Canon Spring Collection

I was at the Canon Spring collection in London last week. It was an impressive affair and Canon added two nice professional lenses to their range. For photographers starting out they also introduced an entry level SLR, the EOS 450D, which has many features which were historically the preserve of more expensive models. In addition they also launched a couple of attractive HD Video Cameras for those of you looking at moving into the multimedia arena. However what impressed me most about Canon was not the range of innovations to compliment their already extensive range but the plans they have to service the Irish market and build on their No1 position in the region. Canon already provide training on their products but now they hope to be more visible at various events providing on the spot advice and possibly on the spot servicing – if they can work out the logistics of same. They also offer a loan replacement for equipment should a customer have a problem. But these are just the top line plans that they chatted about with me. I am sure they have other plans which will be unveiled over the coming months. It is good to see a camera manufacturer taking a serious look at how they service the professional market in Ireland.
