create an even stronger EOS System that meets the needs of increasingly diverse users to promote the spread of photo and video culture.

1The EF35-70mm f/3.5-4.5, EF35-105mm f/3.5-4.5 and EF50mm f/1.8 were released alongside the EOS 650.
2Among interchangeable-lens digital cameras available as of July 8, 2020.
3Includes 5 digital cinema cameras for video production. As of February 24, 2022.
4Includes 30 EF cinema lenses (EF and PL mount) and 4 lens extenders. As of February 24, 2022.
5Shares of unit sales. Based on Canon research.

Tokyo, JAPAN — 1 February, 2022: On 15 January, 2022, a large-scale volcanic eruption and resulting tsunami caused extensive damage and loss of life in the Kingdom of Tonga. We at Canon would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to all those affected by this disaster and our thoughts go out to those suffering in its aftermath.

While we realise that the road to recovery will be challenging and time-consuming, we hope that the region will soon be able to begin the rebuilding and healing process.

To aid in the relief efforts for the victims, the Canon Group is making a donation of ten million yen (approximately AUD$123,146) to the Japanese Red Cross Society.

Many Tongan athletes have played for Canon’s rugby team, the Yokohama Canon Eagles, and four are currently on the team roster. The team collected donations for the relief effort during a recent match held on 23 January, and plans to continue collecting money for the cause. Money raised by the Yokohama Canon Eagles and other teams will be collected and donated via the Japan Rugby Football Union and Japan Rugby League One.

Note: Currency conversion based on exchange rate of AUD$1=JPY81.20.
